Frome Nursing Home, a specialist dementia nursing and residential care provider in the Somerset town of Frome, have been commended by local MP David Warburton for creating their own solution to the care funding crisis.
The group that supports the home, Evolve Care Group, have set up a subsidy fund of £100,000 in order to help local people afford the care they need and deserve.
Home Manager at Frome Nursing Home, Maggie Rhodes, told us “we want to provide love and care to everyone that needs it. Our subsidy fund will allow those currently stuck at home or in hospital to access our specialist services at a cost that they can afford.”
She went on to explain “the team at Frome Nursing Home have implemented a cutting edge new model of person-centred dementia care. This is having an amazing impact on the lives of people living with dementia and we want lots of people to benefit from these advances.”
Frome’s newly re-elected MP, David Warburton, recently met with colleagues from Frome Nursing Home to hear more about their new funding solution and to offer his support. He commented: “the current crisis in funding for social care is an issue that urgently needs addressing and it is brilliant to see that Frome Nursing Home are doing their own bit to help ease the costs of care.”
David is currently planning a visit to the nursing home, located on Styles Hill in Frome. He plans to meet with some of the people living there and see first-hand the fantastic care that is being provided, as well as viewing the newly refurbished residences.
Frome Nursing Home is dedicated to offering care that revolves around the individual and their needs. We offer Dementia Care, Residential and Nursing, Respite Care, Step down placements and End of Life Care.
The Home and support is tailored to every person who lives here. The priority is focusing on small communities and families rather than conventional institutional approaches. The staff at Frome Nursing Home are passionate about offering the best possible care, with many feeling that they have gained many extra grandparents.
The home is set in the heart of the breath-taking Somerset countryside in the picturesque town of Frome.
