debbie About Us  StaffTeam1 About Us

Our Staff Team

Our reputation for reassurance, reliability and for providing care services of exceptionally high quality, is built upon the skills and experience of our staff team.

One of Crocus Homecare’s key policies is to employ only experienced care staff who have worked in Health and/or Social Care. They must be extremely competent, caring, well trained, reliable and highly responsive to the needs of vulnerable individuals and their families.

They must be able to empathise with, and be compassionate towards, those they care for. An ability to understand others’ emotions and feelings, especially at the most difficult of times, is essential, as is the ability to respond accordingly, always treating you, and family members with dignity and respect. Our care staff must always be dependable.

Our staff, like you, have high expectations, and always strive for excellence.
