Description

We recognise that it’s not just about physical care, but also about supporting our residents to obtain the best from their lives.

To achieve this we employ fully trained and dedicated professionals. We continue to develop their skills and knowledge to ensure that exceptionally high standards of person-centred care is delivered in a friendly manner throughout our service. A comprehensive approach to care Every resident has a personalised care plan where residents and families may contribute, which describes what help and assistance they require and how they would like their care to be provided.

The care plan includes all aspects of daily living such as medication, routines, how they prefer to be addressed, and their likes and dislikes. It enables our carers to provide thoughtful and individual care to our residents ensuring their needs are met in a safe, secure and relaxed atmosphere.

Our home appreciates that families, friends and the wider community, as well as other professionals such as doctors and social workers are important to the lives of our residents and to the Care Home.

Although all our professional carers work to ensure that our residents’ needs and preferences are met, we also provide every resident with a named member of staff who will act as their Key Worker. This ensures continued familiarity for each resident.

This is supported by all our staff but especially by our dedicated activity staff who help co-ordinate programmes for our residents according to their choices and individual hobbies.

On any particular day, our residents could be enjoying a drive in a car or mini-bus, participating in reminiscence workshops, planting their favourite flowers in the garden, or enjoying a cinema afternoon with a glass of champagne.
