Aims and objectives
The aim of our home is to provide our residents with the highest possible standard of care. We specialise in providing care for adults with a learning disability suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s, memory loss and similar disorders. We provide care that is of the highest quality and individually designed to meet residents` unique needs and preferences. We aim to provide a homely, comfortable and above all a happy nurturing environment where care is planned with the active involvement of residents themselves as well as their relatives, friends, medical professionals and others wherever appropriate. The home offers 24/7 residential care and is registered with the Care Quality Commission to accommodate 20 adults with mild learning disabilities. The bungalows are a strictly no smoking environment. Smoking is permitted outside in the designated areas. The ethos of the home is to help our residents and those in respite to lead a happy and dignified life and to become and remain as self-reliant and independent as possible within a safe environment.
The home is set in a small, semi-rural location and benefits from peaceful, quiet surroundings and a friendly community. The buildings are spacious and well maintained and offer a high quality environment with a good degree of privacy. The grounds are well maintained and fully accessible to the residents for them to enjoy. It is our mission to offer residents an excellent standard of living in comfortable, homely conditions, and we make every effort to ensure a friendly, welcoming atmosphere in a home which is maintained in good order, comfortably furnished and attractively decorated. While the home provides a range of activities for people to join in together, the home also respects the rights of the individual to have their own space and to enjoy this, particularly when family and friends are visiting. To support this we have a number of different communal areas where residents can sit and chat, read, or enjoy the garden views. This includes our memory garden were we can reminisce and remember our loved ones. We also have two conservatories, patio areas, and a wealth of quiet areas in the gardens.
