The Gold Standard
Professionals provide the highest standards of 24-hour nursing care every day.
Over three-quarters of our team have worked at the ‘Royal’ for three years or more and ten members of staff have each served ten or more years. Having such a long serving and dedicated team provides continuity and enables us to focus on the individual needs of each of our residents.
We provide the following services;
1. Nursing Care
2. Respite Care
3. End of life/ Palliative Care
4. Mild Dementia Care
1. Nursing Care
At Royal Leamington Spa Nursing Home, we provide nursing care. This means that qualified registered nurses are on duty 24-hours a day. Our nurses are supported by a team of well-trained care staff, domestic, kitchen and activities staff. Nursing care is for residents who have more complex health needs. However, you can be reassured that nursing care can be successfully provided away from more clinical and impersonal surroundings. Be assured that the time that you spend with your loved one will be quality time, focused on enjoyment, and not worry or stress. We understand how difficult it is for older people and their families to cope with illness and how it impacts on their quality of life. Our nurses will make a full assessment and develop with you a plan of care that not only supports the residents’ health and well-being, but supports and manages specific illness and conditions. All of our nurses are fully qualified, experienced and have a strong understanding of the most up-to-date clinical practices. They also maintain the necessary clinical skills to support the home. Nurses work closely with our wider care team so care is delivered seamlessly. Our team is able to provide nursing for very complex needs right through to End of Life care with dignity and compassion.
2. End-of-life/Palliative Care
Good end of life care is about living as much as it is about dying. It is about managing symptoms so that each person remains as comfortable as possible and is able to make choices about their care. Together with each resident and their family, we work in close partnership with the GP, district nurses and palliative care service or Macmillan team. Developing good relationships with professionals who can provide specialist knowledge and advice is a key part of our service. End of life care is about providing support that meets the needs of both the person who is dying and the people close to them. Part of this is ensuring psychological, social, spiritual and practical support. And it also includes understanding the importance of demonstrated love, warmth and comfort together with a high level of human connection through touch, sensory stimulation, sensory calming while limiting environmental stresses. It involves caring for relatives and forward planning so that needs and wishes are respected and the dignity of the resident and their family is upheld. In all aspects of supporting end of life care, we are sensitive to the needs of family and friends. Whenever possible overnight stays are accommodated and staff ensure that meals, snacks and refreshments are available. Families and friends are consulted, listened to and involved in every way.
We understand how difficult it can be for families or friends providing ongoing care. For this reason it's important to occasionally find time for yourself. Our respite care services provide a crucial break for carers, either for just a few hours with a visit to one of our day clubs or an overnight stay in a care home for a few days or a few weeks. This offers family carers the chance to do daily chores, go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off. We also provide convalescent care, to help people who need to recuperate after a hospital stay and to support them to be well enough to go back home. We offer the opportunity for short term stays at our homes, subject to availability. Short term respite stays can be arranged to give carers a well-earned break. Our homely surroundings are warm and welcoming, and are a refreshing break from a hospital-style environment. Respite care can also provide an ideal environment for people recovering from illness and wanting help to get back on their feet.
