Nursing Care Team of the Year 2023
Abbey View Care Home
Abbey View has the capacity to provide nursing care for 25 residents across its two floors. The Nursing care provided includes:
Our residents receive 24 hour nursing care, delivered by our professional team of highly qualified Nurses and Healthcare Assistants.
Local GPs and other healthcare professionals visit the home regularly.
Our comfortable and spacious single bedrooms are all fitted with a personal en-suite, with one en-suite double room on the first floor, which is perfect for couples. We want all residents to feel at home in their own rooms, and encourage them to personalise them with their favourite possessions.
The home is occupied over two floors, both of which have relaxing and comfortable dayrooms and dining rooms, perfect for socialising. Our kitchen team cook fresh delicious and nutritious meals daily catering for a variety of different dietary requirements including IDDSI diets. Residents can also enjoy our courtyard garden area to relax in and enjoy the warmer weather and local wildlife.
We take a holistic approach to caring for our residents and are passionate about providing engaging daily activities for those who wish to participate. The home has dedicated Activities Therapists who coordinate a calendar of activities and events for residents. These activities help to enrich resident’s lives through:
Exercise classes & armchair aerobics
Entertainment & local community visits
Gardening & music therapy
Arts, crafts & games
Hair & spa treatments
Activities not only mentally stimulate and physically motivate our residents but also enhance their quality of life and wellbeing.
We have a wide variety of people under our roof to ensure a high quality of care is provided. All staff complete mandatory training courses from health and safety, safeguarding through to dementia, moving and handling and more. This is delivered through our internally developed Optimum Inspire College providing face-to-face and online training. All nursing and care staff are registered with The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or the Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC).
Our homes are part of the ‘My Home Life’ programme which is part of an international initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people. Staff involved in the programme develop new and better ways of working benefiting the residents who live with us in our homes.
Finally, all our staff embody our company values of Teamwork & Partnership, Quality & Best Practice, Openness & Honesty, and Kindness, Understanding & Respect. Our values provide clarity for all our people and send a clear message to our residents and their families about the care and support they should expect from us.
