Meet the Staff

Thorpe House believes in ensuring quality of care by providing high staffing ratios. There is always a minimum of one Registered Mental Nurse (RMN) on duty in the day but common practice is to have two RMN's on duty.

The Registered Mental Nurse is supported by Nursing Assistants of various skill levels and we have a mix of male and female RMN's and Nursing Assistants. On most days, there is also a House Supervisor and/or House Assistant who support the nursing care team in meeting the needs of the service users. Night shifts are staffed by three wakeful staff members, at least one of which is a Registered Mental Nurse.

Thorpe House also employs one full time and one part time occupational therapist (OT) as part of the team. The OTs work collaboratively with individuals, enabling them to explore, achieve and maintain balance and promote as much independence as possible in their activities of daily living. This includes areas such as personal care, domestic, leisure and productive activities and occupations.

There is always an on call manager to give advice and support. Thorpe House employs domestic staff, a cook and kitchen assistants.

All our staff are provided with a comprehensive induction and on-going training.
