We are always looking to be innovative in our service. We offer many features which will help you to maintain a high level of fulfilment in your life at each of our homes.
We are unique in our approach to maintaining your independence and quality of life for as long as possible when you live with us.
We have our own dedicated physiotherapist who can make assessments of any physical and physiotherapy needs you might have as required.
Sophie is our physiotherapist. With a background as a specialist neuro-physio, Sohpie is passionate about maintaining and improving the quality of life of our residents. Her role within Bristol Care Homes covers all aspects of our residents’ lives, from activities of daily living to days away from the home. If required, she assesses and advises on the optimal equipment to be used for daily transfers, where along with the carers we are always looking to maintain movement and independence as much as possible. In addition to this, she works with the activities coordinator to encourage their sessions within the homes to adapt to a resident’s particular needs.
We have worked with our local partners Pace Agency to specify and install an innovative solution to decoration of key areas of our homes which creates a dementia friendly environment for our residents. Through consultation with our residents, our staff and other local partners we developed a stimulating solution to the issues of orientation for people living with dementia in our homes, whilst ensuring that the solution still fits with those with different needs. The result is an attractive arrangement of themed art on the walls which delivers excellence in visual appeal, but also wayfinding at the same time.
As you can see from the rest of our information, we are very proud to be early implementers of electronic care planning and electronic medication management systems. These are both state of the art and support improved quality of life and positive outcomes for you.
We believe that living with us should not just be limited to staying in our homes. In addition to our minibus team who offer a wide variety of interesting trips out, we also have cars which have been adapted for wheelchairs which are fully insured and available for your relatives and friends to drive you out when you like.
We provide the car (booked on a first come first serve basis) the insurance and a base amount of fuel for trips you might require, for example your family might wish to take you away for the weekend and this can easily be achieved through the use of this car.
Beautiful, award winning gardens and grounds which create tranquil and inviting surrounding for you, your family and friends to spend time together.
We are committed to best practices in our nursing and residential care. Continuous care planning ensures regularly updated assessment of your needs. Our computerised care planning system ensures that our qualified nursing and care staff always have accurate information, and provides a full audit trail of your care. We discuss your needs with you directly, and with your relatives if you agree. We liaise closely with your doctor.
Our podiatrist and in-house physiotherapist visit the home regularly and optician, dental, and hospital appointments are arranged as required.
We have developed a creative and active community life in each of our homes. Our fully equipped customised minibus offers regular trips out to the attractive local countryside, and to places of interest. Each weekday sees a variety of activities led by our dedicated activities teams, these include:
We are constantly investing in our facilities. Since opening our first home in 1996 we have established a well-earned reputation for our total commitment to deliver the highest quality of care.
