For new members of our team we promise full support and guidance right from the start and throughout your career at BeCaredFor.
New employees firstly undergo introduction training, which means they complete the Care Certificate, including additional areas for example, Lone Worker. This is delivered by our in-house training team covering everything from the basic health and social care qualification – to specialist areas such as medication management, moving & handling, Dementia and Parkinson’s.
Following this is the Shadowing protocol, where you will shadow members of our home care team in the community to enable you to put your learning into practice and demonstrate that you are competent to work alone. If at this point you will be eased in to working alone with support from the team at all points, and we will watch you grow in confidence.
