Our approach to wellbeing

Our central belief has always been that activities are fundamental to enriching people’s lives. Ensuring that a range of activities are on offer for all interests and abilities has a far-reaching positive effect both on the mind and the body.

With our amazing in-house activity co-ordinators collaborating with the care team seven days a week, we can ensure there is always something that will stimulate each resident, to be inspired and fulfilled. Many of these can be meaningful activities based around everyday living, such as cooking or gardening. They can be dynamic activities such as our yoga and music sessions, indoor bowling and golf. Or they can be more serene centred around art, reading and reminiscence therapy.

Osborne House is designed in such a way that activities are set up in a number of our lounges including the ever-popular conservatory with views over the Severn Estuary. This allows choice based on both individual and collective requests and interests. 

Wellbeing through innovation

Our focus on innovation and technology enables us to push the boundaries of high quality dementia care. We meticulously research every potential innovative addition to the home, to ensure it will enhance the lived experience.

We were one of the first care homes in the country to purchase an interactive magic table (see a video here). A fun care innovation that connects older people on their dementia journey with each other and with their surroundings though infrared technology.

Our newly installed acoustic monitoring system ensures immediate assistance for those in their rooms, and has been proven to reduce the likelihood of falls, helps identify changes in condition, and improves the quality of sleep & daytime wellbeing.

All the care plans and daily records including individual and collective activities as well as medication administration are maintained and updated through our online Care&Clinical system. Our handheld devices allow for instant recording of any actions by the care team, building a 24 hour care record for everyone at Osborne House.

Active lives at Osborne House

We thrive on finding out about the resident's life story, what makes them happy and gives most enjoyment. If there is an activity they want to do, or a place they want to visit, we will do our upmost to make it happen within our capabilities.

We run regular trips in our private minibus to local coffee shops, restaurants as well as the supermarket and garden centres. We appreciate the value of community interaction, so the residents have planned to set up their own regular market stall, selling items made by themselves, and having fun whilst raising money for a good cause.

A relative shares their thoughts

'Osborne House came highly recommended to our family and we were not disappointed when we visited for the first time. We were looking for a ‘Home’ – somewhere that would provide the care needed for our Mum but also involve her in everyday activities to stimulate her and give her variety and a sense of belonging. In essence, this is what Osborne House does so well – it creates a real family environment where each and every person not only cares for the individual but also provides love and friendship. As a family, we know we made the right choice for Mum and we are, and will always be, indebted to the wonderful staff who are the heartbeat of this fantastic Home and love our Mum as their own. Thank you Osborne House!'
