Working for Cumbria Care - Keeping people safe

"I have never had any concerns about working in a care home. We haven't had a shortage of PPE at any point, everything is on hand so there is nothing to be frightened of. It felt like one of the safest places to be and it was nice to go out to work and spend time with colleagues." Cathy Lister, Support Worker at Inglewood Residential Home

Your safety is a priority. Our teams have taken all necessary steps and followed national guidance to make sure staff and the people who we care and support for are as protected to the best of our abilities.

  • Everyone working in a frontline role is eligible to have the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Everyone has access to all of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and we have good supplies, so there is never any worries about running out or reusing disposable equipment
  • You will be trained in infection control procedures and how to use the PPE to make them as effective as possible
  • We offer regular testing for our staff and residents
  • Frequent deep cleaning is being carried out
  • We have limited the number of people who come into care homes and our staff are working in bubbles
  • We continue to update our working practises in line with infection control and government guidance
