Residential Care can be described in varying ways, but is often given in general “Care Homes”. Residential Care is for those who require basic assistance and support with their everyday lives, or may be suffering from loneliness at home, especially following the loss of a loved one. However, those in residential care should not require daily nursing care, but are simply unable to be as independent as they once were.
Residential Care can vary from short term (respite) to long term stays. Respite stays are excellent for those who need low level care and rely on their families to do so, but the family may be away on holiday or unable to provide the support for a short amount of time. Christmas tends to be a popular time for those looking for Respite stays, as this can be a busy time for families with their elderly relatives feeling they may be a burden. Respite stays allows for those residents to build relationships and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness while relieving pressures of basic activities such as cooking, cleaning, laundry or even washing or dressing.
SPECIALISED RESIDENTIAL CARE
Residential Care is very different to Nursing Care and Dementia Care. It is for those with very low level needs and not suitable for those suffering with Dementia. However, Residential Care still provides 24 hour care to assist those living there. It
Our residential communities are designed for people who may not need 24-hour nursing care but are unable to live quite as independently as they once did.
Whether someone may need help with their medication routine to having support for personal care, our dedicated care team will be on hand 24 hours a day to assist.
As sometimes care needs may increase, our trusted care team will be on hand to offer further support if needed and recommend help from the community in the form of Physiotherapy, District Nurses or Opticians
