Philosophy of Care
The management of Bryher Court Nursing Home is committed to delivering the highest possible standards of nursing care to all our residents in a pleasant homely environment.
Aims of our care include:
- Treating every individual with dignity and respect
- Promoting good health
- Respecting everyone’s right to self-determination and individuality
- Promoting as normal a lifestyle as physical and mental impairment will allow
We believe that each patient is a unique person, with individual needs and, as such, is entitled to skilled and sensitive care, delivered with compassion, courtesy and understanding. We welcome close involvement of family and friends in our residents’ care. Emotional, social, religious and cultural needs will be respected and promoted. Residents are encouraged to be fully involved in their care, their right to privacy will be respected at all times.
By providing a home from home – not only for our valued clients (the residents) but for their friends and family, we have an ideal setting in which to provide high quality, person centred care. We are aided by the fact that Bryher Court was built as a family home. It has character. It has homely traditional features which our residents are familiar with and enjoy.
Our aim is to make friends and family welcome because we want them to visit and spend time with their loved ones. We want people to feel at ease with us, to like us and to trust us. In that way we can pull together and do our best for our residents.
Unfortunately not all family or friends can visit regularly. They themselves might be ill or simply live too far away and of course some of our residents have out-lived their loved ones. We will do our utmost to offer kindness and respect to our residents and thus make them feel wanted, important to us and part of our Bryher Court community.
