Resident-focused nursing care at Gittisham

nursing-care

 

Our nursing home is led by our experienced manager Carol Dight and her team of qualified staff who have many years of experience between them.

Together, they provide dedicated levels of nursing support that provide comfort and support for residents and peace of mind for relatives.

The nursing home is set within the tranquil, rural surroundings of Gittisham Hill Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the outskirts of Honiton.

Many of the nursing rooms look out onto the landscaped grounds and wider woodland setting.

Fully furnished bedrooms

Every bedroom is comfortably furnished and residents are encouraged to bring possessions to personalise the space and make it very much a ‘home from home’.

There are spacious communal lounges and social areas for activities, in addition to the grounds which provide the perfect backdrop for a gentle assisted walk or guided trip in the wheelchair, where appropriate.

A bespoke and personalised assessment

Bespoke care plans are produced for every resident, in association with care professionals and family where appropriate, and reviewed regularly and as needs change.

There is an emphasis on retaining independence where possible but within a gentle and supportive environment that places the dignity of all residents at the core of everything.

What to expect from our staff

Our friendly staff team have a great sense of humour and dedicate their working day to making life as pleasant and enjoyable as possible for every resident in their care.

They enjoy good working relationships with local GPs, district nurses and professionals who come into the home.

Staff work on 24-hour rotas to provide round the clock care and support.

As in all our homes, a team of support staff provides domestic services including cleaning and personal laundry. Nutritionally-balanced meals are cooked by our own care home catering teams, headed by our chef.
