Berwick House has 21 members of staff: 18 of whom are directly involved with providing care for the service users. Between them they have over 100 years care experience.  All our senior carers hold a NVQ level 3 in Health and Social Care and more than 55% of staff hold an NVQ level 2 and others are working towards their NVQ2.

Berwick house covers a wide range of training, not only do we complete the mandatory training. We go even further to complete other training courses such as catheter care, challenging behaviour, must and dysphasia, common health problems, end of life care and so much more. All staff re-train every year in dementia to keep our knowledge up to date to help us provide the best care we possibly can.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications
