The residential care homes are designed to provide a safe, secure and fulfilling ‘home from home’ experience – delivering as much independence as possible to residents, secure in the knowledge that help is available around the clock should it be required.
Gittisham Hill House care home near Honiton, in Devon, is ideal for those who wish to retain a level of independence while having the reassurance of available support.
Individual, fully furnished ensuite bedrooms provide independence and freedom. Residents are encouraged to personalise them as they wish to help recreate that homely feel.
The common objective at all of care homes is always to deliver high levels of care and comfort in a safe and reassuring environment.
Visitors are welcome at all times and residents are free to entertain in their own rooms, the communal areas or the landscaped gardens.
Careful, personalised assessment
Before clients arrive, they will be assessed by a senior member of staff to ensure their chosen home can meet their needs. Following this consultation, a care plan is put together in conjunction with the client, their relatives, where appropriate, and staff. The plan enables clients to achieve realistic goals and attain maximum levels of independence within their own environment. This plan will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
What you can expect from the staff
The staff enjoy good working relationships with GPs, district nurses and professionals. Staff work on 24-hour rotas to provide round the clock care and support.
As in all residential homes, a team of support staff provides domestic services including cleaning and personal laundry. Nutritionally balanced meals are cooked by care home catering teams, headed by a qualified chef. Snacks and drinks are always made available throughout the day.
