Residential Care

Residential care is a suitable care option for those who are finding it increasingly difficult to live by themselves. Many older people prefer to live in a residential care home as it provides them with security, social engagement, and continual care and support on a daily basis. Residents can live an enriching life at our home and avoid the stresses of maintaining a household including chores such as cleaning, cooking washing and finances.

Residential care is designed to support a resident’s overall well-being. Our team goes above and beyond to provide more than just basic care for our residents as we want them to live in a loving environment that promotes both physical and mental stimulation. Residents have access to a variety of all-inclusive amenities and services as well around-the-clock care.

Nursing Care

Our home provides nursing care for individuals who need 24/7 medical and personal care. This care type is beneficial for individuals who have physical disabilities, or who have long-term health conditions and illnesses, as they require dependency on others, therefore a nursing team are the best people for the job. Our mission is to help residents live a comfortable life while we support them and their demanding needs.

Residents who reside at our nursing home will receive a high standard of care at all hours of the day and night from our experienced team of nurses. Each resident will be supported by a dedicated nurse who will get to know everything about them in order to provide care that provides maximum comfort, security and happiness.

We are able to provide unrivalled person-centred dementia care for a variety of needs, supporting the different types of dementia and its stages. Just like with our other types of care, we approach every resident’s care differently, making our dementia care plans unique to each individual circumstance.

Our activities programme incorporates dementia-friendly activities so that residents of all abilities can join in on the fun. Our goal is to provide every resident with the opportunity to experience a lifestyle that suits them and provide a nurturing environment where they can be truly happy.

Respite Care

Respite Care is offered to anyone who needs a break from their everyday lives. It could be that someone is a full-time carer for a loved one, therefore respite care is the ideal option for caregivers to take a well-deserved break from their challenging duties, while we take of everything for a while.

Respite Care is also suitable for those who are recovering from an illness or injury and need some time out from their usual routines. For an individual hesitant about moving to a care home on a permanent basis, respite care can be used as a way of trialling a home before fully committing to the move.
