ABOUT US

Place Farm House has existed as a care home since 1992 and is at the heart of the local community with many of its residents having resided in the Patcham area for a number of years. The care home has strong links with various community and church groups and this adds to the connection which the home and its residents have with the local community.

Place Farm House is managed day-to-day by Karen Reid who takes a highly active role in the day-to-day running of Place Farm House and is personally on hand to provide support to the residents and the care staff. Karen joined Place Farm House in 2017 as Deputy Manager where she worked closely with Andy Bown the previous manager and current owner before coming the registered manager. Karen has developed Place Farm’s service to ensure it provides intimate care to our residents and that we have the best staff who are supported and enjoy their work.

The safety of our residents is of the paramount importance during the COVID 19 pandemic and we are continually adapting our policies in light of changing Government Guidelines. We understand that family would like to see their loved one’s whilst in a care home and it is also important for the wellbeing of residents. We closed our doors to all but essential visitors on 11th March 2020, 12 days prior to the national lockdown began and re-opened in July 2020. During the summer of 2020 we allowed visiting in the gardens of Place Farm (social distancing applying) and in October 2020 we introduced a new mobile Perspex glass screen in the front door to allow families and relatives to see one another via appointment slots. This has proved successful to date, even during lockdown’s.

The phrases “technology” and “care home” may seem counter-intuitive but we very much strive to run the home with technology and a “paperless” approach. It not only free’s up time for our staff to spend with the residents but enhances the morale and motivation of our staff who are key to high level of care and commitment needed in a demanding role. We use an online care system which gives our carers the flexibility to provide bespoke care to the residents at their bedside, rather than having to rely on paper care records which are bulky and sometimes poorly maintained.
