The Homestead is registered to provide care to 20 elderly residents, specialising in dementia.
Offering long term and respite facilities for those in need of our specialist knowledge. Our aim is to provide a safe, secure, comfortable, homely atmosphere thus enabling each individual resident a fulfilling and meaningful life.
Care, where it is required, will be skilful and discreet, allowing maximum dignity and privacy. Aspects of behaviour resulting from mental frailty are approached with appropriate responses from staff that have been trained to provide an environment of peace and tranquillity.
We use music therapy, reminiscence and validation to promote feelings of self-worth in each individual resident. Our activity organiser provides a program of stimulation to all who wish to take part, whilst suitable outings are arranged to keep links with the community. Members from our local Church visits every month to hold a service for those wishing to attend.
All of our residents are carefully assessed before entering The Homestead making sure that we are able to meet their needs. District nursing, local GP surgery and associated Community Services frequently visit.
Central to the ethos of The Homestead is the intention to provide our residents with dignity and understanding, thus enabling them to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. Relatives have peace of mind and security in the knowledge that their loved ones are cared for appropriately and have a home for as long as they wish.
We have a delightful garden that is secure and safe and in the warmer months it is used very regularly by the residents for morning coffee and afternoon tea. During the spring months, residents are actively encouraged to be part of the potting of new bulbs in the containers and to maintain them with the help of the onsite gardener.
All prospective residents are assessed on an individual needs basis regarding care fees. If you would like to find out more information please contact us to discuss your needs and we will be more than happy to arrange a viewing of the home and answer any other questions you may have.
