Long Term Care
Exceptional care has unparalleled impacts on the health and the quality of your life. Our nurturing environment and tailored, individual care allows people to flourish and to live well. The home environment ensures privacy is respected and all residents benefit from the homely community spirit.
As a care giver some time to rest can be hard to come by. We provide support to carers and family members by offering short term stays in our secure, homely surroundings.
Round the clock, we are here for you. Our care team is here to assist with all daily needs and activities, including: bathing, using the bathroom, getting dressed and eating. Laundry services, housekeeping and maintenance go without saying and our catering team are here to provide made-to-order fresh and delicious food and beverages.
With a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day we are fully equipped to deal with the needs of our residents. When more specialist treatment is required our staff are experts in identifying the need for referral to clinical speech and language therapists, dieticians, psychiatrists and other trusted specialist service providers.
Along with the opportunity to be taken out by loved ones or by a member of staff when arranged in advance, we organise group outings to places residents ask to visit. Past outings have been to Devils Dyke, The Arundel wetland centre, parks, garden centres, shopping destinations, theatres and beaches.
We frequently offer a variety of activities for our residents which are inclusive for all abilities. Activity leaders visit the home most afternoons and our list of activities is ever expanding with new suggestions from residents all the time.
End of Life Care
We are very proud to have been accredited with Platinum Status in end of life care by the Gold Standards Framework (GSF).
This means that our staff have passed a challenging programme which improves the way we deliver end of life care, giving us the tools to ensure our residents live and die well. We make advance care plans along with residents and families so that a good death is assured when the time comes, and 100% of our residents pass in their preferred setting.
