Nursing Home Staff
We are very proud of our kind, caring and well trained staff team led by Registered Manager Mrs Joby Jomy
Edgemont View has an established staff team and we rarely have the need to use agency staff so we are able to provide our residents with excellent continuity of care. Our staff are all recruited from the local community and we have a very robust initial employment process.
The team of approximately 50 staff is led by our Manager, Joby Jomy. Joby is a qualified Registered General Nurse with many years of experience in caring for the elderly. Joby has many years of management experience in the Nursing Home environment. There is always a trained nurse in charge on each shift.
The Manager is supported by a whole range of devoted staff including a team of Registered Nurses, care assistants, chefs, domestics, a gardener and a maintenance person. Qualified care staff are always there for you – they are on duty day and night and all of them have been carefully selected and trained to deliver sensitive and skillful care.
Many of the staff have worked at Edgemont View for a number of years, live locally, and are familiar with the area, which residents often find reassuring. The housekeeping team works especially hard to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness throughout the home.
Night staff check and secure the building each night, and will make hourly checks to ensure you are comfortable, if you wish. Residents can always call for immediate assistance, if needed. Edgemont View is fully committed to staff training and development, and most care staff are qualified nurses or have NVQ 2, 3 or 4 qualifications. All new care staff have induction training within the first six weeks of employment, followed by foundation training within six months of employment.
Edgemont House has been providing ‘home from home', nursing care for over 20 years. It is owned and managed by a group of local GPs and two directors with commercial experience.
All our staff are taken through a comprehensive induction program and continue to have regular training and practical supervision throughout the year. We use an accredited training company to deliver our sessions and also have Q C F (previously N V Q ) training and support from City of Bristol College. Edgemont View also provides work placements for students on occasion enabling local young people to experience the field of care. We have a network of care workers, with a wealth of experience, most have an NVQ level 2 or 3.
Our supportive housekeeping and catering staff make up the team at the home.
