intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.

The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.

With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.

In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.

This week we’ll be focusing on Nanette Swan from Dene Grange Care Home in Hexham, who won the Dementia Care Champion of the Year award.

Being crowned Dementia Care Champion could be seen as a very prestigious accolade. Especially as the team at Dene Grange were among the first homes to take up the challenge of completing the Dementia Care Framework.

Nanette explains, “Winning the award was an amazing experience. My team and I had worked extremely hard to embrace and implement the Dementia Care Framework. Although it was difficult we saw the benefits from the outset both for us and the people in our care. I felt in winning the award it was recognition for everyone at Dene Grange.”

Following on from her success, Nanette has revealed that the accolade has raised the profile of the home in the local community, with the home even appearing in the local paper.

“It was lovely, for Dene Grange to be on the map. I love my job and the team here at the home so like I said before this recognition is for everyone. Not just me.”

The home has seen a number of successes come its way, and some deem this is down to Nanette’s drive and the care and compassion of her team.

Nanette added: “Since the start of the framework the reputation and credibility of Dene Grange has significantly increased. Health care professionals have commented on the quality of care delivered in the home as being second to none. In November we received an award from Carehome.co.uk for a review score of 8.4 out of a maximum 10 from reviews made by residents or family/friends of residents. Let’s keep up the good work.”

Information about Four Seasons Care Awards 2016 is available on the awards section of our website.
