Other Services at Hope Care Home

We aim to provide a range of services within the Hope, to ensure that every one of our residents feel at home.

Our hairdresser has her own Salon on the ground floor and offers her services on Tuesday (all day) and Thursday (afternoon). However, if residents prefer their own hairdresser, they are more than welcome to come and use the salon at other times.

Again, we have a podiatrist that visits the care home once a week, but residents are able to have their own podiatrist visit if they prefer.

One of the real strengths of the home is our full time activities coordinator. With the mix of residents in mind, she devises a weekly programme which changes from week to week, this includes regular activities such as cookery, arts and crafts and light exercise sessions. Most of these happen in our dedicated room on the ground floor. This allows residents from all areas of the home the opportunity to meet up. The room also houses our very own piano. This is available to residents who play, and is also used regularly in concerts by visiting performers.

Birthdays are a regular occasion in the home and our chef takes great pride in his special birthday cakes for the parties.

Anglican services are held three times a month for those wishing to attend.

Medical Backup

Most of our residents are registered with the local surgery. They get to become familiar with the GP’s from the surgery, who visit the home once a week but will also visit at anytime if needed.

If new residents are local and their GP is happy to keep them on their list we are happy for this arrangement.

We use the local out of hours team if necessary.
