We create a person-centered care plan for every individual resident, which means that their specific needs are identified and a tailor-made plan is put in place to help meet these needs. The carers are all conversant with each resident’s needs, creating a wholesome care package and allowing resident’s families to know that they are well looked after.
Every week we have a full program of activities with all of the staff involved, which provides well needed exercise and entertainment. Digby Manor is a home from home with a devoted and committed workforce, who are all full-time permanent carers and who having a longstanding history with us. This means that they know all the residents intimately, including their likes and dislikes as well as their past histories. It also means that our residents see the same faces every day, which is one of the most important aspects to consider in a care setting.
The fact that many of Digby Manors team members have been with us for over 10 years is testimony to our unerring support for them – and to the extent to which they enjoy their work, including our devoted catering staff who plan each meal carefully to ensure that our residents get the most nutritious and balanced plates of food and ones they will thoroughly enjoy.
We have a fantastic catering staff who tailor the menu the needs of the residents, whilst making sure that all of the food is prepared on site and comprises of fresh local produce, ensuring that the meals are both nutritious and wholesome. We cater for all dietary needs, taking into account religious and cultural backgrounds. The residents are given beautiful fresh cakes every day with their afternoon tea and we have thought long and hard about what our residents like to eat and how they like meals to be served.
