Riversway accepted onto Teaching Care Homes programme

on . .

Bristol’s Riversway Nursing Home has been accepted onto the industry-leading Teaching Care Homes programme.


Led by Care England, the Teaching Care Homes programme aims to develop a network of homes working to raise the profile of long-term social care as ‘an exciting, rewarding and forward-thinking career choice’ while sharing knowledge and best practice.


Homes accepted onto the programme work to: demonstrate a commitment to person-centred care; become a centre for learning, practice development and research; and create strong working relationships with academic and education providers and become a resource for other care homes.


Mike Lakins, head of learning and development at Springhill Care Group, said: “Teaching Care Homes is a fantastic initiative. As an innovative market leader in the care sector already, this is an exciting opportunity to collaborate further with our partners Dementia UK and the Clinical Commissioning Group.


“Working alongside partners like this on such a prestigious programme will not only strengthen our position but will give our workforce the very best learning opportunities available.”


The programme was started in 2016 with a pilot involving five homes funded by the Department of Health and is now supported by the Burdette Trust for Nursing. Last year a further five homes were selected to participate.


Now, in partnership with the Foundation of Nursing Studies (FoNS) a third round of homes have been welcomed onto the programme, including Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol.


Riversway, part of the Springhill Care Group, is a purpose-built home offering care for people with a wide range of physical needs, including younger people. It also offers a dedicated 17-bedroom suite with trained support staff to care for residents with dementia.


The focus for homes involved in the 2019/20 programme will be collaborating with partners such as acute services, universities and GP practices. Participants will benefit from a support and development programme including workshops, mentorship and on-site support.
