Registration Process & DBS checks
In joining MaK Healthcare you will work alongside professional carers who specialise in delivering person centred care to elderly and potentially vulnerable adults, who have chosen to live within the security of a residential care home and where they can enjoy the activities and social interaction that exists within in a safe, comfortable and familiar environment. Our services include temporary assignments, long term contracts and permanent recruitment. We will apply for DBS checks on your behalf. This will include a full work history and checks against The Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults databases. A minimum of 2 professional references covering the most recent 3 years employment are also required together with proof of address.
Uniforms present a consistent and professional image for our staff and our clients. They make it easy for service users and for visitors to immediately identify trained staff and they can also reduce some of the anxiety and confusion that dementia sufferers may feel. In addition they can also contribute to the effective control of infection.
