Life at a care home
In most care homes, ground floor rooms on the sunny South and West sides of the building have access onto their own patios; a feature greatly in demand.
All bedrooms are tastefully furnished and residents are welcome to bring items of furniture and memorabilia to truly make this feel like their home.
Care homes provide residential, nursing and dementia care for the elderly, on a long and short-term basis.
From the outset, their aim has been to gather the best staff team possible and they are proud to deliver standards of care and compassion second to none.
Medical, dental, optical, physiotherapy and occupational therapy services are arranged by referral.
Care home facilities
Residents have a wide range of programmes available for them to enjoy, from engaging social activities to planned events.
There is also a range of outdoor activities such as managing the chicken coop and greenhouse gardening.
Care homes often have a team of qualified chefs and assistant catering staff who pride themselves on delivering wholesome, home-cooked traditional fare, using quality local produce for a balanced and nutritious menu, which includes special dietary needs.
A new perk of most care homes, a Cinema is not simply designed for entertainment. There is strong evidence that reminiscence is a major factor in rehabilitation for dementia sufferers.
So, whether it is a classic Humphrey Bogart movie or a home movie, this is a facility which can make a significant difference.
Physical Therapy is provided in impressive therapy rooms, which has specially designed equipment covering a wide range of needs for the frail and elderly.
Physical exercise is also known to have rehabilitation benefits for those suffering from dementia.
Hairdressing and beauty treatments are available to residents from a fully equipped salon. This very popular feature helps residents to feel good about their appearance and therefore ranks highly as a therapeutic event.
