Staff

Thorntoun is synonymous with total respect for its residents. We don't just take the person under our wing; we take the time to care.

Established in 1991, Thorntoun is at the forefront of care standards in Ayrshire. We cordially invite you to view our care home at your earliest convenience or call for helpful advice on our admissions procedure.

The elevated levels of training here are rare for this size of care home. Thorntoun is permitted to train its own staff and is one of the first training organisations in the country to attain approval to run the new SVQ care award.

Professional study plus in-house training are conducted frequently by our Training Officer, who has extensive experience in this field. Various external training organisations are also engaged to provide courses not offered in-house.

Rest assured, our home is registered with the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care and inspected regularly. If you wish to see a recent report, all you need to do is ask.

Staff Training

Staff Training

Thorntoun has earned a distinguished reputation as a training centre of excellence. We invest heavily in our people and their constant development, which brings immense reassurance to residents and their families as well as a low staff turnover. Only those who pass stringent staff checks are ever recruited.

All care assistants undertake training in health & safety, first aid, equal opportunities and general resident care as part of their demanding SVQ training. Our trained nurses undertake Workplace Assessor Training to TDLB standard to assess the work of our care assistants.
