The Pastures is a residential care home with nursing.
Three bungalows provide support for up to 13 people with support needs. The support team - including nursing cover - are on duty 24/7, making sure the people we support receive the highest quality of care. Read our leaflet.
This pleasant site offers accommodation over three bungalows - two with four bedrooms,and one with five bedrooms. They offer high quality accommodation with:
- private bedrooms
- accessible bathrooms (baths, showers and mobile hoists)
- well thought out kitchens
- practically laid out spaces - corridors, storage and laundry etc
- tastefully decorated shared areas - laid out so you can enjoy quiet, companionship or participate in activities
- fantastic outdoor spaces - a mix of mature planting, and raised beds, lawn and paving
- mini-bus on site for resident's use
High quality facilities benefit the people we support - but they also make it easier for staff to focus on what matters too - the people we support. The staff team take pride in building the care they provide around choice and preferences as well as needs and requirements.
Consistent care from a consistent, qualified and experienced staff team builds trust, and helps improve health and personal outcomes - changes in condition are more easily spotted, and proactively managed and care is adapted as needs change.
Family and friends visits are actively encouraged - both on and off-site. There are no set 'visiting hours' and there's always something planned!
The Pastures is situated in a beautiful rural setting in the village of Hales, Norfolk, close to picturesque villages and the Norfolk Broads.
It's easy to get around and days out and activities are regularly planned and enjoyed by all.
David is a well-liked, inquisitive character who enjoys being at the heart of what’s going on, whether that is in his home, garden or out in the local area near where he lives. But his complex health needs have in the past meant that he needed to go in and out of hospital up to six times a year – a really disturbing experience for him.
Since moving to FitzRoy’s The Pastures (a registered care home with nursing) two years ago, his health has become more stable. In fact, he’s been to hospital just once in that time. Care professionals - some of whom have known him for many years - and his family have commented on how well he looks now, benefitting from his special nutritional support and skin care.
As the professional nursing team have got to know David the person, his personality and preferences, as well as his care needs, they have been able to spot early signs of change in his medical indicators and his general demeanour. As a result they’ve been able to manage his conditions much more successfully; better for him and also prevent additional expensive health interventions for the funders.
Continuity of care and caring for the person go hand in hand for the staff team at The Pastures. It's easy when you've got people as easy-going as David to support - and it makes a difference not just to how David lives his life, but ultimately to the cost of care too.
The Pastures currently offers two vacancy opportunities:
- two vacancies in one of the bungalows on this purpose-built development
- a rare chance to commission a whole bungalow for four individuals - ideal for an established peer group who could be transitioning from young people's services, returning to the area or are in other circumstances.
