If you are a caring and believe you can support people to achieve that extra quality of life then we will be pleased to hear from you.

To care for or support people it is first necessary to care about people.  A care job is not just about doing things for people its also about encouraging them to do things for themselves.  Helping older people to continue to do what they can for themselves is an essential part of our work. Care work is not simply about undertaking tasks for people, its also about encouragement, motivation and helping to ensure that anyone for whom we provide a service has as fulfilling a life as possible.

Training and Development

At Ventry Residential Care, we believe that our most valuable asset is our care team. We have a dedicated induction and training manager who works with all our staff to firstly help them to identify their potential and then to support each individual to reach their full potential.

All of our staff are initially supported through our Care Certificate Workbook and are issued certificates of achievement as they reach each of the goals set.

Once complete staff enter into a Personal Development Plan which identifies their strengths and weaknesses and sets out an achievement action plan. This Personal Development Plan is reviewed periodically and staff are supported until they are working to their full potential. In all cases we try to ensure all our care staff are educated to an NVQ level 2 status and that our senior care staff reach an NVQ level 3 status. Additionally we identify when specialist short courses are required to meet the changing needs of my residents. This then enhances the skill and knowledge of our staff so that they are motivated, engaged and able to provide the best quality care to our residents. Our employee supporting framework is set out to ensure our core principles of Care, Comfort and Compassion are promoted each day.
