The Household Model - a key element of our Service Philosophy

b

A new outlook in delivering service and care in the UK

The Household Model approach to care is both modern and non institutional and is a new outlook in delivering service and care in the UK.

It is shaped by our core principles and desired behaviours contained within our philosophy. Our goal is to create an environment which becomes a community.

A space which residents recognise and feel at home. Personal choice, natural rhythms of the day, and meaningful life underpin the model. We seek to ensure all residents enjoy well-being.

The Household Model gives residents back their purpose, their genuine sense of self, and a chance to continue with their daily hobbies, habits, and interests which provide them with joy and independence.

Meet the team

Under the caring and professional stewardship of Registered Manager Maggie Dance, the dedicated staff team at Blossom Fields are devoted to delivering exceptional standards of personalised care around the clock, seven days a week. From nurses and carers to kitchen, support and administrative staff, all are aligned with our absolute commitment to compassionate care.

Maggie Dance

Registered Manager

Maggie joined the care profession in 1997 after having her first child. Having worked previously with horses and in a shoe factory, it was a big career change, but she’s never looked back. Loyal and passionate about caring for others, especially those nearing the latter stages of their lives, she’s committed to helping residents feel completely at home at Blossom Fields through kind and compassionate care. A highlight of her career to date was meeting William and Kate during their tour of the UK to thank carers who had worked through the Covid pandemic.

Jude

Deputy Manager

Starting her career in care 30 years ago, Jude is dedicated to promoting people’s independence and helping them to live their best life. She moved into elderly care from hospital work as she wanted to get to know the people she cared for better - and to be a part of their life journey. People’s needs vary – whether it’s lending a hand or providing a lot of assistance, Jude is committed to doing everything she can to help residents, to understand their wants and needs, and to form a strong bond through caring. From acts as simple as making a resident their favourite drink to helping a family through a bereavement, she’s passionate about her work and proud that so many residents and families speak so warmly about the feeling of “home” they experience at Blossom Fields.

He joined Blossom Fields in 2016, since when he has worked his way up to the position of clinical lead.

Catherine Crawshaw

Regional Resident Liaison Manager – Western Region

Catherine has worked in sales and marketing her whole career, after graduating with a degree in Textile Management she worked in Corporate Workwear for many years. Catherine’s first role in the care sector was working with a disability charity that ran nursing homes and enablement projects for young adults. While her two children were younger, she joined her husband in his estate agency, but was delighted to return to the care sector in 2020 and now cannot imagine doing anything else.

Catherine’s role with Allegra is to support residents and their families as they explore care options. Working with the teams in the individual homes she ensures that during every stage from initial enquiry through to moving in with us every question is answered, and we offer the reassurance needed for the next chapter in our resident’s life. It is important for our residents to remain part of the community in which will have lived for years, often all their lives, so the other part of this role is connecting with local community groups, charities and organisations. Catherine has said that working for Allegra with their groundbreaking household model means we are offering a home with compassion and care whilst ensuring residents are retaining their independence and quality of life.

Out of work Catherine enjoys baking, gardening and walking the family Labrador. The children are older now, but still keep her busy!

Individual care, professional care

Our flexible short- and long-term packages provide for all aspects of convalescent, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care. Our holistic approach encompasses residents’ physical and mental health needs, along with their emotional, spiritual and cultural beliefs

Mum was admitted to Blossom Fields, Winterbourne in December 2023 following a couple of falls and hospital stays. Her lack of mobility meant that the staff had to take care of everything from hygiene to feeding.
Her room was clean, warm and comfortable. The attention she received from all staff was incredible. They were caring and considerate of both Mum's needs and the family.
She was kept immaculately clean and nothing was beyond their remit. The manager(s) were always on hand without appointment with caring and sound advice each time we spoke. They always stopped what they were doing to take time out for me and my family.
