“Communication absolutely has been one of the best benefits of Cura!"
Nestled in picturesque Inverbervie, a small town on the north-east coast of Scotland, south of Stonehaven, Castle Lodge has become a trusted home and is committed to providing exceptional care in a tranquil setting
Castle Lodge offers a unique care experience focusing on a relatively small number of residents, providing care for a maximum of twenty-one individuals. They are continually striving to provide the highest level of care for people with complex care needs. Link to Castle Lodge website.
In a recent interview with Diane Boyd, manager of Castle Lodge, she discusses how Cura transformed their management of complex care and how it empowered every care giver to provide a precise, person-centred approach to meet each resident's individual needs.
“At Castle Lodge, we have a variety of residents with complex needs, especially those that have advanced dementia. We use Cura to record stress and distress reactions on the pain charts, thereby helping us find triggers and management strategies to help reduce the stress level.”
Cura helps Castle Lodge to:
- Improve time management by enabling care givers recording of vital information at the point of care, freeing them from tedious paperwork. Their record keeping is now much more accurate and detailed than it was previously.
- Improve the accuracy & availability of records, guarding against potential errors, duplications and loss of records. They can easily recall conversations with residents and identify any potential problems early on.
- Improve communications between staff and care givers by encouraging them to read and refer to handbook notes, resident history and other background information, at any time.
Overall, Diane is very pleased with the benefits Cura has brought to Castle Lodge. With improved time management, accuracy, and communication, Cura empowers care givers to excel in their roles and ultimately provide the best possible care in a timely and efficient manner.
As Castle Lodge continues to embrace technology, Diane and her team look forward to even more remarkable future developments with Cura.
