The average 30-bed residential care or nursing home could save almost £250,000 a year – and improve client care and dignity at the same time thanks to Clos-O-Mat.

The Care Show 2015 will see Clos- o-Mat publicly unveil its ‘care home package’ aimed to give residents – in line with the Care Quality Commission Regulation 17 – greater dignity, privacy and independence. It also has knock- on benefits for staff and profitability.

Connect 2 Care (C2C) is a sister division of national hospitality and catering training provider Hospitality Industry Training (HIT), and the two organisations frequently work together in the same care organisations with HIT training the catering, cleaning, housekeeping and administrative staff, while Connect 2 Care trains the care teams.

Extensive sector experience means that C2C’s award-winning trainer- assessors recognise the needs of both the employer and the learner. Each of C2C’s trainer-assessors has worked in the health and social care sector so has valuable practical experience, local knowledge and an understanding

of what learners and employers need to forge a life-enhancing, or business- boosting relationship.

C2C consistently achieves a higher than average success rate of apprenticeship completion. More than 60% of C2C apprentices complete their apprenticeships and obtain either a BTEC or City & Guilds Diploma.

With a strong local focus, C2C offers health and social care apprenticeships at all levels. Since 2008 the company has supported 1,800 learners at over 1,500 employer sites across the country and holds two Grade 2 ‘Good’ OFSTED inspections.

The health and social care sector is experiencing rapid growth and is under increasing scrutiny through Ofsted style inspections, so businesses must ensure that premium quality care is provided by well-skilled staff. C2C offers a range of courses to address these requirements and can access government funding for eligible learners to help businesses reduce their training costs.

C2C truly understands that the care world is very much a team environment and a team is only as good as its weakest member. With that in mind, the benefits of training are clear – no one role is more important than another.

The wash/dry toilets do just that, so there is no need for manual cleaning with toilet tissue and all its associated problems, such as hand to body contact and the risk of fecal transfer/contamination. The Aerolet toilet lifts help people with flexion or balance problems easily get on and off the toilet.

The products will be on Clos-o-Mat’s stand, W138, enabling visitors to see how they work, and appreciate the benefits they bring, individually or combined, to the care home environment.
