The home is a 3 storey with a shaft lift providing access to each floor. We have a dining room, 2 lounges and an orangery/conservatory with direct access onto a patio and into the garden. We have off road parking.
Garland House provides residential care for both male and female residents above the age of 65 years. The services provided are for residents who can maintain varying levels of independence. Nursing care is not provided. We aim to care for each resident in the manner expected of a caring relative.
Garland House aims to assist residents to manage their own lives to the greatest attainable extent. We want to enable them to maintain their dignity, independence and previous life style as much as possible. Staff at Garland House offer personal care for the residents. This care is planned and assessed on a regular basis via the residents care plan ‘Service User Plan’. The needs of the resident and assistance required are reviewed and adjusted following consultation with the resident.
Facilities are present for residents to be assisted with bathing or showering if they require help. We encourage residents to be as independent as possible and to live their ‘preferred life’. This is supported wherever possible by staff after discussion with the resident and the completion of risk assessments.
The home is a happy place where residents will be encouraged to have as high a quality of life as possible. Garland House staff will offer every assistance in meeting this objective. This means that residents will be encouraged to make decisions regarding themselves and assistance will only be offered to carry out decisions if it is necessary. This may entail the acceptance of all concerned to a degree of risk. Residents who wish it will be encouraged to continue their interests outside the home.
Residents will choose how they wish to be addressed. Although first names are often used between residents and staff this should not be automatic.
Residents have the right to personal care that is discreet, sensitive and appropriate to their individual need. Staff are trained in good care practices; they understand and share these values and all care is based around those principals.
Everyone is treated equally and with respect, they are valued as individuals.
