Welcome to Bushfield Care Centre
Bushfield Care Centre is a friendly, comfortable residence for individuals who require dedicated care delivered with patience, kindness and understanding.
We aim to provide a high standard of care in a homely relaxed atmosphere. The Aims and Objectives of the nursing home are to provide a professional standard of care and the service within a safe, homely and warm environment.
It is Bushfield Care Centre's purpose to promote the physical, mental and emotional well being of each individual in our care.
Quality of Living is always our highest priority. We believe that freedom of choice, privacy and respect are basic human rights, which age, infirmity and disability do not devalue.
Mission Statement and Objectives
The right of a resident to be left alone and undisturbed whenever they wish.
The understanding of residents needs and treating them with respect.
Allowing a resident to take calculated risks, to make their own decisions and think or act for themselves.
Giving a resident the opportunity to select for themselves from a range of alternative options.
Keeping all basic human rights available to the resident.
Enabling the resident to realise their own aims and helping them to achieve goals in all aspects of daily living.

Short Term Care
Respite/ intermittent care can be of great benefit both to the resident and to their carer and often enable the family to retain their loved one at home as long as possible.
Respite care is offered on a flexible basis for one or two weeks to allow families to go on holidays or even just for a weekend or midweek break.
Also Convalescent Care for those who have been in an acute hospital and required further care before returning home.
Privacy, Comfort and Personal Space
Whilst encouraging residents to become part of a family unit much emphasis will be placed on the specific needs of the individual. Independence, dignity and self-respect are key considerations to optimise the quality of life, with freedom of choice and flexibilty foremost in our aims to enhance the latter years.
Individual wishes should be recognised and not pushed aside because they do not fit in with the pattern of group living. Flexibility is necessary in order to meet the needs of a group of individuals living under one roof.
To provide a safe secure environment a full fire alarm and emergency lighting system is intalled together with required fire doors and exit signs. An inter-com answer call system is in operation in all bedrooms, bathrooms and toilets. This links to the main panel situated in the lounge where there is 24-hour staff coverage. Specific attention will be given to the quality of care provided in such areas as bathing, dressing and feeding.
We aim to operate a professionally managesd business with an ongoing training programme for all the staff. This will ensure the security of all concerned.
We create a homely environment in our dining hall, catering for our residents individual nutritional needs with a balanced diet, freshly prepared daily by our kitchen staff.
