Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.

Our residents are the voice of Abercorn House and are actively engaged in everything that happens here. They drive the decisions on everything from the style of the soft furnishings following the recent refurbishment, to suggesting new ideas for recipes they love to see on the menu. The residents are very much in the driving seat and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

The team listens very carefully to what makes their residents happy, especially when it comes to what they enjoy spending their time doing. Many love to visit the dementia gardens in the grounds of Hamilton Academical Football Club, as well as taking advantage of the private dementia-friendly cinema screenings that they enjoy at this club. They really do get the VIP treatment.

Our team – dedicated and fearless!

The team are completely dedicated to the residents and we have many staff who have worked at Abercorn House for over 15 years. They, like the residents feel very much at home. There is a very special feeling when you walk through that door, something people often compliment us on. 

This year, we have very brave members of staff going to do a sky dive to raise money towards buying a pioneering piece of equipment known as a ‘Magic Table’ for the home. It stimulates people living with dementia to engage with one another through interactive light games which are projected onto a table. The table has been a huge hit in some of Sanctuary Care’s other homes outside of South Lanarkshire.

Stimulating activities in later life

Staff have been amazed at how certain residents, who are sometimes more reluctant to take part in activities, love using the magic table. They will sit and engage with their fellow residents and the team by playing these simple and fun games.

Situated in the Low Waters area in Hamilton, our care home is close to the town centre. With our own minibus, we have lots of options available for trips and excursions further afield across South Lanarkshire.

Our residents are excited to be planning for a garden makeover, choosing everything from the design and layout to the plants and the type of furniture they would like.

This year the team and residents at Abercorn House are also planning the home’s first summer dance. The dance is taking place at a mining club in Hamilton and is something everyone is very excited about.

The home also has its own family room which can be used to give loved ones the space and privacy to celebrate special family occasions.
