One of the first homes to be awarded the Worcestershire Dementia Care standard, this happy home is located in a well converted regency house and provides the highest quality 24 hour care.
Summerdyne is situated in the picturesque riverside town of Bewdley, enjoying all the amenities of a bustling Worcestershire town.
The home is an original regency house, converted to provide accommodation for 27 residents in both single and double rooms over 2 floors. As a smaller, more personable home, it provides the highest quality of care 24 hours a day in a happy and homely environment.
A long established home, with a stable and experienced staff of nurses and carers, Summerdyne has an reputation in the area for being a happy and relaxed home. It has also achieved the Gold Standard Framework for palliative care, an industry accreditation for excellent palliative care.
I became the manager at Summerdyne Nursing Home in 2018. I have spent the last 25 years working in the elderly care sector, and have seen many changes. I have always kept myself up to date with new ideas and guidelines.
My ethos of care is that our residents feel like they are in their own homes, and that staff have been invited in to assist them. I believe that it is very important for residents to be able to continue to live their lives with meaningful activities that are person centred to each individual.
My wish is to provide an environment where each resident is able to bring their own, unique personality, to create a family unit and be able to share their experiences and life history with each other and staff alike.
I am passionate about ensuring that each resident feels special and that we care for them as we would our own family. Each working day I see as a privilege to make a difference in their lives and I trust that my attitude is helping our carers to feel the same sense of achievement.
As home Manager I am a visible, positive role model working alongside the caring team, providing both leadership and when required working as a team member to ensure that each and every resident`s needs are met, keeping the open and friendly environment that the home has offered for so many years.
We have long-standing and dedicated nursing teams in our homes, with many years of professional experience between them. This has enabled us in a number of our homes to have achieved the highest accreditation for nursing care, the Gold Standard Framework.
"Thank you for everything you have done, caring for B over the last 6 years and especially in the last couple of weeks. She saw so many of you as so much more than carers and often referred to you as friends. We will miss you all very much and are forever grateful for what you have done."family of B, February 2019
"Thank you for your loving care and kindness. When she moved in she was so withdrawn and frail, but you restored her to the fun loving lady I knew so well. She was so happy living here and made a lot of friends. You are all truly wonderful and should be proud of your dedication."T and EC, friends of resident, November 2019
"Both management and staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful. The care home is more like a big happy family and everyone who works there are very friendly and helpful and give 110% they work very hard and are a credit to you. I know that when I go home that my Mum is safe and cared for and my Mum has settled in well. So I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work that you all do."AP, son of resident, September 2018
"All the staff are very kind and caring towards our mum and us. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We are always made to feel very welcome. Mum particularly enjoys the food which we understand is sourced very locally. We find the nursing staff are always very proactive."MC, daughter of resident, October 2018
