The staff team hold a range of qualifications relevant to their roles such as NVQs in Health and Social Care, Counselling qualifications and Psychology Degrees.
Staff members receive ongoing supervision and have a personal development plan based on regular appraisals.
Almond Villas has a strong commitment to the ongoing training and development of our staff teams. In-house training is provided across a range of topics including The Rehabilitation Process and the Role of the Worker. Additional training is also provided or sourced as determined by the needs of our residents.
Each of our three homes have a Team Leader in place whose responsibility it is to ensure that our residents needs are met on a day-to-day basis.
All residents have a named Key-worker who develops a therapeutic, working relationship with them. Key-workers support residents to compile their Recovery Plan, including setting achievable goals to increase their independence and reviewing these on an ongoing basis.
The staff team, including team leaders, key-workers and support workers all work closely together to enable residents to achieve their goals and to regain their independence.
