Buckland Care employs a wide range range of people from all walks of life; from nurses and carers to kitchen and laundry staff. Experience is always an advantage, but not always a requirement.
We are constantly looking at ways to improve and go the extra mile within our company. We invest heavily in our staff through training and new systems in order to ensure we are providing the best care possible.
At Buckland Care being caring and understanding is of paramount importance. Working or living in a care home can be very emotional and we all support each other like a family. Moving into a new environment is always daunting whatever your age. We ensure that we listen to staff, residents and relatives and their input guides changes we make at the homes.
We strive to always create a positive, homely atmosphere for both the staff and the residents’ to enjoy. Some residents may join us under difficult circumstances, and it is every single staff member’s job to make the final years of a person’s life the best they can be. Positive attitude is a choice and our staff team know that a smile goes a long way. We start every day thinking, ‘what can we do today to make a resident’s day even better?’
Everyone is important and each role is vital for the home to run smoothly and for our residents to receive the best care possible. We value our staff team and in turn our staff are proud of the home in which they work and the difference they are making to residents’ lives.
We place a lot of importance on always being considerate and kind to each other and the residents we care for. Good manners are a fundamental way of life at Buckland Care.
