I have an interview on Thurs for a job in a care home. I have worked in care before and greatly enjoyed it even though it was incredibly hard work. I have not worked in a care home during a pandemic however. What questions should I ask them regarding how they are dealing with ensuring safe working during this time. Thanks in advance.

I currently work in a care home on a very part time basis.
Has Covid been in the home or are there any cases currently.
What measures are in place to protect staff and residents.
How many staff on shift at a time
Di you get paid for training both in home and online

What type of residents do you have - early or late dementia for example. Are you expected to do activities with them? What are the shift patterns? Will you be paid breaks or do you have to work the time as extra in your shift - eg if you work 6 hours do you actually have to work 6h30min in order to be paid for the 6hours plus half an hour unpaid break.
Do you have to buy your uniform and pay for your dbs?
Just a few questions!
