We are pleased to welcome Rashpal Johal to her additional role as Company Secretary, following 2 successful years working at head office in a variety of roles. Her banking experience is a real asset in this important position.

 

 

Impressions from Matthew Whitefield—Operations Manager 

…...After just 3 months Matthew is firmly entrenched at the five Eastgate Care, homes  finding that the staff are good hearted, kind, decent people. Having worked for other providers, discovering the excellent standards of accommodation for residents at Eastgate is refreshing.  Another massive plus is the support given by the relatives who offer their interest and involvement to life at the homes.  I feel comfortable with my position within the senior management team, the co-operation is good and we have a lot of respect for each other’s roles, which has really positive impacts on the care service we offer’

 

Managing Director Janine Morgan - Along with her administrative and financial skills, Janine brings to her new role at Eastgate nearly two year's experience of working at the White Swan Eastgate Head Office. She has comprehensive knowledge of Care Home Operations, a good understanding of customer supplier relations, is a great team player and Manager.

Promotion—In under 2 years with Eastgate Care and Caroline Carraher is rewarded with promotion to Care Home Manager. Starting out as Administration Manager at Alexandra House Caroline knew right from the start, when being interviewed, that she wanted to work in Care, at Alex!

Pairing up with an experienced Clinical Lead and a strong caring staff, provides the ultimate combination for care at Alex’

Review and Reward on Staff Pay

Eastgate reviews and rewards staff, following the increase in the living wage.

We are pleased to be able to announce to all our staff that we are going to be able to offer payment above the minimum wage (£7.50 for over 25's from the 1.04.17) and will be rewarding staff over 25 years of age - £8.00 per hour.

We are keen to retain our hard working staff and believe that they really are worth it.

We hope to be able to attract new staff with our proper learning and development opportunities, strong team spirit and purpose-built working environment, in addition to this new pay structure.

An extra bonus scheme is also in place for staff who recommend someone to fill an existing vacancy. A £250.00 reward is being offered - this could be an easy way to earn some spending money! Full details will be published in the staff newsletter.

Uniform is an important element of the work place, within the care home and for it to be 'fit for purpose' it needs to be comfortable, cool and smart. With this in mind high quality polo shirts, colour coded according to occupation, have been selected to complement the modern working environment. Colours are as follows;

Care - Burgundy

Seniors - Royal Blue

Nurses - Navy 

Activity - Yellow

 

These Changes are designed to demonstrate the importance of our teams and our appreciation of their commitment and loyalty to Eastgate Care.
