QUESTIONS ABOUT CARE
What kind of care is provided at Hamberley Care Homes?
We provide a range of care home services including 24/7 Nursing Care, Personal Care (also known as Residential Care) and Dementia Care, as well as Short Breaks/Respite Care. Our homes all provide one or more of these types of care.
You can find out specifically what type(s) of care our homes provide on the individual home pages.
Do you provide nursing care?
Every Hamberley Care Home can support people with nursing needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Hamberley nurses are experienced in caring for older people with complex health conditions. Taking a proactive approach to care for each individual reduces the risk of complications that may come with ageing, such as frailty and fall risk and failing eyesight and hearing.
Our nurses include those who specialise in a range of long-term complex care conditions, including dementia, rehabilitation following a stroke or neurological injury, and physical disabilities. At some of our homes, we provide specialist neurocare and neurorehabilitation for individuals following brain and spinal injuries.
Do you provide care for people with dementia?
Yes. At Hamberley Care Homes, our number one priority for residents living with dementia is to welcome, support and embrace their ever-changing needs.
Dementia can be extremely challenging, as well as unique to every person living with it. There will always be times where the symptoms of dementia can feel overwhelming and terrifying – thankfully, our Homemakers are trained to combat this, and having built up a credible and significant relationship with residents, they will be best suited to handle any situation.
We regularly organise activities and events with people from the local community, which means our residents can remain an important part of the world outside of their home. There are many clubs and workshops available for people living with dementia – for example, our Dementia-Friendly Cinema Club.
Our nurses include those who specialise in dementia and our homes include quiet, peaceful rooms around our care homes, built for relaxation. These areas are guaranteed to obtain minimal unwelcome stimuli so residents living with dementia can remain safe and undisturbed during their tranquil moments.
Do you provide care for people with neurological conditions?
Yes. Our skilled nursing teams include those who specialise in a range of long-term complex care conditions, including dementia, rehabilitation following a stroke or neurological injury, and physical disabilities.
A growing number of our luxury care homes benefit from the addition of neurocare and neurorehabilitation suites. Dedicated to long-term care and therapeutic treatments for people living with a range of neurological conditions and symptoms, Hamberley's neurocare and neurorehabilitation suites allow adults with complex needs to receive expert support.
Do you provide respite care or short breaks?
Yes. Respite care or short breaks with Hamberley give people the opportunity to recover from an illness or operation or enjoy a holiday away from home with full support from our Homemakers, Nurses and Wellbeing colleagues.
During a short break with us, guests benefit from the following:
- Accommodation in our spacious and beautiful en-suite rooms
- Restaurant-style dining
- Access to all of the facilities available within our luxury care homes
- A personalised wellbeing programme
- Blood pressure, weight and BMI checks
What is a Homemaker?
A Homemaker is a ‘universal worker’ role which means our Homemakers are carers, housekeepers and companions all in one. Hamberley’s Homemakers get to know each and every resident, so they understand precisely how to make their lives more content based on their unique wants and needs.
- Homemakers provide care and support for our residents, including administering medicine under the guidance of our clinical team
- Homemakers take care of the general day to day housework
- Homemakers offer companionship and take an interest in the lives of our residents, supporting them with their choice of lifestyle and wellbeing
Our Homemaker model makes the experience for residents a lot more like living in their own home. Within a family environment typically everyone shares responsibility for looking after each other and this creates a really nurturing, caring space. In many care homes, this feeling or attitude is lost - in Hamberley homes, we have genuine home-like communities where people want to live and work.
This model of care also means that residents have the best chance of experiencing truly person centred care – support that is tailored to their individual needs.
