Person-Centred Care

Our care approach is person-centred, which means that Residents are empowered to take an active role in discussions and decisions around their care. We undertake comprehensive risk assessments and develop individualised support plans that are regularly evaluated.

The team here focus on providing Residents the opportunity to lives that are as independent as possible. By working in collaboration with Residents and their loved ones, we hope to enable them to fulfil their wishes and help them feel safe and supported.

At Kingsway House in Durham, Colleagues look at all aspects of Resident wellbeing. We take care of social, emotional and spiritual needs, helping to facilitate Residents’ connections with each other and the community.

By taking a holistic approach to Residents’ wellbeing, we hope to ensure that they are as happy and comfortable as possible. If any Resident requires an appointment for dental, optical, physio, occupational health or any other kind of treatment, we will help facilitate it.

Dining & nutrition

Our nutritious menus always give Residents plenty of choices. By providing Residents with healthy and delicious options, we endeavour to not only satisfy their tastebuds but also look after their health. The chefs make time to find out the foods Residents’ enjoy eating, their favourite dishes and any dietary requirements. With a regular review of menus, Residents are free to let us know which meals they’ve enjoyed and any new dishes they’d like us to include. We work closely with all stakeholders and are approved by the Durham and Darlington local authority team.

Electronic care plans

We always strive to innovate and use technology to enhance our provision of person-centred care. Our Home uses Electronic Care Plans which provide instant and secure access to care details and provide a thorough overview of support and activities. Using technology increases efficiency and enables our Colleagues to spend more meaningful time with Residents and improving the quality of interactions and care and support provided.

A message from our Manager

Kingsway manager

“I’ve been in care home management for over 18 years, and I love my job at Kingsway Care Home. Every day is different, things are continually changing, and we have a mix of Residents to care for, including older people and younger people living with mental health challenges.

My favourite part of the job is helping Residents do the things they’ve always wanted to do, but not been able to achieve before. Whether that’s visiting the local community independently or enrolling in college. It’s exciting to see them gain confidence and know that my team and I make a real difference in people’s lives.”
