Great Things About Bridgewater Manor Care Home In Worsley
Our Care Philosophy
Our care philosophy is built on a number of core principles that aim to provide the best living environment for elderly people. One of our values is “to build and operate homes that celebrate the wonder of people and provide a quality of care that is delightful.” Bridgewater Manor care centre staff encourage our residents to remain active whether that be intellectually, socially or physically. We also help our residents nurture strong relationships with fellow residents in order to create emotional connections. We are open to different approaches and options when it comes to giving care. Whilst our care philosophy has some fundamental values, our approaches to care are always in development. This means we are attentive to the needs of each individual who is living in our care homes.
Magic Table - Dementia Care
Bridgewater Manor care home we champion the use of the “Magic” table or “Tovertafel” in the dementia community. Our Magic Table is a sensory activity which uses projections, sounds, and lights to display games that our residents living with dementia can engage with. Research shows sensory, interactive playing has a range of positive effects on residents with dementia. We encourage both residents and family members to play freely. This is a great way for younger members of the family to experience positive play with their older relatives. Allowing them to enjoy themselves and nurture strong relationships. New Care is one of few care home providers who are using the ‘Magic table’ as part of an innovative strategy to help residents living with dementia.
Encouraging wellbeing for our residents is an integral part of our daily care services. To further support our residents we actively participate in“OOMPH!” wellbeing training which further develops our entire staff team in delivering a 360 degree approach to wellbeing. We aim to create a positive impact on residents at all times. The training and support packages enable staff to help our residents with everyday mental stimulation, regular and fun physical activities, as well as forging new connections and enjoying new experiences. Oomph training gives our team the tools that are needed to create emotional, mental, and physical stimulation for our residents.
