- Family and friends remain a crucial part of a resident’s day-to-day life. Staff will go out of their way to ensure a resident connects with family and friends as much as possible. We use a fantastic app called Myo which serves as an interface between relatives and residents. It works in a similar way to WhatsApp where we can post pictures of our residents into a private group with their loved ones and vice versa. It enables relatives and residents to feel connected with each other and share each other’s lives even when they are not physically together. Our Southborough Nursing Home also has facilities available for family or friends to stay overnight – including pets. Residents can usually bring their pet, as well as their own furniture and comforts.
- Our qualified on-site nurse help to take care of any special or complex care requirements needed by residents. We adapt to provide the level of support our residents need, including round-the-clock nursing care if required.
- We are located in Surbiton, which has a rich and diverse history that dates to the Saxon period. Our town’s name goes back many centuries but became the name we know today – Surbiton – in 1592. It started its major development during the Industrial Revolution, greatly increased with the railway’s arrival to the town. The first station was built in 1838.
Today, the station possesses a magnificent Art Deco façade, a popular architectural introduction in the late 1920s and 1930s when much of the expanding underground railway had stations built in the same fashionable style. During the 20th century, Surbiton became a popular commuter town, with many residents travelling to central London for work. Today, we love that Southborough Nursing home is well situated and benefits from excellent transport links – we can take residents from further afield and friends and relatives can visit us easily.
- Resides within a conservation area. Our Southborough Nursing Home is in a quiet location right in the heart of the prestigious Southborough conservation area. It boasts beautiful gardens which residents benefit from (and love) spending time in.
- We have dedicated Dementia Champions who lead our dementia approach. They ensure that we support dementia patients fully and in a manner that meets all their unique requirements. Read all about what dementia care at the Future Care Group involves from our Head of Quality and Compliance and Senior Risk Manager herself.
- We embrace digital health with the implementation of four impressive apps/systems. Nourish is our top-of-the-range care planning system which enables care staff to instant, electronic access to a resident’s care records on their own handheld device. Myo as we mentioned earlier, is an interactive app that enables residents to connect with friends and family. Radar is our quality assurance system that enables us to monitor our residents’ day-to-day experiences such as accidents, activities, and events attended. Lastly, our PainCheck® app allows us to monitor slight pain levels. This is particularly useful for residents living with dementia who may not be able to tell us if they are in pain. This app allows staff to scan a resident’s face with their handset and the app will tune into the micro changes happening in their face which will tell them if they are experiencing pain or discomfort. It is a genius piece of AI.
It’s important to state that while we are pioneers in developing some of the most advanced technologies within our industry to complement our approach to care, a personalised, tailored approach to each one of our residents will always take precedence at Southborough Nursing home and the wider Future Care Group consortium.
