Meet The Manager

Michaela O'Brien is Home Manager at Ashlands Manor Care Centre.

I started my career in care over 20 years ago as a Care Assistant I knew instantly I wanted to build a career in the care industry and from then I progressed to a Team Leader, Deputy Manager and started my role as a Home Manager 12 years ago. I have experience in managing both nursing and residential homes and always strive to deliver the very best person centred care. I was attracted to New Care Homes as I liked there ethos, vision and values and from the moment I stepped into Ashlands for my interview I felt at home. I am committed to continue to provide person centred, dignified and quality care in my role here and to putting the residents at the forefront of what we do, whilst supporting a fantastic team of staff.

Our Building and Facilities

All New Care homes offer exceptional care services for our residents, their relatives and loved ones. All of our homes are purpose built with our residents in mind. The design of our homes has been developed with architects, designers and clinicians. This truly holistic approach means that residents are supported by design to be as independent as possible.

Each of our new generation care homes offers residential, nursing and dementia care and respite care subject to availability. This means that we are able to offer various levels of care which meets residents needs as they change.

All of our homes have a number of spacious and expertly designed lounges and restaurants. All of our bedrooms are tastefully decorated and have private en-suite bathrooms. On the ground floor, a number of bedrooms also have patio doors. There is also a hairdressing salon & nail bar for residents to use.

In addition, the whole home including our outdoor areas are designed to promote well-being. Outdoor areas are accessible from the ground and first floors for all residents. In addition, we bring the outdoors inside with the creative use of plants across the whole home.

Magic Table:

In line with our care philosophy at Ashlands Manor, we have a “Magic” table or “Tovertafel” in the dementia community. There is significant literature on the positive effects on dementia of play. From our observations, the impact of the “Magic Table” is extremely positive for residents living with dementia. Residents and their relatives alike can play freely on the “Magic Table”. In addition, this is a particularly useful opportunity for involving children to experience positive play with their older relatives. New Care is one of a small group of providers who are leading the way in the UK, by purchasing the “Magic” table as part of our overarching strategy to provide opportunities for our residents living with dementia and their relatives to have fun together.

Activities Are So Important

At New Care Homes we have dedicated activity staff who devise and deliver our activities and well-being programme. We work with our whole staff team so that everyone can participate in supporting our residents to have fun and enjoy life. We offer a range of activities that are based on our resident’s feedback. We have a calendar of events planned throughout the whole year.

We have established some groups in all of our homes, which link to residents, own hobbies and interests. This currently includes a range of subjects from gardening clubs to bridge clubs. We are always keen to start up new groups, to make sure we are supporting all of our residents to have a full and enjoyable life. This can either be re-engaging with a previous hobby or interest, or even learning something quite new. The groups provide opportunities for residents, relatives and other to get together to enjoy a shared passion and have a good time together.

In order to develop this aspect of the service, we have also invested in ‘OOMPH!’ well-being. Oomph! provides training to our entire staff team to deliver a 360 degree approach to wellbeing, demonstrating a positive impact at all times. The training and support packages enable our staff to deliver everyday mental stimulation, regular, fun physical activity and new experiences & connections for our residents. We have enabled all the members of our staff team to provide a set of complementary services to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents.

In addition to our approach to activities, we also offer trips that are tailored to people’s individual needs. This includes a variety of venues including garden centres, museums, shopping malls, the seaside and distilleries etc.

We have a Wellbeing team who offer a wellbeing programme 7 days a week. We also are partnered with OOMPH who support our wider team. Sample programme to follow.
