Care Services

Residential care offers assistance with “activities of daily living.” These daily tasks can include help getting out of bed, bathing, using the toilet, dressing, walking or eating.

A person may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. Nursing care includes assessment, treatments, injections, and administration of medications that is carried out by a qualified person.

Dementia is the general term used to describe a set of symptoms that affect intellectual and social abilities, such as memory, problem solving and communication. Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia. Each person’s symptoms and progression differ. Consequently, there are many treatments and care options available for people diagnosed with dementia.

Respite care is a short-term option that gives caregivers a break. This category of care is available whether a person needs residential, nursing or dementia care and is for a predetermined amount of time. Respite care may range from a few days to a few weeks. It helps caregivers reenergize, reduce stress and address personal needs that may have become neglected because of care responsibilities. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

Persons with dementia whose symptoms started before they were 65 are often described as ‘younger people with dementia’ or as having young-onset dementia.

Palliative care is medical care that relieves the pain, symptoms and stress caused by a serious illness, and that helps to improve the Resident’s comfort as they near the end of their life.

Older persons presenting with complex mental health problems (e.g. severe depression, anxiety etc.) with specialist needs (e.g. increased frailty or complex co-morbid physical health conditions) that would benefit from more specialised residential service input.
