Autumn is the hardest season. The leaves are all falling, and they’re falling like they’re falling in love with the ground

"It was a beautiful, bright autumn day, with air like cider and a sky so blue you could drown in it."

– Diana Gabaldon

Testimonials

2 months ago
My Mama lived at Jasna Gora for nearly seven years up to November 2020. During that time, she never had a bad word to say about the home and it’s staff. Without exception, the staff at JG were cheerful, kind and compassionate. The chapel and the daily Mass was a lifeline for Mama, who was deeply religious. She felt at home with the Polish language spoken around her, the Polish food and traditions. Although the fabric of the residential home is dated, it felt like home and the care given is outstanding. Me and my sisters were so grateful that our Mama was safe, content and in good hands. Thank you to everyone at JG and the five stars I have given are well deserved. Bóg zapłać!

I would highly recommend this care home. As a health care professional myself, I have visited many care facilities throughout my career, with hand on heart I can honestly say that this is the best care home I have come across. My mother has been a resident for six years and her care has always been excellent. There is great attention to detail, whether this is personal care, dietary/cultural preferences or cleanliness. The care givers are always welcoming and all the residents are always well cared for.

I would like to thank all the staff working at Jasna Gòra for the unfailing kindness and consideration that they showed my mother during her years there. She was very well-cared for. She enjoyed the tasty Polish food that she herself had cooked all her life, she was able to attend daily masses as she had done when living in her own home. Numerous events were held that she could take part in, she was warm and comfortable and the staff were always available when she had a request. All in all, Jasna Gòra was a home from home and we were reassured and grateful to know that she was in good hands. For my part I would thoroughly recommend this home.

About us

Jasna Gora Residential Care Home specialise in the care of the elderly (over 65 years) whose failing physical and mental health (e.g. dementia, depression) means that they can no longer care for themselves. Service users are admitted for permanent residency and for day, respite and convalescence care.

Our Home is small enough to make it possible to create a true family where each resident retains their individuality, and closer relationships are more easily built between the residents, their families/friends and staff. Everyone is encouraged to participate fully in the decisions made to meet changing care needs, quality of life and the environment of the Home.

Our vision is to provide support to people of all faiths and indeed to those with no faith at all, the emphasis is on the care given not on the beliefs of those receiving it.

We aim to promote:
  •  Independence, Choice, Respect, Privacy and Dignity.
  • A place of shelter and protection with food, warmth and water. 
  • Good relationships based on true love through our caring and Christian attitude.
  • A sense of esteem and personal worth. 
  • Social and medical care tailored to each individual’s care need. 
  • Spiritual guidance and counselling.

Our service is a macro partnership in which our residents are a family to which their own families/friends belong and have a voice, as does all our staff that cares for them.  

Consequently, our residents and their families and friends are encouraged to participate as fully as possible in the life of our Home:

  • to make decisions relating to the care provided, 
  • to influence and direct their quality of life, 
  • to be as open as possible about any issues or concerns they may have.

Cuisine 
  
We ensure that residents receive a balanced, nutritional diet which includes fresh fruit and vegetables daily.

Residents are consulted about the kind of dishes they would like and these are catered for, as are special dietary needs (e.g. diabetic, food thickener to facilitate swallowing). 

Meals include: breakfast, mid-morning refreshment, lunch, afternoon tea, supper.   Residents can eat their meals in the dining room, or have their meals served in their room.  

Additional food/drink is provided whenever a resident wishes, day or night.   

Hospitality is our basic principle and residents can invite their families/friends for a meal at the Home whenever they wish.

_______________________________________
Activities 

All activities in our Home are voluntary. They are designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction, and take into account an individual's interests, skills, experiences, personality and medical condition. 

Exercise is an important factor in encouraging mobility. Daily group (and individual) exercise is part of our Home’s routine and organised to be as beneficial and enjoyable as possible.

Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of activities and to keep their own interests and hobbies alive to enhance their quality of life. Care is also taken to engage with residents one-to-one, especially those suffering from dementia and/or depression. 

Residents can go out whenever they wish. If a resident is not able to go on their own and has no family/friends to go with them, arrangements are made for a member of staff to accompany them (staffing levels allowing).

_______________________________________
Worship/ Religious Services

Our Home has its own chapel, and Holy Mass is celebrated and the Rosary recited every day. Attendance is voluntary. The Home also has a chaplain (retired) who lives on site to administer the sacraments and provide individual spiritual guidance. 

Residents are free to attend other denominational services and invite preferred clergy and spiritual leaders to visit them.

_______________________________________
Contact with Family/ Friends and the Community   

Family and friends form an important part of our residential care home family. They can visit their loved one at any time, spend private time with them in their room or visit with them in the communal areas, and participate as much as they like in the life of the Home.  

A resident has the right to refuse to see any visitor. For security and fire safety purposes, all visitors must sign the visitor's book on arrival.

In keeping with our infection control policy, all visitors should wash their hands on entering and leaving the building. Hand wash dispensers are located at the entrance and dotted around the building. Visitors may be refused entry if they are not well (e.g. flu, diarrhoea, etc.) or to avoid infection spreading if present in the home.  

Bedrooms have a BT line socket, and residents can have a private telephone connected to facilitate contact with their family and friends. (Telephone bills are not included in the fees).   

Residents are also encouraged to participate in the life of the local parish/community and/or continue to keep in contact with the community where they lived before coming to the Home.

_______________________________________
Privacy and Dignity 

In keeping with our commitment to person-centred care, the dignity and privacy of residents is respected at all times, and residents are encouraged to be open about their needs and preferences.  

Staff receive appropriate training to raise their awareness of the Home’s requirement to treat all residents with respect, to encourage their independence, to meet their privacy needs and to carry out duties with sensitivity and understanding.

_______________________________________
Consultation   

All aspects of care are agreed in consultation with the service user/their advocate, families and medical and social services professionals.  

We make every effort to seek the views and experiences of our residents and their loved ones in deciding priorities and planning developments in the delivery of our service so that everyone has the opportunity to participate in and contribute to the decision making process.
