Woodlands Care home was acquired in 1991 by Husband and Wife team Mark, a Doctor, and Debra, a Nurse. We strive to work around our values.
Residents at Woodlands Care home have reached a stage in life where a higher level of care is required, and our staff are chosen for their combination of compassion and patience.
A smile costs nothing. Living with other people is made that little bit easier when they are kind, and so our staff strive to say (and make happen) a good morning and good night.
One of the hardest parts of growing old is losing sight of what used to be. We will always remember that our residents were once young, fit and healthy, and have had many experiences. At Woodlands Care Home, we treat each resident with dignity.
We are an organisation that stands on our honesty and our principles. Sincerity and fairness guide our staff in the care they deliver, ensuring that our residents get the best possible outcomes.
It is vital that Care Homes are transparent, both in how they are run and how the residents live each day. We encourage family members to visit at any time of the day and be a part of the Woodlands Care home family.
We recognise that even though we work in a home, we must remain professional. That does not mean grey – simply appropriate. When there is fun to be had, we will encourage it. But we must always be there to serve the residents who have chosen us as their carers.
The Friends and Family Test
Used by the NHS to assess work environments, we have adopted this single-question test for our care homes. We ask ourselves simply ‘Would the care you have just given be acceptable for a friend or family member who needs similar care?’
