Person-centred care is at the heart of our approach here at Oaklands
We’ve always aimed to do things a little differently at Oaklands Rest Home. Since the beginning, our Southampton care home has had a focus on creating a truly special community for our residents, their family members and our team by rethinking a lot of traditional practices to deliver outstanding person-centred care. Learn more about our approach below.
Innovative person-centred care solutions
We’re continually exploring ways that technology and the power of data can help deliver breakthrough care to residents.
We’re proud to be the first Southampton care home to adopt innovative technology to regularly capture accurate and relevant information to assist with person-centred care. From medication management, to care planning and activity based software, the solutions we use are specifically designed to put individual needs first and give carers more time to spend with residents.
Focusing care on the needs of the individual not just their diagnosis
The person-centred care we deliver starts at the very beginning of a resident’s journey here at Oaklands. When a resident arrives, we sit down with them and close relatives to work out a detailed personalised care plan, which not only sets out the level of care they need, but also their likes and dislikes. It could be as simple as the way they wish to be referred to or when and where they want to eat. We take the time to find out every little detail so their transition is as comfortable as possible.
