Welcoming new residents through safe admissions

We specialise in providing care to older people and as a small care home with 22 en-suite bedrooms our team really get to know all residents, understand their needs, and encourage social friendships amongst residents living at Farthings.

We have a robust admission process in place to enable us to offer a safe and compassionate start to living within our care home.

The government guidelines were amended on 18 June 2021 and as such we too have amended our processes inline with differing scenarios as follows:

 

A Pre-Planned Admission from the Community

In order to follow this process the individual must satisfy the below requirements:

  • Be fully vaccinated (plus 3 weeks wherever possible) – evidence will be required
  • The local guidance from the Director of Public Health about community transmission of variants of concern is followed
  • No known contact with a COVID-positive person
  • We will take into consideration the current circumstances at home in terms of risk
  • An enhanced testing regime is followed, which consists of PCR prior to admission (within 72-hours), a PCR test on day of admission (day 0) and a further PCR test 7 days following admission (day 7) and daily rapid lateral flow testing until the results of the day 7 PCR have been received

 

Discussions: will take place prior to any admission with the home’s Registered Manager, this may be with yourself or a loved one.  This is to gain an overview of your current care needs and requirements.

Assessment: if it is likely we would be able to meet your specific needs the Registered Manager will arrange a Pre-Admission Assessment.  This is to meet you, discuss what your needs are and how you would like to be cared for.  It will also enable us to give you and your loved ones more information about our home and the facilities we have available to you.  Ordinarily, dependant on circumstance, this would take place face-to-face but rest assured all of our staff are vaccinated, tested three times per week and would be wearing all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for your safety.

Time: after initial discussions and assessments our prospective residents are given time to consider their decision, possibly alongside their loved ones.  Once a decision has been made please get in touch with the Registered Manager again who will work alongside you to arrange your admission at a time which is convenient to yourself, this could be the same day, in a couple of days or in a few weeks’ time, it is your choice.

Testing: we will provide a PCR coronavirus test which is to be completed within 72-hours before moving into the home and returned a negative result.  A further PCR will be required on the admission day (day 0) and on day 7.  In addition, rapid lateral flow tests will be required daily until the results of the day 7 PCR has been received.

Moving In: you are welcome to bring any personal effects to help you feel at home.  All our rooms are en-suite, and are equipped with a bed, bedside table, chest of drawers, wardrobe, chair, and a television.  You are welcome to bring a named visitor with you to help you settle in, they must follow the current visiting guidance which will be discussed prior to admission.

Settling In: a full Care Plan will be developed with you; this will include all the information the staff need to ensure they care for you how you would like to be.  In addition, the Activities Co-ordinator will spend some time getting to know you and will arrange tailored activities for your interests.  You are welcome to have visitors in line with the visitor guidance.

 

An Admission from Hospital, an Interim Care Facility, another Care Home, an Emergency Community Admission or a Community Admission unable to satisfy the requirements detailed above

 

Discussions: will take place prior to any admission with the home’s Registered Manager, this may be with yourself, a loved one or a healthcare professional.  This is to gain an overview of your current care needs and requirements.

Settling In: a full Care Plan will be developed with you; this will include all the information the staff need to ensure they care for you how you would like to be.  In addition, the Activities Co-ordinator will spend some time getting to know you and will arrange tailored activities for your interests.  Once you have received in-room care for 14-days and received a negative coronavirus test result from your day 12 PCR swab you will be able to meet the rest of the Farthings family and explore the home.

 

Every admission is different and above outlines some key stages throughout the admission process, however they are adaptable for everyone’s individual situations.  A thorough risk assessment will be carried out prior to any admission and the requirements for admission will be fully explained beforehand.

ASHALL CARE IS ECORACING!

We are supporting the NAPA – Tokyo Olympics Race.  NAPA (National Activity Providers Association) is a national charity that supports care services to prioritise wellbeing.

 

The NAPA helpline supports Providers to plan activities so that those with care and support needs can enjoy meaningful connection and conversation.  The NAPA Helpline forms part of our membership and offers free advice, support and information about activities, arts, and engagement for staff and family carers providing care, support and meaningful engagement.  To enable NAPA to continue to answer as many phonecalls as possible they were fundraising to fund the Helpline.  NAPA therefore created a virtual balloon race.

 

The balloons were launched on 8 August 2021 and are subjected to a simulated flight pattern based on the actual weather conditions, such as the prevailing wind speed and current temperature.  The simulation uses an advanced computer modelling programme linked to Google maps and commercial weather data supplier.  The race will be for a 7 day duration and the winner will be the balloon which has travelled the furthest in a straight line from the launch location.

 

You can follow our balloon using the following link https://ecoracing.co/balloon/view/230043

June 2021 News

ART THERAPY

Residents have enjoyed painting and experimenting with colours this month.  At Farthings we encourage art therapy as it is “a creative way for seniors to manage pain and stress and deal with memory loss.  Studies have found that senior who do art have fewer doctor’s visits, better physical health and require less medication.  They also fall less frequently.  One study connected art to decreased rates of loneliness and depression, along with better hand dexterity and higher morale.” www.scalabrini.com

ARMCHAIR EXERCISES

There have been some armchair exercise groups facilitated this month, residents have enjoyed taking part in this physical activity.  www.nhs.uk reports that there is “strong evidence that people who are active have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression and dementia.”

VISITS

We are welcoming friends and family into the home to see their loved ones.  This continues to be facilitated in a safe way inline with current Government guidance and it has been a pleasure to be able to witness so many happy reunions.

A game of bingo has been facilitated and enjoyed by all.

BIRTHDAYS

We have had several wonderful birthdays during June.  One of our lovely ladies also turned 90 and it was wonderful to celebrate her special day.

Emily facilitated a quiz which in turn lead to reminiscing about childhoods, being the tallest in class and subsequently their friendship groups.  The residents were extremely knowledgeable during the quiz and excellent at recognising famous faces!

Emily has had lovely discussions with the residents about their childhoods, what they did for work and their favourite things to cook, what it was like to live in the local villages.

Our equally fantastic Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have also donated us a Glo Box with some GlitterBug fluorescent potion to assist our hand hygiene training.  The Glo box has been set up for staff and residents (and visitors when we’re allowed) to use and see how clean their hands really are!  This clever box and cream allows us to identify areas on our hands and wrists we may miss when we are washing our hands.  In turn this will improve our infection control techniques and resident’s wellbeing.  Historically we were able to hire out the glo box from our local CCG for a set period of time, so this is a very welcomed addition to our training.

STAFF

We have welcomed Fagan back from her maternity onto the care staff team, Fagan is our Infection Control lead and is ensuring everyone has a go with our new glo box!

In the next week or two we will also be welcoming Pam and Leanne to our care team.  Pam is keen to start her care career and already knows some of the staff team.  Leanne has been a care assistant for many years, and we look forward to both Leanne and Pam joining our team.
