The Care Practitioner role has been introduced by Barchester Healthcare, the organisation that runs the home, in order to further develop talented care staff and enable them to give more support to the nurses working at the home.
Jane is the first person at the home to complete the course and she is already making a big difference to maintaining and developing its standard of care.
Elizabeth Hisgson, General Manager at Westlake House, said: Jane is an integral member of the team who excels at what she does. I’m delighted that she has completed the training and progressed into this new role, which will help our home run even more efficiently and will enable Jane to develop her career further. Jane has worked so hard and I’m very proud of her.”
Jane said: “I really enjoyed learning lots of new skills and building on the knowledge I have gathered during my time working at the home. I look forward to growing further within this role and continuing to support the people we care for.”
