Newgrange has gained Gold Membership with HCPA, which demonstrates we have partnered with Herts Care Provider Association to go above and beyond in our Skills and Training of our staff, we have a robust Business Continuity Plan in place, and we are monitoring and always focusing on providing a good working culture for our team.
In focusing on our culture, we are recognising and rewarding performance, delivering staff wellbeing and gaining feedback, which helps us deliver continuous improvement.
This is due to our home demonstrating a commitment to ensuring the ongoing well-being of our team. We have designated four Well-being Guardians in our home, to help support the mental health and enhance the wellbeing of our staff.
These guardians are trained in spotting signs and symptoms if someone is struggling, how to have a supportive conversation and when to signpost the individual onto the appropriate support.
These individuals will have ongoing training in matters related to mental health to develop their skills set in this area.
