Manor Park Care Home

Family-run Manor Park Care Home in Ellenborough Park North has been recognised as a ‘butterfly care home’ by the Dementia Care Matters programme.

The 12-month scheme aims to change the culture of care homes by putting the patient at the heart of the care they provide.

Manor Park is the first care home in North Somerset to have completed the scheme, and has gone up from being a level six home to a level two home.

Staff have received additional training and the home has undergone a refurbishment.

The revamp has included rooms being given certain themes, such as the Grand Pier room and the sensory room.

The project was funded by North Somerset Council.

Nurse Lauren Allen told the Mercury: “It has been absolutely brilliant. It has been 12 months of really hard work.

“The key difference is the environment for the people who live here and their quality of life.

“It has enhanced their well-being and their relatives say it is just like home. It has gone from being a nursing home to being their home.

“We have been able to reduce their medication, and the more challenging behaviour has been reduced.
