LATER LIVING THAT IS ENJOYABLE AND FULFILLING
the care we provide
We spend time getting to know each of our residents personally, because we know that learning about your family, hobbies and life history enables us to tailor our support, and balance care with independence and wellbeing.
A dementia diagnosis doesn’t stop you from being you. We take the same person-centred approach to tailor care to your individual needs, with additional input from specially trained staff who can provide therapies and activities which can help slow the onset of dementia and raise quality of life.
As well as honing medical interventions with GP and outreach teams, we use ‘reminiscence time’ to draw out more insights from your life story, learning about your strengths, skills and interests so we can engage you with empowering activities.
Caring is a round-the-clock job and it is vitally important that primary caregivers take care of themselves as well as their loved one.
Sometimes, that means taking a break to recharge your batteries or catch up with friends and other family members, so we offer short-term respite care for anything from a few days to a few weeks. We’ll take over the daily care, supported by specialist therapies, and welcome you to our community, freeing caregivers to recuperate.
We work closely with district nurses, GPs and healthcare professionals to provide sensitive end-of-life care in each of our homes. Our staff provide compassionate hands-on care to ensure that the last days of life are as comfortable and dignified as possible, while supporting families and relatives at a difficult time.
We do our utmost to provide palliative care and pain management, and to make sure spiritual needs are met and personal wishes respected.
We’re unable to offer day care at the moment due to Covid-19 infection control measures, however in normal times we open our doors to local older people who either don’t need full-time residential care, or are looking for the companionship and activities that our homes provide.
