Meet The Manager

Nicholas Kelaher is Care Home Manager at Basingfield Court Residential Care Home.

Rated ‘Good’ in every area in the latest Care Quality Commission report, Basingfield Court is a home where residents are in the driving seat when it comes to things they like to do.

An extract from the report reads: “People told us staff were caring. One person said, "The staff are very caring and kind, they know how I like things done." Another person told us, "I am very happy here, the staff are wonderful. I get on well with them and they chat with me and share a joke. I think they are very caring. The ones that I know well ask about my family and grandchildren. Some are more like family to me." CQC report published 3 May 2019.

Our Building and Facilities

Residents in the care home have supported the team to transform the gardens. We invested in some new tools, lightweight wheelbarrows, wheelchair friendly raised planters and with a little elbow grease, the grounds are now bursting with colour. There’s every flower you can imagine, tomato plants galore and hanging baskets lovingly created by the residents.

Inside the home itself there has been an impressive refurbishment. There is a bistro style coffee lounge where loved ones and residents enjoy spending time together. This room has also been used by a mother and baby group in Hampshire, who come to the care home on a regular basis.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Sanctuary Care we recognise meal times have always been a focus for residents in our homes which is why we invest in fantastic chefs and catering staff who can deliver delicious, nutritious menus and create an enjoyable dining experience for our residents. Some of our residents enjoy getting involved in the preparation and serving of food! You can read more about this in our case studies.

Cooked or continental? Sandwiches or hot food? The choice is yours with residents being involved in creating seasonal nutritional menus from old favourites to trying something new…there’s also always freshly baked cakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Midnight snack? No problem, refreshments are available to residents throughout the day and evening if they get a little peckish.

We encourage meal-times where residents can eat together and socialise in a relaxing environment but understand that residents may wish to enjoy food when they and where choose to have it.

Our trained staff understand the importance of eating well and staying hydrated and supporting residents living with dementia to enjoy food in their environment – making food more visible through coloured crockery and more appealing whether it's pureed, finger foods or moulded.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Activities Are So Important

Residents in the care home, most of whom receive residential care and some who live with dementia, are very much involved in activities. Recently they decided they would love to see a Come Dine with Me-style supper club. With the support of the team this is going to be a regular event. The residents plan the menu and are supported by staff to buy the ingredients to create a dining experience to remember. The first one was a huge success and the residents all dressed to the nines for what felt like a night out in a restaurant.

For those who love to socialise the team organises cheese and wine evenings at Basingfield Court. These are a lovely activity for the residents enjoy. The chef prepares platters of fine cheeses and there are a variety of wines to accompany them.

Children from local Scouts, Beavers, Rainbows and Girl Guides groups in the town regularly pop in for a game of bingo and to treat our residents to musical performances. Youngsters from Basingstoke’s St Mary’s CE Junior School are also regular guests, joining us for everything from World Book Day to choral performances. Our residents have also been invited to the school for afternoon tea.

Basingfield Court has a fantastic relationship with our local Co-op store in Basingstoke, which donates flowers to the home which we use for flower arranging sessions. The store also held a fund-raising event and presented over £400 to the home, which will be well spent on trips for our residents.

An Zumba Gold instructor comes to the home every fortnight. High energy and fun, these classes are specially tailored to our more mature audience and the residents absolutely love them!

As you can see there’s plenty going on at Basingfield Court and we invite you along for a cup of tea to see for yourself.
