A Memory in Each Moment

Emotionally Led Support

Our journey

We took a step back to reevaluate how we approached care

We took a step back to evaluate what we did and recognised that our priority is to ensure that our family members live well and have the chance to celebrate all of life’s moments while still receiving the physical and nursing support they need. We see Landermeads as a family in which we live and work together looking after each other daily.

We identified some core principles that are part of everything we do here at Landermeads

Each family member comes to us with a wealth of experience and history which is an integral part of the person they are today. We spend time finding out about this and using it to shape the things we do each day.

Finally, we decided to adopt the Kitwood Flower Approach

We believe that emotional wellbeing is a direct result of how we support our family members and we use the 6 elements identified by Tom Kitwood in everything we do.

Goodman House has had its first CQC inspection and we are over the moon to announce we have been awarded ‘Outstanding’. It is extremely rare for a new service to achieve this at its first inspection and the report had to go through a stringent process including 7 separate panels to get this. Goodman House joins the top 4% of homes in the UK which have an Outstanding rating. To say we are delighted would be an understatement. Goodman House was a dream only three years ago—to have now achieved the highest rating possible with CQC is testament to the hard work put in by Kate, Carrie and the team at Goodman House. We are thrilled to say this now means all three of our registrations, Landermeads, Catherine Tam and Goodman House have the highest possible rating with CQC.

COVID Diaries - 2020

2020 has been a tough one for us all and at Landermeads it has been no exception. There have been times in the last year that we have felt afraid, challenged, devastated and tired. We were not spared and we have lost some of our family members at Landermeads before they were ready to go. We filmed these diaries to give staff the chance to voice how they felt.

Despite the tears what shines through is the passion and determination to put our family members at Landermeads first – they are truly a part of our family and the recurrent message is that we would do it all again. Part 4 is full of this heartfelt commitment.

A Christmas To Remember 2020

After a difficult year now is the time to celebrate the wonderful people we support and the incredible staff we work alongside. Follow this link to join us in celebrating social care across Nottingham. You will recognize familiar faces as staff from all areas have sent us snippets including many from the most important participants – those we support.

We have worked with Big Ian Donaghy to bring you A Christmas to Remember and, I think you’ll agree, he has definitely done us proud. Thank you Ian!

Happy Christmas!!

Nursing in Social Care

We believe that nursing in social care is a fantastic opportunity and a rewarding career. Landermeads and Wren Hall produced this Health Education England funded film to promote this nationally.

At Landermeads we believe that there is potential in our staff and encourage career progression through the ranks – we currently have 5 qualified Nursing Associates, a further 4 about to qualify in January and four just starting their training. They have become an integral part of our nursing team and work under the supervision of our excellent nursing team.

"We Are Family"

Showcases the value of Dementia Care Matters 'Feelings Matter Most' philosophy for people living with dementia, which recognises that people living with dementia are more 'feeling beings' than 'thinking beings'.

Filmed here at Landermeads, the film shows how the Butterfly household Model of Care identifies that quality dementia care is all about the beauty of the moment and sharing and celebrating life.
