Welcome to Havenmere
At Havenmere specialist nursing home in Immingham, we build our care and activity plans around individuals, supporting, nurturing and encouraging them to live happy, fulfilled lives. The Exemplar team care for people living with neuro-disabilities, mental ill-health, stroke, brain injuries and dementia.
Havenmere provides a three stage care pathway, from the wraparound care of the main home to The Bridgeway OneCare service. This extended care pathway accommodates those returning to life in the community, or is a way into care for people with a progressive condition who may not yet require complex nursing care.
Havenmere is arranged over three ten-bed units; Mayflower, Clyfton and Pilgrim. Each unit has a choice of lounges, a dining room and kitchen.
At Havenmere, we understand the importance of good, nutritious food. Our varied restaurant style dining menu is developed with service users to ensure we cater for personal tastes and dietary preferences including religious and condition-specific requirements.
Well-maintained accessible gardens include decking areas for sitting and relaxing, space for parties and areas for gardening.

The Bridgeway - a supportive, transitional step-down service
The Bridgeway provides a transitional care pathway at Havenmere for people with mental health needs, forensic backgrounds, acquired brain injuries, neuro-disabilities, Huntington’s disease and physical disabilities.
The specialist, outcome-focussed model of care is flexible and dependent on a person’s needs. The Bridgeway allows people to live in a less restrictive, household environment, where life skills and independent living is key.
As well as providing a step down service for people who no longer require a high level of complex nursing care within Havenmere, The Bridgeway provides a step-in service from hospitals and other care settings for individuals who do not require intensive clinical
input but still require a level of nursing care. Should a person’s needs increase, perhaps due to them living with a degenerative condition, we would look to transfer them internally into our main service within Havenmere.
The Bridgeway pathway means people can receive continuity of care, hospital admissions are avoided and we can support people to reach their goals and either increase the support they require, or enable them continue on a rehabilitation pathway.
The Bridgeway is made up of a six-bed apartment and two one-bedroom apartments, both have independent access from Havenmere’s main reception. The large apartment has shared kitchen and living areas, allowing service users to interact and support one another, share cooking duties and socialise together. The two one-bedroomed apartments are self-contained, which allow for more independent living.
For much of his adult life, Tim lived in a number of community and acute mental health services, and was detained under the Mental Health Act. By 2015, Tim found support at Havenmere, where he could finally receive the person-centred care he had been missing. Tim began counselling and over time met his personal goals.
As he progressed further and developed more skills of everyday living, Tim moved into The Bridgeway. Today, Tim cooks and cleans for himself, enjoys weekends away with his family and lives with more independence. Setting his own goals and timescales, Tim is living life to the full and moving closer to his goal of returning to live in the community.
"The Bridgeway provides Tim with the ideal environment for his rehabilitation and recovery. From initially requiring 1:1 support, to now living independently in The Bridgeway, we have been able to meet Tim’s needs as he progresses towards his personal goals.” Home manager, Diane Howden
