Happy staff means happy residents at Peverel court care

At Peverel Court Care, it isn’t just our responsibility to look after our residents, but also to take care of our staff.

We have dozens of care staff working daily in our three care homes; Bartletts Residential Care Home, Stone House Nursing Care Home and Merryfield Nursing Care Home. We know that the way they feel about their work directly affects our residents.

We were surprised to hear recently that despite social care being the most popular of all apprenticeships for young people for the fourth consecutive year, more people are leaving care and support roles than any other sector.

If staff are leaving at an unsustainable rate then they aren’t happy. A rapidly changing workforce and unsatisfied staff are not in the best interest of residents. Unhappy staff don’t deliver good care.

For residents, those who take care of them are like a second family. Daily contact with skilled staff is the least residents expect. At Peverel Court Care, we go the extra mile, making sure that our staff are recruited with the right values and, just as importantly, feel happy, supported and comfortable.

One of the ways we make sure this happens is by working hard to make sure staff feel supported and appreciated every time they come to work.

Beverley Webb is Senior Care Lead and has worked with Peverel Court Care for nine years. She says she has no concerns about feeling underappreciated.

“Peverel Court Care have provided me with all mandatory training, as well as desired training. They have an open door policy if I have any concerns or queries or require information. They’re always there to help.”

Beverley says that this dedication to her wellbeing makes her job enjoyable.

“I am able to give one hundred percent commitment and feel I am valued in all I do within the company from all levels, from junior care staff to the manager and above.”

We want to be sure that we’re giving our residents the best care possible, so we’re dedicated to doing all we can to encourage our staff to stay working with us. They’re on our frontlines and looking after our residents every single day, so we need to be sure they’re committed to providing the same level of high quality care that we are as an organisation. If we invest in taking care of them, we know they’ll be extra committed to maintaining the high standards we expect them to.

Beverley believes that Peverel Court Care’s commitment to her wellbeing has a direct impact on the care and attention she provides.

“I look forward to coming into work and have a smile on my face, which has a tremendous effect on our residents.”

Taking care of residents and looking after our employees go hand in hand at Peverel Court Care, and that’s why we know that we provide some of the best care available.
