Residential care is appropriate for individuals who find it increasingly difficult to cope at home without assistance. We offer a home-like setting with varying levels of supervision, personal, and medical care depending on the residents needs. For each resident, we design an individual care plan to ensure you are cared for in the way you choose and will always go the extra mile to make a difference to your life.
Dementia is the general term used to describe a set of symptoms that affect intellectual and social abilities, such as memory, problem solving and communication with Alzheimers beings the most common form of dementia. Each person’s symptoms and progression differ and consequently there are many treatments and care options available. We treat all of our residents as individuals and tailor our care around their needs. With the help of family and loved ones, we're able to get to know our residents, creating a picture of their life and making sure we base our care around their likes, dislikes and habits.
Respite care is a temporary stay in a care home, either to help the individual transition from hospital back to their usual residence whilst they are recovering from an operation or illness, or to provide a temporary break for the individual’s usual carers. Their length of stay can range from a few days to several weeks or more.
Caring for someone can be a full-time job and it’s easy as a carer to carry on working without a break, potentially getting exhausted or stressed. Respite care allows carers to take a break from their day-to-day responsibilities and spend some time looking after their own needs whilst assured that their loved ones are getting the care that they need.
You may consider a short stay care if:
- You’re planning a holiday and need care cover for your loved one while you’re away
- You’re considering a care home for a loved one and they'd like a trial visit
- If they usually live independently, they may need help to recover safely from an illness or operation
- You would like to use respite as a trial visit if thinking about moving to a home permanently
Our day care service offers a single day care for those unable to stay at home alone, even for short periods. The adult would receive supervised care within a safe and secure environment. Our day care includes all the benefits of our facilities including hot meals, snacks and drinks, social and recreational activities, and health-related assistance. This gives the adults usual carers a chance to take a break with the reassurance that the person you care for will receive the best attention. The guests have the chance to mix and make friends with our more permanent residents at the home.
