People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
