Each person is unique and deserves an opportunity to live out their lives as independently and happily as they can, with the level of support they need to achieve this.
Please call us to discuss how we may help you.
We have invested in training our carers to recognise and support our clients with the daily challenges of living with dementia. We have had the privilege of supporting our clients, over many years as their dementia progresses. We offer the real and positive option of staying at home rather than the option of going into residential care.
We are often asked the question “when should we think about mum or dad going into a residential care home”. We respond by saying that as long as there is a real benefit to the person involved, which means that they still recognise their environment, their families, friends, carers and enjoy being in their own homes, this in our opinion, is the best option. If however, due to worsening symptoms, when a person does not recognise their loved ones, and becomes increasingly agitated, possibly wandering, especially at night, then the benefit of being at home, can become outweighed by the need for a safer more protective environment in a residential setting. We have over the decades supported many clients, who are all unique individuals and have different care needs and challenges, enabling them to have a high quality of life in their own homes.
We have invested in our care staff’s training, and have held the Investors in People Award since 2002. The assessor at our last inspection after speaking to our staff said that he had never met such a positive workforce. We also held a 3 * Excellent Care Quality Commission Award, whilst this rating system was in operation. We have been awarded 97% from our local authority in their last inspection. We have a fully qualified in-house Trainer, Vikki Tunnicliffe who oversees all aspects of our staff training, and we pride ourselves on excellent staff retention.
