The Elms care Home has been designed using dementia focussed research to ensure that the environment is suitable and enhances the lives of the residents, giving them choice and ability to retain a sense of identity. Staff provide the support and reassurance to reduce confusion, anxiety and frustration. Activities are facilitated that all abilities can take part in and enjoy and many reminiscence resources are present. We understand and adapt our approach as needs change.
Caring for a loved one can be challenging and at times a break can be needed to re-charge or a life event may bring the need for short term care which we can provide, whether it is a few nights or a few weeks. Staff are trained to encourage residents and are skilled at getting people back on their feet after an illness or period in hospital before returning to their own home.
The Elms Care Home specialises in caring for residents who require one-to-one personal care. Our highly trained carers offer specialist and complex personal care around the clock.
The Elms Care Home has facilities to meet all levels of care, whilst promoting independence and respecting dignity. A thorough pre-admission assessment takes place to ensure a good handover and that everything is in place prior to admission. Staff will provide assistance and support with all aspects of daily living and mobility where needed following person-centred care plans formulated in collaboration with the residents and family.
