Our Staff are without doubt our best asset. We have a team of carers with exceptional skill and understanding of their profession. We pride ourselves on having over 30 staff working shifts day and night.
No member of staff at Spring House works more than 40 hours per week with our maximum shift being 10 hours.
Staff who are tired are not able to engage with residents effectively.
We have a very strong senior team who work together to ensure that our standards remain high, staff are properly trained and that residents welfare remains our number 1 priority.
Living Wage for Spring House Care Staff
At Spring House we are passionate about care. It is after all what the home is about. The care we offer is provided by our excellent care staff. We believe that if you want the best possible care then you have to pay accordingly.
This is why at Spring House we are committed that the minimum pay our care staff should receive is the “Living Wage” . This is calculated by the Living Wage Foundation. Outside of London the pay rate is currently £8.15 per hour.
We are also committed that the maximum number of hours a member of staff will be rota’d to work is 38 hours per week, our maximum shift length is 10 hours and the maximum number of days you can work in a row is 5. It is our view that you cannot provide high quality care if you are tired!
