Description

Nursing homes provide residents with personal care that offers support for the health and well-being of residents, with qualified nursing care on duty 24-hours a day. This can be a great relief for families and residents who are finding it challenging to live independently with specific care needs.

Each home has selected staff who are medically trained and can assist residents with a variety of nursing needs, whilst continuing to promote independence wherever possible. A number of specialist facilities include, specialised baths, specialised beds, lifts and wheelchair access to ensure comfort and mobility within the home.

Dementia nursing care is designed to support residents who are living with dementia and who have complex health needs that require care and support from our qualified nurses and staff.

The service provides a safe environment that assists, cares and supports individuals with dementia and other complex needs, whilst also attempting to maintain the individual’s skills and abilities throughout their own personal dementia journey. It is important for us to learn and understand how each person’s sensory characteristics interplay within the unit, as this will assist us to devise a suitable living environment whilst understanding and supporting the individual’s needs.

Whether it's a home-made pie or a fresh fruit sponge, our cooks pride themselves on knowing the tastes of our Residents. We provide a quality menu with a range of choices for all our residents. We offer a selection of snacks and fresh fruit which is available throughout the day.
