Bloomfield Care Centre in Paulton near Bath

Located near Bath and Bristol, Bloomfield is a purpose-built residential care home providing 24-hour nursing care, dementia care and respite care for frail older people. It is split into five units, including two for people living with dementia. Care at our home is based on detailed assessments and care plans, which cover areas like life history, likes and dislikes, spiritual and religious needs and all aspects of personal daily living needs.

Bloomfield has three Activities Coordinators, who work with residents and staff to ensure that everyone can choose group or one-to-one activities that reflect their interests. Group activities include pottery, gardening, crafts, crosswords, baking and trips out.

The best way to decide about Bloomfield is to come to see it for yourself. We welcome visitors and are happy to be contacted to help with advice where we can.

 

Types of care

The care we provide is of the utmost importance to the whole team; our main concern is that residents feel safe, happy and comfortable at Bloomfield Care Centre. We will consult residents and families when creating care plans, with aims of making our services as person-centred as possible. We will enquire about life before Bloomfield, so that we get a clear picture of who residents are, inside and out. We received a 'Good' rating in our last CQC inspection because the staff at Bloomfield are passionate about care - and it shows!

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Damon Drummond

Senior General Manager

Welcome to Bloomfield's website; my name is Damon and I am the Senior General Manager here.

I started my working career in sales/account management working in different sectors, such as logistics, domestic appliances and IT. I got to a stage in my life where I felt I needed to give back to my community, so I began working for the NHS, supporting people with learning disabilities for just under 6 years, finishing in the post of Support Manager, where I oversaw a team of managers working in over 10 different services.

I started working in care homes in 2014, which is when I first became a Registered Manager, and have worked for Bupa, Gracewell Healthcare and Brighterkind. This came as a direct result of seeing how my own grandmother was not treated with dignity and respect whilst in hospital. I have a strong history of turning homes around, engaging staff teams, initiating change and ensuring the residents live a meaningful life.

I believe in building open and honest relationships with residents, relatives and anyone who visits the home. My door is always open, so please feel free to pop in for a chat or a cup of tea.

Emma Brown

Senior Carer

I first started at Bloomfield in 2005 as a weekend Receptionist. By 2007, I was a Senior Carer. In 2016, I was given an opportunity in a more senior role within a different care company. After 6 months there, I realised that I wanted to be in a more hands-on role, and was lucky enough to be taken on by Bloomfield again. I find working at Bloomfield to be very rewarding, and I am open to new challenges each day.
