Osbourne Court Care Home in Baldock is celebrating the success of two of its Care Assistants after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
Declan Miskelly, Care Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Alison and Calista on their success. We’ve all supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the care home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They’re a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Jo Vasey, Four Seasons Health Care Managing Director for the South East of England, said: “We’re all really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentors them through the programme. Here at Four Seasons we’re committed to developing our staff and this is one way we can do that. Well done again! All of your hard work and dedication has paid off.”
