How do you ensure an abusive free environment at your home?
We ensure a safe environment during every resident’s stay at our care home through our high levels of staffing of experienced nurses. We thoroughly interview and conduct background checks on our staff prior to hiring them so we know the details of their past work experiences and qualifications. Our nurses have a cumulative experience of 150 years; therefore, they are trustworthy and understand the proper protocol and behaviour within a care home. We encourage any feedback and will act on any concerns because we want to make sure every resident is comfortable and feels safe. We also have a nominated individual to act as a secondary point of contact and who has overall responsibility for supervising the management of the home and ensuring the quality of services provided.

At Bromson Hill, we offer a range of activities for residents to take part in every day – please refer to our Activities page on the website.

We have a part-time activities coordinator to ensure residents are able to have as active a lifestyle as possible. Our coordinator is open to any suggestions if we do not currently provide your desired hobby or activity. We hold quarterly resident, family, and staff meetings where anyone can raise ideas for new activities.
What can I expect on a day-to-day basis?
On a daily basis, you can primarily expect to receive any care, medication, or help you may need. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the communal dining room. You can expect a few activities at any day such as a coffee morning, musical entertainment, creative workshops, or a day trip to popular destination. Many residents spend their days in the communal rooms to socialize and interact with other residents. How you spend each day is entirely up to you but we provide resources to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.
What is the process for admission to Bromson Hill?
Our admission process is very seamless and simple. In order to be admitted to Bromson Hill, our manager will perform an assessment. This assessment involves looking at any physical difficulties, health or housing requirements, and more. If you already have a carer like a GP, we will take their opinions into account as well. Your local council should also be contacted to for any funding or other requirements you may need. After the assessment, a care plan will be agreed upon to make sure you are happy with the care you will receive at our home.
What happens if my care or nursing needs increase in the future owing to illness, age, or changing circumstances?
