Cherry Tree House

Cherry Tree House, Clowne

Cherry tree house is, first and foremost, a home to all our residents.

We provide nursing and residential care for people experiencing a mental health illness, brain injury and neurological illness. We also provide specialist bariatric care.

All admissions are assessed to ensure that, not only do we have the skills to support, but also as to whether or not the potential resident is likely to thrive within the current community/resident mix.

We actively involve family and friends in our care planning, this ensures person centred care remains a key focus.

Visitors are welcome any time and you can enjoy sharing in our freshly cooked meals or join in with the planned activities.

The Management

Sue Robson – Registered Manager
I have 20 years experience working with a range of client groups to include learning disability, older adults, physical disabilities, children and mental illness. My work in day care included supporting people with brain injury.

In addition to my paid roles, I have carried out voluntary work promoting and enabling independent living for people experiencing
both physical and learning disabilities.

I have worked for Derbyshire County Council since September 1998, during this time I have gained experience and knowledge through working in different roles and attaining formal
qualifications. Progressing from care assistant to relief manager in a range of council homes across North Derbyshire.

I believe in the importance of encouraging dignity and respect in a caring and friendly environment. I am driven in creating a service that promotes inclusion; whether in social activities, the local community or in day to day living.

Glen Robson – Clinical Lead
I have a broad range of skills and experiences including both care and hospitality industries.

My time as a registered mental health nurse has seen me working with various client groups in a range of settings; including learning disability, forensics, older adults (with both organic and functional diagnoses) and personality disorders. The time I spent as a charge nurse, working for the NHS, included training learning disability and older adult’s workforce to prevent and manage violence and aggression. In addition my nursing and management
qualifications have enabled me to take on the role of registered manager for an older adults residential home with Derbyshire County Council.

I am a trained chef and have experience of training and managing hospital domestic and porter staff. I am an advocate for person-centred care and impress on others the need for flexibility in the service we provide.

Medicare - Nursecall+

The new Nursecall+ range for care homes provides the very latest technology for the care industry. Medicare’s iButton, offers staff attendance and identification. Medicare provides the perfect nurse call system giving both staff and resident’s convenience and peace of mind.

All enclosures and labels are embedded with anti-microbial additives to help maintain infection control standards.

Used in the Nursing and Residential environment, this powerful reporting tool supplies accurate call data analysis providing evidential reports. This gives the capability to monitor trends providing data to assist with compliance reports for inspections. This allows accountability and transparency through integrated nurse call data.
