Our team of skilled and experienced staff are dedicated to providing the very highest standards of care.  Continuity of staff ensures that our teams are knowledgeable, skilled and familiar with the home and more importantly with our  residents.

Training and development

The Grove has retained the Investors in People award and has an excellent training record.  As part of our latest investment in learning we have launched an e-learning system which allows our teams to develop at a time and pace that suits their individual needs.

We are proud of our staff and recognise the efforts that the team make and the impact they have upon the lives of our residents and family.

Working at The Grove

People have to be dedicated to do the jobs they do at The Grove. Our work is challenging but immensely rewarding.  Working in a care home or specialist care facility allows us to really build relationships with the residents and their relatives.  We have to provide support in sometimes challenging times and seek to enrich every residents quality of life.

Care Quality Commission Report (June 2013)

“We found new members of staff were well supported in terms of training opportunities and supervision with the manager and other senior staff. We also found new members of staff were not expected to undertake any tasks alone for which they had not been trained or for which they did not feel competent or confident.”

“Staff told us the manager and other senior staff were supportive and approachable. They also said they had formal one to one supervision sessions with a senior member of staff and informal day to day support and supervision. We were also told there were frequent staff meetings when staff could air their views and contribute to the development of the service. The records we looked at confirmed one to one supervisions, annual appraisals and staff meetings. The induction records of new members of staff, and discussion with the manager indicated new staff undertook a timely, comprehensive induction. This prepared and equipped them for working with the residents, and was also in accordance with government guidance.”
