Avante Care & Support: Pilgrims View care home in Snodland introduces Nourish care planning technology

Thank you to Avante Care & Support for sharing the following article on their website. We love hearing how Nourish is helping and improving care services across the country!

Pilgrims View residential care home has introduced Nourish, an app-based care management platform that will enable Avante Care & Support to remove paper care plans entirely.

Electronic care planning brings many benefits, including working more efficiently when recording residents’ information and freeing up more time to focus on our residents. Other benefits include creating consistent reporting across the home, less data input duplication, and quicker access to historical resident data. Pilgrims View is a vibrant care home community with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Residents enjoy activities, go on outings, and have plenty of opportunities to socialise with other residents and staff.

At the heart of Pilgrims View’s care delivery ethos is the Eden Alternative approach. In following this framework, we can ensure the overall well-being and excellent care delivery for all our residents. Staff encourage social interaction and work towards eradicating loneliness and boredom. We believe this sets Avante apart from other more process-led care providers.

Jennifer Rafemoyo, Home Manager, said, ‘We have all been so excited for this day to come and the transfer over to the Nourish electronic care planning system. We can now input information at the point of contact, allowing for a more in-depth and “person-centred” assessment of our residents’ personal and practical care needs. In addition, Nourish uses cutting-edge technology and allows us to identify patterns of behaviour and well-being indicators that have otherwise not been identified. We are very much looking forward to working with Nourish and spending more time with our residents’. 

Pilgrims View care home has a wealth of specialised resources to support individuals living with dementia. The introduction of Nourish will allow more community engagement and support more daily activities for our residents, ensuring that every resident has a vibrant and fulfilling life.
