Care Philosophy at Stanfield Nursing Home
We follow a person-centred care philosophy at our nursing home.
With that in mind, the ethos of Stanfield Nursing Home is that we recognise that we are second best compared to staying in one’s own home.
Our home’s basic care philosophy links to Bradford University. As a result, it follows the work of Professor Tom Kitwood. He took the theory of Carl Rogers, of working with people who are in distress in a person-centred way, before moving it into healthcare. One element of Professor Kitwood’s work is the concept of personhood.
Put simply, we consider ourselves privileged to support them at this stage in their life.
Continuity of Care
We recognise that admission to a nursing home can be a stressful experience for the individual and their loved ones. We understand this and will aim to make the process as stress-free as possible. By delivering continuity of care, we help to ease this stress and improve the well being of our residents.
For example, if it is the resident’s wish, we try to arrange wherever possible for them to continue to use their GP of choice.
As part of our care philosophy, where it is possible to do so, we will arrange to integrate health services that were used before. This will maintain continuity of care for our Worcester care home residents.
