The Chase is a modern purpose built nursing home, tastefully decorated, providing a warm, friendly environment for its residents.
It is in easy reach of local shops, major road routes M25 and M1.
We offer a wide range of facilities, to give our residents a full, varied and enjoyable lifestyle. Trained staff are always on hand to provide assistance where required, allowing our residents to enjoy everything the home has to offer whilst promoting respect, privacy and independence.
Part of our facilities and services that sets us apart from other nursing homes within the area, is the physiotherapy service available on site.
The Chase care home has a physiotherapy service available from Monday to Saturday. Their qualified physiotherapist works as an autonomous practitioner which has allowed her to develop abilities to assess patient conditions, establish a diagnosis and formulate a specialised treatment plan from a range of modalities. With the help of the physiotherapist assistant, she offers regular 30-60 minute classes in the gym or in resident’s rooms as soon as possible in order to optimise their comfort and rehabilitation progress.
In the gym, there is a variety of rehabilitation equipment including: standing frame, tilt-table, ergo bicycle especially designed for wheelchair users, bobath plinth, parallel bars, pulpit frame, zimmer frame, mattress, blankets, cushions, balls of various sizes, dumbbells, small bags, rehabilitation ball, teraband rubber, chairs etc. A fully equipped gym helps to optimise resident’s rehabilitation potential.
While the physio team are organising the exercises and rehabilitation activities they are constantly in contact with doctors, nurses, carers and relatives. They communicate effectively with colleagues and communicate complex and sensitive information requiring empathy and reassurance with patients with the ethos of a person-centred approach. They also have established a good relationship with local occupational therapist and wheelchair services making sure residents with mobility and postural problems are delivered with correct wheelchairs, bearing in mind their comfort and safety.
The service extends to elderly rehabilitation, orthopaedic rehabilitation, dementia cases which includes Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, learning and physical disabilities, spinal cord injured and arthritis to name but a few.
The home is situated in walking distance from the Cassiobury Park, one of Watford’s most popular attractions in Watford, receiving around 800,000 visits per year and hosting a number of popular sporting and entertainment events.
There are local shops, a pharmacy and the doctor’s surgery is a stones throw away from the home. There is a large supermarket a few minutes away. The town centre is also about a 5 minute drive so all amenities are on hand with a good link of public transport.
