OVERVIEW

Rated 'Good' by CQC in August 2019!

A purpose built 60 bed quality care facility which provides Nursing, Residential, Palliative Care and Specialist Dementia Care.

In addition to this we have launched a brand new bespoke unit in June 2017. This unit can accommodate up to 6 residents in individual oversized bedrooms with ample communal areas. We also provide respite care which can provide much needed relief for those caring for a family member at home. Residents enjoy 24 hour care from the friendly skilled staff who strive to meet the needs and wishes of every individual in a person centred manner. Those assessed as having higher dependency requirements have access to nursing care from qualified and experienced Registered Nurses.

All residents benefit from state of the art facilities within a modern build which has been carefully designed to offer a warm and inviting place to live. The reception area is a welcoming environment with staff members sited so there is always someone to greet and assist guests, relatives and residents. There are 3 floors, all offer a main lounge which is a bright open social area where seating is arranged in a manner which encourages interaction. An additional smaller lounge allows opportunity for gatherings, small functions, quiet time, and one-to-one activities. The dining area focuses on quality home cooked food which is prepared freshly on site by our chef and provides another prospect for socialisation and positive interaction.

This home provides high-standard accommodation, which offers an aesthetically pleasing and above all comfortable environment. Residents are encouraged to bring their personal items with them to make them feel at home from the outset. Social interaction and useful occupation plays a large part of the day to day life at Drovers Call.

In the time she has been at Drovers, the Manager and her care team have given her care, love and dignity, cared for her every need now she has become bedbound. They treat her with the utmost respect, giving us, her family peace of mind. A very well run care home and brilliant care team."

"I have just moved my father from a care home in Driffield into the Drovers Call at Gainsborough. In the short time that my father has been at the Drovers, he has been shown nothing but kindness and care. I feel that he will continue to enjoy his time spent at the Drovers, for he is well fed and cared for, and is kept entertained throughout the day should he require to join in. Well done The Drovers."

The meals are good & nourishing, the residents are well cared for. The staff, no matter how busy, are excellent, nothing too much trouble.

TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES
12 th MARCH 2020
REF: COVID – 19: RESPONSE MEASURES AND MANAGEMENT PLAN


It is with regret that I am writing to you to confirm that we have closed all our homes to non-
essential visitors. This is with immediate effect, 12 March 2020.

Essential health service and emergency personnel will still enter our home, as will appropriate new
admissions as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our county health services, and of
course offering care to those who urgently need it.

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, it follows detailed analysis of all current information
and advice available from the government, health authorities and other relevant sources.

Our priority has to be to protect the health and wellbeing of all our residents. They represent some of
the most vulnerable in our healthcare system, and as such are at the highest risk from this dangerous
virus. We must do all we can to minimise that risk and to protect them, we felt we had no choice but
to take this decision.

I am genuinely sorry for any inconvenience or distress this might cause, but I am sure you understand
that perhaps a relatively small sacrifice now might go a long way to averting a far bigger one in days
and weeks to come.

If there is a situation that requires a non-routine visit, we would ask that you discuss this with the
Registered Manager of the home to ensure that the appropriate precautionary measures are taken to
limit any potential risk.

In addition, we are limiting visits overall, and visits from the local community and external
entertainment are cancelled for the foreseeable future. Our staff will do all they can to ensure that life
in our services remains as comfortable and sociable as possible. We will still ensure that vital medical
visits are made and will be sure that only visitors who are not displaying symptoms come in, and that
they wash their hands on entering.

We are able to offer various options to assist you to stay in touch, including ‘phones to the bedside
and even ‘face time’ and skype calls. Let us know if we can help in any way to facilitate these
facilities for you. We will also post updates regarding both incident management progress, and
resident activity and wellbeing across all our social media platforms, keep a good eye there as well!

We remain dedicated to ensuring and protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents and
team, of friends and families, I know you are too. Thank you for your consistent support it is
hugely appreciated and valued.

Yours Sincerely
Adam Knights,
Managing Director
