Prior to admission each person is assessed to ensure our confidence in being able to meet individual needs. Thus ensuring all Staff are trained and familiarized with all aspects of care according to these needs.
We have both long term and short term beds, and we are happy to do admission on any day of the week. Prior to admission a Contract of Care should be signed by resident and/or their representative.
Long Term Admission:
It is really important to us, that residents choosing to come to us are happy. Therefore, it is important that discussion take place to ensure that we can offer you a service that meets all your needs. It is necessary and very helpful to meet with a resident prior to admission. This meeting would take place where the resident is at present, that be that in the community or hospital environment. It is equally vital to note that following admission one should allow time to settle in and get used to the new surroundings. We are also aware that sometimes distance may be a deterrent to assessing an admission. In this instance we would ask to speak to other Health Care professionals who would be able to inform us as to requirements. Everybody is different and it is a learning experience for us all, whilst endeavouring to learn a person’s care needs to include likes and dislikes.
Short Term Admission:
Prior to admission, it is important to discuss ones needs so as to ensure that we can offer an adequate service to meet those needs. We also invite a potential resident where possible to come and take a look around our home. This is optional for short term care, and is recommended where possible.
We do not recommend emergency admission. However, in certain cases they may be accepted but the decision determining such an admission would be decided at the time. Such exception may be following contact from a GP and/or A&E.
