Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home - Nab Wood
Situated in Nab Wood, Shipley, Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home provides specialist care for young adults with disabilities.
Staveley Birkleas is the specialist nursing home of the North of England for young adults with disabilities. It cares for people from the age of 18 through to 64, who have a variety of specialist needs including amputees, people with brain injuries, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Motor Neuron Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Epilepsy and many other complex conditions.
People with disabilities who are unable to look after themselves in their own homes are able to thrive at Staveley Birkleas, living an independent lifestyle, whilst having round the clock care, in a safe and stimulating environment.
Initially two separate homes, which opened in 1983 and 1986 respectively, we adapted and added a purpose built annexe in 2004 to create a very special environment where people can move easily around the home and its extensive grounds.
With mainly single en-suite rooms that include quality furniture, a nurse call system, television, telephone point and a safe, we always make sure that our residents really feel at home. In fact, we recently converted two rooms for one resident into a small ‘apartment’ where she can have her own en-suite wet room, bedroom and lounge, giving her even more independence.
We also spend time with each resident to find out what they like, what their interests are, and if they have any ideas on how they would like their room to look and then work out how we can bring their vision to life. We go through what each resident is hoping to achieve in their room and talk about every stage of the design process with them so they have full control. We go shopping together for particular items that will help achieve the look they want and our in-house decorators then make it a reality.
We recently opened a new hair salon which is specifically designed to accommodate all our residents and their conditions. and have a dedicated physiotherapy room, with full time physio aide, as well as an adapted kitchen designed to aid rehabilitation.
Our aim at Staveley Birkleas is to help individuals fulfil their potential and we always pride ourselves on putting the needs of our residents first
Outside there is a sunken garden with pergola where residents can relax and enjoy the great outdoors, as well as a variety of seated areas throughout the grounds. We also have a sensory room, high speed WiFi, a Wii-fit, as well as lots of games, books, arts and crafts and other forms of entertainment, so there is always something to entertain residents.
We make it our mission to make sure our residents always reach their developmental goals. We are currently working with one young resident who has Cerebral Palsy to help her achieve an NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care which involves two of our carers spending 14 hours every week with her , helping to research and write up coursework. Ultimately, achieving this qualification will have a hugely positive impact on her life and that’s what it’s all about!
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.
Dear Mr Czajka
I am writing to let you know how impressed I am with two members of your staff at Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home. I recently attended a reviews meeting for my sister, MS, who is a long term resident. The review was handled very professionally by Carolyn with supporting information provided by Kath. Their caring yet professional approach to my sister and her needs was very evident.
Carolyn has provided one to one care for my sister for some time now which has transformed her life as M is able enjoy a wide variety of outings. Carolyn and Kath both provide constant encouragement to help my sister engage with activities with Staveley Birkleas. As a result of the care and attention from these two members of staff in particular, but also from all staff, my sister’s health and wellbeing have improved enormously.
As members of M’s family we are very grateful that she is being cared for in such a supportive and caring environment.
