Hillcroft House, Healthcare Homes Group Ltd

When we launched Healthcare Homes in 2005, our main objectives were to create an environment where residents receive the highest standards of care; where dignity is respected; where talents and interests are encouraged; and where life is lived to its fullest potential. We have remained 100% focused to these objectives, and today continue to deliver the highest quality residential and nursing care to all residents who live in any one of our 24 homes across East Anglia. We take great pride in providing tailored care and support to meet the individual needs of each and every person, in a friendly, warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Our nursing and residential homes are located in Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire and include specialist units to care for the elderly, people with dementia or physical disabilities. We also provide care to older people in their own homes from our sixteen homecare locations and a day centre that operates as Manorcourt Care. Our company benefits from the significant knowledge and direction of our founders Richard Clough, Graham Lomer and David Bates, who between them have more than 50 years’ combined experience as professional care industry managers in the healthcare sector.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We support residents who live with dementia by undertaking assessments which ensures that we know the person and can care for them in a person centred way.We encourage talents and interests and ensure life is lived to its fullest potential working together with families and outside professionals

We support residents, physical, mental and spiritual beliefs by involving them in the local community

 

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

One of the challenges is to be able to gain enough information to understand the person we are caring for due to maybe them not having any relatives to support them and their short term memory loss
