Meet The Manager

Lindsey Robinson is Care Home Manager at Hawkhurst House.

Hawkhurst House is a recently built housing scheme for older people with nursing needs.  Residents live in care suites which incorporate social space, a dining area and a kitchenette, while they can also spend time with other residents in the communal areas.

The scheme accommodates both physically frail older people and also older people with dementia type illnesses, with each group living in separate areas within the building. Full 24 hour nursing care is available for all residents, so that most residents can have a home for life within the scheme. Residents’ spouses can also be accommodated, so that couples can stay together even when one develops the need for on-going care.

Hawkhurst House focuses on providing relationship-centred care and so a high priority is given to fostering and nurturing relationships between residents, their family and friends and the healthcare professionals who work in and visit the home.

Description

Our care suites:

Our care suites provide residents with much more space than nursing home bedrooms, but with the same level of nursing care and support.

As well as giving residents additional space for personal effects and mementos, our care suites differ from traditional nursing homes in three important ways:

    1. Social space with comfortable seats so that residents’ families and friends can spend good quality time together in privacy and comfort.
    2. Dining space so that residents can enjoy their meals in their own room, if they wish.
    3. A kitchenette so that residents and their guests can prepare drinks and snacks.

There is a choice of studio or one bedroom suites, all with en-suite shower rooms.  They all benefit from the secure entrance to the building.

Description

Our in-house care is planned and monitored by Registered Nurses at all times.  This enables Hawkhurst House to be a “home for life” for most residents.

The philosophy behind our nursing care is that residents should be able to live in the home with dignity and have staff available to support them to live as full and active a life as possible.  To achieve this, our Registered Nurses endeavour to:

  • Involve residents, carers and their families in planning each resident’s care.
  • Monitor each resident’s physical well being as necessary.
  • Provide hands-on nursing care in-house.
  • Support residents in doing things for themselves and maximising their independence, including keeping contact with the outside community.
  • Plan a choice of tasty and nutritious food.
  • Take into account the needs and wishes of residents, and plan a variety of leisure and social activities.
  • Respect residents’ modesty and make sure that they look respectable, while recognising residents’ choice about what they wear.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Hawkhurst House provides traditional home cooked food using seasonal produce wherever possible. The menus are planned with input from the residents and their relatives and a choice of meals is always available. Special diets such as for diabetics are catered for.

Meals can be taken in the dining room or a resident can opt to have their meal on a tray in their own room. Mealtimes are a relaxed and leisurely affair to ensure residents gain full enjoyment from their food. Where residents have difficulty in feeding themselves sensitive assistance is offered by our carers who have all received training in food hygiene.

Our cook liaises with our activities co-ordinator to plan celebratory meals when the food is appropriately themed and the tables dressed for the occasion. These celebrations are much appreciated by the residents.

Activities Are So Important

The home has three Social Co-ordinators who co-ordinate an active programme of crafts, games and hobbies, as well as regular events, social activities and excursions.  Group activities are more popular in the main lounge to include weekly musical entertainment and a craft group.  Some recent activities include a cooking session, a quiz and an exercise group. Outside entertainers visit on a regular basis. An annual visit to a farm to see the new born lambs is always very popular.

Residents’ views are sought on what type of entertainment and outings they wish to have available and the activities programme is built on their preferences. Some residents prefer to spend time in their own room, it is their choice.

In the dementia unit, a specific programme of activities and experiences is offered with one to one attention for example reading, talking, manicure and massage.

Our Social Co-ordinators compile residents’ “Life Stories” by obtaining information from family, long standing friends, old work colleagues, etc. and assembling it into portfolios.  These help to bring back old memories and form the basis of discussions to aid reminiscences.
