Services & Activities
Bearwood House is committed to delivering Person Centred Care, and that is why we train all our staff in the methods of this philosophy. By adopting a person centred approach we can ensure that the care provided to our residents is flexible and responsive to their individual needs. Care plans are structured following a personalised assessment of the resident taking into account preferences and desires. This assessment results in a specialised individualised care plan with an emphasis on the wellbeing and desires of the resident.
We employ experienced staff, who are offered continuous training and education. We ensure that our team is always up to date with skills and information, and never lose sight of our purpose. Care assistants working with us receive regular external and in-house education through a comprehensive training package, aimed at the special needs of residents. In addition to this we ensure that staff are capable of offering a multitude of services.
Our facility has an experienced management team that is on hand around the clock to provide the levels of expert care that residents require and deserve.
Staff are also trained in a number of enablement treatments to help clients get the most out of their time at Bearwood House.
