Life at Berry Pomeroy
At Berry Pomeroy we are dedicated to providing our Residents with the best possible care, maintaining their dignity and encouraging their independence. We aim to provide a homely and welcoming environment for them to enjoy and continue to live with as much independence and freedom of choice as possible.
Our aims and objectives are to:
- Provide a Christian environment that is as near as possible the same as the Resident’s own home.
- Provide kind, sympathetic and dignified personal attention.
- Encourage and help Residents to feel secure and to care for and understand each other.
- Ensure Residents are fulfilled according to their capability.
At Berry Pomeroy we offer support for persons who are no longer able to cope with the practicalities of living in their own home. The Home is intended for male and female Residents, but is not suitable for Residents with restricted mobility due to the structure and layout of the building.
The services we offer include:
- 24 hour quality care
- Long term care/ Respite care / Day care
- Nutritious meals
- Activities and entertainment
- Housekeeping and laundry service
- Visiting hairdresser & chiropodist
On admission each Resident is allocated a key worker who will assess individual requirements and develop a plan of care to ensure that the needs of the Resident are met, and that an appropriate level of assistance is given to maintain daily living requirements.
A varied selection of freshly prepared home cooked meals is provided daily by the in-house cook. Vegetarian options and special dietary requirements are also available.
Residents are invited to attend bi-monthly meetings with the Management where issues arising in the Home are discussed, and activities and upcoming events are planned. Questionnaires are issued yearly to ensure that Residents are able to communicate their opinions and offer suggestions for improvements.
Friends and family are welcome to visit Berry Pomeroy at any reasonable time and are also welcome to stay for meals or refreshments.
As well as responding to every day needs, we endeavour to assist service users to improve their quality of life by providing a safe, manageable and comfortable environment. We also provide support and stimulation to enhance their physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and social potential. A library service is provided, social activities are organised and coffee mornings are held in order to welcome visitors to the Home and raise money for extra amenities.
Monthly services of Holy Communion are held at the Home led by a Free Church Minister. The care team provide regular in-house activities including reminiscence, quizzes, crafts and card/board games. Each week a local charity visits the Home with a pet, our Residents find this very enjoyable and stimulating.
