Person Centred Care In Our Oxford Care Home

Every resident’s needs are as individual as they are, which is why our care is person centred. We aim to give each resident as much or as little support as they need to live the life they want to live.

It begins before moving in day, as our team take time and care to discover everything they need to know from new residents and their families.

From there, we can ensure that we fully comprehend what support is required and ensure everything is ready for their arrival.

At Chawley Grove, it’s vital to us that every resident feels they are at home. We know a transition into a care home can be challenging, so we do everything we can to cultivate a relaxing, warm environment.

Residents and their families can rest assured that our Clinical Team is ready if their care needs change, helping them through any short or long-term challenges.

Better yet, as staff, including Homemakers and Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches, are always engaging with residents, they can identify changing needs as and when they happen.

Care Homes in Oxfordshire

The Homemakers of Hamberley

At Hamberley Care Homes, we’ve reimagined the traditional role of a carer, so our residents will experience a holistic care approach like no other.

You won’t find another care home in Oxford offering ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ – care professionals who are a carer, housekeeper and companion all in one person.

Our Homemakers work in collaboration with the clinical team, so they understand the needs of each resident and can provide a continuity of care.

Homemakers are also companions - somebody to share a cup of tea with, who’ll join you for activities or simply sit quietly with you.

Housekeeping is also an essential aspect of the Homemakers’ work. They’ll be there to ensure rooms are tidy and maintained, not just during scheduled cleans but all the time. 

Homemakers encourage and support residents in their chosen lifestyles. We want to ensure residents can get out into the local community, no matter what their mobility challenges may be.

Whatever you like to do, Homemakers will go out of their way to facilitate activities and excursions that help you embrace life. After all, it is for living. 

Our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches

Our Oxford care home has a dedicated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach, as do all Hamberley Care Homes. These care professionals are committed to helping residents continue to live the life they want to lead in the home and beyond.

From the first conversation onwards, Chawley Grove’s Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach gets to know each resident in detail. They pay particular attention to residents’ life histories, their likes and dislikes, the hobbies they are passionate about and the activities they enjoy.

These conversations become the foundation of a Personalised Wellbeing Programme, a plan for ensuring residents live a happy and fulfilled life.

Our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coaches support residents to be more physically active, to take opportunities to socialise and ensure they are mentally stimulated too.

By working with residents, the Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach will devise fun activities, facilitate personal hobbies and encourage social connections.

Our Personalised Wellbeing Plans evolve and get reviewed every four weeks, ensuring changing needs are supported and that residents continue to be confident in their abilities.
