Here’s an extract from a letter received regarding our service user , P.
‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ravensdale Nursing Home for the wonderful, holistic and professional care my client P is receiving.
P was assessed in hospital by the home manager in September 2014. P had complex physical & mental health needs, he had been in hospital for many months, and his condition was deteriorating. P was nursed in his hospital bed, his mobility had reduced, he could no longer walk, he had mental health problems – he had closed down completely and wanted to end his life.
P was over 65 years of age, the home manager discussed P’s case with his management, and agreed to take him on a temporary basis and the nursing staff at Ravensdale have worked very hard to try and re- habilitate him.They have provided P with an individual bespoke Care Plan to meet all his daily living needs. The Nursing Team are very dedicated and proactive and above all provide a holistic approach to P’s care needs.
P’s physical & mental health have now remarkably improved, the O/T and Unit manager have worked tirelessly with P to improve his overall physical & mental health.
P is now able stand and take a couple of steps, the care staff have encouraged and managed to take P outside in his wheelchair.
P’s mental health has improved significantly, he no longer wishes to end his life, he is happy at Ravensdale, has formed some good relationships with the nursing staff, and can smile again.
There is still a lot of ongoing work to be done with P, as I feel there is room for further improvement. I have no doubt that Ravensdale will continue to provide an excellent professional service and continue to improve P’s physical & mental health care needs.
I would certainly recommended Ravesdale Nursing Home, to other colleague’s within the Leeds Adult Social Department and outside private agencies.’
