Hassingham House Care Centre

This care home is the best I have ever been in. This care centre is not only excellently well lead by the manager and all her staff but really does feel like a friendly family home. The staff take time to speak with residents and family members even when they are really busy all the residents are listened to and able to make choices as much as they can for themselves. Activities and entertainment are well planned and varied and there is always something for all to do in the lounge. I cannot think of a better place for my father to be. The nursing staff and carers are all fantastic.

The overall standard of the home is very good. The staff are very helpful and kind to residents. My husband has been at the home for nearly a year now and he seems quite happy most of the time, he has Alzheimers so he's not able to tell me too much. I know he is well fed and kept clean.

Went to a gala dinner on the 20th June, excellent evening, lounge was decorated beautifully. All the residents looked lovely. The carers spent extra time getting everyone ready. The staff all of them go the extra mile and when I leave my husband for respite I feel confident he will be very well looked after. The staff are all friendly. Take time to speak to everyone as though they are their own relations, very impressed.

The most important points in looking for a care home on behalf of my mother were visible as soon as the door opened when I visited Hassingham House in April 2014. No appointment was made, however Sally and all the staff were instantly impressive, encouraged by the relaxed atmosphere and smiling faces of all individuals within the care home as well as the standard of the facilities. Relatives are invited to attend Regular guardian meetings to air there views and discuss moving forward on improvements. The extent to how residents are encouraged to participate in the various daily activities and events has exceeded my expectations throughout 2014 Hassingham House celebrated Christmas in full decorative style for all to enjoy. My sister and I were overjoyed when offered the opportunity to join my mother for a traditional Christmas day lunch. All cooked in house by the excellent kitchen staff.

I cannot praise enough the care exhibited in all aspects of life at Hassingham House. All the staff really care for all the residents and the welcome when visiting is so great. I attended the Christmas party for residents, which was great fun, and I know that my mother had a fun time at Christmas. For us, as a family, we know that my mother is loved and cared for and I know that she is extremely safe. It really is like home. I know how difficult it is to make the decision that a loved one has to enter a care home, but whilst my mother has been there I have nothing but praise.

I have been looking for care for my brother, he has been visiting once a week with his wife, for a few hours, the Manager Sally suggested this would be a good way to get him used to the home. He has been really enjoying it which will make his eventual move easier. The time spent over Christmas from the staff to ensure all the residents had a great time, was wonderful. Thanks everyone at Hassingham, amazing staff, nothing to much trouble, the afternoon entertainment is fun filled. Staff and residents are all happy, obviously a well run home. Well done Sally keep up the good work. I know John will be really happy.

Amazing person centred care
My friend was not settling initially and the Manager spent a long while with her whilst I was there, talking and stroking her hand. She was upset about her bath times and the manager asked her questions about her life at home and what her routine was, ended up with everything being sorted and her bathing with the night staff. She took the time to find out what her home routine was like. The kitchen staff, done the same with her food, nothing is too much trouble for them at Hassingham House. All staff really ask questions and provide choice, I will be bringing my Mum to Hassingham when she is ready. Good work to all.

FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE
Whilst visiting my friend Meg, I was overwhelmed with the swift attention the manager dealt with her small concerns, she wanted to get up and showered at 07.00 and her bell was stiff. Immediately Sally came in she sat next to Meg, held her hand, listened to her concern and immediately looked at the bell and had it changed, then she asked Meg if she would like to get up with the night staff. Meg has said that the care is wonderful and she now is going to stay permanent. I noticed the staff were happy and the other residents were all happy too. What a wonderful run home, well done Sally and your team. Keep up the good work you all do.

After researching through Care/Nursing homes and looking round we felt Hassingham House was that bit extra. Staff seem well organised and happy. Sally (manager) and Becky (deputy manager) have been extremely supportive as placing my husband into permanent residential care was not an easy decision. However I feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. My husband is happy, settled and visits are happy ones.

After looking around a number of care homes in the area for my father, and also trying Hassingham House for respite. There was no question where dad was going to end up when the tough decision came. The management Sally and Becky were very helpful, thoughtful and caring whilst we were trying to get dad placed. Nothing seems to be to much of an issue for the staff. For example my dad needed attending to 2 whilst we were visiting him in the space of 30 mins, this was no trouble at all for Ruth, Karen and Julie. You are always offered refreshments when visiting by Beth, Shaun and Luke. All in all I would have no issues if my children were to book me a place now for later life!

I would definately recommend Hassingham. My uncle has been at Hassingham for three years now everytime I visit, he is always so happy, so clean and turned out, all the care staff are always smiling and really generally care. The activities team stop at nothing to involve all the residents, I even saw the Manager bring a resident down to the entertainment one day in her bed, she didnt want her left out. All the staff generally show Dignity to the residents and the new flooring looks lovely. The home is always warm and friendly and just like a real home. My mum always gets little notes of communication with updates and whats going on. The management at Hassingham seem to have it just right, well done, I always talk about Hassingham and how good they all are. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them, they make my unle very happy.

Hassingham House Care Centre

It's not the building or the location that is the heart of this care home, although don't get me wrong, both are very good. It's the management,staff and residents that make this care home a joy to visit. Yes, I've included residents because their cheerful disposition is so very apparent the moment you enter Hassingham House. But it starts at the top. Management have created an environment that allows staff at all levels to be what they are,"carers" despite working within specific guidelines. Every member of staff that we spoke with "cared" for the people in their charge. Sure, if you look closely at the furniture in dads room, it was tired and reaching end of life, sadly just like dad himself. It's the people that make the difference. Dad died at Hassingham House in June after a short illness and we wouldn't change a thing regarding his care in those final weeks. Thank you. Would we recommend this home - it's a big yes from us.
