Supporting Education and Training is Important to Vacenti
In order to be ‘work ready’ to provide high quality care and support we wanted to develop a program which supported resident confidence that new staff supporting them in care and services were confident, capable, skilled and caring. The Learning Hub brings together in a safe training space, 4 common environments or ‘Zones’ found in every Vacenti home; Dining, bedroom, ensuite and utility room. These zones have been developed to appear and function just like the environments found within a Vacenti home. Simulating care activities throughout each of these zones allows the new staff member to learn, apply and practice various concepts related to resident care and services. These activities include learning how we might safely support residents of differing needs through their dining service, care in the bedroom and bathroom, as well as how then we could manage linen, waste and cleaning in these spaces.
