Our staff are trained to deal with all types of medical emergencies and are highly qualified to look after the needs of all our residents. If a particular complication means a different type of care, for example Dementia rather than residential, should be required, we will discuss this with you and your family and make every effort to make the transition as smooth as possible. As many of our homes provide residential and dementia, this may not mean leaving your current home.
Yes, all care homes must comply with the law and with the registering Authority’s own guidelines in order to guarantee a high standard of care. Every home also undergoes regular inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), after which a report is sent to the home with any recommendations and actions required. We will be happy to provide copies of individual reports; alternatively they view the results from the commission page.
Every incoming resident is assessed prior to admission to ensure they receive the care best suited for their needs. Your family or friends may be involved in this process if they so choose. An individual care plan is then created which sets out how staff will meet your needs. Care plans are reviewed monthly and will be updated when requirements change.
As a Residential Care Home, we could provide for someone with ‘mild’ dementia. In addition, The Glade Care Home is a home for life. If we admit a client whose health declines to be in the scope of advanced dementia or nursing, we will endeavor to meet their needs and maintain the care for any such individual for as long as we can, together with the help and support of outside specialists or professional bodies.
