Our COVID-19 Approach

In line with recent Government recommendations effective from April 2022, care homes in England no longer have restrictions as to the numbers of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained. LFT testing is no longer mandatory, though to protect the safety and wellbeing of our residents and teams, we would appreciate your support in continuing to do so. Appropriate guidance for using PPE must be followed whilst visiting.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Residential Care

Residential Care is suitable for individuals who might require a little more assistance with their own day-to-day personal care. Residents staying with us can enjoy all meals and various social aspects of life in a comfortable and understanding environment, in addition to receiving help as and when it’s needed. Before you or a loved one choose to make The Porterbrook Care Home your home, we will have a full consultation with you on a confidential basis, to discuss your needs and requirements. This isn’t just about essential care, it’s about discovering your individual likes and dislikes too. These conversations will allow us to build a personal care plan, which will then be shared with key staff.

Dementia Care

When delivering Dementia Care our focus is on ensuring that each resident feels comfortable and safe and has everything they should wish for. Our aim is always to foster independence and our experienced team is highly focused on delivering the best person-centered care. Due to our wealth of Dementia Care knowledge and experience working with individuals who have suffered or are currently suffering with memory loss, allows our wonderful staff to provide unrivalled care in a warm and safe environment to all of our residents. When it comes to assisting individuals who are living with dementia, daily care is entirely tailored to each resident’s needs, as well as the desires and perspectives of their friends and family.
