We believe all residents who share our home, are individuals worthy of the best care our staff can provide. We encourage our resident's family, friends and members of our community to share in the happiness and wellbeing of the residents and with respect to their capabilities, let them be themselves, within a safe, secure and happy environment.
Some of our special features include:
A number of our residents have lived in the Inglewood area for many years so they have established strong links within the community. Likewise as a community based facility we also have considerable input from local people who frequently visit. This interaction of local people creates a sense of social connectedness.
We support our residents to retain as much independence as possible and to be involved as much as they wish in the day to day activities in the home.
Marinoto is spacious yet homely. Many of the living spaces look like one might expect in a large country home.
Understanding of the transition that accompanies rest home entry is always an important consideration to management and staff when providing support to the resident's family.
Family may assist in the care of their relative if they wish to. Family are invited to have input into care plans.
At Marinoto, we aim to provide our residents with quality care appropriate to their individual needs and wishes, taking into account any cultural and religious preferences. We want them to live in an environment of respect and kindness. Our staff undertake to uphold the dignity, privacy and comfort of these people, in a warm, family oriented atmosphere. Our Managers and staff are available to help residents and their family come to terms with the changes required when entering rest home care.
