There are two communal lounges in the home. One is a large lounge for those who enjoy sitting and chatting or watching television, the sun lounge is for those who prefer quiet recreation and reading.
There is a separate dining room where we encourage all residents to have their meals together and use this opportunity for socializing but those who prefer having their meals in their rooms are given the choice to do so.
At the rear of the home there is a spacious garden, which has seating around the fishpond where residents usually do planting and have their coffee in the summer months. A separate room is allocated for hairdressing and Occupational therapy sessions.
The physical environment of the home is designed for residents’ convenience and comfort. In particular, we will do the following:
- Maintain the buildings and grounds in a safe condition.
- Make detailed arrangements for the communal areas of the home to be safe and comfortable.
- Supply toilet, washing and bathing facilities suitable for the residents for whom we care.
- Arrange for specialist equipment to be available to maximise residents’ independence.
- Provide individual accommodation which at least meets the National Minimum Standards.
- See that residents have safe, comfortable bedrooms, with their own possessions around them.
- Ensure that the premises are kept clean, hygienic and free from unpleasant odours, with systems in place to control the spread of infection.
