HC-One’s Rose Court Care Home in Radcliffe, Manchester, has been praised for its role in a government-backed pilot scheme.
Rose Court was one of a select group of services chosen to take part in the Teaching Care Home scheme, led by Care England and funded by the Department for Health.
Chai Patel, chairman of HC-One, said: “We at HC-One are incredibly proud of what our colleagues at Rose Court have achieved through their participation in this exciting pilot scheme. We are committed to providing the kindest care, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to contribute to innovation and professionalisation in the sector.
“We have already developed an industry-leading, multi-award winning training and career development programme for colleagues, which is in use across all HC-One homes. The pilot scheme at Rose Court allowed us to build on these existing programmes and reinforce our commitment to providing the kindest care.”
The pilot scheme aimed to improve the learning environment for care home staff, develop new undergraduate nurse apprenticeships and encourage nurses to join learning placements in care homes.
A report on the pilot highlighted how it helped staff at Rose Court to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in using reflective practice to improve their work, as well as increased confidence in their ability to carry out their work.
