Standard of Accommodation

 

The physical environment is designed for the residents’ convenience and comfort which includes maintaining buildings and grounds in a safe condition, ensuring communal areas are safe and comfortable and toilet, washing and bathing facilities are suitable for the residents in our care. We also have specialist equipment available to maximize and maintain residents’ independence.

To comply with safety requirements, for residents with dementia or who are particularly frail in health, we have radiator guards throughout our homes, all hot pipe work surfaces are protected as well to prevent contact burns.We also have anti scalding thermostatic valves on all baths and basins so that the hot water cannot be dispensed above 43 Deg C in temperature within our homes. We provide accommodation that meets, and aims to surpass, the national minimum care standards act, ensuring residents have safe and comfortable bedrooms with their own personal property around them.

We take all appropriate steps to make sure the homes are kept clean and hygienic and free from odours with suitable systems in place to control the spread of infection.

Residents’ rooms all meet the size requirements laid down by the Care Standards Commission regarding an existing Care Home.

Our residential homes have pleasant and safe external garden areas. These areas are secured for Residents safety by a boundary wall or fence. Entry and exit are permitted via security locks accessible to our staff to ensure residents’ safety at all times.
