  • Care Home Staff

Welcome to our page for Care Home staff

Oxfordshire Training Hub is beginning to extend its work into Community Care. On this page you will find information and resources to begin this task and support Care Home staff.

QNI publishes a resource for community nurses caring for people living with Covid-19

Commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement, the resource is called ‘Living with Covid-19 (Long Covid) and Beyond’. It provides information to support nurses working in community, care homes and primary care and also to the wider multi-disciplinary team including clinical knowledge, care responses and skills when caring for people during their recovery and rehabilitation.

New resources on hydration

Here are a series of short animations which aim to help care home staff keep their residents happy, healthy and hydrated.

The six short animations offer handy hints and link to additional resources available through the award-winning Good Hydration! initiative.


More in the series are available from the Oxford AHSN channel on Youtube.


The Care Certificate

Developed following the review of health and social care support workers by Camilla Cavendish (2013), the Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the unregistered workforce in mind, the Care Certificate was developed to provide structured and consistent learning to ensure that care workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, quality care and support.

You can access eLearning for Health’s online programme here.

The Care Certificate e-learning programme supports those workers who are studying elements of the Care Certificate in both health and social care. It has been designed to support the theoretical component of their learning and provide a focus for discussion with the student’s mentor and assessor.
