A note from the manager
As the home manager, I aspire to provide a service that goes above and beyond to provide excellence in care to all people that live and work within Cowdray Club. I believe that to achieve great success you must first have the right team that aspire to achieve the same aspirations, values and goals as its leader.
At Cowdray Club we believe everyone has a voice and that should be heard no matter what the circumstances. Whether the individual is independent in their vocal ability or if they require support and guidance; if the resident has capacity or adults with incapacity; we will support you and your family to identify and communicate your wishes.
At Cowdray Club we work as a close nit team and even refer to ourselves as “the Cowdray Club Family”. We aspire to support everyone within our home to achieve the greatest quality of care, to not feel judged and to feel a sense of self-worth, belonging, dedication and trust. The support for person centered outcomes are some of the values we abide by to ensure our clients wishes are respected and that the families/friends equally feel they have the ability to be involved, be heard and are included on this journey.
Transition to care
it is normal for there to be fear and there is trust to be earned over time as this is a new journey for all involved; families question if they are making the right decision looking into 24 hour care and having this level of support. It is my job to assist you, and be your guide, throughout this journey into care. In time, I hope to be that comfort blanket that you feel helps ease those fears and worry.
I aspire to provide the greatest quality of care to all those under the Cowdray Club Umbrella. I want you to know that no matter what role you play in this journey: staff, friends, families, clients, care management, care inspector, stakeholders; myself and my deputy, Lynn Whyte, have your very best interest at heart. We will ensure that you feel well looked after, supported and that your opinion is heard, of value and of worth.
At Cowdray Club our staff team too are the definition of equality, diversity and I as a manger try to ensure that there is always inclusion.
I very much look forward to the opportunity provided to myself and Renaissance Care to assist anyone and everyone in need as best to our ability on the journey we are about to embark on
