Nursing care is dedicated to supporting people with both simple and complex nursing needs. Our nursing communities have 24 hour nurse leadership, supporting a care team with expertise, skills and knowledge. Our registered nurses tailor our care planning and care delivery to the unique and individual nursing needs of the people we care for.
Our Nursing Care
Our nursing communities care for people who need the planned and guided care of a qualified nursing team. That might, for example, include residents who need rehabilitative care following a stroke or injury, physical disabilities or a resident living with a long-term conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis or respiratory illness.
We carefully assess the level of nursing care for each resident and from this, create a collaborative care plan that is tailored to all of the needs of the individual. This plan is agreed with the resident, their family and health professionals to ensure it meets all their personal needs. Our care plans help ensure that each resident we care for is treated with respect and that their independence and choices are maximised.
Our care and nursing teams are given ongoing professional and personal development training to ensure we provide the very best clinical, emotional and social care. We work closely with a multidisciplinary team of doctors, community nurses, social workers, dieticians, physiotherapists and other health professionals to build the ideal support structure to meet individual care needs.
Lifestyle and Activities
Before coming to live at a Hallmark care home, every resident completes ‘About Me’, a booklet that gives us a great insight into their history, hobbies, likes and dislikes. This enables our care team to encourage and support residents to lead fulfilled lives through their relationship-centred care approach and tailor activities to suit their interests.
Our homes offer a wide variety of activities, clubs and lifestyle choices and our residents are assisted and enabled to take part wherever possible. Activities vary greatly and can be anything from a relaxing afternoon tea, visiting musicians and arts and crafts to a visit from the local farm.
For five years running, Hallmark Care homes have won the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design award for ‘Best Care Home’. Most of our homes offer a range of beautifully designed facilities such as our state-of-the-art cinema, relaxing therapy rooms, hair and nail salons and beautiful outdoor spaces, so that residents can continue their everyday routines in familiar settings. Residents are supported by our care team to use these facilities wherever possible. Residents can also enjoy time with family and friends over fresh coffee and homemade cakes in one of our friendly, vibrant café’s.
