Our staff are trained to deal with all types of medical emergencies and are highly qualified to look after the needs of all our residents. If a particular complication means a different type of care, for example Dementia rather than residential, should be required, we will discuss this with you and your family and make every effort to make the transition as smooth as possible. As many of our homes provide residential and dementia, this may not mean leaving your current home.

Yes, all care homes must comply with the law and with the registering Authority’s own guidelines in order to guarantee a high standard of care. Every home also undergoes regular inspections by the Care Inspectorate (CI), after which a report is sent to the home with any recommendations and actions required. We will be happy to provide copies of individual reports.

Every incoming resident is assessed prior to admission to ensure they receive the care best suited for their needs. Your family or friends may be involved in this process if they so choose. An individual support plan is then created which sets out how staff will meet your needs. Support plans are reviewed regularly and will be updated when requirements change.

Deciding to move into a care home or realising that your loved ones can no longer manage at home, is often difficult and upsetting. It is a very personal choice and requires a lot of preparation and consideration. Discuss the options with your family and loved ones, as well as your doctor, to decide if the time is right.
