Our aim is to help those who come to live with us to remain as independent as possible. We provide person-centred care, which means that we want our residents to make choices about how they live their daily lives with our additional support and care.
A trained nurse is on hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Our nurses offer excellent medical expertise as well as providing reassurance and support to our residents.
Our well-trained Healthcare Assistants are also on hand to provide friendly personal care and support to residents.
Each resident has an individual care plan to ensure we can meet their needs effectively. These plans are reviewed periodically with the help of the resident, key staff, family and any other external parties involved. Each resident also has a named nurse and key care worker.
Dementia Care including Alzheimer’s Disease
We strive to create a homely atmosphere in a relaxed and secure environment where residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and individuality is respected. We aim to encourage freedom of choice and promote our residents sense of self-worth.
Those living with confusion, memory loss and dementia are very often misunderstood. Our staff are trained in dementia care and provide the specialised support and care that is needed.
Each resident has a personalised care plan, which provides the basis for developing an appropriate new lifestyle, including activities and routines and allowing family members to remain involved in the life of the resident wherever possible.
We offer compassionate care for those with chronic and terminal illness. Our specially trained palliative nursing and care staff use active care methods to manage pain and maintain quality of life. Staff members work closely with family, friends and carers, providing them with support, and work alongside palliative care specialists to provide care in an environment that suits the needs and wishes of the resident.
The Home provides respite care. Journalists and their dependants are offered one week’s free respite care.
