The Terrys Cross Trust was granted Care Quality Commission Status in June 2021 (CQC Provider ID 1-10483100441). It took over from the previous charity with the same name, Trustees and staff. A small highly-qualified team strives to create a family atmosphere, supporting individuals to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. The team consists of a Registered Manager, a team leader and seven carers, four of whom are qualified, with NVQ Level 2 or above. The Care Certificate is also part of new staff induction. All staff undergo mandatory training and are reviewed on a regular basis. All new staff have a 2 week induction period, which gives them time to get to know the residents and staff. In addition, there are a housekeeper and two cooks. There are staff on duty 24/7 and there is an alarm system for use by residents. All residents have individual electronic care plans, highlighting their individual wishes and preferences and for recording their everyday support.
