Things to consider in a care home
The process of finding a nursing home that matches the requirements and expectations of you and your loved one can be a long and difficult one. There are a multitude of aspects to consider in terms of quality of care, the home, staff, and food are just a few of them. For such a complex affair, one of the main things to begin with is sitting down with your loved one and talk through what is most important to them. This will help you narrow the focus of your ‘care home near me’ Google search to a shortlist of potential care homes.
Choosing Stanfield Nursing Home
One of the most guiding factors when searching for a care home is the quality of care provided at an affordable price. It is important to read through CQC inspection reports to get a detailed, professional analysis of the operations within that home. You may discover that the style of care is not focused in the way your loved one requires, or that the report findings are not up to your standards.
You can read through Stanfield’s most recent CQC report, in which we were rated ‘Outstanding’ overall. https://www.stanfieldnursing.co.uk/about-reports/
We also have a 9.9 rating on carehome.co.uk, read our glowing reviews here.
Another essential part of looking for a care home for your loved one is actually visiting the home. Stanfield Nursing Home quickly becomes a resident's home from home. We therefore pride ourselves on having no formal visiting hours. This is not only convenient for the resident but also for family and friends, who can pop in for a few minutes on their way to and from work or engage in our daily activities such as musical aerobics.
Other things to consider would be specific services and activities they can provide that cater to your loved one with the ethos of person-centred care. Stanfield Nursing Home offers nursing care, rest of life care, and specialist dementia care - all with individualised plans for every resident. To support them, we need to make sure the decisions about their care and treatment are appropriate and are in their best interest. This is aided with Diversional Therapy, a strategy to help integrate into daily activities in a way that suits them. Click here to learn more.
