We are registered with Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide nursing and residential care for up to 49 individuals above the age of 65 years.
We provide residential care to service users who require support with the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, medication supervision, cooking, cleaning, and mobility which can no longer be managed at home.
We provide Nursing care to service users with more complex healthcare and rehabilitation needs, which cannot be provided at home.
The service includes frequent and complex medication regimes; regular wound care which can only be provided under the supervision of a qualified nurse where constant assessment, monitoring and care planning is essential.
Nursing staff are available 24 hours a day seven days a week across both home, who specialise in providing therapeutic and enabling care for our residents and are supported by teams of highly skilled healthcare workers who assist with all aspects of personal care and support to ensure our residents receive the very best care and attention.
Respite care is a service for people who wish to stay with us on a short term basis. This can be for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be for two weeks or a few months. Respite stays can also be arranged to give the carer of someone who is unable to look after themselves a well-earned rest.
At Blackwell Care Home, we firmly believe that the body and the mind are very closely linked and that keeping the body active, even for those who are perhaps less mobile than they once were, can also do wonders for their state of mind. As such, we have an Activities Team whose role it is to run a programme of pastimes to stimulate both body and mind.
We like to keep things varied, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy:
- Live music and dancing
- Bingo, quizzes, card games, arts & crafts
- Local day trips
- Reminiscence Therapy
- Light aerobic exercise to music
- Visits from local religious figures
We are also able to offer the following additional services:
- Physiotherapy, Occupational and Speech Therapy
- Aromatherapy & Reflexology
- Library Services
- Outings/Social Activities
