About Asquith Hall

Asquith Hall is located in Todmorden overlooking the beautiful Centre Vale Park, it was built as a direct response to the need for high quality care in the local area. Asquith Hall is specifically for people with mental health needs and presentations of Dementia. The home is registered for people aged 40 years upwards and specialises in challenging behaviours often associated with complex case management needs. We are a specialist nursing home that provides the very best, personal service to residents.Our philosophy of care is quite simply to provide a quality service with personalised packages of care assuming that no two individuals need the same package and that each resident is unique.The understanding that people with similar needs would live together evolved the creation of two units within the care home.

The ground floor has 25 bedrooms and focuses on long-term care for people with Dementia and complex mental health needs presentations, these residents often pose us with challenges around maintaining safety, independence, decision making and management of behaviour.

The first floor at Asquith Hall is specifically organised to focus on mental disorder, complex needs and challenging behaviour. There are 28 bedrooms all single and individual en-suites / wet room. Where our younger residents are living alongside those that are older but still very challenging.

The philosophy of care is replicated on this floor to provide good quality care and excellent surroundings with skilled interventions.We aim to have zero crisis admissions back to hospital for mental health care which to-date has been achieved. We monitor every stage of care to maintain the dignity of an individual in what can be a long, progressive condition.As part of our philosophy we place great emphasis on maintaining individuals’ skills for as long as possible whilst able, while building care plans focusing on strengths as well as need. After a full assessment residents are facilitated care at the level of need they require. Pre-admission assessments are completed by the Nurse Manager, Janet Thompson, at an agreed time, date and place. She will consider the experiences of the current placement, previous and past carer, professional assessments of needs and take into account the views of the potential resident.

This information together with the Nurse Manager’s experience and professional judgement, helps to determine a profile of risk and highlights the resident’s needs around 15 key areas of care, for example: mental health care, physical care, environmental safety, skills and social needs.
