We are a small family run home that caters for 19 residents in the heart of Rossendale. The home is owned and managed by Melissa O’Rourke
along with her Husband Jason. Melissa is a Registered general nurse and has 22 years experience in the care sector.
There is a Registered nurse on duty 24/7 along with care assistants.
All our meals are freshly made that day on the premises by our cook. Residents choose daily what they would like for Breakfast and evening meal.
We have daily activities and trips out.We have completed the 6 steps end of life care alongside Rossendale Hospice.
We uphold and take an active role in the #Hello my name is campaign, social care commitment, 6 C’s, Dignity in care Charter and Investors in people. All are staff are trained to the highest standard to ensure the very best standard of care is given.
We have a visiting Advanced Nurse practitioner and the use of telemedicine which enables us to have 24hour remote access to a GP via Webcam.
Each resident is assigned a Key worker who works with them and the family to develop a booklet called All About Me so that we can share in their past. We were inspected by CQC using their new approach and received a glowing inspection report that is available here. We are members of both the Lancashire Care association and Registered Nursing Home Association
