Countryview is a family owned and family orientated nursing home located in the beautiful village of Warkton, Northamptonshire. Comfort and care are at the heart of everything we do. You and your loved ones are assured a life enriching care experience that is completely tailored to suit your specific needs.
Committed to delivering tailored care plans
Your care and safety are our priority and our team of qualified nurses and carers take the time to build personal relationships and deliver tailored, individual care plans. We are able to provide long and short-term care for 29 residents, including respite and palliative. Guided by the five Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards, every aspect of our home and the care we provide focuses on the things that really matter:
- Safe from avoidable harm and unnecessary distress
- Caring staff who show compassion, kindness, dignity and respect
- Responsive care that is tailored to meet individual needs
- Effective and care experiences that helps maintain quality of life
- Well-led to ensure high-quality care and development opportunities
Moving into a care home can feel daunting, which is why we make it feel like home from home. With comfortable rooms and a wide choice of communal areas both inside and out, long and short term care residents are assured the extra help they need to maintain their dignity and quality of daily life. We also welcome residents affected by the unique complexities of dementia. Our team offer the patience and empathy required to ensure life remains comfortable and fulfilling.
Every now and again we all need some time for ourselves and we can help make it happen. Whether it’s covering a two-week holiday or a family emergency, we’re ready to be a second family for a short while. We’ll quickly understand and shape care plans for a seamless move and comfortable stay.
For residents with life-limiting illnesses, we will help manage their pain and symptoms to keep them as comfortable as possible. Our care moves beyond medication and involves any psychological, social and spiritual support that is needed.
Comfort and care are everyone’s priority at Countryview, from our carers to our chef. Our fully qualified nursing staff are always on hand to provide specialist care, whilst our health care assistants are there to see to residents’ everyday needs. Our permanent team means that strong and consistent care relationships can form.
A life enriching care experience
If it’s important to you, then it’s important to us. We understand that quality of life means different things to different people and we make it our mission to understand how we can create a sense of general wellbeing for everyone. Our beautiful home, fantastic team and quality care all play a part in creating a warm and homely environment where everyone feels safe, comfortable and content.
Living in a homely environment with beautiful surroundings plays a huge part in how you feel, and Countryview delivers on both counts. Set in two acres of accessible manicured gardens and located on the edge of the Duke of Buccleuch’s Boughton Estate overlooking the Ise Valley, the home is conveniently located a short distance from Kettering town with excellent local amenities. Residents and visitors spend many a pleasant hour sat enjoying the magnificent views across open countryside.
In the community
Our role in the local community is very important to us, from being recognised as a good employer through to sourcing food locally, sponsoring local sports teams and hosting an annual garden party open to the wider community. These aren’t just words either as proven by our tasty home cooked food which consistently, year-on-year, achieves a 5* Food Standards Agency Rating, and our Silver Investors in People accreditation, which helps ensure we attract the best nursing and healthcare talent.
Like in most families, there’s always something going on at Countryview. Residents can enjoy a wide range of activities to suit their interests and abilities, as one-to-one sessions and in groups, all designed to achieve the mental and physical stimulation needed to live the best life they can. Equally, there’s the space and opportunity to relax in peace and quiet if that’s what’s best.
We have our own fantastic activities team who work with residents and carers to understand and organise the right activities, from flower arranging and quizzes to musical performances and movies with popcorn. Take a look at a typical week of events at Countryview.
Feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to overall health and we take care of the mind and body. At your request we can organise a range of supporting services including hairdressing, chiropody and holistic therapies, all co-ordinated by our own activities team.
Good food is good for the soul and we are proud of the delicious homecooked food served everyday by our chef and catering staff. Menus are designed with a balanced diet in mind, prepared with fresh vegetables, meat and fish, all locally sourced where possible. Special diets are willingly catered for.
For many, faith is what gives life meaning and we recognise the importance of fulfilling these spiritual needs as a source of comfort. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your spiritual care and will do all we can to ensure your requests are met.
Here to support you
When we say, ‘comfort and care for all’ we really do mean ‘all’. Moving into a nursing home affects everyone and we are always on hand to provide the support and guidance needed. Whether you’re confused about funding options or want to plan a surprise for your loved one using our visiting facilities, we’ll work through the ups and downs together.
If you’re feeling confused or concerned about funding, don’t worry, you are not alone. We’re here to help you navigate the various payment and funding options available to you. This includes understanding Local Authority and NHS Continuing Healthcare support.
Family and friends
Often the best form of medicine, we wholeheartedly believe that friends and family are essential to the wellbeing of our residents. And sometimes, it’s the friends and family that need our support for themselves, and that’s fine too. Whatever the concern, need or celebration we’re always ready to listen.
