You can only provide an excellent person centred care experience by employing a team of highly skilled care professionals.
Team Chawley Grove are true collaborators and caregivers who work in partnership to deliver outstanding, holistic care.
“For me, it’s that focus on creating a home-from-home that makes Chawley Grove special,” says Theresa Whitford, our Home Manager.
“Since we opened the home in April 2019, we’ve been working hard to create a wonderful place for our residents to enjoy living their lives in luxury and comfort, surrounded by a team that truly cares about their wellbeing.”
You won’t find our unique staff structure in other Oxfordshire care homes. Home Manager Theresa is part of a leadership hub that oversees the work with our Homemakers and nurses.
Working alongside the Home Manager is our Clinical Lead, Business Administrator, Community Relations Lead and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach. In their dedicated areas, each person ensures the smooth-running of the home.
We believe that investing in people is vital, so our team are given training throughout their employment. You’ll find that our staff training is of the highest industry standard, in particular for our nurses.
They must complete the Queen's Nursing Institute transition to Care Home Nursing during their induction.
We are the only care home in Oxford and the only UK care group to insist that our nursing staff undertake this training on their arrival to our company.
Person Centred Care
Every resident’s needs are as individual as they are, which is whyour care is person centred. We aim to give each resident as much or as little support as they need to live the life they want to live.
It begins before moving in day, as our team take time and care to discover everything they need to know from new residents and their families.
From there, we can ensure that we fully comprehend what support is required and ensure everything is ready for their arrival.
At Chawley Grove, it’s vital to us that every resident feels they are at home. We know a transition into a care home can be challenging, so we do everything we can to cultivate a relaxing, warm environment.
Residents and their families can rest assured that our Clinical Team is ready if their care needs change, helping them through any short or long-term challenges.
Better yet, as staff, including Homemakers and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches, are always engaging with residents, they can identify changing needs as and when they happen.
We want to be the best care home in Oxfordshire, creating a community of residents who have genuine connections with each other and their neighbours in the local area.
Our person centred approach helps us identify how residents want to spend their time and help them to keep enjoying all the things that make them happy.
Chawley Grove is a place where you are encouraged to be independent, to enjoy your favourite hobbies and pastimes, discover new things and continue building friendships.
Person centred care works because it’s bespoke and genuine, empowering our residents to create a life they enjoy with our support.
The Homemakers of Hamberley
At Hamberley Care Homes, we’ve reimagined the traditional role of a carer, so our residents will experience a holistic care approach like no other.
You won’t find another care home in Oxford offering ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ – care professionals who are a carer, housekeeper and companion all in one person.
Our Homemakers work in collaboration with the clinical team, so they understand the needs of each resident and can provide a continuity of care.
Homemakers are also companions - somebody to share a cup of tea with, who’ll join you for activities or simply sit quietly with you.
Housekeeping is also an essential aspect of the Homemakers’ work. They’ll be there to ensure rooms are tidy and maintained, not just during scheduled cleans but all the time.
Homemakers encourage and support residents in their chosen lifestyles. We want to ensure residents can get out into the local community, no matter what their mobility challenges may be.
Whatever you like to do, Homemakers will go out of their way to facilitate activities and excursions that help you embrace life. After all, it is for living.
