Our homes are led by an experienced Nurse-led management team, and supported by a trained in-house team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants.
Each of our homes has a Life Skills/Activities Team to support with holistic and therapeutic treatments, and many of them have in-house Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Everyone who lives in our homes also has the support of Exemplar Health Care’s clinical experts, including our Consultant Nurse for Dementia Care and Behaviour Support Specialists. This enables people to access holistic care and a range of services in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.
We also work closely with community teams and other professionals, where required, to ensure that people receive the required support to meet all of their needs.
People living with dementia can also display behaviours of concern.
Many of the people we support have been deemed to have behaviours that are considered ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care services.
Our approach to behaviour support focuses on how we can prevent the need for restrictive practices and reduce the frequency and intensity of behaviours of concern.
All of our care and nursing colleagues complete our Exemplar Positive Behaviour Support (EPBS) training that’s been certificated by Bild ACT, and are supported by our central team of Behaviour Support Specialists through person-centred interventions, fortnightly clinics and regular advice forums.
