Focus on our Home Care Assistant Training Team in Bristol
Premier Homecare outline what it takes to be a Home Care Assistant in Bristol
One of the most important parts of our award-winning care company is that of our Home Care Assistant Training Team in Bristol.
When a new carer joins Premier Homecare, they join one of our training teams for a minimum of two weeks.
The first week is based on them observing a trainer, with the new starter being observed during the second week.
This allows each new Home Care Assistant to get to know the role in full and to cover all areas including personal care, shopping, and medication management.
Every new care worker at Premier Homecare goes through this process, to ensure that all staff are trained and confident.
Once each Home Care Assistant is confident, they can go on client visits themselves.
Home Care Assistants must have a good rapport with service users, be able to carry out visits to a high standard and be confident, before being able to visit clients without being supervised.
Premier Homecare provides on-the-ground trainers who all have a passion for providing high-quality home care services in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
We currently have five Home Care Assistant Trainers at Premier Homecare, all of whom have worked in previous Care Assistant positions.
They all know the Premier Homecare way of delivering outstanding home care and are guided and supervised carefully on an ongoing basis.

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...
