One of the benchmarks we insist on with all care workers is a minimum of two weeks’ training and support, which includes shadowing in the field with the training team.
During the first week, all new care workers at premier Homecare will watch the trainer as well as learn about care policies and procedures.
New care staff will also be given full training in a range of relevant areas, including personal care, dressing clients, mobility, medication handling, domestic cleaning and nutrition.
This training can be extended by a further week to ensure all new carers are confident and able to work with clients.
Premier Homecare also provides a huge amount of support to our care staff, such as a telephone helpdesk, mobile calls from supervisors and out-of-hours support for all care workers.
Some of the recent feedback we’ve had from new care workers joining us is that they only received 1-3 days’ training with previous home care providers.
All of our care staff are monitored in the field and given all the support required on an ongoing basis. Our training is designed to provide them with the best possible skillset, as well as ensure that clients are comfortable.
Furthermore, any care worker joining Premier Homecare who brings with them 12 months’ care sector experience will get a guaranteed hours contract.
We currently have care jobs in Bristol covering a range of shifts, including live-in care, and home care in the evenings, weekends and mornings.
Our basic day-time rate is £10.50 per hour, rising to £12 per hour for alternate weekend shifts and £15 per hour for those working every weekend.
