Newstead sits on a hill overlooking Hereford, a combination of a large converted town house and purpose built accommodation, designed to care for residents with both nursing and residential care needs.
The home was acquired by Heritage Manor group in early 2016, and has since undergone a refurbishment to make this established home both comfortable and appealing for its residents and staff. The home enjoys a wide range of communal area, with multiple lounges, dining rooms, conservatory and sheltered garden areas.
We are very proud to have achieved the Gold Standard Framework accreditation in 2014 and pride ourselves on the palliative care we provide, the support given to relatives and our close liaison with the local palliative care team. Equally important to us is the building of open and transparent relationships with relatives, advocates and the multi-disciplinary teams that we encounter on a daily basis.
We are passionate about ensuring the residents entrusted in our care are treated with dignity and respect and that we deliver a high standard of care. We are very proud that we achieved the Gold Standards Framework Accreditation in 2014 and pride ourselves on the palliative care we provide, the support given to relatives and our close liaison with the local palliative care team.
I completed my Adult Registered Nurse training at the Worcester school of Nursing in 1994 and have spent the last 10 years specialising in Oncology and Haematology in Bristol and Cheltenham in both the NHS and private sector. I have worked in hospices, with Parkinson's disease, stroke and elderly care patients. My area of interest is end of life care and I completed a Diploma in palliative care at St Richard's Hospice in 2008.
I am privileged to work alongside a committed team of nurses led by Jan Wilson, known as JayJay, Senior Nurse. She has dedicated 27 years of her career to the care of residents at Newstead House. She was also instrumental in the home gaining the Gold Standards Framework Accreditation, is our GSF Lead and Dignity Nurse.
Administratively we are supported by Jan Gittings who also has a long service history having commenced employment in 1997.
Within the remainder of our team, 41% have dedicated anything from 5-27 years to caring for our residents.
Relatives entrust their loved ones into our care and we see it as a privilege to care for them as they become part of the Newstead family.
We provide residential and nursing care, on a long term, convalescent or short stay basis. Our team are long-serving at Newstead House, reflecting a happy and caring home.
As with all of our homes, we do our upmost to ensure our residents get the most they can from life. We have achieved the Gold Standard Framework for palliative care, an industry kitemark for care excellence that few homes are able to achieve.
Our food is locally sourced, cooked from fresh ingredients and so tailored to individuals’ wishes and needs.
