New Care Home Developments, Shared News and Announcements from Eastgate, Nottinghamshire.

Launch of the Eastgate Dementia Strategy

Eastgate Care Ltd is proud to announce the launch of their dementia strategy;


“The 6C’s Approach to dementia care”;


·         Commitment

·         Compassion

·         Competence

·         Communication

·         Courage

·         Care

The values and behaviour’s covered by the 6Cs reinforce the enduring values and beliefs that underpin care wherever it takes place. It gives us an easily understood and consistent way to explain our values as professionals and care staff and to hold ourselves to account for the care and services that we provide. The 6Cs naturally focus on putting the person being cared for at the heart of the care they are given.


The strategy is based on the work and vision of Eastgate Care’s Operations Director, Sharon Di Maio who states:


“The overriding aim is to put our residents wellbeing at the heart of the service we provide and aim to enable people to ‘live well’ with dementia. Eastgate Care will become the first choice for individuals and families seeking high quality dementia care. Our mission is to ensure all our residents living with dementia are enabled to live full lives in an environment that enriches and supports their choices.”



Sharon outlines how;

“We want the culture to permeate all levels, roles and responsibilities within the organisation. The aim is to eliminate a task focussed culture by focusing on the 6C’s principles which is the crux of achieving high standards of care and positive outcomes for the people who use our services”.       




Following the launch of the Eastgate Care Ltd on March 3rd 2016, feedback from the start up attendees has been very positive. Staff from each of the five homes will be undertaking a training programme between April and September 2016.






Operations Director, Sharon Di Maio has worked tirelessly with the groups Practice and Professional Development Facilitator, Fiona McCandles – Sugg, to provide a specialist training programme to equip the staff team with the knowledge and skills to provide a high class service.



Fiona is really excited about the dementia strategy and said,  

‘It feels like I’ve been working towards this time since I first met people with dementia 32 years ago! It was doing a work placement when I was on a pre-nursing course at college that made me change my application to become a RMN (Registered Mental Nurse) We have some incredibly committed staff who will make this strategy a success’

How wonderful to see people working in a care home truly loving their job. This home should be on the news for what a great home looks like. Thank you, I was so impressed and can not wait to visit next month. Friend of resident

Revamp for Christmas at Melbourne House

As well as the usual Christmas decorations, the communal areas at Melbourne House have been made even more cosy and 'user friendly';

 A cloakroom like area has been created where residents can use the hat stand and coiff their hair which is proving popular. A new seating area, for when friends and relatives visit, offers a cosy private area for chatting. New wooden chairs in the dining area, with padded seating, look good too.

Residents have already been enjoying beauty and aromatherapy treatments and a new retro wall is planned for 2016, displaying traditional black and white photographs from residents, relatives and friends.

Activities at Melbourne are driven forward by the enthusiastic coordinator Trayce Pullen - pictured right with residents and visitors at the recent successful card design event, sponsored by the Sherwood Group.

Music is likely to be prevalent on next years activities schedule, recognised as one of the best 'therapies' for older people. City Arts as part of their Imagine Programme, in conjunction with Lakeside Arts will be visiting early in 2016 to coordinate musical events.

Trayce has forged good links with the local college and following students recent voluntary work, they are planning to revisit in the summer. 'It is really rewarding all round when students participate at the home and the older people love it too' said Trayce
