Types of Care Available
Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust provides nursing care, as well as re-ablement care and GP beds, with a focus on providing the highest possible standards of living and peace of mind for family and friends. Compassion and the constant spirit of empathy are at the heart of everything we do.
Provided for residents with complex health needs and who require the supervision of a fully qualified nurse. Nursing staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are assisted by our highly qualified healthcare support workers who work together with the nursing staff to ensure the very best care and attention is given to all of our residents.
We currently are working with the NHS to provide 6 rehabilitation beds. The people who occupy these beds are usually referred to them from hospital and are in need of rehabilitation or assessment before returning home - if that is the appropriate place of care. The residents are cared for by Holbeach Hospital but supported with Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy teams provided by the NHS
Anne Waltham Unit
The AWU has six short term beds that are funded by the Clinical Commissioning Group and are known as our GP beds. These beds are occupied by people from the community who don't need Hospital admission but need extra care as a result of an acute episode of ill health, pain, wound deterioration etc, before returning home. The beds can also be used for assessment of what level of care a person will need in order to achieve their potential for independence or whether residential care is the only option. We pride ourselves on the level of end of life care we are able to provide throughout Holbeach Hospital but this is also something we can provide for people using the 'GP' beds when end of life is imminent.
Staff at Holbeach Hospital work towards one aim, the wellbeing of our residents. Our care focuses on the principles of dignity, independence, privacy, security and showing respect for the rights of all of our residents. We pride ourselves on providing a home from home environment where there is a family atmosphere.
We like to take our time to get to know our residents and their families and try to help them live their lives to the fullest and achieve the best possible quality of life. When you arrive at our home, our staff will take time to sit down with you and your family and find out about your life and your current needs and wishes. Our staff understand that it is their duty to provide an atmosphere of understanding, gentleness, kindness, calm and reassurance at all times. Our team of nurses, carers, housekeepers, and kitchen staff all work towards providing an atmosphere of kindness, empathy and compassion and we strive to provide a warm and welcoming environment at all times.
Church representatives are also in regular contact with us to provide pastoral care and support.
