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.
Rachel, our activities co-ordinator arranges daily activities for the residents as well as private one-on-one sessions in bedrooms for those who are less mobile.
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.
Alison joined our sister home, Blackwater Mill in 2012 as a carer and progressed to become Care Support Manager in early 2017. When an opportunity opened up at Inglefield for the manager position, we couldn't think of anyone more suitable for the role!
Alison was drawn to the person-centred approach to the care industry and the ability to make a real difference to people’s lives.
Alison is a very dedicated member of staff. She has a particular passion for end of life care and is proud of the service the home provides.
Alison and her husband are foster carers and provide full time support for children between the ages of 5 and 18 years old, at present she has 2 teenage boys. Alison owns a horse and in her spare time enjoys hacks out in the country and visiting local shows.
Rachel joined Inglefield at just 16 as an ancillary helper and achieved her NVQ in Health & Social Care. Previously, she worked in a spa for five years and qualified as a beauty and holistic therapist. She realised her passion for care and returned to Inglefield in 2015. Rachel loves nothing more than organising quizzes, arts and crafts, bingo and card marking with the residents. She also uses her background in beauty to treat the residents to one on one therapy sessions and nail painting. Rachel recently organised a Macmillan coffee morning as a charity event, which was a great success. Rachel lives locally in Freshwater with her husband and two cats, Treacle and Rascal. She enjoys arts and crafts, baking, shopping and going out for dinner at the weekend.
Peter has been working at Inglefield for over 10 years and is dedicated to sourcing the freshest produce for the residents’ meals. Peter previously worked in the pub industry and his interests include his motorbikes and tending to his allotment.
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.
