Residential, Dementia, Respite and Day Care
Since opening in December 2014, Baily House has quickly become known as one of the friendliest care homes in Mansfield. To us that’s very important as everyone here is passionate about caring for people by developing close and lasting relationships with them.
If you come to live with us we want you to feel part of a warm and loving community, where we become your friends as well as your carers. We hope that you will find a visit to Baily House an enjoyable experience and discover what makes living here so special.
Coronavirus update 5th August 2020
We are continually reviewing the government advice daily to ensure we are assessing all risks and taking all appropriate actions. We will work with our families, residents, staff, suppliers and other key stakeholders to minimise the risk.
Since our last update at the beginning of July the government has announced the new guidance for relatives and friends visiting care homes. The good news is that we already had much of this guidance in place. There will be an additional form to complete when visiting. We are also including a questionnaire in this months letter to get your feedback and we would ask that you return it to the home as soon as you are able.
However with the very recent reintroduction of limited lockdowns in more northern towns we will continue to as vigilant for our residents. Therefore we are not changing any of our precautions.
The testing of all care home residents monthly and all care home staff weekly has been delayed due to national problems with the test kits, however we hope this will start very soon as it will enhance the care of our residents.
At the ever changing and uncertain time, we continue to follow government guidelines. The government have begun to ease some of the restrictions which means that from Monday 1st June 2020, there are a limited number of things that we are be able to do that we could not do before, one of these is: We are now able to spend time outdoors, including private gardens and other outdoor spaces, in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines.
This means that at Woodleigh Christian Care Home and Baily House Care Home we are now able to offer periods of time out in the garden and the grounds of both home’s for you to spend time with your loved ones.
However, in order to ensure the safety of yourself, our residents and staff the following, common-sense, rules will apply, please do the following:
- Visits will be scheduled as the visiting areas have to be disinfected between visits, you must vacate when your designated time is up to allow staff to disinfect the area ready for the next visit.
- Hand sanitiser will be provided, please use it before and after the visit
- You should wear a face shield (mask) as we know that the virus is spread by droplets from the lungs.
- You must remain at a 2-metre distance from anyone at all times. unfortunately, at this time, it is not safe to touch your loved one, even wearing gloves and masks or other forms of PPE.
- You should bring your own refreshments as, at present, we cannot offer any items that have been in the care home.
- Avoid meal times.
- If the home is evacuated you should attend the designated evacuation point.
If possible the following will assist us all to stay safe
- Where you are able please bring your own seating, that you have disinfected before and after the visit.
- The majority of our residents are in the ‘high risk’ category and we must protect them as much as practicably possible. Keep well and socially distanced. The less pressure our health services have, the more likely we can get help from GPs, community nurses and the hospitals when we need them. Also this lowers the risks when you visit.
Please do NOT do the following
- Do not turn up unannounced.
- You must not visit the home if you are unwell or have symptoms of coronavirus. The Government state: Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has any of the following:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
- Feeling tired, achy or lethargic
- When visiting the home, you must not enter the home, you will be guided to the designated area by a member of staff.
- If you are shielding please do not visit
- If you have had symptoms or are awaiting COVID test results you must not visit.
- Please avoid bringing young children.
- No visits will be taking place in adverse weather conditions and during hot, sunny days, visits will be limited to 1hr, this is to prevent the risk of sun burn and sun stroke for our residents.
- Both homes reserve the right to instruct anyone not adhering to the measures set out to leave the site.
If you have any questions relating to the virus and how it will impact life at our homes, please speak to the Home Manager.
"We are very impressed with the standard of care and the quality of the accommodation. During the time mum has been in Baily house we have seen nothing but compassion and dignity throughout. Nothing is too much trouble."
Caring for All Your Needs
Baily House is a warm, friendly and caring community that embraces people from all backgrounds. Our experienced and dedicated staff work hard to provide you and your family with a welcoming and supportive environment, where you feel recognised as an individual, with your own personality and wishes, and our care is always delivered with that in mind.
"The building is lovely, clean and always smells so fresh, more like a hotel than a care home! The rooms are good and most important the staff are welcoming and friendly from the manager through to all staff. They are well trained and obviously care for the residents. You are made to feel welcome at anytime when visiting and the routine for the residents is very relaxed and centred round their needs, they are not made to "fit in" to timetables that don't suit them."
"My mother spent two weeks at Baily Home which provided my father with a much needed break from caring for my mother who has Alzheimer's. The care she received was excellent, with beautiful food and surroundings. Lots of activities and entertainment whilst being cared for by lovely staff, where nothing was too much trouble."
Response to Care Quality Inspection Report - September 2019
We were delighted to receive the rating of "outstanding" from the CQC after our inspection on the 23rd July 2019. We were very nervous but also excited to showcase to the inspectors all the hard work of our skilled and caring staff and, as a result, the happy residents who live here.
The inspectors really picked up on our passion, creativity and dedication to all of our residents. Everyone was overwhelmed to receive the highest rating possible -"outstanding"; something only achieved by the top 3% of homes in the country.
We also received some great feedback on how to further improve the service in the future - which we are already working on.
Thank you so much for all the hard work of the staff and friends.
