Philosophy of Care
Framland’s philosophy of care is to offer the highest standards of holistic care to each resident based on an initial assessment and a regularly updated plan of person centered care. Our aim is to encourage independence and individuality, whilst maintaining privacy and dignity. Individualised care is delivered within a secure, relaxed, homely and conducive environment where a residents physical and psychological care, wellbeing and comfort are of prime importance to both staff and management.
We liaise closely with family and friends, encouraging open two way communication at all times so as to ensure good relationships. It is our hope that, for all our residents, Framland is their “home for life” and in order to uphold this Framland is part of the Gold Standards Framework. This ensures, by working in close partnership with the district nurses and other specialist services, we are able to look after residents who have a terminal diagnosis.
Training and Development
We are committed to the training and development of our staff , which enhances the quality of life of our residents. All staff are CRB and ISA checked and receive a comprehensive induction programme. All complete mandatory training and either hold or are working towards their NVQ level 2 and/or 3 in Health and Social Care. Each member of staff is fully supervised and has an individual learning and development plan which ensures they are fully competent to deliver the highest standard of care in a professional manner.
Staff co-ordinate a daily program of in-house activities which is generated by the residents. This can be anything from reminiscence, current affairs, board games, arts and crafts, quizzes, sound and movement to cake making and decorating, flower arranging, and setting meal tables.
The Home has regular visits by various singers accompanied by keyboard and guitar, and a flautist. Entertainment is also provided by a drama company in the form of musical shows or pantomimes. There is a canal boat trip during the summer months as well as trips to the pub, local shops, and the Country Park. There is a Church service held each month in one of the lounges.
Food and nutrition is an important aspect of the care we provide and menus are carefully selected to offer a nutritious well balanced and healthy diet. Special dietary needs are catered for, and birthdays, anniversaries and special occassions are celebrated. All food is cooked on the premises using fresh fruit and vegetables from a local supplier. We pride ourselves in the choice and quality of food we serve.
