Our team consists of ENA's, carers, cleaners, a cook and garden worker.  Relations based obligations lacks dignity.  We want all team members to share our passion to work with the elderly and not to see work as a necessary evil.  We wish them never to underestimate the challenges they are facing with care-giving, but also never to doubt in their ability to deal with the challenges.  We believe that family is not the most important thing, we believe it is everything.  Out team must become a second family for the residents especially those whose loved ones are not close.

Training is important and therefore plays a major role in our day-to-day business activities.  We have a very specific training programme where we do not only train employees on processes, techniques and methods as practised by Elleo, but we also train them on our ethos, principles and values.  We have a very specific quality improvement programme where team members also make suggestions on how to improve our work.
