Care Home Services from Meridian
Meridian care homes - for all needs
Meridian Healthcare offers a range of care home services to meet the needs of older people. Care centres are located across the north, from Liverpool to Scunthorpe. Each offers different care services; use this guide to decide which is most suitable for you or your loved one.
Residential care services
If an older person cannot go on living in their own home - even with the support of home care services - it may be time to think about residential care. With large en suite bedrooms, three delicious meals a day, and plenty of activities to choose from, Meridian's residential care homes are comfortable and sociable places to be.
Of course, if your relative has dementia or Alzheimer's, they will need specialist care to improve their quality of life. The staff at our dementia care homes are specially trained to look after these residents in a way that is tailored to their personality and personal history. Furthermore, activities are laid on that can jog the memory or stimulate the senses - both proven to be beneficial to older people living with dementia.
Nursing care services
Meridian's nursing homes are for older people with a health problem or disability that requires special attention. Nurses are on site 24 hours a day to assist with regular medical care, and there is a nurse call system in every room in case of emergencies. Meridian also prides itself on offering all-round elderly health care, from personal diet plans to gentle exercise and plenty of fun and sociable activities, all of which help to improve quality of life.
Respite care means a temporary stay in one of our care homes. This is ideal for an older person recovering from an illness or hospital stay, or if the usual carer is unavailable or taking a break. Those using our respite care services receive all the same benefits, activities and home-cooked meals as our permanent residents.
Day care centres
For older people in Tameside, Meridian has teamed up with the Local Authority to provide day care centres. This is perfect for anyone who wants to keep living in their own home, but wants to pop in from time to time to socialise, try some activities, or use the specially adapted bathing facilities.
