Steve Winter

Chiswick Nursing Centre offers compassionate care and excellent facilities in a friendly environment

Chatting to Steve Winter, Director of Chiswick Nursing Centre, I hadn’t expected the conversation to turn to Bollywood Wheelchair dancing. ‘Along with the likes of music, art and film nights, it’s been a popular addition to our activity programme,’ he smiles.

The Centre, which is tucked away next to Ravenscourt Park, specialises in long-term residential and short-term respite care, 24-hour dementia and palliative nursing and post-operative rehab and convalescence. The building has five nursing floors (they are called suites), all with a comfortable communal lounge, dining room and space in which to socialise or sit quietly.

Elderly people no longer able to live independently are in the majority. ‘We aim to create a safe, stimulating home with a real family atmosphere,’ says Steve. ‘Our hotel-quality rooms are en-suite, linen and towels are provided and permanent residents are welcome to bring their own furniture and possessions; we have a lovely garden with hens, a hairdressing salon, sensory room, physio gym and we organise trips to coffee shops, the park and the pub.’

The first step for any prospective new arrival (or their family) is to look around. ‘If they are happy, we then assess the level of nursing input required,’ explains Steve. ‘Everyone has a personal care plan: as well as clinical needs, that covers the time they like to get up, if they prefer a cooked or continental breakfast (chefs prepare a choice of fresh meals on site every day), a bath or shower and which group or individual activities they might enjoy.’

All the nurses are qualified to UK standards and the Centre has its own experienced in-house physio and occupational health team, who assist with rehabilitation from strokes and knee and hip replacements, and excellent links with external therapists and consultants.

‘We treat people as individuals,’ says Steve. ‘If you enjoy a glass of wine at lunch, why not have one? Those little touches make such a difference. As far as possible, our residents live in the way that they always have.’
