An introduction from Haviland House's Registered Care Home Manager

"I have worked in social care since the mid-nineties. However, as the Registered Manager of Haviland House, this is the first time that I feel like I really do work in a ‘person-centred’ service. I’m very proud that our team has achieved this. 

"What makes Haviland House special are the connections we make both with our residents, whom we call ‘family members’, and their loved ones. We see ourselves as one family, working together for the wellbeing of those that live with us. 

"We pride ourselves on working with the person, stepping into their world and approaching every individual with unconditional love and respect. Our prime goal is making sure that they feel both physically and emotionally safe, establishing trust. 

"Deciding to move a loved one into a care home is one of the hardest decisions and often means a crisis point has been reached.  One of the greatest pleasures I take from my job is giving people their relationships back – to be the husband, wife, partner, son or daughter instead of their loved one’s carer."

What people have to say about Haviland House

"Haviland House is beautiful, but it wasn’t long before I knew that not only was it a beautiful building - it had the staff to match it. It took mum a very short time to settle in. She went from strength to strength, gaining weight and confidence and forming wonderful relationships with all the staff. It was a joy to watch her transformation. Haviland House is mum’s home and everyone loves her and we love them." Lorraine, daughter of Dora, Haviland House resident

What Haviland House’s staff have to say

"The best thing about my job is knowing that my contribution has made a real difference to the enjoyment of a family member’s day. It’s hugely satisfying to see moments like these and I feel privileged to spend time in the company of an extraordinary generation. It’s hard not to become emotionally invested in their world and to develop close bonds with them and their visitors too." Neil, Dementia Support Worker
