Residential care offers older people support with day to day tasks including washing, cleaning or dressing while promoting independence and person-centred care to those who do not have needs that require specialist nursing or dementia care.
Our residential care homes have all of the comforts you would expect, with the small personal touches that make a real difference.
Moving into a care home doesn’t mean someone needs to leave their previous life behind. We support our residents to be as independent as possible, safe in the knowledge that we are there whenever they need us.
Our dedicated carers are there around the clock to offer support, provide personal care as well as companionship.
Many of our residents see their carers as members of their extended family, and it’s this close bond that they share, which makes our homes truly special.
By working closely with other healthcare professionals, we are able to care for people who have underlying health conditions. District nurses come in and administer insulin, change dressings and take blood pressure, meaning that our residents can remain in the comfort of their home when they need medical support, rather than going into hospital.
We pride ourselves on caring for our residents as though they were members of our own family. With this in mind, our residential care homes are designed with all the usual comforts you would expect from home, creating a relaxing atmosphere with features such as cosy fireplaces and personalised bedrooms.
In partnership with our residents and their loved ones, we create a bespoke care plan to build a picture of not only their health and wellbeing needs but their emotional needs and who they are as an individual.
We tailor care and support to residents’ personal needs, so whether it’s something as simple as knowing they like a little extra sugar in their tea, to helping someone to rekindle a much-loved past time; we are there to help them to live life to the full.
Our residents are free to spend their time how they choose whether taking part in an activity, such as a craft or baking session or simply relaxing in the garden with a good book.
In all of our homes, our catering teams prepare a variety of seasonal home-cooked meals, with taste and nutrition at the heart of every dish, where residents choose from varied daily menus.
If the time comes for a resident to need palliative care, we work closely with palliative care specialists and district nurses so that we can continue to care for them in the comfort and privacy of their home, reducing the likelihood they will need to spend their final days in a hospital.
