You are welcome to come and have a look and meet the people who are at the other end of the telephone.
Since the commencement of KC Carers Ltd the number of carers we have has grown and it is not possible to mention all of the carers here anymore and l dont want to miss anyone out as they all are very well experienced in their own field of expertise.
All our carers are encouraged to continue their progress in NVQ's or Diplomas and we do as much as we can to ensure they have the necessary tools to suceed.
All of our carers have access to further training on a daily basis, we try to match our carer to the clients needs, for example a client who has Dementia will have a carer whose area of expertise is dementia.
