Our Staff pride themselves on their standard of care. They are visibly rewarded by the relationships that they build with both residents and their families and the compliments that they receive.
We attach great value to having loyal, happy, motivated Staff. We understand the positive impact this has on the well-being of residents and the atmosphere of the home. Staff are continuously encouraged to pursue further qualifications, and we have several in-house “champions” with specialist knowledge in specific areas of care.
OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
The home has a close relationship with the local GP, who visits the home for weekly check ups, and makes house calls when necessary. The home works also closely with local district nurses and social workers. On occasions where where an ambulance has had to be called, we find response times in the area to be very good.
OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH FAMILIES
We understand the importance of involving families, both to achieve the best possible well-being of loved ones and to inspire confidence. Being a small Home, the Manager and Deputy can truly have an open door policy and develop relationships with each family. There are also regular individual care plan meetings and Relative meetings.
