Signature at Elstree is a Care Home that caters for Assisted Living, Dementia and respite residents. The home is overseen by our General Manager and a team of Heads of Department who are all experienced and competent within their job roles. In addition to Heads of Department and Carers, we have a dedicated wellness team who competently support with medical professional visits and provide a comprehensive holistic service.
The home has 54 apartments that are dedicated to Assisted Living and 27 apartments in our Dementia Care neighbourhood. The number of Carers on duty will be determined by the residents’ individual needs which are reviewed on a monthly basis.
The care that each resident requires and receives is recorded using person centred technology which assists us in allocating the appropriate level of staffing to each area of the building at the right time of day or night. Residents have reassurance that our call bell system is linked to team member pagers ensuring that we are always there when needed.
Resident care is overseen by Senior Care Assistants and Care Coordinators who also provide guidance to the care teams, ensuring that the service is fully compliant with the regulations.
In addition, we have a dedicated catering team who serve main meals in our restaurants and a housekeeping team who are responsible for the cleanliness of the home including resident apartments. A dedicated activities team are responsible for arranging in-house events and organising excursions using our own minibus. Each home has a reception area which is operated twelve hours a day, ensuring that all visitors receive a warm welcome and are logged in and out of the home.
All Signature staff are trained to meet best practice standards for their respective roles including but not limited to; Care Certificate standards, and all new to social care employees are automatically offered the opportunity to complete their Level 2 Health & Social Care Qualification. At Signature of Elstree we pride ourselves on excellent staff retention and a history of internal staff development and promotion.
