Great Things About Formby Manor
Our Care Philosophy
“To build and operate homes that celebrate the wonder of people and provides a quality of care that is delightful.” It is our aim at Formby Manor to enable all of our residents to maintain the highest level of independence and achieve their full potential whatever that may be – physical, intellectual, emotional or social. We believe this philosophy can be achieved by providing professional, person-centred care, nurturing each resident individually exploring and understanding their needs with the appreciation that care requirements may change and that the team will be responsive to those changing needs. We are there every step of the way.
In line with our care philosophy at Formby Manor, we have a “Magic” table or “Tovertafel” in the dementia community. There is significant literature on the positive effects on dementia of play. From our observations, the impact of the “Magic Table” is extremely positive for residents living with dementia. Residents and their relatives alike can play freely on the “Magic Table”. In addition, this is a particularly useful opportunity for involving children to experience positive play with their older relatives. New Care is one of a small group of providers who are leading the way in the UK, by purchasing the “Magic” table as part of our overarching strategy to provide opportunities for our residents living with dementia and their relatives to have fun together.
In order to develop the wellbeing aspect of the service at Formby Manor, we have invested in ‘OOMPH!’ well-being. Oomph! provides training to our entire staff team to deliver a 360 degree approach to wellbeing, demonstrating a positive impact at all times. The training and support packages enable our staff to deliver everyday mental stimulation, regular, fun physical activity and new experiences & connections for our residents. We have enabled all team members at Formby Manor to provide a set of complementary services to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents.
Why You Should Choose Us
Meet the Team
Debra Roose, Home Manager
Having worked around the UK, I was really keen for my next move to bring me back home to the North West. I looked at lots of different opportunities but this one with New Care stood out for me; I was impressed with the company’s values and its beautiful purpose-built facilities and was over the moon to get the job. As a relatively young care centre, it is my aim to develop and strengthen our presence in the region and ensure we become the care home of choice in Formby and the surrounding areas.
Diane De Isaula, Deputy Home Manager
After starting work at the age of 15 at St Joseph’s Hospice in Thornton, I was asked by Father Francis O’Leary to help set up a 40-bed hospice for patients with HIV and other diseases in Honduras. While in Honduras I met my husband and returned to the UK where I continued to work for St Joseph’s Hospice, whilst completing my RGN training . I was impressed with New Care from my first visit, I can honestly say that from the moment I walked into the reception area I fell in love with the home, the residents and staff. The atmosphere here is unbelievable and the care is just amazing.
Kelsa Henry, Wellbeing Coordinator
I moved from Londonderry, 7 years ago to study a Bachelor of Science. I have worked in the care industry for nearly 4 years, most recently as the Wellbeing Coordinator at Formby Manor. Not only is the environment beautifully designed, it feels like a home – and the staff are delightful. New Care are very much person centred, and the individual is always at the heart of what we do. It is a privilege to work here each day and do the job I love.
