Our Care Services
In both of our homes we are able to offer a range of care services from support with day to day activities to more involved nursing care. We continually monitor and assess our residents to ensure that they are receiving the level of care that they are happy with and that all of their needs are being met. Having both care and nursing teams available at our homes means we are able to manage the transition of care when someone’s health or mobility needs change or deteriorate without the need to move home.
In addition we are often able to offer short term stays for respite or for recuperation after a spell in hospital.
People who are reasonably independent would be suited to residential care.
Many people come to us if they are feeling lonely and looking to enjoy the company of other residents and staff and take part in activities each day.
Daily responsibilities such as laundry and meals are taken care of by our staff. This enables our residents to have more energy to remain independent in other areas like socialising with friends and family or taking part in activities.
Care staff are available at both homes 24 hours a day to offer support and peace of mind.
Nursing care varies from one person to the next and no two person’s needs are ever the same. Residents will require the assistance of the care team in every aspect of their daily routine from personal care to assistance with eating and drinking.
Assessments will be carried out to establish the needs of the individual and put a comprehensive care plan in place. This will be reviewed regularly to ensure the care being delivered is in line with the changing needs of the individual.
We also offer a residential to nursing transition if a resident’s needs should change. This prevents the upheaval and distress of moving homes.
End of Life Care
End of life care is initiated when a person has an illness that can’t be cured or their frailty and multiple health conditions become life limiting. End of life care is carefully planned and agreed with both resident and their family or loved ones. Palliative care is delivered to relieve and prevent pain and other symptoms as a person approaches the end of their life, making them as comfortable as possible. Palliative care can also involve psychological, social and spiritual support for all those directly affected. Our nursing teams at both homes are trained to deliver palliative care.
Respite care is also available at both homes as and when we have availability. Respite care is particularly helpful if you require some support with your recuperation after a spell in hospital, particularly if you live alone. It is also a good way to provide a rest for loved ones who usually provide your care at home.
Sometimes people who come and stay with us on a respite basis make the decision to stay with us permanently but the length of time you are with us is completely up to you.
