If you want something done, give it to a busy person! 21st century living certainly does not seem to give us any more time, despite all the labour saving devices and advancements in technology. We have increasingly efficient machines to make chores easier, faster and faster computers to improve work efficiency and more cars than ever before to assist us in speedier lives. We are expected to manage professions, families, households and a social life and still have time to look perfect!

But there are still 24 hours in a day in which to live our lives, which often seem to be over loaded and action packed. The caring profession knows that its staff are competent, busy people with a wide range of skills. Which is why flexible hours, adjustable working routines, a good salary and paid travel time are offered to the right people.

It is also understood that the care you provide for others outside your home, should not conflict with the care you need to give inside your home to your own family and friends. The central office at Bridges Home Care uses the latest technology to manage individual Care Plans for each client. The experienced administrative team absorb situations as they occur and still manages to provide reliable care and a supportive environment for the Care Team.

Reliability is a key element of the award winning care service provided by Bridges Home Care. This hallmark of quality is evident in the way in which not only clients are supported and their families encouraged, but also in the way the Care Team is personally and professionally managed, trained and empowered to work in a divers but inspiring environment.

Bridges believes in building up each individual care worker so that they can be the best they can be. This means using their existing skills and developing talents for a different application in care. Many different professions have become excellent care workers, such as a hair dresser, school dinner lady, pilot and postman. All bring their experience to a new career and have something original and special to offer their clients. Nothing is wasted.

Bridges training offers written and practical training, which develops towards a Diploma in Health and Social Care. Specialist care skills are also provided for certain needs such as those living with a dementia. Staff and systems are regularly assessed and maintained through Care Management Reviews, so that we can offer the best care to our clients, enabling them to retain their independence and stay in their own homes. We encourage the full potential from our team so that they can be the best that they can be.

A recent client has said “Carers and office staff are friendly and helpful. Carers appear to have had good training or previous experience of caring. The standards of all staff are much better than other care providers we have used in the past for dementia care and broken leg, shoulder.” Why don’t you consider a career in care?
