Catering for your needs

Because Orchard House Care Home is registered for both nursing and residential care if your needs should change it is more than possible that we will be able to provide the care that you need therefore you would not have to move to another home. We also have a nurse on duty at all times to monitor any changes in your health and who can act accordingly.

Our Night Time  ‘Check It’ system

At night our residents are cared for by using the ‘Check It’ system – a scanner that records the time and care given, this then gives us a clear picture of care needs required at night.

We are also working towards the ‘Gold Standards Framework’ enabling residents to live well in the last stages of life also helping family members feel supported, informed and involved throughout this time.

How our home is run

Our Registered Manager who is also our General Manager oversees all  the general running of the home.  We also have a Care Manager who oversees the clinical care given to all our residents. The majority of our care assistants have or are working towards an NVQ qualification and we are proud to say that we have carers who are ’Dignity Champions’.  These carers are committed to improving the quality of service provided and aim to create a caring environment with compassion and respect for our residents.  We also employ a Director of Training & Operations who manages regular staff training and development ensuring all our staff gain the correct skills to enable them to carry out their job to the best of their ability.

Our catering staff provide a nutritious and varied menu for our residents and we have been awarded a 5* rating with East Lindsey District Council.

The home has been awarded 3* ‘Excellent’ by Lincolnshire Social Services for the services we provide.

As this is a decision not to be taken lightly, trial visits can be arranged to sample ‘home life’ which will hopefully make the choice easier and less stressful for all parties concerned.  Please speak to our General Manager or Care Manager for details.
