Respectful Care is founded on two core principles that govern the way it operates:
We recognise that each of our clients is an individual, someone with their own diverse needs and requirements. That's why we invest our time getting to know you, and together, create a personalised plan to enable you to live a life that is as independent, active and fulfilled as possible. This ensures that you are happy and confident that your loved ones are safe and enjoying the highest standards of homecare at all times.
At Respectful Care, we recognise that our Support and Care Workers are trained professionals undertaking rewarding but challenging work. We don't believe that our staff should suffer poor working conditions on pay that, in the very worst cases, is below the minimum wage. Recent stories in the media have damaged the care sector and the reputation of homecare providers. We do things differently at Respectful Care.
We have hand picked the very best team, from head hunted care management professionals to fully trained and qualified Support and Care Workers who visit our clients in their homes. We offer fantastic working conditions, so our staff are motivated and rewarded for the work they undertake, and don't feel unable to do their job properly because of unachievable targets and time restrictions. This means that your loved one will be given the care and attention they require by trained professionals in an environment that they are comfortable in. We believe that 'There's No Place Like Home', and continually strive to provide a level of care that maintains the highest possible standard of living for all clients.
The Respectful Care management team has over 40 years' experience in the care sector. We understand the range of needs that our clients may have, and always strive to find solutions to overcome any issue – putting people first in every scenario.
We require all of our Support and Care Workers to be highly qualified. Every member of the team has, as a minimum, a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care or 12 months' experience in the care profession. After 3 months of employment, every member of staff is automatically enrolled on the Level 2 qualification if they don't already possess it.
In November 2013, Respectful Care was registered with the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England, this is a mark of quality that recognises safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.
Respectful Care has established a number of key partnerships with local organisations that ensure we are at the forefront of innovative homecare in Mansfield, Ashfield and North Nottingham.
Our partnership with Vision West Nottinghamshire College, one of the country's largest and most successful Further Education providers, enables those who want to enter the care profession to gain valuable experience, while Respectful Care staff benefit from bespoke training programmes offered by the college.
