Our Care Centres

Mallard House Neurological Care Centre

Milton Keynes has three units spread over two buildings, with a total of 78 beds. Mallard House is comprised of two units and there is a separate site which is called Bluebirds. The overall remit of Milton Keynes is to provide specialist neurological care to those residents who cannot be supported in more traditional nursing homes due to the level of challenging behaviour and complexity of their neurological conditions which require a multi-disciplinary team to assess and consult swiftly.

 

Oakley Unit

29 beds 

Oakley supports adults with degenerative neurological conditions in mid-late stage, including end of life care.  Residents will present with increased challenging behaviour, complex conditions with mixed health conditions (renal issues, diabetes, COPD etc.). Neuropsychiatry and Neuropsychology input is essential to monitor and adjust treatment plans in a coordinated and responsive way.

Residents presenting conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Alzheimer’s disease

Fronto-temporal dementia/Picks disease

Lewy Body dementia

Vascular dementia (which is more stable with stepwise changes in ability only if further vascular events occur.

Parkinson’s dementia

Acquired brain injury conditions from disease/damage leading to dementia such as Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (over use of neuroleptic medication given for long-term mental health problems), Syphilis, Korsakoffs disease (brain injury due to long term alcohol abuse).

Huntington’s disease.

Traumatic and acquired brain injury where maximal rehabilitation outcome has been achieved but where needs remain high.

 

Brunel Unit

24 beds

Brunel supports adults with degenerative neurological conditions, early to mid-stage. Residents may have early onset conditions affecting adults in their 30’s-50’s, but older adults also reside on Brunel. Residents have complex neurological conditions with mixed health conditions (renal issues, diabetes, COPD etc). Residents will have mild to moderate cognitive impairments leading to lower awareness of risks and care needs. Staff continually asses and anticipate the level of support required, but a percentage of residents have higher levels of independence and functional ability. Brunel also has two independent living flats to aid the transition back to the community.

Residents presenting conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinson’s disease/dementia

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • Fronto-temporal dementia/Picks disease

  • Lewy Body dementia

  • Vascular dementia (which is more stable with stepwise changes in ability only if further vascular events occur.

  • Acquired brain injury conditions from disease/damage leading to dementia such as Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (over use of neuroleptic medication given for long-term mental health problems), Syphilis, Korsakoffs disease (brain injury due to long term alcohol abuse), Huntington’s disease

  • Traumatic and acquired brain injury where maximal rehabilitation outcome has been achieved but where needs remain high.

COVID-19 AND PJ CARE

We are all aware that these are very difficult times and that nearly everyone has been affected in some way by the COVID-19 virus.

Here at PJ Care we are taking every precaution and doing all we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff and their families and loved ones. We have put many new systems in place to ensure the wellbeing of all, including heightened infection control procedures, restrictions on visitors to our buildings and reducing staff movement between Units.

As a result of the inconsistencies in conducting tests and the inability to carry out antibody tests, we have taken the decision to cease all new admissions until the situation is clearer. We have taken this decision to protect our existing residents, all of whom are vulnerable and at high risk should the virus get into one of our buildings.

As with all aspects of the situation this will be reviewed daily by our board and senior management team, who are meeting daily via video conference to review the latest situation and make changes to our processes as required.

We provide our staff team, residents and relatives with daily updates and ensure that everyone is able to keep in touch as much as possible in the circumstances. If you have any concerns or enquiries relating to the current situation, please get in touch on enquiries@pjcare.co.uk.

Staff access into our buildings is strictly controlled, and all other non-essential access is not permitted. Staff and residents are given regular health checks throughout the day to ensure they remain healthy and safe. Safe systems are in place to recruit and train temporary cover for staff who have to self-isolate. Our staffing numbers remain at our usual high levels.

While there are reports of shortages of some equipment and distribution by suppliers is rationed, we are confident that we have sufficient supply to meet the needs of our residents. We continue to do all we can to protect those in our care and the incredible people who look after them every day.

We will provide regular updates via our social media channels and on our website, but should you have any questions about anything we do please get in touch via the contact page on the website www.pjcare.co.uk.

Take care and stay healthy

Neil Russell

Chairman
