Originally a large family home on the outskirts of Weyhill, Millway House started life in the 1980s as a residential home for people over the age of 65. Following an extension to our premises in 2008, we established ourselves as a high-quality nursing home – with the old house still playing a major part in ensuring that Millway House retains the feel of a family home, where everyone is welcome.
Situated at the heart of the local community, we make it our goal to ensure residents to maintain their connection with the community and get the most out of our life.
In order to help our residents to stay as active and independent for as long as possible, we work tirelessly with them and their families to achieve this. We want to be a home for life, so our nursing team have the flexibility to respond to the changing needs of our residents, enabling them to enjoy the right care as their needs evolve.
We provide the following:
Nursing care is any care that requires a Registered Nurse to undertake or supervise the care. And our team of nurses provide quality 24-hour care for people with more complex health- and rehabilitation needs.
Supported by our care team, we pride ourselves on getting to know and keeping close eye on each of our residents. We liaise with GPs and the primary care network, where necessary, to ensure our residents’ needs are met, too. Our overarching focus is on providing nursing care for every day or end-of-life, that’s personalised, compassionate and professional
Care for older people:
Often referred to as personal or social care, residential care services are provided by our team for residents, who may no longer be able to live alone or no longer wish to live alone at home. From washing and dressing to supporting mealtimes and the administration of medication, our team build trusting relationships with residents to understand the exact care they need.
Increasingly common in older people, our team are proficient in caring for – and enhancing the quality of life of people with dementia. All types of dementia are associated with a decline in memory or thinking skills, and sometimes these symptoms may be relatively mild but sometimes they may affect people in a more significant way. This can affect their ability to perform everyday activities, an d that’s where we come in.
We work closely with families to support residents with a mild to moderate conditions, whether they’ve been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or one of the other types of dementia which exist.
Millway House offers short stay care – otherwise known as respite care – for people who need some support in between leaving hospital and returning home, or when family members, who provide the usual care, are away on holiday. Our team offer the nursing care required in a friendly and welcoming home-from-home environment.
