If you’re looking for a home that provides excellent care, support and comfort, with a busy activities schedule in which you’re free to choose whether to participate, then Hadleigh Hall nursing home is ideal.
Providing first class care is at the heart of everything we do at Hadleigh Hall nursing home and we are passionate in our belief that residents should have the best possible quality of life.
Our staff treat residents as they were their own family and at all times respect the fact they are individuals with their own needs and preferences.
A diagnosis of dementia brings with it a very difficult and confusing time for the individual and their loved ones, and it is only natural to feel anxious about moving somewhere new. At Hadleigh Hall nursing home we ensure that the transition into our care is carefully assessed and managed in order to minimise upset to all concerned.
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. Whether it’s a friendly face, a warm smile or taking time to listen, making a positive difference to someone’s day is what makes our world go round.
Staying active has a beneficial effect on both the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents.
The value we attach to this aspect of care is shown by the fact that our whole team is involved in actively engaging and stimulating our residents, not just our dedicated activities coordinator. We tempt people with a varied programme of activities and events, including visits by entertainers.
Most importantly, we understand that everyone has different passions, hobbies and interests; our staff make every effort to really get to know our residents and their families so they know exactly what activities are dear to them - and then support them to carry on doing what they love.
We place great importance on the lives our residents have led before coming to us. We spend time with them and family members to find out about their tastes, history, hobbies and interests. We see family and friends as our partners in caring for the individual and we welcome feedback and suggestions at all times. The information shared helps us to create individual care plans that are crucial in providing the best care and help us get to know the individual. Residents are helped to achieve their aims by taking part in meetings, surveys and one-to-ones.
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.
We welcome and encourage our residents to make their rooms as homely and personalised as possible. By furnishing the room with their own belongings they create a space in which they can feel safe and happy. Paintings, a favourite ornament and plenty of family photographs can all be of comfort and will help if a resident feels unsettled.
We encourage all our residents to live as healthily as possible, to help them have 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 selection of nutritious delights and individuals’ favourites.
Each Kingsley care home is unique but 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 is physical, emotional or spiritual.
“Thank you for your kindness and loving care given to our mum. Life has been hard for her but during her stay with you, no longer is she lonely.” Kingsley resident’s relative.
