2018 IS LOOKING VERY EXCITING FOR BROOKDALE
We would like to thank everybody who made 2017 so great! 

 

 

‘2017 has bee a really exciting year for us at Brookdale and I’m looking forward to continuing with our innovation drive and filling every day with excitement. We worked hard to commission our garden lounge, which has implemented the latest in academic research around creating a stimulating environment for our residents using sight, touch, sound and an interactive and immersive environment. This has created a really exciting space for our residents and friends, including Suzie the dog who enjoys running around the cherry blossom tree!

This year sees the launch of our Families Forever group, which is an opportunity for family members of former residents to establish their own social network with our support. We will also be launching our staff Innovation Forum which is centred around empowering our care team to make their own managerial decisions. We have an absolutely packed activities programme developed by both Clare and Tash and really looking forward to seeing Brookdale be a thriving place to live and work. ‘

BROOKDALE CARE HOME CLOSE THE GENERATION
GAP IN AUTUMN
CHALLENGE 

 

 

Brookdale Care Home, a modern purpose built dementia  unit in Bury, have been working with a group of local students from The Challenge, part of the National Citizens Service.
They volunteered to come into Brookdale and do some activities with the residents to help them give back to their community whilst learning valuable life skills.When The Challenge arrived at Brookdale, they were given a tour of the home and a quick insight into Brookdale.

Edith Tucker, Manager of Brookdale Residential Care Home told the students “From working with the residents, you will improve your life skills, develop yourselves and be able to understand how people with dementia communicate” 

The students helped residents with water paintings  and creating pictures of the seaside. They looked through books with the residents, opening up discussions  to stimulate conversation.  

One of the students said “Putting smiles on faces over the past few days has got me thinking about how we impact you and how all it takes is a conversation”. 

At the end of a successful day, the students performed  a small play for the residents which the residents loved.
Brookdale are regional winners of the Care Team of the  Year award in the Great British Care Awards and are ranked in the top ten rated care homes in the North West. The students performed a small play for the residents at  the end of the day, which the residents loved. Both the students and the residents enjoyed spending the day together, talking and getting to know  each other.

PET THERAPY

 

WHO EVER THOUGHT THAT A FOUR-LEGGED BUNDLE OF
SOFT FUR CAN MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER
AND ACTUALLY
HEALTHIER?

 

 

It was amazing to see how well the pet therapy went, so well that we are actually going to get a puppy at Brookdale! Residents loved Suzie so much. Suzie is Edith’s puppy, She is a bijon frise cross.
The impact Suzie has on the residents at Brookdale was amazing, even residents who aren’t usually very mobile got up and went to stroke her, the smiles and love they had for Suzie was heart melting.
Noah’s Art sanctuary have been getting involved with Brookdale and pet therapy plans are in place. Come along to the next pet therapy session and enjoy the impact they have for yourself!

Beth- 
sum up in a few words what it is like working in care at Brookdale-
I don’t really see it as a job, what i do is making someone’s life better and going home knowing the difference i’ve made is amazing, i love it.

Haylee –
What is the best part of the job you do? 
“Interacting with the residents, making them smile and laugh, i learn so much from them and their incrideible stories”

GARDEN ROOM CHAT WITH NEIL& EDITH

 

“The feedback we

design and the changes we have made at
Brookdale  is
overwhelming”

What great stories have you got from recent events?
When Suzie the puppy came
in, Everybody loved it so
much, the benefits of pet
therapy were instantly clear,
the residents completely
changed, people who would
usually sit down and not
move got up to play with Suzie, they were all asking where she was the next day!”

<br>
This year sees the launch of our Families Forever group, which is an opportunity for family members of former residents to establish their own social network with our support. We will also be launching our staff Innovation Forum which is centred around empowering our care team to make their own managerial decisions. We have an absolutely packed activities programme developed by both Clare and Tash and really looking forward to seeing Brookdale be a thriving place to live and work. ‘<br>

Brookdale Care Home, a modern purpose built dementia  unit in Bury, have been working with a group of local students from The Challenge, part of the National Citizens Service.<br>
They volunteered to come into Brookdale and do some activities with the residents to help them give back to their community whilst learning valuable life skills. <br>
<br>
When The Challenge arrived at Brookdale, they were given a tour of the home and a quick insight into Brookdale.  <br>
<br>
<strong>Edith Tucker, Manager of Brookdale Residential Care Home told the students “From working with the residents, you will improve your life skills, develop yourselves and be able to understand how people with dementia communicate” </strong><br>
<br>
<strong>The students helped residents with water paintings  and creating pictures of the seaside. They looked through books with the residents, opening up discussions  to stimulate conversation.  </strong><br>
<br>
<br>
<strong>One of the students said “Putting smiles on faces over the past few days has got me thinking about how we impact you and how all it takes is a conversation”. </strong><br>
<br>
At the end of a successful day, the students performed  a small play for the residents which the residents loved.  <br>
Brookdale are regional winners of the Care Team of the  Year award in the Great British Care Awards and are ranked in the top ten rated care homes in the North West. The students performed a small play for the residents at  the end of the day, which the residents loved. Both the students and the residents enjoyed spending the day together, talking and getting to know  each other.

The impact Suzie has on the residents at Brookdale was amazing, even residents who aren’t usually very mobile got up and went to stroke her, the smiles and love they had for Suzie was heart melting. <br>
Noah’s Art sanctuary have been getting involved with Brookdale and pet therapy plans are in place. Come along to the next pet therapy session and enjoy the impact they have for yourself!  </span></div>
