What we do

Support Services

Residents have access to a range of both clinical and non-clinical support services. All of our services are in-house which means that we can ensure the highest quality of provision.

Therapies and Activities

Every resident has a personalised health action plan and access to a range of therapies including: neuro-physiotherapy, neuro-occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, neuro-psychiatry and neuro-psychology. Other therapies are sourced in accordance with the requirements of the individual.

We also have dedicated and highly motivated social engagement and activity teams who provide our residents with a variety of therapeutic activities reflecting their personal hobbies and interests.

Where possible residents are encouraged to access the facilities within the local community using public transport or our own vehicles.

Our Daily Activities Centre also allows residents the chance to get out and about and enjoy a range of sensory, relaxing and stimulating activities.

Gardens

All our units have direct level access to an outdoor space and gardens specifically designed to meet the needs of all our residents. Our gardens have non-toxic, sensory-inspired plants to delight the senses with an array of textures and smells, they also have wide pathways making them accessible to wheelchairs and beds ensuring that all our residents have the ability to go outdoors.

Food

Fresh food is something we wholeheartedly believe in at PJ Care because better food means better nutrition and better nutrition aids healing and promotes a healthy body and mind.

Wherever possible we use high quality fresh ingredients, often purchased locally, and all our dishes, cakes and pastries are freshly home-made in our 5* Food Standard Agency accredited kitchens. Our chefs, nutritionists and dieticians work closely with you and your family to formulate menus that take into account personal likes and medical needs, such as allergies. In a care environment, food is a big part of the day, so we want the experience to be pleasurable and happy.

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

Chairman
