Many of our residents are individuals experiencing dementia. The staff at our care home are highly trained and experienced in supporting our residents with cognitive impairment and providing appropriate care and understanding. Residents living with dementia require safe, attentive and effective care with an excellent safeguarding plan. Our involvement with 402k Consultancy has provided invaluable benefits to the design of our safeguarding strategies.
Delivering The Safeguarding Best Practice In Our Worcestershire Care Home
In 2015, we adapted our care to the legal changes regarding the Care Act and changes to the Nursing and Midwifery Council Code. 402k Consultancy are an independent company set up by a registered nurse who retired from the NHS after 36 years of service. Our Worcestershire care home director, Richard White, organised a training course for our nursing staff to help implement the knowledge and practice of these changes in a nursing home setting. This was called the Adult Safeguarding Level One training course and was very popular with our nursing staff. The course drew on key features of safeguarding responsibilities such as recognising different forms of abuse, and managing and referral of abuse or suspected abuse.
With multiple dementia care homes in Worcestershire, we were able to partner with Heritage Manor Care Home to extend the beneficial programme to other care agencies. Both registered nurses of Stanfield Care Home and Heritage Manor Care Home commented that the session not only improved their knowledge of how their responsibilities under the NMC code linked with best safeguarding practices, but also how to spot issues within this. This is one of the most valued skills to develop under such care environments, especially with our person-centred care approach. The advantages of this training course were clearly evident in a Quality Assurance visit by the local Clinical Commissioning Group, which identified the session as evidence of good quality training of Stanfield staff.
The Care Philosophy at Stanfield Nursing Home
With that in mind, the ethos of Stanfield Nursing Home is to recognise the many ways our care can benefit your loved ones in a sensitive and meaningful way. We understand that as a care home, we will be second best to that of the resident’s own home and therefore aim to make the experience of living at our Worcestershire care home the very best it can be. This is achieved through detailed, tailored care that takes into account the individual’s best interests and looking out for what they want above all. This is why we continually update our safeguarding strategy to match the changing nature of our society and the adapting needs of our residents at Stanfield Nursing Home.
