What types of Manchester care home are available?
As well as choosing a care home in a convenient and familiar location, it's important that the individual needs of your loved one are catered for. In Manchester, care homes can include nursing care, dementia care or simple residential care. But what is the difference between these services?
Our nursing care services are ideal for elderly people with an illness or disability that requires special attention. Although all of our care homes provide a degree of personal care, Meridian nursing homes have round-the-clock nursing staff on hand for medical assistance and a higher level of personal care. Our Manchester nursing homes are Stamford Court near Stalybridge, and Hyde nursing home.
Elderly people with dementia or Alzheimer's can find specially trained staff and a range of stimulating activities in a Meridian dementia care home. Dementia care in Manchester is available at Hyde nursing home, Kingsfield, Millbrook and Yew Trees in Tameside.
Finally, Meridian has residential care homes for the elderly all over Greater Manchester. Although they do not provide complex nursing services or specialist dementia care, Meridian residential homes offer healthy meals, personal care, sociable activities and friendly staff. It's our holistic approach to care that makes our care homes in Manchester and beyond such lovely places to live.
Paying for residential care homes in Manchester
You are entitled to be assessed by your local authority to determine your care requirements. They will also take stock of your financial situation, and see how much of your fees you can afford to pay yourself. If you're eligible for funding, it is your current local authority that will provide that funding even if you choose to move to our Manchester residential care homes.
Whether you are receiving funding or paying for care yourself, you have the right to choose which care centre you would like to live in. As a result, many elderly people choose to move to a residential home in Manchester that is nearer their family or friends, or perhaps a home where a spouse or friend already lives. It's also vital to find out whether a care home has all the right facilities and the necessary care home services to meet your needs. However, the most important things to consider when choosing a residential care centre are the atmosphere and reputation. Our award winning care centres and staff are renowned for providing a high level of personal care in a clean, safe environment, while of course treating residents with dignity and respect at all times.
But why not see for yourself? We welcome visits from prospective residents and their families, where you can see what the bedrooms are like, chat to the staff and residents, or even sit in on an activity session. From Hurst Hall in Ashton to Greatwood House down in Hyde, all our Manchester care homes have a unique atmosphere and community feel. This gives you plenty of options when it comes to choosing your new home.
