A guide to our services
Day Care Services are intended for those who have been assessed as being frail or at risk and prefer to continue living at home but need some support during the day. The service enables the individual to participate in a range of activities as well as receiving personal care, tasks including bathing, hairdressing, chiropody.
Dementia is a term used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by certain conditions or diseases. There are many different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Dementia is a progressive illness, but how people experience dementia varies with each individual. Places are offered following an individual assessment, to ensure we can meet each person's specific needs, and that the environment is suitable for them. Our staff are fully trained in dementia care and pride themselves on making everyone feel comfortable and valued, by always treating residents with respect, helping them make choices, and taking time to listen.
Nursing Homes offer accommodation, personal care, support, meals and expert nursing care 24 hours a day from qualified registered nurses for people with a wide range of conditions. Anyone who needs personal support and accommodation as well as expert specialised nursing care, can access this at our Beanlands, Currergate, Fairmount and Staveley BirkleasNursing Homes, which all have the very best dedicated facilities, mobility aids and specialist equipment.
Palliative care focuses on the relief of pain and symptom control for anyone with a serious illness or nearing the end of their life. The overall aim is to improve quality of life in comfortable surroundings whilst always maintaining dignity, as well as providing a support system to the resident and those close to them.
We provide palliative and end of life care at Beanlands Nursing Home, which has achieved the Gold Standard Framework (GSF) accreditation. This is awarded to care homes that can evidence the highest standard of care for all people nearing the end of their lives. It means we listen to what people want and support them and their families in making choices and decisions about their care when nearing the end of their life. The GSF is sponsored by Age UK and endorsed by the English Community Care Association, Registered Nursing Home Association, National Care Association and National Care Forum.
We also work together with other professionals to ensure people can stay at Beanlands and be looked after by staff they know and are familiar with, who will continue to give them the care they want and deserve, at the end of their life. Click HERE for more details on Beanlands.
Rehabilitation and Intermediate Care
Rehabilitation and intermediate care services bridge the gap between hospital and home. The focus is on enabling people to recover from hospital treatment, maximise independence and build confidence. These services help prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and ensure that people still receive the care and support they need after a hospital stay, in the comfort of a care home setting.
Our home is fully equipped with specialist facilities and equipment to help us care for people with varying conditions and needs.
Residential Care Homes
All our residential Care Homes offer accommodation, personal care, support, and meals to people when it has become too much for them to manage at home. Short-breaks, respite periods and longer-term options are all available at our Brookfield Care Home, which enjoys a quiet spot in a sought-after residential area in Nab Wood, Shipley. We care for up to 40 older people at Brookfield, to find out more click HERE.
Respite Care and Short Breaks
Caring for a dependent is often very rewarding, but it can also be challenging, which is why we offer short-breaks and respite care for adults of all ages at all five of our homes. A change of scenery and a break of routine can be very beneficial to everyone concerned.
Young Adults (18-65) with Physical Disabilities
Nursing homes registered to care for people with physical disabilities provide specialist nursing care to people who are unable to live in their own homes. The term 'young' refers to any person from the age of 18 years upwards. Our Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home provides adaptations, facilities and equipment to enable young people to maintain as much independence as possible. It also has specially trained staff, including physio aides, to cater for a wide range of disabilities and needs.
