We have 30 full-time staff in place when we are fully occupied, all of which are assisted and encouraged to achieve NVQ qualifications. We subscribe to the Codes of Conduct and Practice for Social Care Workers and Employers of Social Care Workers published by the General Social Care Council, a copy of which is available for inspection at the home.

Our staffing levels at Mount Olivet actually exceed the levels required by the registration authority and those recommended by the Residential Care Forum in the model Care Staffing in Care Homes for Older People, prepared for the Department of Health.
