An overview of our team and their roles
Our highly qualified and dementia trained nurses work with the people we support, their families and professionals. The nurses provide them with support, expert guidance and practical solutions. The unique dementia expertise and experience our nurses offer help families and those we support to live more positively with dementia, mental health issues and associated behaviours.
Nurse – Rebekah Theaker
Meet Rebekah, who is the newest of our fantastic nursing team, she has been with us for almost a year.
“I have been a qualified nurse for 4 years; and for the past 3 years, I have worked in elderly care, specifically Dementia care. Nursing was a natural path for me; I grew up hearing my Grandma talk about her job as a Mental Health Nurse. I also have personally experienced Dementia within my own family, so I know how it feels. I moved to Bridge, Burton and Trent Courts in November 2018, looking for a new challenge.
Outside of work, I enjoy reading a good book, completing crochet and cross stitches. I also make sure that I meet up with friends and family at least once a week!”
Our highly qualified nurses are responsible for:
- ensure care plans reflect the clinical nursing care that is needed for the ladies and gentlemen and that is updated monthly or as required.
- administer medication as needed and order and book in drugs.
- liaise with external agencies such as GP and social workers.
- also liaise with families.
- take charge of the shift and make sure that all tasks are complete.
