Meet The Manager

Mojibola Olusesan is Manager at Puddingstone Grange.

Puddingstone Grange care home is registered to offer residential care for male and female service users, who are elderly and frail, have a dementia related condition and nursing care needs.

A mental health unit was been opened within the home in August 2015 to provide care and support for those living with mental health conditions.

A community district nurse service is available for the residential units.

Community psychiatric support is provided when necessary, through a resident's general practitioner services.

The mental health unit receives support from Oxleas Health Service, 24 hours a day in addition to regular reviews of those residents from the community psychiatric team.

At the heart of Avante Care and Support's work is a philosophy of care where staff encourage social interaction, engagement and the eradication of loneliness and boredom.

Puddingstone Grange ensures its care and support helps to develop interests and hobbies within the care home and provide many opportunities to meet and make new friends.

The design promotes the use of the external space and this will be achieved by having safe, level access to the garden area at the rear, which has a meandering pathway, raised planters, seating areas and water feature.garden area at the rear, which has a meandering pathway, raised planters, seating areas and water feature.

Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

In December 2020 Avante Care & Support proudly launched their new visitor cabins across all 10 of their care homes across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich, so that residents can meet safely with family members despite the coronavirus outbreak. This has meant families are able to keep in contact with loved ones until actual physical contact is possible once again. 

Fitted out with comfortable chairs and decorated with pictures, the cabins will support families to visit loved ones in a safe and welcoming environment. The cabins have separate entrances for the resident and visitor and all furniture and the inside of the structure is thoroughly cleaned after each visit.

When the new visitor cabins opened in December families were keen to make use of the new visiting facility and immediately booked visiting times to see their loved ones. The cabins have been warmly welcomed by everyone and staff have been inundated with positive messages and feedback about the new visiting facilities.

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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our catering team is on hand every day to ensure that the nutritional requirements of all our residents are met, with all special diets catered for. Our chefs come and meet all our residents to discuss meal choices, likes and dislikes.

Sharing meal times with others can provide structure to the day and increase the enjoyment of food. The impact of good nutrition on the health of our brains cannot be dismissed; our brains need nutrients to work and remain healthy.  Eating well is vital to maintain the health, independence and wellbeing of people with dementia

The way food is presented and served, the surroundings and the company in which it is eaten all add to the satisfaction and enjoyment of eating a meal. This is equally important for a person with dementia: a good mealtime experience can have a positive impact on their health and sense of wellbeing.

Activities Are So Important

Our Philosophy of Care is The Eden Alternative which is based on the core belief that ageing should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline.  In a culture that typically views aging as a period of decline, the Eden Alternative philosophy asserts that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow. The Eden Alternative seeks to cure loneliness, not with medication, but by providing residents with companionship and surrounding them with life

Studies show that implementation of the Eden Alternative is a powerful tool for improving quality of life and quality of care for those living in care homes. Also, homes that have adopted Eden as an organisational-wide philosophy have found that there is improved staff satisfaction and retention and significant decreases in use of medication.
