We have several sheltered housing apartments surrounding the care home. Each apartment is connected to the nurse call system so people are able to summon assistance quickly. We are also able to provide personal care to people living in Supported Living, allowing people to remain independent for as long as possible.
We care for people with many types of dementia. We do not operate a locked door environment as we try to replicate the variety and spontaneity of normal daily life. Due to our rural location our clients have the freedom to explore the grounds and join in with our varied activities as they choose.
Our Daycare Centre is open five days a week for people to spend the day with us. We can arrange transport locally and we provide activities, entertainment, singing, dancing, arts and crafts, reminiscing and the opportunity to socialise. We serve a two course hot meal alongside snacks and drinks. We can also provide people with personal care, medication, chiropody, hairdressing and even a shower or bath.
Occasionally we are able to provide temporary respite stays. Respite can be anything from 1 night to several months, depending on the person’s needs and our capacity.
