We are committed to providing all our staff with opportunities to undergo further training to enhance their skills and qualifications.

All members of the Stanfield Nursing Home team, including ancillary staff, attend courses regarding person-centered care and protecting vulnerable adults. This ensures we are always fully equipped to meet all residents’ physical and emotional needs. Staff also attend food hygiene courses to ensure residents’ health and safety is not compromised in any way.
