Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.

Having recently been rated Good in every single area inspected in our nursing and residential home’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) report, the care we provide was described as “excellent”. Members of the team were praised by the residents and those closest to them as being “kind, patient, friendly and caring.”

The report highlighted the quality of the activities provided at Peel Gardens, especially the joyful atmosphere created while residents took part in activities, with “enjoyment, laugher and banter”.

This summer the team has created the most beautiful, tranquil haven at Peel Gardens. The new sensory garden is filled with plants, flowers and herbs which stimulate the senses. The scent of fresh rosemary and lavender are particularly therapeutic for our residents living with dementia.

The gardens are also a wonderful place for our residents receiving residential and nursing care to relax. With tropical plants, a grand water feature, the sound of birdsong and the occasional squirrel, this area is peaceful and calming. We plan to create our own fruit and veg patch too, with raised beds so the residents can actively get involved, so watch this space! The area is also safely accessible for wheelchairs, so if people prefer to simply enjoy the views rather than rolling up their sleeves that is fine.

Located in an attractive residential area of Colne, our nursing home has a special place in this community. Our residents are welcomed along to the local bowling club at Langroyd Park, where there is specially adapted equipment to enable people with limited mobility who enjoy bowling to take part. Using our minibus staff and residents also like to visit nearby Bluebell Farm, which has views over Pendle Hill and boasts horses, goats, rabbits and pigs.

Further afield there is Lytham St Anne’s. This is a wonderful spot where our residents can enjoy an ice cream while watching the hustle and bustle of the seaside resort, on the Fylde coast of Lancashire.

Welcoming our community friends

Children from the local area are regular visitors to our residential and nursing home. They are part of the Let’s Be Foundation, a group which is designed to inspire young people to do positive things to support their community. They visit every week and do so much with our residents, who simply adore them.

Other popular visitors include some very well behaved therapy dogs, as well as the pets of many of our residents’ friends and family. Our volunteers and work experience students also pop in regularly for a game of dominoes, or to accompany us on walks to the local park. They are part of Sanctuary Care’s wonderful group of more than 600 volunteers, who spend their valuable time in our care homes and residential and nursing homes, supporting the teams to keep our residents engaged with their local communities.

Mealtimes are also a real highlight of the day for our residents, who enjoy wholesome, freshly cooked meals lovingly prepared by Peel Gardens’ very own chef Stacy. Whether a traditional Lancashire hot pot of something more adventurous, if a resident fancies something that isn’t on the menu, Stacy and her team will always oblige.
