OUR NURSING CARE SETS US APART


We employ our own nurses

It is inevitable that, sooner or later, most elderly care residents will need nursing care, yet over the last decade, we have seen many care home operators move away from offering nursing care, relying instead on visiting community nurses.

At Brook View, we have always believed that nursing is an intrinsic part of elderly care, and that as a care home, we have a moral obligation to provide our residents with whatever care they need, whenever they need it.

 

Reassurance 24 hours a day, seven days a week

You can’t put a price on peace of mind. We employ highly-skilled nurses to be on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that our residents can enjoy their homely surroundings, vibrant atmosphere and beautiful gardens with the reassurance that should they require nursing assistance at any time of the day or night, it’s not only available immediately, it’s provided by nurses they know, and who know them.

Your Care Services

Assisted Care

Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.

Nursing Care

Brook View’s nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.

Residential Care

Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.

Short Stay & Respite

We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.

Dementia Care

Although Brook View is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.

End Of Life

We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.

Wish you were here!

We aim to make every day worth writing about, and our residents enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what they’ve been up to at Brook View. Here are some of their recent highlights.

The words of our residents and relatives say more than we ever could.

“I’m writing this card on behalf of my mother who lives in the cottages within the grounds of Brook View. Mum is severely sight impaired so isn’t able to write this herself. She has her lunchtime meal everyday at Brook View and wants to say that since she has been having her meals the staff have all been so kind and welcoming, she’s always greeted and recognised and acknowledged as a person who likes to be there. She always enjoys her dinner and clears her plate every time as the dining staff will know! She says the choice is always very good and she’s very grateful when small requests are accommodated. Please pass on her grateful thanks to your team, with special thanks to the catering, dining, reception and cleaning staff. P.S I have been a guest of my mum for lunch and it’s been delicious!”

“It’s been nearly 3 weeks since Dad passed away, so I am slowly coming to terms with it. I’m sure it is never easy , but the time of year makes it very hard. But what I hold on to is the fact that he was where he wanted to be when he passed, at Brook View. And that is a testament to the care and affection you showed him in his short time with you. My dad was a very proud man and was so ‘not him’ lying there in that bed, but you gave him dignity as much as was possible and he trusted you all. Thank you. And from me, bizarrely, I miss seeing you all- I say bizarre because I would never have expected that, but it’s because you all gave me such wonderful support. You are a great team and I thank you all,”
