Keeping Things Personal

The wonderful surroundings at Abbeycrest Nursing Home are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

    Find out more about our Home Manager, Sonia Da Silva

    Sonia is our Home Manager at Abbeycrest Nursing Home, here's a little bit more about the home in her own words:

    "As a registered nurse I began my career with at Abbeycrest in 2012. At Abbeycrest caring for our residents is our main focus they are the reason we are here, we strive to ensure they feel happy and well looked after. When our residents join us, we work with them to maintain the involvement they had in the local community so that they feel connected to their lives outside the home and fulfilled.

    Each of our residents is unique and we treat them as such, creating care plans that suit their individual preferences whilst ensuring safety, comfort and the highest levels of care. Families are involved in our care planning, we share experiences and learn from each other.

    We look after our residents as if they are our own family and build strong relationships, I try to put a smile on their face each day and they give me a smile in return."

Do I need to book a viewing?

You should be able to visit a home at any time – we advise visiting more than once and at different times, so that you can get a clearer understanding of what it is like throughout the day. If you wish to meet the Home Manager during your visit, you might want to consider booking in advance to help ensure they are available when you attend. You can book a viewing using the form above or by calling the home.

Who decides on the menu?

Our Head Chef and the team have many years of cooking experience. They craft their nutritionally balanced menus using seasonal produce, and are guided by the feedback provided to them from our residents during their monthly hospitality meetings and individual care plans.

What qualifications do your care team have?

All members of our care teams are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care.

Caring Homes has been providing care for over 25 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds.

It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.

The ‘Food in my World’ training, also accredited by City and Guilds provides the hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much-improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.

How long can people stay in a care home for?

The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. Our homes offer permanent care to suit your needs or perhaps a respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available at many homes to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
