Residential Care homes is based on a relaxed and subtle approach promoting independence, with the reassurance that each individual has a large team behind them for support. Our aim is to empower our clients and celebrate their individuality and diversity, whilst maintaining a safe, comfortable and caring environment. We offer a varied programme of activities which enhances the lives of our residents.
We offer residential care services for clients in our Blenheim House Unit and our Kensington House Unit. Blenheim House is a fifteen bed Home for people with no dementia. In Kensington House our ground floor is for residents with mild to moderate dementia care that require residential care.
Qualified staff are on duty twenty four hours a day to provide full support to our residents which includes assistance with getting up, washing and dressing in the mornings, assistance with meals and the dispensing of medication. All laundry is done on site and staff assist in keeping wardrobes and rooms tidy and will liaise with families for any requirements that each resident may have, for example, if toiletries are running low.
In our residential dementia Home, staff are trained in dementia and can offer appropriate support to all residents in this respect. We have visiting professionals such as hairdressers, chiropodist etc. We are also able to arrange visits to dentists and opticians.
Residents are able to take advantage of the various trips and care home activities that take place throughout the month. A newsletter is printed once a month which provides details of what is taking place across the site. Residents are able to visit other Homes on the village if there is something that they wish to take part in.
Regular meetings are also held where residents can have their say on anything that they have an interest in. Suggestions can also be made for menu choices, trips out etc.
Our residents are also encouraged to make use of the tranquil grounds we have on our Care Village. During the summer months we provide plenty of seating and shade to enable residents to spend valuable time outside, without the risk of sun exposure.
