While fulfilling their day to day job at Craig Healthcare, some of our staff continue to study while gaining practical experience at the same time.
Carla Sibson and Jenna Kelly are carers at Cramlington House and they recently completed their Level 2 Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care, meaning they both now officially hold a Level 2 Health and Social Care diploma.
Lucy Craig, Managing Director at Craig Healthcare, said: “Massive well done to Carla and Jenna for their achievements – we’re so proud of them! They’ve worked incredibly hard and achieving their Level 2 diploma is an absolute credit to both of them that demonstrates their passion and commitment to their job and an eagerness to continue to learn and develop their care provision skills. As a company, it’s important that we cater for members of the team to undertake apprenticeship programmes, gaining hands on experience from their role as a carer, complemented by professional qualifications. We want to provide a workplace environment that encourages staff to develop both personally and professionally, and apprenticeships are a great way to do this.”
"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
