Our schemes for older people provide a relaxing and friendly atmosphere where residents can feel secure and well cared for. Person-centred care and support is provided whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle through social activities, exercise and maintaining links with the local community.
Residents have their own flatlet with en-suite bathroom and are encouraged to create their own home by bringing personal belongings to make their flatlet feel like a home-from-home. Some flatlets have built in furniture and some also have a built in kitchenette.
All schemes are specifically designed to provide personal space and communal areas. There are open communal spaces both inside and outside each scheme which enable residents to walk freely in a secure and safe environment.
Most of our properties registered for dementia care provide 24 hour care and support with the exception of 3 supported housing schemes, Barn Halt Cottages and Gnangara Bungalows, where support is provided between 8am – 10pm and Spelga Avenue, where support is available from 8am – 8pm.
We arrange medical and other professional service providers to visit the scheme such as:
We believe in providing a well-balanced diet using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Before a resident moves in, we will sit down with them and their carer to discuss their dietary requirements, including any specially prescribed diet. Catering services are inspected by local Environmental Health Services ensuring full compliance with Safe Catering Guidelines.
All our meals are freshly cooked on-site at the scheme. All menu plans are displayed in the communal dining rooms and on resident noticeboards. Meals are generally served in our communal dining rooms, allowing residents to meet and socialise, however meals can also be accommodated in a resident’s own flatlet should this be their wish to do so.
An active lifestyle can make a huge difference to our residents. Staff arrange activities that stimulate the mind and body, and also encourage socialising with others. All our activities are tailored to each individual residents' interests, ensuring that they are engaged and willing to get involved. Residents are encouraged to bring their own ideas for activities and participate in developing the programme of events with staff at the scheme.
Most schemes will arrange day trips and shopping outings for residents, whilst providing a range of activities in the home, including arts & crafts, musical entertainment, reminiscing, exercise sessions, spa days quizzes and other entertainment.
We aim to ensure each resident can continue to maintain links with the local community by getting out and about.
Your health is very important. Where possible you will retain your GP and other healthcare providers. We can arrange new providers for you necessary. We can manage all aspects relating to medication if required, or otherwise support you to keep doing this yourself.
