Standard of Care
Christine Dewan is the Registered Manager. She leads and manages a highly skilled and dedicated team comprising registered general nurses, mental health trained nurses and carers who have a holistic approach to care. They are actively encouraged to expand and enhance their skills through participation in bespoke training courses and by undertaking relevant NVQs. Staff ratio is 1:5 during the day ensuring all our residents' needs are met quickly and efficiently.
Our medical provision is supplied by a GP at our local surgery. We also have regular visits from community Podiatrists, Dentists and Opticians, and liaise closely with Consultant Psychiatrist and Community Psychiatric Nurses, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists.
The staff are committed to a holistic approach to care. We involve the residents and their families in the assessment and care planning process to ensure the person's history; personal achievements and interests are taken into account. This enables us to devise an appropriate care plan that will meet their needs and enhance their current skills. This plan is evaluated on an ongoing basis and updated monthly or when any changes occur.
