We go to every effort to make sure we employ a team of highly skilled professionals – all in the name of outstanding person centred care.
Nesbit House give every opportunity to our staff to work in partnership with each other, by providing all sorts of training and growth opportunities. We make sure our team collaborates with internal and external medical professionals to keep our level of care as high as possible.
“The team are working hard on making Nesbit House a special place for our residents, their families and our local community. We would like to take the stigma out of care and make the Home a place that people look forward to coming to, whether it’s a visit or a stay,” says Charles Knowles, Home Manager at Nesbit House.
“Since August 2019 we have been offering fantastic care to our residents and aim to make Nesbit belong to us all, giving free choice of food, activities and interaction. We have only just begun and are looking forward to growing the home into a leading example in health and social care.”
Ours is a unique staffing structure, one that you won’t find anywhere else around Kent.
Alongside Charles our other specialist professionals all help to ensure the home continues to run efficiently. As well as our Home Manager, we have our Clinical Lead, Regional Community Relations Lead, Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach and Business Administrator.
We know that it’s crucial to invest in our staff to maintain our very high level of care. All our team members receive training throughout their time with us.
Person Centred Care
Our person centred care policy stems from one simple fact of life – everyone is different.
We go above and beyond to give each of our residents the precise amount of support as they need – whether that’s constant support or hardly any, we give them the tools they require to live whatever life they choose to live.
Moving-in day can be stressful for everyone, so our team make sure to be prepared in advance for everything. We take time and care to learn everything we need to know from new residents and their families.
With the information provided, we make sure that we know exactly what kind of support the new resident requires, and have everything ready for their arrival at Nesbit House.
The transition into care can be a challenge, and with that in mind, we do everything we can to help residents feel like they are at home. Nesbit House has become a peaceful, welcoming environment for anyone and everyone to enjoy.
Our Clinical Team are on-call at all times to help residents as their care needs change, and we can adapt our approach as residents go through any short or long-term concerns.
Furthermore, our Homemakers and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches are constantly engaging with residents, asking if there is anything they can do to improve their experience. This means we can identify changing needs whenever they might happen.
We’re not your standard care home. We strive to create a community in the home, where residents can build authentic and honest connections with one another and their neighbours in the wider local community.
Nesbit House is a supportive place where residents are given the tools they need to be independent. We want you to keep your existing hobbies and create new ones too. That’s why our person centred approach works so well – we pre-emptively identify how residents might choose to spend their time, and we help by ensuring their continued pleasure in all of the things that make them happy.
Our luxury care home helps residents to discover new hobbies, foods and friendships, as well as maintain old ones.
Our bespoke, sincere model of care works so well at Nesbit House because it is truly person centred. We empower residents to live whatever life they want.
The Homemakers of Hamberley
When Hamberley Care Homes first began, we noticed how stagnant the care industry had become. Most care homes provided almost exactly the same service, and we wanted to be different.
We wanted to pioneer a new model of care, allowing our residents to experience a completely holistic approach to their care. That’s where the Homemakers come in.
You’ll struggle to find another care home in Sevenoaks that offers something like ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ – these care professionals are carers, housekeepers, and companions to our residents, all at the same time.
Homemakers work alongside our Clinical Leads and nurses so they can appreciate the requirements of each of our residents and help deliver consistent, meaningful care.
As they’re also companions, our Homemakers are people residents can play games with, go out to lunch with, or just sit quietly and share a cup of tea with.
When it comes to maintaining our luxury standard of home, our Homemakers are on it – they’ll be on call for any housekeeping, making sure that resident’s rooms are kept clean and tidy.
Our Homemakers do their best to support residents in any way they can. We do our best to ensure residents are able to get out into the local area and get involved in the community, whatever mobility issues they might have.
We facilitate day-trips, activities and events that help residents embrace their life. Whatever you enjoy doing, we want to help you do it.
