Philosophy of Care

It is the objective of Bankfield House Care Home to provide care to all Residents to a standard of excellence which embraces fundamental principles of good care practice and that this may be witnessed and evaluated through the practice, conduct and governance of quality care in the home. To ensure that the care service is delivered flexibly, attentively and in a non-discriminatory fashion while respecting each Residents right to independence, privacy, dignity, fulfillment and the rights to make informed choices and to take risks. To ensure that each Residents’ needs and values are respected in matters of religion, culture, race or ethnic origin, sexuality and sexual orientation, political affiliation, marital status, parenthood and disabilities or impairments. Once monthly, the Residents Care Plan is reviewed and any changes implemented.  Residents’ are encouraged to participate in the Care Planning process.

We help people to live Enjoyable, Stimulating and Fulfilling Lives


We know that providing excellent care can make a huge difference to people with dementia. We provide a comfortable and secure environment that is stimulating and preserves and enhances residents life skills. We do this through reminiscence. By triggering and exploring memories of the past we build self-confidence and most importantly we aim to keep residents engaged and communicating.

We offer support and a community for people who want to have their every need met

Advancing years

We are a privately run care home designed for people who like the intimacy and homely feel of a smaller care home with a relaxed, safe and comfortable family environment. We encourage personal choice with stimulation and freedom to live one’s life as far as the individual’s physical ability and needs determine. Such needs may be medical, therapeutic, cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social. We provide high dependency residential care for the advancing years from 65 years young and beyond.

Physical Disability

All our staff within the home are appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standards of care. A continuous staff training program is implemented to ensure that these standards are maintained. Staff will be responsive to the individual needs of the residents and will provide the appropriate degree of care to assure the highest possible quality of life within the home.

We ensure a safe, caring, responsive and effective provision to those who entrust us with their lives.

Sensory Impairment

The most common forms of sensory impairment involve the loss of sight and hearing, often related to the effects of old age. This can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration, which can in-turn result in further health problems such as anxiety and depression. Our carers are familiar with the issues caused by a loss of a sense and understand the benefits of a considered approach to care planning and delivery.
