OUR NURSING CARE SETS US APART


We don’t rely on community nursing

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 Kingfishers, 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

Kingfishers 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 Kingfishers 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 Care

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 Kingfishers. Here are some of their recent highlights.

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

“Just want to say how much I enjoyed the celebration tea. It was a bonus the weather allowed us to sit in the garden and the lovely background music was perfect for the occasion. I was overwhelmed by the warm reception I received from so many. I was not just given a polite “hello” but was swamped with smiles and hugs. With all the comings and goings at Kingfishers I did not expect so many to even remember me. All being well I will next come to the Open Garden event.”

“Please thank ALL of the wonderful caring staff at Kingfishers for making Mum’s birthday that extra special yesterday. Thank you all for our delicious lunch, coffee and cake yesterday too. It was so kind of you all to treat Mum to a fantastic Birthday Cake Surprise! Mum said that it was so good and that we had missed out, when I spoke to her on the phone last night, but as you know Martin and I had a long journey back home again.”

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

“I firstly wanted to start by thanking you and the full team at Kingfishers for the way in which you cared for my dad, you supported me and, importantly, handled a very upset Mum. Taking the step of putting my Dad into care was difficult and worrying to us. Even in the short while he was with you, I got to witness the care he received and, often when I walked in unannounced, it was as if the staff was looking after their Dad – so special was the care. You cannot begin to understand the relief that gave to my family and me. I cannot thank you all enough although I would like to give the team a thank you. My Dad was not in the position to say it when he joined you, but I know he would be immensely thankful for the care you provided. He was a proud man who wore a tie more days of his life than not. Appearance and retaining dignity would have been important to him. The tenderest care and a perfect shave you provided would have meant so much to him and it did to me. Thank you for making a very difficult situation as easy as it could be. Never have I been so happy with a decision we made as a family to entrust Dad to your care.”
