Two Acres Care Home specialises in Dementia Care with Nursing. We see each resident as an important individual and all the care is planned to meet each resident’s requirements.
We have a large number of residents, who are funded by the NHS and we also work closely with the local adult social services.
Pre-admission assessments are carried out by our Manager or Deputy Manager. On admission in to the Home, introductory health check and person-centered, individually tailored Care Plans are carefully compiled. Two Acres aims to deliver person-centered, individualised care packages for all residents. Individualised Care Plans are designed to ensure quality care delivery, tailored to individual levels of need; maintain self-respect, preserve dignity and privacy, and ensure that residents lead full and happy lives.
The Care Plans allow for personal preferences such as daily routine, food likes and dislikes, preferred form of address to be recorded and carried out.
Care Plans also incorporate risk assessments and leisure interest that the residents may have. Risk is an integral part of normal daily life and we strive to maintain our residents’ ability to make informed choices about their lives. We also encourage full involvement of the residents or their representatives in drawing up an appropriate Care Plans, so that all their care needs are met sufficiently.
Residents may continue to be looked after their own GP, provided the Home is within the designated practice area. Should this not be the case, registration will be with a GP Practice willing to accept the resident on their list. Our Registered Nurses book GP visits whenever necessary. In an emergency, immediate referral is made via Ambulance Services, to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital.
Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy & Speech Therapy are all available through referral to NHS by the GP.
Dental care is provided by the visiting Dental Surgeon.
Optical care is provided by a visiting Optician.
Any other secondary healthcare needs are facilitated by the GP.
Medical supplies and Specialised Equipment are provided by the Home for all Nursing Care.
Social workers and NHS Continuing Healthcare Assessors visit the Home regularly for routine reviews of residents.
Smoking is generally discouraged in the building, including in the bedrooms. Those who wish to smoke may do so outside in designated areas, under the supervision of the staff.
