Avante Care & Support has recently seen its internal staff bank, ASB relocate to larger offices. The staff bank is Avante’s internal staff bank recruiting a wide range of skilled employees to work within its residential care homes.
The bank staff provide cover for staff vacancies for both planned and unplanned shortfalls in staffing. By having its own team of staff working within the bank it allows consistency of care across the homes as well as ensuring all shifts are covered.
ASB is a flexible service of temporary staff, supporting permanent staff teams at Avante’s care homes situated across Kent, Medway and South East London. Roles include care staff, team leaders, domestic staff and cooks.
The ASB office which was situated at the rear of Parkview care home has now been moved to the front of the home, providing a larger working area for administrative ASB staff.
The relocation has also supported the expansion of Parkview care home to create a further 5 en-suite bedrooms at the home to support the demand for residential dementia care placements in the Bexleyheath area.
Stuart Cross, Managing Director said, ‘We are delighted the new larger offices for staff at ASB have now been completed. Thanks to all staff involved it was a very smooth transition and we are now in a position to complete a further five en-suite bedrooms allowing us to provide more much needed residential care for those living with dementia in the Bexley community.
