Where to Find the Best Care Home Service in Basingstoke?

Families want the best for their loved ones, whether they have physical disabilities or learning difficulties, and knowing they have an experienced team of staff means they can have peace of mind. That’s why choosing a care home is one of the most important decisions a person will make. Families will want to make sure the home has all the facilities to ensure their loved one is relaxed and feeling at ease in the surroundings.

Making Sure It Is the Correct Choice

Staff Are Key to a  Home’s success

Staff are the key to keeping the home running well, with many valuing the skills and experience that they bring to the job. Prospective workers can apply for care home jobs in Basingstoke which will allow them to gain practicl experience in supporting people with a learning disability and autism

Care workers are compassionate people who are dedicated and sympathetic toward the people they support in a variety of settings. Excellent care is what every relative looks for, and to excel in the caring industry the worker will require certain qualities such as empathy, patience, respect and a cheerful manner. A positive mindset can have a good impact on the mood of those they support. The carer may be one of very few with whom the client comes into contact during the day, so if they demonstrate a sympathetic, patient nature, then the loved one will feel more at ease.

Letter from Professor Martin Green OBE

Professor Martin Green OBE, CEO of Care England has sent out the letter below stating that social care is open for business but that it needs help and support.

He is absolutely right!  Our homes are open 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.

 

Now, more than ever, we need enthusiastic, dedicated people to work with our very special adults.  You do not necessarily need any experience, just the right attitude and the  desire to really make a difference to peoples lives.  Liaise Loddon is proud to be accredited as an Investor in People organisation. We strive to ensure the provision of great quality training for all of our co-workers at every level.

On joining, co-workers receive a thorough induction in the home, which is supported by training room sessions and a comprehensive induction folder. In addition, we develop the skills and knowledge to support the individuals in our homes through a range of topics including: autism, recording keeping & confidentiality, safeguarding and first aid to name but a few. All of which support completion of the Care Certificate or Management Induction Standards depending on the role.


Once probation is successfully completed, co-workers can then complete a number of qualifications in a wide range of subjects from Person Centred Care through to a Certificate in Health and Social Care.

We encourage our co-workers to progress within the Company where opportunity, a willingness to develop and strong commitment exist.

Liaise Loddon – The Place Where You Can Find Rewarding Careers

The experts say that COVID-19 will change our lives forever, even when the virus is defeated. Care work in Basingstoke is more important ever right now, which is not going to change in the future. Do you have what it takes to be a support worker in Basingstoke with Liaise Loddon?

Who will you be looking after?

Our service users have severe learning disabilities  and autism, but we always remember that they are also brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, friends and neighbours. Some of our service users have other medical issues, such as epilepsy, so we will also teach you how to support people with these needs. We currently support 49 people in our homes and are proud of the support we provide.

We aim to help our service users to live rich and fulfilling lives within their communities and to play to their individual strengths; in short, we want our  service users to reach their full potential.

Where will you work?

We have a number of small care homes in and around the Basingstoke and Romsey areas, with the emphasis on homes. We don’t run large institutions – our homes really are homes where a few people can live together in a supportive and friendly environment. Some are self-contained flats; others are shared houses.

What’s in it for you?

We ensure that all our co-workers are suitably qualified, which means getting a mandatory care certificate. As part of our ongoing learning and development programme, we will support you in getting this if you are new to a caring career. We provide training by way of classroom training, online training and one-to-one support.

In addition to the opportunity for ongoing career development, we offer an employee assistance programme, an occupational health service, sick pay (dependant on your length of service), shared parental leave, emergency dependants’ leave, and adoption leave.

We have been awarded the Investors in People accreditation, which is the international standard for people management. We think it is important that our people know what is going on, which is why we publish a weekly newsletter. We also hold two internal conferences every year, which many of our people attend. We use these conferences to share our business objectives and ask our colleagues to help us to develop these and to continually deliver our superb support.

In addition, we run an annual co-worker survey. Combined with regular conversations with your manager, this enables you to provide us with feedback to help us work together in a cycle of continuous improvement.

We also offer an excellent benefits package for our co-workers, which includes a good pension scheme, seven weeks’ holiday (including bank holidays) pro-rata, a refer a friend scheme, and an annual awards night where we can dress up and celebrate our successes.

If this sounds like something you would like to be part of, contact us for further information.
