Life at Holybourne Day Centre

A carer and a resident

I went to the Christmas party held for the service users. My dad attends this centre three days a week. The staff cannot do enough to ensure dad has a wonderful day. When he gets home he is like a different person full of life (but tired). The staff go out of their way to ensure my dad is well cared for, he has dementia, when at home he does not do much and when I saw him interacting with the staff, he was dancing and singing like I have never seen before, it melted my heart and made me cry. God bless these staff.

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.

Holybourne-Day-Centre-London-Kings-and-Queens-Day-1

13 Jul 2016

It was a right royal knees up in London on Saturday 2nd July 2016 as service users from Holybourne Day Centre in Roehampton attended a Kings and Queens event organised by the Church and Regenerate RISE.

Christine Smith, Day Centre Manager, explained: “The event is specifically catered for older people in the local borough. Everyone at Holybourne went to the event, and had a fantastic time. We all enjoyed lunch before the musical entertainment got us up on our feet dancing the afternoon away.

“The event focused on the Queen’s 90th birthday, and it was nice for everyone to have a good old knees up to celebrate Her Majesty’s special day.”

Mo Smith, from Regenerate RISE said: “It’s a free banquet for older people in Roehampton, and SW15, to say thank you for all your contributions to the community throughout the years.

“People wanted to treat them like kings and queens, so we gave it that name.”

Christine Smith added: “This is just one of the things we do to provide special experiences for people who use our care. Just because you need to take advantage of our services doesn’t mean we just leave you to your own devices. We like to interact with our users, find out their likes and dislikes and cater wholeheartedly to their needs.”

Holybourne-trip-to-Feltham-Farm-1

7 Jul 2016

On Friday 24th June, clients from Holybourne Day Centre in London went on a trip to Feltham Farm, to see what it would be like to spend the day as a farmer.

Christine Smith, Day Centre Manager, said: “The clients had a fantastic day out. Tey got to meet a wide variety of animals, and even fed some of them. It’s safe to say you can understand why pigs are classed as greedy. The one at Feltham wouldn’t stop eating!

“After they’d fed the animals, the clients settled down to their own picnic, before getting to grips with some domesticated and exotic animals. The only thing that seemed to get the bad reception was the snake, with some clients and most of the team trying to avoid her like the plague. Poor snake.”
