Feeling Included “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”

One question we ask when recruiting into our care team is “what do you want from your job”. A response we hear a lot is “I just want to fit in somewhere”.

We all have a desire to be a part of something, to be a part of a group, to feel like we belong. It is the best feeling in the world to feel wanted, to be a part of something, to be valued.

The feeling of not fitting in; feeling left out, can be devastating and can leave a profound long-lasting effect on us, on our sense of confidence and self-worth.

Our Community:

Feeling that we are a part of a community like Heanton Nursing Home can lift us when we are down and gives us the capacity to deal with what challenges come our way.

Throughout your recruitment journey we ensure you are supported, and this starts with the recruitment team and is carried through to your first day in the home … but the support doesn’t end there! You will have a dedicated buddy in the home who will be there to guide and empower you, along with a wellbeing team that will check in with you from time to time and also to be there at the end of a line 24/7 should you want to talk.

Our Training:

Part of our training is via eLearning, however we know eLearning alone won’t equip you for the emotional challenges that you will face as a Care Assistant. So, we created our own training academy and now in its fifth year, we are seeing the wellbeing of team members and the people we support and care for increase enormously.

Our training is for all team members across all grades, all departments, all age groups and all genders.

• Paid breaks
