We are not a care agency

Our Home Care Workers are employed directly by Elite Choice Home Care

This enables us to provide better continuity of care and maintain our high standards. All of our care staff are required to have, or work towards a minimum of a Level 2 Qualification in Health and Social Care.

Where an applicant is not already is possession of such a qualification, they will be required to demonstrate extensive care experience. It is our policy not to employ Home Care Workers without previous care experience.

Induction

All new employees are required to attend comprehensive induction training which incorporates common induction standards and ensures they are familiar with our values, policies and procedures. They also receive any necessary specialist training and are given a comprehensive handover of the care plans of any clients they will be caring for.

New employees will be shadowed by an experienced member of the team until we are satisfied that they are able to meet the high standards of care provision that we require.

Employee Development

Once our employees have completed their induction programme, we work with them to develop a personal development plan to identify and support their professional development.

In addition to a formal annual development review, all of our employees receive formal supervision meetings at least once a quarter to review their development plans and discuss any feedback or concerns.

Our unique Care Connect System also means that our Home Care Workers are fully supported by the Management Team at all times.

Working for Elite Choice

We offer highly competitive rates of pay with enhancements payable for hours worked before 7am and after 6pm Monday to Friday and all day on weekends and public holidays. We also pay our Home Care Workers for their time and reimburse their business mileage between client visits.

We are an equal opportunities employer and it is our policy that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on any unlawful grounds.
