Carer feedback on our training in care

Home care course

At Bright Care, we know that our care team is at the forefront of everything we do – that is why we invest in our Carers. 

Our recruitment process is robust, meaning that only the very best Carers join our team. Before our successful Care Assistants are matched with a client, they undergo a four-day training in care programme at our Bright Care Training Academy, based in beautiful Perthshire.

Our training in care course is designed so that all our new staff learn about the Bright Care way of delivering exceptional elder care and companionship. Areas covered in person on the training course include personal care, security and confidentiality, first aid awareness, health and safety, moving and handling. We also ask our Carers to complete e-learning modules on dementia awareness, food safety, adult safeguarding and infection prevention and control.

When asked to give feedback on the training in care they attended at our Academy, our Care Assistants said it was


  • Client centric training
  • A caring environment
  • Good fun
  • Mix of practical and theory
  • Small classes
  • Opportunity to ask questions
  • Get to know the team
“When I was looking at job advertisements, the Bright Care one really stood out to me. It really resonated with me in the way it was worded, the ethos of the company, and I felt straightaway that it was somewhere I wanted to work and be a part of. When I consider an elderly person in my own family, the kind of care that Bright Care offers would be exactly what I want for them.”

“Bright Care seems to have a different way of looking at care towards the elderly compared to other companies. It’s all about companionship. This involves getting to know your client, spending time with them, and consequently building up a relationship with them. The way the visits are structured gives you plenty of time to get to know the person you are working with.”


Sarah, newly qualified Care Assistant at Bright Care
