Is there a physiotherapist?
We have a physiotherapist who visits every 4-6 weeks, but an other visits can be arranged if necessary.
Do you have a registered nurse available?
Registered nurses are rostered on 24/7 and residents care is overseen by our Clinical Leader.
Can I see my own social worker?
Should any resident require the services of a social worker, this can be arranged.
What if I need a diversional therapist?
Nat, who is completing her formal training, carries out a range of activities during the week with the residents as a group, but also develops individual programmes to suit the interests of each resident.
Do you have a hairdresser?
The hairdresser visits on a regular basis and if residents let staff know when they'd like to have their hair cut, staff can make a booking for the next visit.
Do you have a podiatrist?
A registered podiatrist visits the rest home on a regular basis and residents or family can let staff know if a booking is needed for the next visit. Staff will help residents with nail care between visits but do not cut toenails to avoid risk of injury.
Do you have a dietitian?
The meals are designed to provide the residents with an interesting, nutritionally balanced diet. The menu is reviewed by a registered dietician every two years, or more often if significant changes are made.
Is there a chaplain/spiritual advisor?
A short service is conducted once a month on a Thursday afternoon by the local Anglican minister. Other arrangements to provide for a resident's spiritual or religious needs can be discussed and will be supported as much as it is possible for us to do so.
