Quality Assurance – Care Staff Recruitment
Our Staff Team is made up of experienced and qualified carers.
All have been employed previously in Health and/or Social Care, and bring a range of different caring experiences with them.
Crocus Homecare operates a stringent recruitment procedure, employing only those who can provide the highest standards of care. We employ care staff who can demonstrate that they can provide care with genuine compassion, understanding and respect for each individual and their families.
We also undertake rigorous tests to ensure staff suitability before any employment with Crocus Homecare can be finalised.
- We check all staff with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) to help ensure that unsuitable people do not work with vulnerable groups.
- A full Health Declaration is completed.
- A full working history is completed
- Detailed reference checks are obtained
All care staff undertake full Induction programme as part of their introduction to employment with Crocus Homecare.
All staff are supervised regularly; their practice is observed; comments sought from customers and their families, and annual appraisals undertaken.
This helps ensure that our care staff continuously advance their skills whilst continuing to deliver excellent care.
Crocus Homecare gives a high priority to continued staff training and development, including mandatory, and ‘refresher’ training in Manual Handling, Infection Control, Adult Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Dementia and other courses intended to broaden levels of staff awareness and understanding.
