Personal Care

 

  • Our philosophy is to offer a carefree lifestyle away from the burdens of household management. It has always been our main priority to provide kindly and personal care to enhance the dignity, privacy and independence of our residents, and we actively promote an individual’s independence.
  • Elmwood has a team of trained staff, who aim to know the residents and their relatives personally, providing continuity of care.
  • We are well supported by doctors in our area. We also have the services of visiting hairdressers and physiotherapists & chiropodist.
  • Each resident has a designed care plan which aims to maximise social, physical and intellectual capacity.
  • We fully embrace the idea that relatives or friends are part of the caring process and encourage them visiting the residents.
  • A telephone system operates throughout the building allowing contact with relatives and friends. Residents can also contact kitchen, care staff or other residents should they wish. A call bell system is also available if the resident cannot use the phone.
  • It is part of our duty to cater for all special need of the elderly such as dietary, immobility, hearing or sight problems. Other needs of the residents such as ethnical and/or religious needs will be considered as and when possible.
