The services listed here are just some of what we can offer to support our residents. All requests for this kind of support will be considered by the Registered Manager.
We have a regular advocate who visits the home weeks. The advocate acts as an independent representative for all residents, she is known as a listening ear and her role is to listen to worries that people may not feel they can communicate to staff. This is then fed back to the Manager so that the issues can be addressed and the individual is helped and supported not to worry anymore. This was so popular that we employed our own worry catcher to do the same once weekly.
We have our own fully equipped hair salon and a hairdresser visits the home weekly on a Monday, where people are able to make their own appointments at their own cost.
Alternatively, people who have their own hairdresser can arrange for them to use our facilities by prior arrangement with the Manager. We also have nail tables and foot spas.
A fully qualified foot health professional visits the home six to eight weekly to attend to chiropody needs. of the residents.
There is a charge for this service, alternatively people may retain their own chiropodist or foot health professional and may use the facilities within the home by prior arrangement.
We are able to obtain the services of a visiting optician if a need is required. The optician will visit and offer a full range of services to residents
Should a person already have an optician, that optician is welcome to come to the home to provide services here.
Depending on the location people can retain their own dental services, otherwise the home can assist with sourcing a local visiting dentist.
There are two dental practices in the village which accept NHS patients and practices close by.
We have a regular exercise programme from outside sources and music for health fortnightly.
These are group activities open to all and in addition we have in-house chair based exercise and an adapted exercise bike that helps strengthen both arms and legs.
