To create at Broomy Hill an environment in which both Residents and staff encounter a sense of community and ownership. That the standards of care and humanness are reflected in the atmosphere and willingness for each to support the other – irrespective of status.
To provide a quality of care underpinned by knowledge and sensory awareness of the Residents’ needs and wants – and to be able to distinguish between the two.
To encourage a climate of openness i.e. discuss issues in an open and frank manner, respecting the dignity and rights of the individual.
To refrain from undermining the rights and feelings of Residents and colleagues thereby creating an environment of friendship, trust and openness.
To make ourselves available to residents, their friends, family, staff and support agencies, dealing with them swiftly, with confidence and dignity.
Nursing those living with Dementia & Mental Illness.
Registered nurses and care assistants, selected for their skills, offer a twenty-four hour service of care to all residents, based on the individual needs of each Resident. An experienced manager oversees the day to day activity of the home, ensuring the care delivered embodies the physical, psychological, social and environmental needs of each resident.
