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 have worked within the private Nursing Home environment most of my professional life. I started at Summerdyne 25 years ago, first as a senior Night Nurse and a few years later progressed to Deputy Manager. I achieved an NVQ Assessors qualification in 1998 and have used this to help some of our carers gain their NVQ level in care.
I completed my Registered Managers Award and became the manager at Summerdyne Nursing Home in 2003.
My ethos of care is that the home should provide care which will enhance each resident’s life with dignity and respect. Also I believe that each resident’s life should continue wherever possible with the same purpose and interest that they have had in the past.
I am passionate about ensuring that each resident feels special and that we care for them as we would our own family. Each day when I go to work 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.
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.
