Our Staff

All Cornwall Care staff share the same dedication, focus and passion when it comes to giving quality care to our clients.
Fully trained to be able to care for and understand the lives of people with varying disabilities and conditions, our staff are committed to supporting their clients and promoting their independence, developing their knowledge so they can give the most effective and loving care possible.

Our in-house award-winning training ensures that all our staff teams are fully qualified, professional people with a genuinely caring, respectful and sensitive approach.

Our Home Care staff provide support to individuals across Cornwall, helping them to remain independent in their own homes and honing their skills to suit the individuals that they care for. Our Supportive Lifestyles staff train to fit the needs of the person they are supporting and our Flexicare team are trained to provide support across all our services.

Our Training & Development

We are nationally recommended and awarded for our training and career development and are committed to helping our staff achieve the qualifications they need to reach their career goals. We know how important it is to understand our residents and their illnesses, particularly dementia and mental health diagnoses which can so often be misunderstood. That is why we ensure that Cornwall Care staff are fully trained in every aspect of their role, including dementia care and ethics.

Many of our care and support staff specialise their care knowledge to fit the care that individual they are looking after undertaking further research and studies to benefit that person. Some of our carers really go all out – we even have a member of staff who chose to learn a bit of Chinese, just so that she could sing Happy Birthday in her client’s mother tongue! We actively encourage our staff to learn more skills and to keep their knowledge up-to-date and are committed to supporting them throughout their career development.

Cornwall Care Our Staff 2019 Outstanding Staff Awards.jpgOur Rewards

We feel that it is really important for Cornwall Care staff to be rewarded for their dedication and hard work. For a long time now we have been running a scheme called ‘My Moments’ which rewards staff for their incredible achievements with a gift and a presentation by their colleagues.

To receive a ‘My Moments’ award, staff are nominated by their colleagues anonymously, so the awards are a great surprise! We also hold annual Cornwall Care Outstanding Staff Awards which are judged by a panel of external experts who present the awards on the day.

Our Promise

We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities at Cornwall Care. Our staff are as diverse and individual as our residents are. We have nurses and carers from all across the world and enjoy a variety of personalities and characters within our teams. We encourage our employees to treat one another and those we care for with honesty and respect, ensuring they are all given choices of activities and entertainment to suit them and that no one is left out.
