Bonchester Bridge Care Centre
With sufficient notice, respite breaks can be planned/booked in advance to allow the carer to arrange a break away from their caring role.
We understand that everyone is different and as such care needs are varied. That's why we offer a personal, one to one approach to care plans that provide the right level of support individuals need whilst ensuring they continue to enjoy an independent life. Our warm, friendly approach is a constant reassurance and comfort to residents as they settle into our homely surroundings. This understanding approach helps residents feel safe and secure in the new environment. Our staff are on hand 24 hours a day, they are professionally trained and deliver a level of care and personal service that our residents deserve. We also offer support to residents with dementia. A diverse, varied and interesting activities programme is paramount to the happiness of our residents. We have a dedicated activities co-ordinator. Popular activities include tourist attraction trips, country walks, seaside visits, pampering sessions, pub trips, reminiscence days, bingo and cards. We also have an in-house hairdresser. We ensure that all of our food is freshly prepared in our own kitchen by our own chefs, and where possible, by using local produce. We pride ourselves on the diverse menu available to residents.
Our care plans are designed around the wellbeing and happiness of residents. We believe they should retain their independence, self importance and dignity whilst receiving the care and attention they expect and deserve. We encourage residents, families and friends to make choices on the right care package. Our care plans include best practices, views and wishes of respected professional bodies within the care profession.
