Who We Are
Bryher Court Nursing Home is a handsome Edwardian house set in a lovely residential area of St Leonards, Hastings in East Sussex. Privately owned and managed by local people. We are not part of a large, impersonal group of homes. Our Management team have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to taking care of our residents’ needs.
Our Manager is an Registered Nurse, as is the Deputy Manager. They manage a team of Registered Nurses who are on duty and available 24 hours a day. They have collectively helped Bryher Court achieve “GOOD” from the Care Quality Commission in the category of Caring. They in turn supervise our senior carers and nursing carers. It takes a long time to build a good team and we have staff who have been with us for many years and would not dream of working anywhere else.
The management of Bryher Court Nursing Home is committed to delivering the highest possible standards of nursing care to all our residents in a pleasant homely environment covering many conditions and needs. We provide good traditional food along with support and encouragement to maintain independence as long as possible.
Senior Living Services
We are a Nursing Care Home. We are able to help with many aspects of care for the elderly including some dementia care. All our residents are individuals with different needs and we will always assess potential residents to ensure we can meet their particular requirements. Most assessments are carried out by our manager who would be pleased to assist you and answer any questions. Many of our residents come through recommendation either from relatives and friends of our satisfied residents or from caring professionals. Bryher Court has a good reputation and is respected in the community by professional such as Adult Social Care, Doctors, Hospitals, the hospice and others.
Philosophy of Care
We believe that each patient is a unique person, with individual needs and, as such, is entitled to skilled and sensitive care, delivered with compassion, courtesy and understanding. We welcome close involvement of family and friends in our residents’ care. Emotional, social, religious and cultural needs will be respected and promoted. Residents are encouraged to be fully involved in their care, their right to privacy will be respected at all times.
By providing a home from home – not only for our valued clients (the residents) but for their friends and family, we have an ideal setting in which to provide high quality, person centred care. We are aided by the fact that Bryher Court was built as a family home. It has character. It has homely traditional features which our residents are familiar with and enjoy.
Our aim is to make friends and family welcome because we want them to visit and spend time with their loved ones. We want people to feel at ease with us, to like us and to trust us. In that way we can pull together and do our best for our residents.
We will do our utmost to offer kindness and respect to our residents and thus make them feel wanted, important to us and part of our Bryher Court community.
