We have a staffing ratio of 1:3, the highest in the area

Richmond House has a diverse and highly skilled team of staff on hand 24 hours a day to ensure that our residents receive the best possible care. Our care team is made up of Senior Care Assistants (SSSC Registered Practitioners) and Care Assistants (SSSC Registered Support Workers). All our care staff are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and adhere to the SSSC Codes of Conduct. We have a staffing ratio of 1:3, the highest around the area. We believe more staff means that staff have more time to spend with residents or deal with complex medical needs.

All our Senior Care Assistants are required to have an SVQ 3 in Health & Social Care, and all Care Assistants must undertake an SVQ 2. Our staff also regularly undertake training in a wide range of subjects including medication,  dementia, manual handling, continence, palliative care and fire safety. The management of Richmond House is overseen by our Board of Trustees, each of whom have a particular interest in Richmond House. The daily running of the home and the overall care of our residents is overseen by our Manager (SSSC Registered Manager) and Deputy Manager (SSSC Registered Supervisor).  

We also have an Activities Coordinator (we are a NAPA registered organisation) who provides and organises a wide range of activities for residents during the week. This includes both group and one-to-one activities. Our Activity Programme varies from week-to-week but includes activities such as craft, concerts, bus trips, interaction with other local community groups (e.g. Soroptomists, LOGOS Youth Project, Songbirds, etc.) Our staff love to socialise with our residents too and we hold staff and resident 'social afternoons' where all can get together for an afternoon of fun games and socialising.
