Residential Homes
We work closely with Residential homes in the local area. These are permanent care homes for the elderly, adults with learning disabilities and children. They may be privately owned or run by charities or councils.
We supply staff to Private General Hospitals and also work closely with Hospitals specialising in Mental Health Conditions. We often place RGN’s into general hospitals but also recruit HCA’s with a clinical skill set to work in the same environment. For Mental Health Hospitals, we have a high demand for RMN’s and Support Workers.
Support Work
This involves supporting individuals who need help emotionally and practically, to help them gain independence and get the most out of life. Support work covers an array of areas such as mental health, challenging behaviour, learning disabilities and physical disabilities. Service users may be based in a residential home, hospital, supported living environment or a day centre depending on their condition.
Nursing Homes
Nursing Homes are very similar to care homes for the elderly. However, the care team on duty will always include at least one qualified nurse. Nursing Homes can therefore cater for people with a medical condition that requires nursing attention.
