Meet The Manager

Lynne Price is Home Manager at The Priory Care Home.

Lynne has been with us for 8 years as our Home Manager. She has worked in care for more than 30 years, so she has seen it all! As we are small home she is well known by all the residents and their families so she can respond quickly and personally to any changes, queries or concerns

Accommodation at The Priory consists of 18 bedrooms and 5 apartments, all with en-suite facilities. The rooms are fully carpeted and individually decorated and are available fully furnished. Residents may bring with them their own furniture and possessions to add their own personal touch to their surroundings. Each room is fitted with a nurse call system and a smoke detector. Telephone and television points are also available in all rooms should residents wish to use these facilities.

Hospitality is very important at The Priory. We are particularly proud of our home cooking, using fresh seasonal produce wherever possible as well as home-grown vegetables and salads from our own garden, when available. We cater for a range of dietary requirements with an emphasis on traditional cooking for a balanced and nutritious diet. Visitors are always welcome and if residents wish to invite friends or relatives to join them for a meal, we simply ask for prior notice (a small charge is made for guests’ meals). Meals can be taken either in the dining room or in the resident’s own room if preferred.

Refreshments, fresh fruit, biscuits and often home-made cakes, are available throughout the day for residents and guests.

A relaxed, happy and informal atmosphere exists in The Priory. A regular programme of activities and entertainment takes place with the help of visitors and staff. Residents are encouraged to continue or create links with the local community and we help people to maintain their hobbies and interests. Recent events included musical entertainment, slide shows, coffee mornings as well as gentle exercise to music. We also organise seasonal events such as Christmas parties and summer fetes. Residents are always very welcome to invite friends and relatives to any of our entertainment. An excellent mobile library service is provided with normal and large print books, as well as tapes. Holy Communion takes place once a month for those who wish to receive it. Additionally, arrangements can be made for transport to local church services in Chippenham.

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

We use our "new lounge" which has direct access from outside and easy access for residents from inside the home. This way families can still visit - behind screens if regulations require - without having to walk through the home.

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.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Our care home provides a telephone in some of our residents’ rooms.

Description

Staff at The Priory are chosen particularly for their understanding and dedication as well as their caring skills. They have been trained to be attentive yet discrete, to give residents confidence and support. There is always a high staff to resident ratio, including waking night staff, to allow personal time with all of our residents.

Qualified care assistants are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide care in a professional and respectful way. For residents, The Priory will become their home and we would hope to continue to care for them, where possible, even in the final stages of their lives.

We place great emphasis on staff training and development to ensure we offer a quality service to all our residents. This ensures that high standards are maintained in line with the latest initiatives and developments in care practices.
