With the aim of inspiring others and changing perceptions of care home nursing, the team at Oakleaf Care have developed a short film with the help of Screen Northants. Screen Northants work in partnership with schools, charities and community organisations, making the film industry accessible to all. To create this film, they worked in partnership with people with learning disabilities, actively engaging them ‘on set’.

Oakleaf Care is a nursing-led service with a full multidisciplinary team that provides neurorehabilitation. Residents with full capacity were very keen to share their positive journeys on camera and a cross section of nursing and care staff were happy to showcase the good practice that takes place within the organisation. The staff involved in sharing their experiences included registered nurses, student nurses, a care support worker and the organisation’s first nurse apprentice.

We hope that the positivity within this short film reaches a wider audience and helps to raise the profile of care homes as a favourable place to work. Alongside attracting prospective staff members, we hope that this video provides reassurance to any viewers with an acquired brain injury, and their family members, that a whole range of health professionals work within this sector who aspire to fully optimise the highest quality care.
