Fairmount nursing home makes outstanding start to 2020
Our popular Fairmount Nursing Home is celebrating achieving a first-rate infection control audit rating score of 99.23% following a rigorous annual inspection.
Carried out byInfection Prevention, Public Health and City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council Department of Health and Wellbeing, Fairmount Nursing Home’s squeaky clean rating was overseen by our new manager, Rebecca Blackburn. A qualified nurse with seven years’ experience in the care industry, Rebecca and her team of 40 highly-skilled professionals care for 32 older people.
There are limited places available at our Fairmount Nursing Home, which provides full-time care, respite care, palliative care, day care and short breaks. Fairmount Nursing Home is part of the wider Fairmount Park retirement development on Nab Wood Drive in Shipley.
Manager, Rebecca, said: “We are proud as punch of our score which reflects the hard work of the whole team.The assessors looked at everything from general management, staff health and training, to the guidelines and policies that Czajka has in place. Examining all of the communal and private rooms, bathrooms and visitor WCs, the inspectors also assessed the laundry and linen management, food hygiene, waste management and the handling and disposal of sharp objects. All of the residential equipment was also put through its paces.
“Our home is part of such a friendly community at Fairmount Park and the ladies and gentlemen that live with us are a delight to care for.”
In addition to Fairmount Nursing Home, Fairmount Park also has a range of purpose built retirement houses alongside one and two bedroom apartments which are all within the leafy four acre estate. With 37 houses and apartments for the over 55s, there are currently just two first floor apartments for sale that are both priced at £180,000.
Alongside the nursing home and retirement homes sits The Clubhouse at Fairmount Park, which is home to a bar, restaurant, private function suite, swimming pool and gym. The nursing home, retirement homes and The Clubhouse are surrounded by immaculately kept private gardens, along with a stunning bowling green.
Konrad Czajka, managing director of Czajka Care Group, said: “We developed Fairmount Park in 1993 alongside The Clubhouse. In any given week our Clubhouse hosts a wide range of events from birthday parties and weddings through to quiz nights, black tie dinners, karaoke, wine tasting sessions and other social gatherings. The majority of our residents use it at least once a week, but most use it much more. It’s also evolved into a private members club and we now have members across all age groups, which helps to keep it fresh and varied.
“We know all of our members very well and many of them like to pop in, sit at the bar and enjoy a pint. We of course also offer a wide selection of non-alcoholic drinks and hot drinks too, so there is something for everyone. Members tell us how much they like The Clubhouse because it’s really convenient and has a fantastic swimming pool, which is always clean and warm. The majority are also attracted to the crown bowling green and they all enjoy the fantastic reasonably priced food on offer. They tell us that the quality of the food and the service received is outstanding, which is music to our ears. We also host Christmas Day lunch and a very popular New Year’s Eve party every year.”
The charming village of Saltaire, which is a designated a World Heritage Site, is less than a mile away from Fairmount Park. Konrad added: “Our residents enjoy outings into Saltaire village and Salts Mill which houses the inspiring David Hockney gallery, a superb selection of shops and plenty of tempting restaurants and cafes.”
Rebecca added: “Fairmount Park really is a beautiful community where people are so supportive, genuine and caring. Everyone is so approachable and our residents and their families are at the heart of everything we do.”
