Philosophy of Care
Our Philosophy of Care
Our aim is to provide the highest possible standard of care to all our residents through a range of specialist services.
First and foremost, it is our aim to provide an environment that all residents can regard as their home. We are therefore focused on making sure our residents are cared for in a safe, warm, secure and caring environment. We recognise that our care centre must operate to meet the needs of our residents and that their wishes are paramount.
We offer care that is of the highest standard, and is tailored to meet individuals with specific wishes and choices. These choices will be respected at all times. We are determined to preserve the dignity, individuality and privacy of our residents, and do this in a manner that is sensitive to their ever-changing needs.
Care is planned with regard to current research and guidelines on good practice. Wherever possible, the resident and their family will be involved in the planning of care. Input from relatives will be encouraged and valued. We achieve these objectives through programmes of care, therapy and activities designed to improve or maintain levels of cognitive development and function, physical condition, self-esteem and interaction.
We will provide care that is non-discriminatory. Our residents will be treated with respect, regardless of age, sex, race or religious belief. We acknowledge the right of our residents to worship in their own faith, and assistance will be given to make sure this is possible.
