Residential, Nursing and Dementia Care
Visitors to Woodleigh Christian Care Home always comment on its warm and happy atmosphere and how the staff are as much friends of our residents as their professional carers. It’s a sentiment we appreciate as it sums up what we are all about – caring for people through developing strong and lasting relationships.
Our community at Woodleigh embraces people from all backgrounds. Our experienced and dedicated staff work hard to provide you and your family with a welcoming and supportive environment, where you feel recognised as an individual, with your own personality and wishes, and our care is always delivered with that in mind.
Coronavirus Update 21st March
We are continually reviewing the government advice daily to ensure we are assessing all risks and taking all appropriate actions. We will work with our families, residents, staff, suppliers and other key stakeholders to minimise the risk.
The Coronavirus situation is changing daily and our foremost concern is to protect our residents and, equally importantly, our staff.
The governments guidance on social distancing is becoming stricter.
We are therefore, from today, introducing the following guidance:
- We are restricting visits to essential visits only – we can provide facetime, skype or voice calls as an alternative.
- We have halted any day care and respite care we normally provide.
- Those essential visits must only be in residents rooms.
- Please do not move around the home or go in the lounges or other social areas.
- Wash and disinfect your hands on entry and exit.
- Do not visit if you have had any symptoms or been in isolation.
All other visits such as entertainers, school groups or other non-essential visits have been postponed until the risk has been averted. The exception being medical professionals, essential maintenance or new residents.
The care home has a detailed contingency plan in place. This includes a plan covering a number of areas, including clear guidance for all staff and arrangements to ensure appropriate staffing levels are maintained, ensuring supplies are in stock including reserves.
When visiting please continue to practice good hygiene. In particular hand-washing on entering and leaving the home along with good respiratory and cough hygiene (this will minimise the risk of cross-transmission of respiratory illness). Cover the nose and mouth with a disposable tissue when sneezing, coughing, wiping and blowing the nose and place all used tissues promptly into a waste bin.
If you have any questions relating to the virus and how it will impact life at our homes, please speak to the Home Manager.
"Your staff are a credit to your company. They are always smiling in what I can only describe as a high pressure job. A special thank you must go to the manager for being fantastic. Many thanks."
Finding a care home that is just right for you can be difficult. At Woodleigh Christian Care Home we offer Residential, Nursing, Dementia, Respite and Day care, so whatever your needs we are sure we will be able to take good care of you. Many of our staff have been with us for many years and they understand the importance of you feeling comfortable with your new surroundings and the care you are receiving. We are committed to making you feel one of the family and delivering the care you want and deserve.
"My mother had not had the care expected at a previous placement. We looked around various other homes. However arriving at Woodleigh brought myself and my daughter to tears. Such a welcoming place. My mother has certainly changed and looks her best in years."
"The staff are very friendly and always have a kind word for Mum, and when she has down days give her support. She is mixing well with other residents and knows she is in the best place possible for her, and it puts our minds at rest that she is settling in well."
RESPONSE TO THE 2019 CQC INSPECTION
On the 4th November CQC released its latest comprehensive report following their most recent inspection. We were delighted, although not surprised, to be rated “Good” in all areas.
Sarah Milnes, the home manager said “We were not surprised at the feedback from the inspectors. The staff have worked so hard to make Woodleigh a safe, thriving and happy place. So, it was wonderful to hear that the inspectors had seen this as well.”
The report included many comments from residents and relatives such as:
“People and relatives spoke positively about staff skills and experience”
“People and relatives spoke positively about the staff team. One person said, “They are marvellous. Nothing is too much trouble for them.”
There are many events such as the weekly community choir and "Friends on Friday" event - both supported by volunteers.
The home`s own chaplain is always available – leading the singing at the community choir, leading services and most importantly supporting the whole family through difficult times.
John Walton, the owner of the WoodleighCare group said: “This recognition is absolutely thrilling. Woodleigh has been at the heart of the Mansfield community for over 30 years – so to receive this recognition is very important and, as the report lists so many outstanding points, is amazing. We are so proud of the whole team as each one of them plays a vital and important role, and of our volunteers who have bundles of energy to.”
The full report is available in the foyer, on our website and on CQC`s web site.
Thank you to everyone involved in this inspection.
