Our programme has designed and developed a wide range of resources to enhance the training and skills of our care staff to deliver better and safer care in Sutton.
In addition to our resources being implemented in all care homes in Sutton and relevant partner organisations, we aim to make them more widely available to give all care givers in Sutton an opportunity to learn and develop. They are also available for all stakeholders from other specialist areas and professions with an interest in replicating these.
A list of our resources is included below.
We encourage our partners and other providers to utilize Sutton Homes of Care resources. If you do use these resources please ensure to source where they came from and let us know by e-mailing email@example.com
We understand that often our resources will be adapted to suit your establishment’s needs but please ensure that the Sutton Homes of Care vanguard is recognized for developing the original resource.
We have a range of e-learning modules available for care home staff to improve their knowledge and skills in areas such as continence care, dementia and person centred thinking. Click on the relevant links to access these courses.
