Welcome to Water Royd

My name is Catherine Smith and I am the Registered Manager of Water Royd House Nursing Home in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Water Royd House is a purpose-built 62-bedded care home that caters for residential, nursing and residential dementia. I have worked for Maria Mallaband Care Group for 13 years, starting out as a part-time Registered Nurse and have slowly worked up the ranks to become the Manager, a post which I have held for the past 8 years. I have 25 years experience as a Registered Nurse, working within the private sector. I have completed my level 4 in leadership and management and hope to further my academic career.

We have specially designed Dementia Suite at Water Royd which we have named ‘Memory Lane’.  Water Royd House specialises in the delivering of palliative care and I personally give lectures at the local hospice on palliative care within nursing homes. We have just recently opened our ‘Waterfall Café’ where residents can enjoy socialises with friends and family with a coffee and a cake. The café is available for local community groups to use for meetings.

Our aim at Water Royd is to provide a homely atmosphere so that all our residents, families, staff and visitors feel welcome and that we deliver the best most professional care there is.

We were pleased with many of the positive observations the CQC noted in their report, including:

• People and their relatives told us they felt the service was safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.
• Staff had developed positive, caring relationships with people who lived at the home and supported people to express their views so that they were involved in decisions about their care and support.
• Through observations we saw people had their privacy and dignity respected by staff at all times throughout the day.
