The Care Team
Our care team is lead by the Home Manager who has over twelve years of care management experience. We have a care team led by a number of Senior Carers qualified to QCF levels 2, 3 and 4. We constantly provide training to all our care team in order to enhance every residents quality of care and ensure best practices are used.

We focus on providing a high standard of care at all times and as such we always value any feedback you may have at any time. Families very soon feel comfortable speaking with the Home Manager or a Senior Carer at any time.
We operate a well documented Personal Care Plan system whereby we can asses each individuals needs for various areas including continence, communication, eating and drinking, skin condition, etc. The care team work with families and the residents to ensure that the care provided is in keeping with the resident’s wishes whilst maintaining safe and healthy well being. We also work closely with the local doctors surgery and community nursing team for each residents medical needs.
Applications for Residency
Persons over 65 years of age who because of a physical or mental incapacity requires help with daily living are entitled to apply for a place at Broomfield Residential Care. Application may be made directly by those who are able to fund their care privately. Many applications are likely to be made following an assessment of needs conducted by Social Services. In the latter case it would include an assessment of financial circumstances which will determine the level of any funding to which an individual may be entitled.
The Home Manager will make a careful assessment of the service user's needs and only offer a place if the home and its care team can meet the service user's individual needs. No person will be excluded on the grounds of ethnicity, religion or culture and we will therefore discuss with each applicant how individual and cultural needs can be met. In addition we are always ready to afford you an opportunity to visit the home to enable you to assess our services. Should you have any queries or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Home Manager at any time. Further information including our Statement of Purpose, Terms & Conditions are available on request.
