Big Thank-You's All Round, to Eastgate Staff

 

We would just like to say a big thank-you to you all, involved in taking brilliant care for Patrick Anthony. We know he was only with you for a short period of time and we didn't get to meet you all, but want to express our gratitude to each and everyone of you. Special thanks to Amanda and Caroline (Park House) and all the staff who took care of Patrick and family in his last few days.

Much Love, David, Jill & All Family & Friends

Belle Vue - October 2017 Thank you for all the excellent care and attention you gave my Dad. You saw him for the person he was and ensured he was treated with dignity and respect. You all work so hard and make such a difference to all the lives you touch. You have an amazing home and we will always be truly grateful.

From all Keith’s family.

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.

Top Achiever in Care & Support - 100% for Steph

We are proud to announce the achievements of Stephanie Johnson - Care and Support Co-ordinator across the five Eastgate Care Homes & send Steph a big - WELL DONE - for all her hard work over the last couple of weeks. 

Not only has she passed the teacher training course, but she has also qualified to deliver First Aid training to all our homes.

The whole programme involved a very complex training course, culminating in sitting over 5 exams.  This very comprehensive programme covered learning styles, anatomy & physiology and motivation. Passing all exams, with flying colours, means that Steph has her Level 3 award in teaching and assessing First Aid.

All 5 days of the training involved a lot of theory work, with a final theory lesson on Asthma and a Practical lesson on Regurgitation/Hygiene. I enjoyed the practical sessions on the course, this format was very productive for my learning.  I had done a lot of preparation and actually enjoyed the exams, as I was excited to demonstrate my knowledge. Over the week of the course I began to develop confidence in training sessions and on the last day - SUCCESS - I passed the final course with 100% !

Pictured, Steph - hands-on, with colleagues at Melbourne House, where she was Head of Resident Care in 2015.

I feel that going on this course was a stepping stone onto a brilliant future for training within Eastgate Care.’

Steph said 'Eastgate is a positive learning and development source, with senior staff acting as mentors and plenty of opportunities to develop skills and progress. My interest in the broad picture of an individual’s care sits well with the Eastgate philosophy of person centred care.’

I gained a lot of knowledge on training, which ultimately will drive my knowledge forward to provide good informative training sessions for the staff team which will lead the way for Eastgates future Training and Development.
