 Care Provision

Pre-admission assessments

All residents are fully assessed by our Home Manager prior to admission to ensure that their needs can be fully met within our home. This assessment is used as the basis for future care planning which is an ongoing process following admission to The Brooklands. Care plans are created by the management team in consultation with the resident, their relatives and other medical professionals to ensure that all care needs are met.

Care Planning

Each resident’s care plan will include a description of their preferred daily routine, their likes and dislikes in relation to food and any special dietary, health or personal needs. It will also address the issues of dignity, privacy and respect and what this means to the resident in terms of daily behaviour and actions. In addition the care plan includes a risk assessment and management plan. Finally it includes details of residents’ social interests and hobbies and how these are met.

Key worker scheme

Every resident is allocated a key worker who will act as their primary point of contact for all care related issues. The aim is to create a rapport between the resident and staff member so that the resident feels secure that all their needs can be met. We see residents as individuals and aim to pursue a person centred approach to care planning and delivery.

External links

In addition the home maintains good relationships with all local healthcare agencies and social services departments which enables us to access any services that may be required by a resident, for example, chiropody, speech therapy or physiotherapy. Residents are encouraged to remain with their existing GP if at all possible as this maintains continuity of care.

Residents are encouraged to establish and maintain links with the local community. For example, if a resident has strong religious beliefs or regularly attends a day centre then we will make every effort to ensure that they are able to continue with this following admission to The Brooklands.
