Care Within the Home
One of the reasons our care home is such an enjoyable place to live is due to the impeccable standard of care offered by our team of staff, who constantly prioritise preserving resident’s dignity, encouraging independence and ensuring, above all, their comfort.
Residents who live with Dementia are cared for according to their individual needs and staff within the home are trained to a high standard to look after them.
The home itself has also been adapted to make it safe and secure for Dementia residents so they have freedom to move about the home and can continue to have a full and active life.
Therapeutic and stimulating activities are also tailored to help residents with Dementia, for example, reminiscence sessions based on their life history, sensory boxes and singing for the brain.
The Community Mental Health Team provide advice and support and we also have full support from the local Doctor and District Nurse Team.
All care staff receive extensive training and new members of staff are expected to complete training in Health & Safety, Nutrition/ Food Hygiene, Safeguarding, First Aid, Infection control, Manual Handing and Fire within the first three months of starting.
Our staff all hold a Care Certificate or Health & Social Care Diploma Level 2 or above so are qualified to provide excellent care. Every member of our team is friendly, respectful, approachable and dedicated to delivering Person Centred Care.
All staff receive training in safeguarding and protecting adults, and are subject to all the appropriate checks including a Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) check, which is acquired before a member of staff starts work.
Staff are always available to support 24 hours a day, so everyone can rest easy knowing their loved ones are safe.
Shared Care Plans
Documented care plans allow residents to dictate how they wish to be cared for.
At Bramley House, we use an electronic system called Nourish to help manage the care of our residents. We use it to record real-time, accurate, up-to-date information about our residents’ health and well-being, which is instantly accessible to everyone in the care team.
Residents’ loved ones are also able to access this information through the Nourish Family Portal. The Family Portal was specifically designed to allow family members to get closer to the care provided to their loved ones, allowing them to feel totally secure in the quality of the care we provide.
