In our Dementia House, we have a designated Manager and we are able to provide care for up to 18 people.
There are six carers on duty during the day and three carers at night, supported by the Shift Leader. We support people of a varied age range and dementia.
Most of our care staff have achieved, or are working towards an NVQ/QCF in Health and Social Care.
One of our Deputy Managers is an experienced Clinical Lead Nurse who supports the team in providing safe and effective care to our residents. The other Deputy Manager is also an experienced Dementia Manager.
We have a 24-hour nurse call system installed in all our residents’ rooms. Some of the residents have a personal alarm to carry, so they can call for assistance if required.
To support our residents’ health and wellbeing, we have two dedicated Activities Coordinators who organise a variety of activities, community initiatives, as well as trips outside of the Home
Please note that the level of care each person receives will depend on their individual needs. This is continuously monitored and reviewed to ensure each person receives the right level of care. Staffing levels may be adjusted in different areas of the Home to support the level of care required by residents at any particular point in time.
