Equal Opportunities

 

The Homes Equal Opportunities Policy

Our Principles

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for staff in our employment and residents who receive our services, and will abide by the following principles:

 

N

As an employer we accept the statutory requirements laid down in the Equalities Act 2010. 

N

It is unlawful for an employer or employee to discriminate against or to treat an individual differently on the grounds of colour, race, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, belief or age. We will ensure that no one who applies for a job or staff employed by us receives less favourable treatment on any of these grounds.

N

We are committed to the active promotion of equal opportunity in our services, and we recognise that the achievement of equal opportunities will require the participation of all staff and a commitment to this policy.

Service Users

In our services to our residents we will ensure that:

N

All residents are treated as individuals.

N

We recognize and have a positive attitude to the colour, race, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, belief or age of our residents.

N

When planning and delivering care to our residents, our staff will take into account the different and special needs of each resident.

Training

We will as part of our training programme ensure that staff are aware of their responsibilities in promoting and achieving equal opportunities.

TC – Ludlow

"We have been to see our relative on a number of occasions. He seems to be well looked after and cared for. All the staff seem to be extremely helpful to us and to the residents. The standards are very high and the same, and care is excellent."

SP – Clun

"A very warm, friendly welcome. Hendra House is a lovely small residential home which really does feel like a 'real' home. Staff are very kind and caring and very responsive to the varying needs of the residents in a relaxed and comforting manner. Residents are socially engaged throughout the day. My mum immediately settled in."

D – Resident

"I am happy with the care I get in this home. If I have a problem with anything I only have to tell a member of staff and they deal with it."

SR – Ludlow

"I couldn't ask for a better place for my Mum to live in than this home. If I have any worries, they are dealt with"

B K РCardiff (Son-in-law of Resident)

There's always a warm welcome from the staff and nothing seems too much to ask for. Dad's room is always clean and tidy, and they make sure he has squash and biscuits to drink offering us some too. There's always something going on the day. The room and the staff keep the residents engaged.
