Health & Wellbeing

Health

healthThe prime objective of our home is to promote and foster health and wellbeing. On admission of each resident, an assessment of need is performed by a senior member of the care team, from which a Care Plan is created.

Residents, their relatives and doctors are offered and encouraged to participate in the drafting of their Care Plan. A review is conducted monthly, unless changes in the resident's condition necessitate more frequent reviews.

When new residents join the home, we recommend that they remain with their own doctor, who is familiar with their health and history. Residents from outside the area are welcome to join any of our local doctors' practices.

In case of illness, relatives are informed immediately and are updated regularly on the patient's recovery. If family members wish to be present whilst their relative is ill, we help arrange suitable accommodation for them at a local Bed & Breakfast. Residents using the home for convalescent purposes are attended by a rehabilitation team to prepare them for discharge home.
