Philosophy of Care
Airedale Nursing Home aims to provide residents with a secure, relaxed and homely environment in which their care, well-being and comfort are of prime importance.
Carers will strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all residents within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so will be sensitive to the residents' every changing needs. Such needs may be medical/therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, physcological, spiritual, emotional and social, and residents are encouraged to participate in the developments of their individual care plans in which the involvement of family and friends may be appropriate and is greatly valued.
This will be achieved through programmes of activities designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction with other residents and with recognition of the following core values of care which are fundamental to the philosophy of our home.
All care staff within the home will be appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standards of care. A continuous staff-training programme is implemented to ensure that these high standards are amintained in line with latest initiatives and developments in care practices as may be laid down in appropriate legislation, regulations and the Care Quality Commission guidelines.
