Management and staff at Emerald Terrace work together to create a homely environment, whilst offering professional and compassionate care. Staff and management are required to acknowledge and understand the 7 Step Quality Service Method on a day to day basis when interacting with residents and their families.
All staff are professionally qualified to perform their specific roles, and their Registration and Police checks are all monitored to ensure that they are compliant and qualified to perform their roles.
Continuous improvement is fundamental to staff development and the service provided at Emerald Terrace. Training and professional development are key elements of our culture, and staff attend regular training sessions throughout the year to maintain and improve their professional standards. Continuous improvement is a dynamic process, with planned quality improvement audits integrated into day to day activities to monitor performance and identify opportunities to improve and demonstrate outcomes achieved. Continuous improvement ensures that our mission to excel in the services we provide, are maintained at the highest possible levels.
