Anunay Jha is an owner and the Director of Two Rivers. He was a Senior Civil Servant delivering public services and providing legal advice in government for a number of years and is a lawyer by profession.
Together Anunay and Gyan have the skills to recruit the right staff, create the right culture, handle complex matters and to provide the highest quality of care. Their philosophy is to put the client's welfare above all other considerations and to keep the group small enough to manage it personally.
Our staff are all women to ensure our clients feel comfortable at home. They are all CRB vetted, have to demonstrated a clear committment and passion for care. They are fully trained up to CQC standards.
Staff also have specialist experience in dealing with:
The 'Recovery Model' - helping clients to become more independent
Culturally appropriate care for clients from Asian backgrounds - including food, environment, daily activities, festivals, families, care plans, Asian language speakers (Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Gujarati, Bangla)
Complex needs, epilepsy, wheelchair users, challenging behaviour, dual diagnosis, self-harm, dysphagia, schizophrenia
Over half our staff are from Asian backgrounds and speak Asian languages (Gujarati, Punjabi, Bengali, Hindi, Urdu), but we also believe that it would be wrong to have only Asian staff as clients need to be able to build relationships across cultural boundaries.
