Our aim is to create a ‘home’, a place that we hope will be filled with friendship, love and laughter. Moving from one address to another, residents are respected, valued and empowered to live their lives in a way that brings them joy, happiness and the very best quality of life.
We recognise the importance of creating a culture where there are positive relationships between residents, care teams, families and friends. By forming such relationships, we hope that residents feel comfortable in exploring ideas, interests and wishes. By learning more about the individual, we are able to ensure that their home offers everything that they need and is a place where they can be happy.
As they say, ‘home is where the heart is’ and we strive to ensure that all of our residents feel a sense of security and belonging and also feel comfortable in their new home. Individuals are empowered to take control of their daily lives and continue enjoying their day to day routines as they always have done. Individuals who live with us have a direct say in the running of the homes, and our care teams are at hand to join in the fun and support in enabling people to achieve a sense of purpose each and every day.
Our homes offer a variety of lifestyle choices personalised to ability, goals and aspirations. Residents are encouraged to contribute to the household and to participate in all aspects of the home. From spontaneous moments of fun and interaction, to supporting an individual to do their domestic tasks, gardening or enjoying a nice cup of coffee and sharing a crossword with a friend.
Come Dine with Me
We take great pride in and look forward to mealtimes. Our dining areas are set to high standards and in keeping with flexible living, mealtimes are often adapted depending on what may be planned for that particular day. Mealtimes are wonderful social occasions which can be enjoyed with family and friends or on quieter days, can be experienced more informally in the lounge areas or individual spaces. Residents take pleasure in summer BBQ’s, afternoon tea and fish and chip nights which also add variety to the dining experience.
