From day-trips to aromatherapy, we want to make sure we are able to provide a range of activities every day to encourage residents to keep active and take part in activities they enjoy.
Our food is sourced largely from local suppliers and cooked in our own kitchen. It’s varied and tasty because it’s home cooking of the highest standard.
A high standard of care is a vital factor in creating an excellent care home. To do this, we get to know each resident's care needs and focus on them being met.
We are very proud of Harwood House because it challenges expectations of what a nursing home has to be. We have set new standards in the way care is delivered and call it Our Grand Design…
It’s our story and we’re very proud of it.
So what is Our Grand Design and what does it mean in practice? Our Grand Design is based on the fact that we’ve invested a substantial amount of thought, time and resources, and as a result have set new standards in the delivery of our service. It’s also based on our belief that there are three vital components in creating excellence in a nursing home. These are:
- the physical environment of the home
- the standard of care the home provides
- the person-centred approach that the home adopts
