The Oaks Care Home in Blyth is celebrating the success of Care Assistants Karen Downs and Gillian Cottrell after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
The Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Karen and Gillian on their success. We’ve 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 home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They are 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.
Amanda Cunningham, North East Managing Director, said: “Here at Four Seasons we take great pride in our CHAPs programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. You have come through this long journey, and I want to thank you for your commitment and continued dedication. I also was to thank the mentors for their continuous help and support.
“By working together we can all help provide good quality care everywhere, ensuring resident get the service they deserve. Congratulations again to you all.”
