Rated ‘Good’ in every single area in the latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) report, we are enormously proud that our residents have such an active role in the running of their care home in Basingstoke, which offers residential care and respite care.
An extract from the CQC report reads: "The staff are very caring and kind, they know how I like things done." Another person told inspectors: "I am very happy here, the staff are wonderful. I get on well with them and they chat with me and share a joke. Some are more like family to me."
Residents in the care home, some of whom live with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, are very much involved in activities. They decided they’d love a Come Dine with Me-style supper club. With the support of the team, this has become a regular event. The residents plan the menu and are supported by staff to buy the ingredients to create a dining experience to remember. The first one was a huge success and the residents all dressed to the nines for what felt like a night out in a restaurant.
Our beautiful Basingstoke care home
Residents in our care home have supported the team to transform the gardens. We invested in some new tools, lightweight wheelbarrows, wheelchair friendly raised planters and with a little elbow grease, during the summer the grounds are now bursting with colour. There’s every flower you can imagine, tomato plants galore and hanging baskets lovingly created by the residents.
Inside the care home itself, there’s so many spaces to relax in, including a bistro-style coffee lounge to enjoy catching up with family and friends.
Some of the bedrooms have their own spacious and beautifully presented private suites off the bedrooms. With en-suite bathrooms, kitchenettes and lounge areas, these are wonderful for enhancing residents’ independence and well-being. They are also perfect if people prefer to spend time with their visiting relatives away from the main communal lounges.
For those who thrive on social stimulation, the team organise cheese and wine evenings at Basingfield Court. These are a lovely activity for the residents to enjoy. The chef prepares platters of fine cheeses and there are a variety of wines to accompany them.
Children from our local schools, as well as Scouts, Beavers, Rainbows and Guides groups in the town have regularly popped into our Basingstoke care home for a game of bingo and to treat their seniors to musical performances.
Basingfield Court has a fantastic relationship with our local Co-op store in Basingstoke, which has donated flowers to the home which we use for flower arranging sessions. The store has recently held a fund-raising event and presented over £400 to our Basingstoke care home.
A Zumba Gold instructor comes to the home every fortnight. High energy and fun, these classes are specially tailored to a senior audience, and the residents absolutely love them!
Pre-bookable respite care at Basingfield Court
As well as residential care and dementia care, if you are looking for local care homes in Basingstoke that offer short stay and longer-term local respite services, then look no further. These are perfect for caregivers in our local community who look after elderly relatives at home and need a carers’ break. They are flexible stays so can be pre-booked in advance, for a couple of weeks or if you prefer, something longer. And with tailored care plans bespoke to your loved one’s needs, you have the peace of mind of knowing we are providing a high standard of person-centred care.
Our 2022 weekly care fees for residential care start from £1,164, but may be in the region of 20% more*, depending on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms to our premium bedroom options.
*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support, your weekly fee could be higher.
