The Glen Nursing Home is situated in Baildon, just half a mile away from the famous surroundings of Shipley Glen. The home overlooks the local moors and countryside as well as Salts Mill and the world heritage site of Saltaire. This idyllic setting coupled with the highest standards of care offers residents a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Yes we do, each carer is carefully selected based on their qualifications, references and an enhanced criminal records bureau check. Once this selection process has been successfully completed, a training programme is undertaken until we are completely satisfied with their character and ability. We closely monitor the level and content of training given which ensures uniformity and flexibility. It also allows us to focus on those carers who need extra or specialised training in order to provide a personalised service to our residents.
Yes, we are registered with The Care Quality Commission (CQC) and in our last inspection received a ‘Good’ evaluation.
We have an excellent combination of staff who have been with us for many years coupled with fresh faces; all of whom are highly trained, committed and entirely focused on the needs of our residents. Training and the correct qualifications are at the heart of what we do and we are very proud to provide staff with a selection of qualifications. Our aim is to provide staff who genuinely care.
The accommodation consists of single en-suit rooms tastefully furnished providing comfort and privacy. Each room has a nurse call system, music system and en-suite bathroom with special fittings and permanent lighting for safe access during the night.
We like to welcome visitors at all times and so there are no strict visiting hours. We have a cinema / family room for family or friends to spend time with their loved ones at the nursing home if necessary, and have found this provides residents with extra comfort during difficult times.
We do welcome regular visits from pets, but unfortunately we do not allow pets at this time. This is out of consideration for other residents who could suffer from allergies. Small pets such as birds in residents’ rooms would be subject to agreement with the General Manager.
