Staff and Training

Staff at The Priory are chosen particularly for their understanding and dedication as well as their caring skills. They have been trained to be attentive yet discrete, to give residents confidence and support. There is always a high staff to resident ratio, including waking night staff, to allow personal time with all of our residents.

Caring, Qualified Staff

Qualified care assistants are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide care in a professional and respectful way. For residents, The Priory will become their home and we would hope to continue to care for them, where possible, even in the final stages of their lives.

We place great emphasis on staff training and development to ensure we offer a quality service to all our residents. This ensures that high standards are maintained in line with the latest initiatives and developments in care practices.

We’re extremely proud of our team. We understand that choosing a care home can be a difficult decision and that’s why we invite you to speak personally to our Care Manager to find out more about The Priory.

Our aunt came to live at The Priory 3-years ago when her health started failing. She was a very private lady, but young at heart and loved the banter and interaction with the team who looked after her. She enjoyed the regular singalongs and took great care of her appearance using the weekly in-house visiting hairdresser. Her clothes were laundered and ironed in house with the same amount of care as was afforded to her. In the last year, she was displaying signs of dementia, but she spoke of "the luxury and good food at this hotel". It was very reassuring to hear this as visits were very restricted during the lockdown period. A fabulous home.

A team to be proud of

At The Priory Care Home, our staff are not just qualified; they exemplify a remarkable attention to detail and a caring nature that is second to none. We pride ourselves on providing 24-hour care, ensuring that each of our residents is comfortable, safe, and well-looked after.

Our team is always there when you need them, offering support, assistance, and companionship around the clock. We strive to create a 'home away from home' environment, where the atmosphere is as welcoming as it is therapeutic.
