Life at Old Vicarage Care Home

A carer and a resident

I would recommend the home. The residents are treated as family and visitors are also warmly welcomed.

Gill Clark, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Old Vicarage Care Home

All the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is very good (mum enjoys all the meals). There are activities nearly every afternoon which they all enjoy. The rooms are cleaned daily.

FSHC-CNJ-LaingBuisson-Award-Success-Nov-2017

16 Nov 2017

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.

The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.

Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.

Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.

Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.

Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.

Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.

While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”

If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

Old-Vicarage-Care-Home-Worksop-DCF-Accreditation-Oct-2017

15 Nov 2017

Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.

The care team at Old Vicarage Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.

The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.

The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted a party on Thursday 26th October 2017 for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals, the local mayor and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them.

Jacky Reed, Managing Director for England East said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”

In addition to the support and training, there are three additional components to the Dementia Care Framework – personal care reviews, Resident and Family Charters.

At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.

Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.

The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments.

The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.

The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.

Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.

Old-Vicarage-Care-Home-Worksop-sunflowers-2017

19 Sep 2017

Residents from the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop have been working hard to make a difference around there.

Firstly, Mick offered to paint the fence around the home. Being a DIYer, Mick wanted to spruce up the garden, so painting the fence seemed like a fantastic idea.

John, who loves gardening, took part in the home’s sunflower competition, and thanks to his patience he helped them to grow the tallest they possible could and was crowned the Old Vicarage sunflower champion.
