Moving on up.........
Here at Oakfield we are dedicated to improving working standards and creating a homely atmosphere for all our residents, tenants and staff.
As part of the on going refurbishment at Easton Maudit we are currently modernising the upstairs kitchen and dining areas. We have knocked down the dividing wall to create a more open, light and airy space. New kitchen units have been installed and the whole kitchen area has been re-tiled. A feature wall has been created with a matching standard lamp and a fresh lick of paint and new carpets will complete the makeover. At our Yardley home the junk room has been cleared and a partition installed to form a new sensory room and a further office and meeting space. The sensory equipment will be provided by Rompa and to date directors, staff, family members and residents have all played a part in the development.
Some of our staff members have been attending the three day first aid course provided by St Johns. It is a legal requirment that we have a number of staff on shift who have this training to ensure we can act should an emergency arise. The training covers all areas of first aid as well as:
- Intial risk assessments and infection control
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bleeding
The training was professionally run and very informative.
