Purley View is a 35 bed care home for older people in Croydon. We are able to care for 35 frail and elderly service users who may suffer from dementia and/or may also require palliative care.
Our approach is centred around dignity and choice.
The home has “The Gold Framework Standard” accreditation and is part of an intergrated care pathway, which promotes models of care developed to provide expertise in supporting those who are nearing the end of their lives and their families and relatives.
All of our trained staff and many of the care staff have received training to help them with end of life care, which is delivered in conjunction with St Christopher’s.
As well as therapeutic and nursing care we arrange frequent social events. We understand the importance of a healthy diet and our chef ensures that the menu is varied, nutritious and tailored to individual preference.
We can care for people who are over the age of 65 with local authority, NHS or private funding.
Our Registered Manager Anura Kalubowila has a wealth of nursing experience and has been working in a health and social care environment for over twelve years. He is a general registered nurse and has qualifications in management, palliative care, dementia and Health and Safety.
He has been a registered manager in three different care settings over the last 10 years. He is passionate that our service user’s care is person centred and tailored to their individual needs. His main priority will always be to ensure that the home offers the highest quality of care to every service user and their families.
