The National Skills Academy for Social Care is committed to excellent adult social care in England. They are a membership organisation, created by social care employers to transform the quality of: leadership, management, training, development, and commissioning.
They selected just two homes in England which exemplify excellent care to feature in a film which will be shown at the National Care Conference in the autumn - of course, Birtley House was one of those two homes.
The cameraman filmed staff in a training session, residents in Activities, Mrs Coe selling her homemade cards for charity and a discussion between Simon, Karen and Debbie Sorkin from the National Skills Academy - with the house, grounds and sculpture exhibition as a backdrop.
The ITN crew seemed amazed that this vibrant community, in it's glorious surroundings, is actually a care home!
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
