Newsome Nursing Home

As one of Huddersfield's longest established and most respected Care Homes Newsome Nursing Home provides the highest standards of personal and nursing care. Newsome Nursing Home opened in 1986 and had provided exceptional standards of care for over 20 years. Situated in a quiet residential area of Huddersfield the Home is well located being close to the town centre, boasting a friendly welcoming environment, attractive gardens and views over the area. 

The Home Manager and staff have established an outstanding reputation for providing quality care and the atmosphere within the home is a fine testimony to their affectionate and skilful approach. Through our people we have been able to achieve our aim of not making Newsome just an excellent Nursing Home, but a Home-from-Home for everyone who moves in. 

As well as providing individual personal care Newsome is renowned for delivering exceptional standards of nursing care, meaning that you can stay at the home, however, your care needs may change. Don't just read what we can do, the best way to find out if Newsome is right for you is to arrange a visit. We would be delighted to discuss how our home can meet your needs and show you what we can offer. The home also has a patio and seating area which residents can enjoy in good weather.

The Home

Originally private houses, Newsome has been carefully converted and extended to create a pleasant, well-equipped home. 

We are committed to making you feel at home by ensuring a warm friendly environment. All of our bedrooms are attractively decorated and the majority of our bedrooms offer single accommodation, however, we are unable to offer a small number of shared rooms for married couples or those who may prefer a companion. We encourage everyone to bring in their own personal belongings such as photographs and ornaments and we will decorate your own room to your preference. 

At mealtimes our Chef prepares delicious home cooked meals, planning these around your own dietary needs and likes. We recognise that mealtimes are an extremely important part of the day. You can choose to take your meals in our dining room, in front of the TV or in your own bedroom- it is your choice. Complementing our dining room we have a choice of well furnished lounges where you can sit and chat, catch up on some TV or listen to music.

We place the utmost importance on the continuity of our residents' quality of life. We want our residents to have every opportunity to keep up with their hobbies and interests -and hopefully develop a few new ones along the way.

Care

Prior to admission you are invited to visit the home, stay for dinner or even overnight. The first few weeks will always be treated as a trial, at the end of which you can make your decision – "is the home right for you?"

At Newsome, we treat everyone as an individual. For this reason we offer several types of stay depending on the level of support you require. Whilst most of the people choose to live permanently at the home, we do have a number of guests who choose to stay with us for shorter periods - respite or day care. Many people find that this gives them a rest from their own home or the opportunity for their main carer to take a short break. As well as providing nursing care we also provide convalescent, post operative and specialist care as well as nursing the terminally ill.

We have a dedicated team of Registered Nurses who are on duty every hour of every day to offer you round the clock nursing care. In addition, our Nurses are well supported by our experienced Health Care team who are committed to meeting your needs.

The care that we offer is entirely focused on the careful evaluation of a resident’s changing needs. We do this through a comprehensive set of assessments which are carried out prior to admission. These assessments allow us to ensure that Newsome can continually meet both our residents’ needs and improve their quality of life.

An individually tailored, detailed plan of how care will be delivered is agreed at the outset and reviewed regularly with the resident, ensuring understanding and inspiring confidence.

The key worker scheme is highly effective, our experience is that carers gain a greater understanding of a specific individual and are thus able to notice deteriorations or improvements in the residents' well being. Better understanding means that care can remain discreet and the level of support adjusted according to need.

Food

We believe mealtimes are the most important part of our day and good food is the greatest pleasure in life. We pay special attention to ensuring that not only are our meals nutritionally balanced but are also delicious and that special dietary requirements are catered for.

Our expert catering team can meet a wide variety of therapeutic and cultural needs, for example:
  • Allergies - residents with food intolerances will be on diets that are complementary to their needs
  • Low weight - residents who are losing weight or have lost weight may have their food fortified or high calorific / high protein diets to be implemented
  • Dementia - those with dementia may require finger foods or soft diets. We would also ensure that residents are assisted during meal times if required
  • Diabetics - require a varied healthy diet rich in fruit, vegetables and starchy carbohydrates but low in sugar and saturated fat
  • Religious diets - require that certain foods be omitted and ingredients be sourced and prepared in a specific way
