Meet our nursing team

Based at Jubilee House in Cumbria, our dedicated nursing team provides round-the-clock care, compassion and support to beneficiaries.

Round-the-clock care

Nursing Services Lead, Kath Savage and her dedicated nursing team support beneficiaries 24 hours a day, seven days a week at Jubilee House. The team supports clients with a range of conditions, from those who have had strokes, have multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease, or who have suffered traumatic injuries. Their aim is to allow their clients to take part in activities, giving them the independence to do so without worry. Their service is underpinned by kindness and compassion.

What can we help you with?

The wellbeing of our beneficiaries lies at the heart of all that we do. It’s our role to provide you with the care you need in order to actively participate in your personalised programme of support. We therefore work in partnership with you to ensure that we fully understand your needs and are able to support you in a way that allows you to get the most out of your time with us. The nursing team works closely with physiotherapists, exercise therapists, psychological therapists and welfare team to ensure that we can take full account of your mental, physical and social needs while you’re with us, as well as once you return home.

'Outstanding' service

Our Nursing Team received an ‘outstanding’ rating in the latest inspection from the Care Quality Commission at its latest inspection last autumn. An inspector from the independent regulator of health and social care visited Jubilee House in June to assess the team. And she was delighted with what she saw, praising the 'full commitment’ of ‘kind, considerate and empathetic’ staff in providing a 'person-centred service.'

“People who stayed here received extremely high-quality, personalised support from an exceptionally well-led service,” the inspector writes in her report. “People said the service was ‘life changing’ and ‘amazing’ in successfully helping them to learn skills to manage their conditions, as well as enjoying a very fulfilling and sociable short break. The service was exceptional at helping people achieve positive outcomes and building confidence and independence.”

Cathy's story

Cheshire firefighter's wife Cathy was just 53 when she had a stroke while at the wheel and life changed in a matter of seconds. Now she has become a familiar face at Jubilee House, somewhere that she says has brought her out of her shell when her confidence was all but lost. "Coming here," she says, "you don't feel so alone."

We think our Nursing Team is pretty special, but don't take our word for it. You can hear from some of the people who have spent time under the care of the team here.
