Meet The Manager

Terry Mullan is Care Home Manager at Hawkinge House.

On 28 April 2009, Shepway District Council resolved to grant detailed planning permission for the building of a new care home in 4 acres of what used to be a Battle of Britain airfield. The site sits beside a doctors’ surgery and a new housing development of 3,000 houses.

The building is three storeys and is large enough to accommodate separate units for various levels of both physical frailty and dementia. Accommodation is provided in a range of studio, one and two bed suites with on site 24 hour care, thus ensuring a home for life. Residents  have the choice over whether they wish to rent or buy on a leasehold basis.

The Care Suites provide residents with their own accommodation with front door and generous personal day space for socialising with family and friends. Communal space for socialising and dining has been incorporated and there are separate garden areas for the different groups.

Strong links with the community are being fostered with services such as social events and day care being offered within the scheme.

Our care suites provide residents with much more space than nursing home bedrooms, but with the same level of nursing care and support.  At Hawkinge, some of the care suites are specially for dementia sufferers who would otherwise need to move into a traditional EMI nursing home.

As well as giving residents additional space for personal effects and mementos,  our care suites  differ from traditional nursing home bedrooms 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.

Each suite has an en-suite shower room and benefits from the secure entrance to the building.

All the staff that work in the home are direct-employees

Being direct-employees means continuity of care and facilitates a “family” atmosphere. The home has a comprehensive training programme and a high proportion of its staff have achieved NVQ qualifications.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are a leisurely affair and staff are available to assist residents when required.

We have recognized that many of our residents have their best appetite of the day at breakfast time. For this reason we have introduced cooked breakfast for all residents which has proved very successful in terms of excellent take up and enjoyment and has improved outcome for residents’ nutrition and weight maintenance.

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 reminiscence.

We even had our Hawkinge Howlers appear on TV recently!
