The home, which has been named after Thomas Henry Foley (1808-1869), the fourth Baron Foley of Kidderminster, is recruiting for various positions including care management, care assistants and kitchen and domestic staff. The new team will complete a thorough induction period before the home opens when they will provide first-rate residential and dementia care to up to 66 residents.
FoleyGrange, located on Silverwoods Way, has benefitted from a £12m investment and will be provider Ideal Carehomes 27th home. The site boasts a lavish cinema, an airy botanical room leading onto landscaped gardens, a traditional tea shop with a balcony, beauty parlour and opulent Sky Bar.
The caring staff team will be focused on creating a welcoming and fulfilling lifestyle for the people who live at Foley Grangevia their round-the-clock support, regular and varied activities, healthy and nutritious food and laundry and housekeeping service.
Staff will have access to some of the most innovative and supportive care technology in the industry and will be provided with a recently updated uniform, offered in a range of colours determined by job role, as well as all the PPE they require.
Sarah Colling, Head of Development and Engagement and regional finalist for the Great British Care Awards within the ‘Workforce Development’ category, said, ‘It is a great time to join the Ideal Carehomes family and even to start a career in social care if you are new to the sector. Over the course of the pandemic, the media has really shone a light on how amazing care workers are and it is wonderful to see them get the recognition they deserve.
We have unique training and development initiatives through our Ideal Academy, including industry-leading training, career progression opportunities via a range of learning resources such as E-learning and specialist workshops – there are always opportunities to progress for the right people’.
Sarah knows that supporting the Ideal Carehomes staff team is the first priority and has recently introduced a ‘Wellbeing Pathway’ to the Ideal Academy. The pathway consists of a 24 hour counselling support line, face to face stress management training, regular mindfulness techniques and advice on nutrition, exercise and ways to reduce stress and improve overall health and wellbeing.
The company also recognises and celebrates their staff team each year with a glitzy awards gala evening, which sees thousands of nominations from colleagues, residents and their families and friends for carers and ancillary staff who have consistently gone the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of others.
Managing Director, Stacey Linn, said: ‘We are very excited to be opening our first luxury care home in Kidderminster and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are seeking fulfilling careers within social care. Whilst our environments are second to none, it is our staff team who make our homes the best places to live, and who help our residents to retain their independence whilst supporting them to live an active lifestyle. We are looking for people who really want to make a difference and would like to be part of the Foley Grangestory right from the very start’.
