We believe that Brookfield Nursing Home should be a home first and foremost and we try to keep our medical practices in the background so residents can focus on living to their full potential. We are, however, extremely proud of the standard of nursing care provided by our highly experienced nursing team who are on hand 24 hours a day to ensure that the highest standards of care are provided all day, every day. Our nurses have built up close professional relationships with GPs and other medical professionals to ensure a complete multi disciplinary approach.
Our philosophy at Brookfield Nursing Home is to embrace a holistic approach to care, which respects the dignity and worth of each person. We believe in creating an environment that nurtures the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual wellbeing of those in our care. We have a full programme of activities running throughout the week, trips and social occasions and we have our resident hairdresser who visits weekly.
Brookfield Nursing Home have implemented an end of life care programme and all staff have received specialised training and gained experience in giving high quality end of life care via the Six Steps Training Programme for which we are accredited. We aim to provide the appropriate nursing, social and personal care to promote both physical and psychological wellbeing with all residents – and their families – as they approach end of life.
“I would like to thank you for your kind words of sympathy and also for attending the funeral, which we all appreciated. I would also like to thank you and all the staff at Brookfield for the care and great kindness shown to my beloved, during their long illness. At times of great stress and worry I found the kindness and friendship shown to us all was a great personal comfort.”
“We would just like to send you all a very special thank you for the care and assistance you gave to our cousin, she couldn't have been better looked after in heaven.”
“Thank you all for looking after my sister. I know you loved her and loved you so much, she told me that. I appreciate everything you did for her she will be so missed.”
“Dear everyone, a big thank you to you all for making M's birthday such a special one. It was so wonderful to see her in a chair and when she opened her eyes and was obviously aware of the special event it brought tears to our eyes. We think you are all great the way you deal with the people who are so dependent on you, you are all very special.”
“Thank you so much for looking after ****** so well, she really enjoyed her stay with you all and has had wonderful care and has felt safe and enjoyed your company (and the food and sherry).”
“To Matron and all the staff at Brookfield. I would like to say a sincere thank you for the care you have given to my mum in the last 6 years. From the moment she arrived on 19th June 2009 the warmth from everyone shone through. The care has been exemplary and for that we cannot thank you enough.”
“My mother recently passed away at Brookfield. I feel compelled to write to make you aware of the excellent care she received. The whole staff could not have been more kind and caring. They were all so professional in giving my mum dignity, love and the care and attention she needed in the last few months of her life. I feel so lucky that my mum was able to have a place at Brookfield. It is a very special place. I read so much in newspapers about lack of care for the elderly I feel it is very important to redress the balance and make people aware of the wonderful work that people are doing.”
“To all the staff at Brookfield Nursing Home. Thank you for the caring way you looked after my brother you all were both professional and very caring. Thanks again.”
“I am writing on behalf of my family to express our gratitude for the love and care your team showed to our father over the last 7 years. I know in your profession you only meet people you care for when they are old, ill and not really themselves. However you and your staff did come to know Dad and got to learn some of his character traits, and you always treated him as an individual. Thank you for always making my family welcome and for being accommodating with visiting times and requests to take Dad out. Your team of carers have always shown kindness to his family and a lot of affection for Dad. This was very apparent in the last few days, where you helped to make his passing so comfortable and peaceful.”
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you at Brookfield for the care and professionalism with which you and your whole team looked after my mother. I shall always be grateful for the opportunity you gave me to stay with mum for the week prior to her death. I was able to see at first hand just how professional care was needed to look after mum 24 hours of a day. Not only was this care given with great professionalism but I could see it was also given with considerable love and tenderness which could only come from the heart, and not from any amount of training, and for that I will always be grateful.”
“My guests and I very much enjoyed the tea party on Saturday, you all worked very hard to make such an enjoyable occasion.”
“Many thanks for all your gifts, flowers and cards. You gave me such a wonderful birthday. It was such a happy day.”
“We and all our family and friends will be eternally grateful for the care and friendship you gave to ****** towards the end of her life. She was a very caring person herself so would have really appreciated everything you did for her. You made us all feel like she was part of a great big Brookfield family and she had some fun, laughs and trips out (with the odd glass of Prosecco!). Your professionalism, care and understanding gave us great comfort.”
