Meet The Manager

Heather Nwansi is Registered Manager at Hazeldene House.

Hazeldene House provides high quality affordable accommodation for people who need 24 hour nursing care, particularly those with dementia.  Our Care Suites offer a home for life with Registered Nurses on hand to cater for the changing needs of individual residents.

It is critical that we serve our residents well and we seek to do this using the principles of Servant Leadership. This makes for a fulfilling working environment which in turn benefits our residents and their families and the care professionals we work with.

We believe it is important to understand each resident’s past and present relationships to others and to empower them to talk about their memories and give them a chance to contribute and feel involved.  So we pride ourselves on providing Relationship Centred Care which puts each resident at the heart of a mutually beneficial relationship between their family and friends, our staff and healthcare professionals.

Respite Care Yes

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space
Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Description

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

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.

Residents spouses can also be accommodated,  so that couples can stay together even when one develops the need for on-going care.

Description

Our in-house care is planned and monitored by Registered Nurses at all times.  This enables Hazeldene 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.

Activities Are So Important

Our Social Co-ordinators concentrate on providing stimulating activity for our residents. We offer a full activities programme based on large, small and one to one activities designed specifically to meet the needs of our client group. We are conscious that many people enjoy watching television or just having thinking time and are sensitive to the needs of those who choose not to join in group activity.

If residents choose to stay in their room, wander through the home or visit the administration office, then that is what they can do. With safety aspects in mind the kitchen and laundry are places we discourage visits to but otherwise residents exercise choice and control over their day to day activities.

Over half our residents do not receive regular visits from friends of relatives and some none at all. We therefore strive to specifically involve them in the running of the home. On residents’ birthdays, we mark the day with a card and a gift. A cake is presented at tea time when the staff sing Happy Birthday. We also celebrate other special days such as Valentines Day. At Easter time each resident is presented with a full sized egg and at Christmas specially chosen gifts are given.

We keep in regular contact with relatives throughout the year and welcome contributions and ideas in planning individual social programmes. We have family functions at Christmas and hold an annual summer party. Relatives are encouraged to visit whenever they wish and can telephone regularly for updates.
