- Our Commitment
Our aim at Curam Care Homes is to provide community and social opportunities for our residents through a person-centred approach.
This includes empowering each individual to remain active in their social, religious and recreational activities and to stay connected with family, friends and the wider community.
A home is a sanctuary, a retreat from the outside world that should be happy, comforting and uplifting. Our homes are designed with this core idea in mind, considering how each space contributes and builds upon this experience.
Creating a Home is at the heart of what we do
Our buildings strive to nurture close-knit communities, the arrangement of spaces including entrance lobbies and corridors, loungers, sitting rooms and dining rooms will be designed to create opportunities for social interaction, whether planned or unplanned.
Creating a Community is at the heart of what we do
- To foster an atmosphere of independence and choice where residents feel confident in themselves and their own abilities;
- To provide a holistic and confidential approach to care which ensures individuality, dignity, empathy and understanding;
- To deliver to our residents the highest standards of nursing, medical and personal care.
Taking Care is at the heart of what we do
We believe in Healthy Ageing and helping all of our residents to Age Heathily and Actively. The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing has identified 9 steps to Healthy Ageing and at Curam Care Homes, we strive to help our residents along each step.
These include – Access to Services, Diet and Nutrition, Education and Life Long Learning, Employment and Volunteering, Environment and Accessibility, Long Term Care, New Technologies, Physical Activities and Social Inclusion and Partnership.
Healthy Ageing is at the heart of what we do
At Curam Care Homes, our commitment is to excellence. We pride ourselves is creating a home from home environment for our residents.
Our commitment to excellence applies to our care, quality and standards; our homes; our teams; and all that we do for our residents.
Our Director of Care, Quality and Standards supports our local Care Home teams in helping to provide the highest levels of care and standards throughout our homes. Whether it is auditing our compliance, looking at new developments and initiatives or everyday support, we are very fortunate to have this structure in place across our Curam Care Homes.
Our local Care Home teams including our Directors of Nursing, Assistant Directors of Nursing and all of their extended teams share our commitment to excellence everyday. They are key to preparing and updating our personalised Care Plans for each resident in conjunction with the resident, their families and other healthcare providers. These plans are all individual and will capture the ongoing journeys of our residents and ensure that we adapt to their changing needs.
At Curam Care Homes, we are committed to excellence in staff training and development in order to maintain our high levels of resident centred care in its homes. We aim to create a culture of learning where all staff, in partnership with Curam Care Homes, take responsibility for their own continuing professional development and training.
