The Care team at Lakeside House
Lakeside currently has 70 members of staff working at our Care Home and we're extremely proud of all of them.
We select our staff because of their caring attitude, and we train them in all aspects of care so you have peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands. Most of them have been with us for a long time, some from the very start, forming a well-knit team dedicated to providing care of the highest standard. And there’s a real, warm ‘family’ atmosphere at Lakeside, commented on by many visitors and resident’s own families.
All staff receive comprehensive induction training to our values and standards. Our Carers are trained to NVQ2 and our qualified nurses are encouraged and sponsored to attend courses relevant to care for the elderly.
Every employee has a personal training programme to develop appropriate skills in all areas of elderly care.
