About the service

Oxfield Court Nursing Service consists of 4 purpose built bungalows. A combination of highly skilled registered nurses and support staff are provided with specialised training to meet the needs of those who live there. 24 hour care is provided.

Aims and Objectives of the Service

Oxfield Court Nursing Service aims to provide high standards of support for individuals within the service whilst ensuring clients have opportunities to develop their independence. The service provides holistic support and provides quality services in all areas of clients’ lives which encompass the environment in which the clients live, personal care, social and leisure activities, supporting social and family relationships and spirituality.

The service aims to achieve this by:

  • Treating clients with respect and dignity at all times, by utilising St Anne’s and Kirklees Safeguarding Policies.
  • Respecting clients’ confidentiality in all aspects of their lives.
  • Following a person centred approach to ensure clients’ needs, preferences and wishes are at the centre of all support plans. Clients are consulted in all areas of their lives via person centred planning meetings, client meetings and client satisfaction surveys. Oxfield Court aims to make the formats of these accessible for each client.
  • Ensuring clients are provided with informed choices regarding community resources and are supported to access and participate in community life.
  • Staff within the home are well trained and ensure they remain current in their thinking and practice in order to provide an innovative service in line with national and legislative guidance. Staff promote inter-partnership working to achieve this.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.

And this message will be updated regularly
