What sets us apart
We come under continual pressure to explain how and why our philosophy works for us. After all we have no magic formula, the whole team sees what they do as common sense or just good sense. But these demands have given us the opportunity to explore the way we have put our theories into practice and evaluate just what it is that we do managerially that allows the positive environment to thrive.
The culture and values of Spring Mount are unique and inextricably linked to the philosophy, environment and staff. For these reasons we have attracted a lot of media interest and as a result have written numerous articles for professional journals and published several articles in both local and national newspapers. We have been involved in various television documentaries promoting good practice in dementia care. These include featuring in World Action, Link and Sunday Live.
Meeting Peoples Needs
Janet, Jackie and Julian are always available for residents and their relatives and will spend as much time as necessary in order to help all concerned feel comfortable with their choice of this home. We are aware of the impact on carers and their families of making a decision for long term care and a full needs assessment will be made to ensure that we feel that Spring Mount is going to be the most appropriate place for you or your relative.
We know it can be very daunting experience visiting homes and trying to decide which will be right for you. Every placement is individual, for some it may be important for both carers and relatives to have at least one trial visit. This will give everyone the opportunity to get a feel of the homes atmosphere.
Every resident has a care plan, which is designed to meet his or her own individual needs. Ensuring that all areas of their life including physical, emotional and spiritual aspects are considered in our mission to promote well being in each person.
