Eversley offers a self-contained, comfortable retreat set amongst beautifully maintained gardens where residents can breathe in the fresh seaside air. The two comfortable lounges have an abundance of chairs and large flat-screen televisions ensuring everyone can enjoy the latest programmes.

We are a small, passionate team with four highly experienced nurses who love their job. Eversley offers high quality personal care and modern care technology to aid a dignified and more comfortable life. We have found many of our clients actually improve in health or extend their life expectancy during their stay in the home.

 

In March 2013, Eversley Nursing Home achieved Quality Hallmark Award-Gold Standard Framework Care Home Accreditation for the high quality of care provided for people in the final years of life.

The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a framework to enable a ‘gold standard of care’ for all people nearing the end of life.

“It’s about living well until you die.”

The GSF delivers quality improvement through training, leading to quality assurance with its full accreditation process plus quality recognition for the staff of care homes involved.

The GSF has 3 aims:

  • To improve the quality of care provided for all residents
  • To improve collaboration with GP’s, primary care teams and specialists
  • To reduce inappropriate hospital admissions in the final stage of life, enabling more to die with dignity in the home, if that is their wish

Eversley works within the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) which has a person centred approach considering dignity of care, spirituality and other means to improve the quality of care.

For more information on the Gold Standard Framework, look up: www.goldstandardsframework.org.uk

In February 2014 Eversley Nursing Home was also the winner of the Norfolk Care awards category: ‘Effective Coordination of End of Life Care’.

We are also members of the National Care Association for 2015 – 2016.

“Feeling Mum would lose her identity was my biggest concern; she always valued her independence. But the staff are genuinely caring people who respected her dignity; she wasn’t just ‘another grey haired old lady’. They cared for her as much as we would have done.”

Being diagnosed with dementia can be a very difficult and confusing time for the individual and their loved ones, and it is only natural to feel anxious about what life in the future will be like. At Eversley we strongly believe that the transition into our care should be smooth and carefully assessed in order to minimise upset to all concerned.

Whether it’s a friendly face, a warm smile or taking time to listen, making a positive difference to someone’s day is important to us.

Residents who are experiencing memory loss benefit from our enlightened approach to dementia care, which stimulates, supports and comforts in a safe and homely environment. We are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for these residents, and we achieve this through our ‘Wings’ (Welcome, Individuality, Nurturing, Guidance, Sensitivity) philosophy of care. This award-winning approach is nationally recognized and our bespoke learning programme is designed to ensure that the person with a dementia is at the heart of everything we do.

We place great importance on the lives our residents have led and spend time with them and their family members to find out about their tastes, history, hobbies and interests. Family and friends are significant partners to us and we welcome feedback and suggestions at all times. The information shared helps us to create individual care plans for each individual, which are paramount in providing the best care, and also helps us get to know them well. Residents are supported to achieve their aims by taking part in meetings, surveys and one-to-ones where possible.

We have a spiritual and calm environment here at Eversley, and we have links with therapists, GPs, the church, chiropodists, and even have our own Caprice bath with three spa options.

Hydro Spa option gives the therapeutic effect of bathing with relaxing underwater muscle massage. The bubbling bath has air heaters, which maintain constant temperatures and keep the patient warm. Diffusers located along the floor of the bath mean that the massage can be controlled for preference.

Aroma Spa option uses the beneficial effects of essential oils for an aromatic bathing experience, creating the feeling of serenity and relaxation.

Colour Spa option has large integrated lights, which illuminate and colour the water. Coloured lights have positive psychological and physiological effects and can help maintain and restore health.

The spa range is designed to benefit those with disabilities, mental and behavioural disorders, as well as those who are visually, hearing and/or speech impaired.

 

First and foremost, we welcome and encourage our residents to make their rooms here as homely and personal as possible, by furnishing them with their own belongings to create a space they feel safe and happy in. Paintings, a favourite ornament and plenty of family photographs can all be of comfort and really calm unsettled feelings.

The staff here all have a kind and caring nature, they understand the meaning of real person-centre care and are skilled in engaging residents in meaningful activities where appropriate. The home is continually committed to specialist training, which enables staff to help individuals express their needs and maintain a high level of independence, self-worth and well-being.

Residents can rise whenever they like at the home and have a choice between hot and cold breakfasts. They are welcome to have breakfast in bed, but many enjoy the friendly communal areas. Staff often sit and eat with the residents and don’t wear uniforms or badges, which adds to the relaxed, homely feel of mealtimes. Families and friends are welcomed at all times of the day and can eat with their loved ones either in their room or in other areas.

The enthusiastic, caring staff are always on hand to be with residents throughout the day, and are compassionate about helping individuals to do what they enjoy. They are encouraged to be impulsive, to swap stories, to laugh and cry with the residents, whilst residents are encouraged to follow their own interests and make their own decisions.

Hot drinks, tea, coffee and snacks are served throughout the day.

For lunch and supper there is a choice of mains and desserts, and we invite the able residents to help set the tables, which many enjoy doing. Some residents also help out around the home with other chores.

Mealtimes are a sociable time and staff are skilled at getting even the quietest residents to feel involved. After supper, some residents opt to go to bed early or retire to their rooms, while others stay up until later, relaxing in their choice of communal area. There are hot and cold drinks, alcohol available to those that want it, and NO set bed time, as this is residents’ home.

Each Kingsley care home is unique, but we all have a set of highly respected and award-winning features embedded within the culture. Our daily emphasis is on the care that our residents need, whether that be physical, emotional, spiritual or mental health.

 

We encourage all our residents to live as healthily as possible, to aid long and pleasant lives. We encourage appropriate exercise, keeping minds active and eating nutritious food and our healthy, balanced meals are made from scratch using only the best, locally sourced ingredients. We understand that people’s tastes and habits are different, and we ensure that the varied menu includes a great selection of nutritious delights and individuals’ favourites.

The care team at Eversley are specifically selected to meet the criteria of a person-centred worker, and undergo a continuous programme of training, on both practical and theoretical levels. Most of our training is facilitated by our own training arm, Kingsley Academy.

We pride ourselves on employing individuals who can demonstrate:

  • Nurturing – Being able to provide comfort, security and a sense of belonging
  • Togetherness – Being a friend to individuals on an equal basis, eliminating feelings of alienation and loneliness
  • Spontaneity – Being able to create opportunities which will engage individuals in a meaningful way
  • Feeling – Being able to be emotionally warm, offering closeness to each individual

The following phrase relates well to how our staff look after clients:

“...If you can demonstrate to me that my illness does not degrade my worth as a person, that it is not beneath your dignity to care for me, you affirm me in a powerful manner.” – Kay Toombs

The staff at Eversley are here because they love the work they do, many staff have been working in the home for years and still hold the same amount of passion to care as they did on their very first day.
