Brendoncare’s mission is to care for older people with dignity and respect, providing care for life in our care homes, in a way that maximises our residents’ independence, safety and quality of life. What makes us different – our pledge to Care for Life, our innovation, our award-winning food – read on and find out more.
Brendoncare care homes feature a range of different care models – including specialist dementia care – so that residents can continue to live in the setting that they know, even as their needs change. In addition, we promise that no resident will ever have to leave because of financial hardship. If a resident’s monetary situation does change, then our charitable funding can step in and ensure their home really is a home for life.
We offer different home models to preserve every individual’s or couple’s independence and dignity, whilst ensuring they receive the care that they need. We design the setting around the needs of the residents, and have the care that they need come to them. In this way, our residents enjoy maximum quality of life – and receive the care that they need.
Our staff are naturally crucial in delivering the care, attention and friendship that our residents need. We are proud of our comprehensive training programme, and we pledge that we will have the full staff level on every shift so that the level of care we provide is never compromised.
We recognise that every person is unique and individual, and this philosophy underpins our approach to care. Working together with residents and their families, we design programmes of care, daily routine and activity tailored to the health, aspirations and specific needs of the individual.
Within our care homes, we work hard to make all our residents feel as though they are in their own home. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and cherished personal possessions with them, and to arrange their room as they choose so that it really does feel like home.
Meals are a very important part of the day and our aim is for everyone to receive a high standard of nutrition and to really enjoy their meals. The chefs provide a good variety of appetising and well presented home-cooked meals, and special diets and personal preferences can be catered for. All the care homes are pleased to celebrate birthdays and other special events, and family parties can always be arranged.
There is always lots going on in our care home: each home is committed to providing a wide range of activities for residents. Equally, we respect people’s need for privacy and quiet, and residents can always choose how they wish to spend their time. The staff aim to provide an atmosphere in which residents can make decisions for themselves and feel at home, while at the same time receiving personal and nursing care of the highest standard.
