Nursing & Residential Home
The charm and elegance of Inglefield nursing home, a magnificent Victorian building, derives from the fact that it was once the family home of Lord Beaverbrook. The attraction of the area is clear with delightful Totland Bay and seaside village Totland a stone’s throw away.
About the Home
With several newly modernised additions, many of our rooms have access to either patio or veranda facilities. The choice of lounges gives our residents the opportunity to select the environment they wish to be in, whether they are in the mood for company or would prefer to relax in peace, overlooking the landscaped gardens.
Our wellbeing & activities co-ordinators arrange daily, varied activities for the residents as well as private one-on-one sessions in bedrooms for those who are less mobile. The residents have an excellent social calendar!
Independence is promoted throughout the home and regular visits from friends and family are encouraged and welcomed.
The cuisine at Inglefield is prepared to an extremely high standard. We ensure that our meals are made with the very best ingredients and that they are balanced, providing the right nutrients to keep our residents healthy.
Types of Care
At many of our homes we provide nursing care for older people with health problems. The care is 24 hours and is delivered by our experienced nursing teams who are both compassionate and professional, ensuring your loved one is looked after at all times.
There is a Registered Nurse on duty at all times, supported by the care staff, who all regularly attend training to keep up-to-date on all levels of care. When needed, our nurses will seek expert advice from visiting practitioners such as chiropodists, GPs and specialist consultants.
Our nursing equipment, such as profiling beds and moving & handling equipment, is updated frequently to ensure we can cater to our nursing residents’ specialist needs in the safest possible way.
We take into consideration each individual’s physical and emotional requirements and do our utmost to create an environment in which our residents feel comfortable and at ease.
Buckland Care homes provide respite care for people who may only require a short stay in a care home. Respite care is an invaluable service for those who care full-time for their loved ones, providing them with a chance to take a break from daily responsibilities.
Some residents use it as a way to trial the home before moving in full term, to see if they will feel settled and at home. The length of time residents stay is flexible and can be anything from a week to a few months. We will work with you and deliver a high level of professional care to all residents no matter how long they are staying with us.
Palliative or End of Life Care
Ultimately, we all want to end our lives in quiet dignity, free from pain, in a place where we feel at home. The final stages of a person’s life can be a complicated and emotionally overwhelming experience for the family.
We aim to control pain and ease the suffering of our residents, ensuring that we make their lives as fulfilling as possible through to the end. Buckland Care also provides tailored emotional support and practical guidance for families and friends throughout end of life care.
Residential care is for older people who are finding it increasingly difficult to manage at home without additional help and support.
Residents will not only be supported with personal care but our devoted staff will take over all the everyday tasks of laundry, cooking, gardening and housekeeping, allowing the residents more time to relax and enjoy themselves in a comfortable and safe environment.
It is our priority to make everything as seamless as possible in the moving process so that your loved one maintains their independence, dignity and identity at all times. Choosing the right care home for a loved one can be an overwhelming task and we will be there to support you throughout the whole process.
We encourage friends and family to visit as often as they can and everyone is of course invited to come along to the parties and events we regularly hold for the residents.
At Buckland Care we take time to get to know each resident, tailoring the care we provide to suit each individual person.
Our dedicated team is proud of the facilities available to residents, and work hard to ensure they retain as much independence as possible but rest assured, we will be there 24 hours a day should they need us.
Choosing a care home for someone living with dementia is a major decision. You need to be sure that your loved one will be in an understanding, nurturing environment with professionals who have the experience and knowledge to safely care for them.
At all Buckland Care homes that is exactly what we offer. We do everything we can to make our residents feel at ease, with tailored features for those living with dementia. Every carer is trained to care for dementia patients and our homes have been adapted to aid those living with a dementia-related illness.
At Inglefield we have a host of long-standing and dedicated staff, many who have been working at the home for over 10 years. It is this which makes the atmosphere homely and the home run like clockwork.
Charlotte started off studying Health and Social Care with the Open University and caring for a neighbour.
Once her son, Alfie, had started school she started at a care home where she completed her NVQ level 2, 3 & 5 and worked her way up to Deputy Manager. Charlotte was eager to learn more about nursing care which is when she applied for the Deputy role at Inglefield. After over a year in post Charlotte became Acting Manager.
Charlotte has a keen interest in a person-centred approach to care, with the residents involvement within the care planning process to ensure a 'home from home' environment for the residents.
Family time is important to Charlotte and any days off are spent with her family and Lenny the dog.
Deputy Nurse Manager
Jane trained to be a nurse in Tunbridge Wells and moved back to Isle of Wight to work in the local hospital, where she specialised in surgery. She then trained to become a midwife and specialised in normal birth. After studying for her first degree, Jane moved to Southampton University where she worked as a lecturer. She had responsibility for providing teaching across both midwifery and nursing, as well as supervising students' dissertations who were studying at undergraduate and post graduate level. Whilst at Southampton University she obtained her teaching degree, a Master's degree in Health Promotion and finally she was awarded a Doctorate in Education in 2015. Jane returned to the Island to join us in 2018 as deputy nurse manager.
Sophie has worked at Inglefield since 2017, starting as a Healthcare Assistant. However she soon realised her 5 years of studies in Computing were perfect for the role of Administrator. Her caring background means that she enjoys caring for people and building positive relationships with the residents and their families.
Sophie lives locally on the Isle of Wight and when she is not at work she enjoys reading, walking her dog Benji, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.
Support Manager / Trainer
Gaynor has worked at Inglefield for over 30 years, starting as a staff nurse in 1988 and progressing to Home Manager in 1996. She held this post until 2014 when ill health prevented her from continuing in the post full time. However, she is now delighted to have returned to work on a part time basis as part of the management team, supporting Alison in her role. Gaynor assists with managing the staff rotas, training the staff and most recently helping the home to work towards the achievement of the Gold Standards Framework for 'end of life' care, an area she is passionate about. In her spare time, Gaynor loves spending time with her family and she is a proud grandma. She enjoys dog walking, cross stitch, knitting and swimming.
It is appropriate to identify the entire team as delivering first class, professional and extremely compassionate approach to helping my mother.... I cannot express enough the high level of service provided by everyone and this is a testament to the ethos of your organisation.
