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.

Right from the beginning I’ve felt very welcomed and supported by everyone that works at premier homecare. As I am new to care work, this has been important as at times it can be challenging, but I know that there is always someone there to help and guide me. From my initial interview to training, in the office and shadow training on visits, everyone has been extremely kind, informative and helpful. I am constantly learning new skills and enjoy meeting new people within their homes. Being able to support people to live independently is very rewarding.

Thank you for always being so lovely and cheerful. 🥰#happyemployee#team #carer #carerjobsbristol#premierhomecare#homecare... See MoreSee Less

As dementia progresses, it can often cause changes to a person’s eating and drinking habits, from their food preferences to eating less or eating more. Follow these four simples steps to help support someone living with dementia if they won’t stop eating.1. Look at whether your relative is drinking enough - thirst can often be mistaken for hunger.2. Think about whether your relative’s routine or circumstances have recently changed. They may be confused about when mealtimes are and seek food more often than usual.3. If your relative is overeating, try substituting high calorie foods with lower calorie versions and/or healthier foods such as salads, fruit and vegetables.4. Consult their GP before making any major changes to diet. Explore if there might be a physical or medical reason causing the eating habit changes, and if their health is being affected in a negative way. Changes in behaviour aren’t always cause for concern, so if the new eating habits isn’t having a negative impact on their health, think about whether it really is a problem.For more information on how to manage eating habits whilst living with dementia, visit bit.ly/47HpHvH...
