Fairmount Nursing Home - Nab Wood
Situated in Nab Wood, Shipley.
We opened Fairmount Nursing Home in 1989 and extended and refurbished the home as part of the wider Fairmount Park development in 1991. Our home is registered to provide 24 hour nursing care and is fully equipped with all the latest medical equipment and adaptations.
Forming part of Fairmount Park, which is a retirement development of 37 houses and apartments for the over 55s, residents can enjoy the superb, accessible landscaped gardens throughout the year.
In addition they have full use of The Clubhouse at Fairmont Park, which offers a restaurant and bar, swimming pool, jacuzzi, fully equipped gym, steam room and snooker table. There are also regular bowls matches held on our crown bowling green.
Each room is tastefully designed using a range of stylish and co-ordinated furnishings. All rooms have a nurse call system, television and telephone point. When people move to Fairmount Nursing Home we encourage them to bring their own personal belongings to create a real home from home.
There are also two lovely lounges and a dining room overlooking the bowling green. Upstairs is a balcony where people can relax while looking out over the gardens and a communal computer is available for residents to use with WiFi internet access.
We always make mealtimes special, because it’s such an important, social and enjoyable part of our resident’s daily routines. We cater for the requirements of vegetarians, vegans, diabetics and those with religious diets, and regularly ask residents about their favourite meals so we can accommodate them within our menus. Residents who prefer to dine alone can choose to have their meals brought to them in their own room.
With the Gold Standard Framework accreditation in recognition of our continued high standards, we are also accredited as an Investors in People organisation, demonstrating our commitment to developing staff and have an impressive infection control rating.
I would like to thank you on behalf of us all for your care of M over the last two years. Right from before M arrived at Fairmount, the staff we met were kind and helpful. It's so frightening to pass your precious loved ones into someone else's care, and the Fairmount staff are all as kind to the relatives as they are to the residents.
I can truly say that everything during M's stay has been fantastic. The management made every effort to explain things, to resolve minor issues, and to give necessary information. I was never once told that a member of management didn't have time to speak to me.
The nursing staff were excellent, they kept us fully informed and dealt with medical issues promptly and compassionately. The carers were, without exception, kind, patient and warm, and were so very, very kind to M and to us too. The cleaning staff were efficient, all the rooms were sparkling and again the staff kind and friendly. The chef, at the same time as preparing exceptionally high quality food for a large number of people, was always keen to offer anything that a resident might fancy to tempt their appetite. All of the beautiful residents' rooms were truly treated as their homes by all the staff, and the dignity and privacy of my mother was respected from the day she came until she left.
I am so pleased that M's final years were spent in the safe secure and warm environment of Fairmount, she really thrived and was very, very happy and so, therefore, were we. I couldn't have done more for her than you and your colleagues did, and it's been wonderful to meet you all. I know that looking after the elderly is an employment, however, your staff really do care and I would be grateful if you could thank them all for us.
One of the key factors in M's wellbeing was her participation in the wonderful, stimulating, and varied activities provided by Julie, the gentle way she managed to integrate Mollie into these activities was astonishing. I do hope that our gift, in M's memory, to the residents of Fairmount will give them pleasure, I'm sure Julie will have loads of ideas for how to use the tablet with them.
Please pass our compliments to Konrad for a beautiful nursing home and an exceptionally high quality caring team.
With our sincerest thanks
