Our home is the residents home. Personal belongings and familiar furnishings can go a long way to making it feel comfortable right from the start. That’s why we encourage everyone to bring photographs, ornaments, even curtains, cushions and favourite chairs. The more familiar the room is, the more likely it will be that it will feel like home.
We have 46 single rooms in total. There are 10 single rooms on the ground floor that have been specially designed to offer the freedom of access to an enclosed garden, a dining room, assisted bathroom and with the added reassurance of nurse observed corridors.
On all floors throughout the care home there is a nurses station as well as a TV and coffee lounge.
Making our home your home
As we said, moving away from your own home setting can be much more comfortable if you have familiar belongings around you. All the rooms in the nursing home have a wardrobe, bedside cabinet, nursing bed, arm chair, TV aerial point and at least two double electric sockets. All rooms have en suite facilities. Residents are invited to bring curtains, light fittings, even chairs into the home if they prefer. The most important thing is to make their space their own.
We know that many of our residents appreciate being able to connect with the outside world. That’s why there is phone and internet access if required.
We are a dementia accredited home and our residents living with dementia live within Nightingale Suite.
