Lordington Park Residential Care Home's Staff
At Lordington Park we appreciate it can be the small things that go a long way in making a difference to a resident’s stay from offering a friendly smile to a listening ear. All the staff at Lordington Park work hard to ensure the standard of service provided across the board meets the levels our residents come to expect, resulting in a happy place to live.
Lordington Park employs a dedicated and caring staff of 20 care workers who provide 24-hour care to our residents. The registered manager is Jessica who has over 20 years’ experience of owning and managing a residential care home for the elderly. Jessica’s warm, friendly and approachable persona makes her popular amongst the residents.
We firmly believe in the importance of selecting the right staff to ensure the high standards are maintained. In addition to the 20 care workers, Lordington Park also employs domestic staff, a grounds man and two gardeners.
Training and Care
All staff undergo a training programme that meets Skills for Care and CQC requirements. At Lordington Park we also encourage continuous development amongst staff. Above and beyond formal training our staffs are taught best practice techniques; those small details and attention to detail, learned and perfected over the years; make a huge difference to day-to-day care. The majority of staff have been at Lordington Park for many years, this sense of continuity and familiarity is something very special – and not something gained from just training.
Mrs Rutland and Mrs Smith are both trained Registered General Nurses and are responsible for the daily organisation and management of the home. Our residents’ health and wellbeing are our main priorities and as such we regularly liaise with the doctor and community nurses.
In addition the dentist and alternative therapists visit the home when requested by a resident whilst the hairdresser visits weekly and a chiropodist every six weeks.
