The Gardens – Residential Care
‘Home from home’ experience
Retirement Villages’ 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.
The Gardens at Park Place is a 42-bed residential care home in Lincolnshire.
Staff respect the responsibility they have to give clients living with dementia the very best care, support and help to ensure they feel comfortable, secure and safe. Staff are specially trained to ensure they can provide the very highest level of care for all clients.
The interior design of the care home is based upon some of the latest expert thinking with colour coding, picture prompts and traditional features, helping clients feel a sense of familiarity and belonging.
An entire room in the suite has been decorated in bygone style with a traditional kitchen area, flock wallpaper and war time style ornaments. Many people with dementia have very strong memories of their youth and feel most comfortable when surrounded by objects from that time. The room is the ideal place for clients to reminisce and share their memories with other clients and staff.
Other communal areas in The Gardens have been well thought out to offer space that is both practical and attractive. There is a mix of areas to meet, watch television, play games, join in activities and entertain guests. There is also a hair salon.
All private rooms and communal areas are thoughtfully designed and decorated to provide a backdrop for clients to stamp their individuality on.
Residential care in a ‘home from home’ setting
Rooms are fully furnished but clients are encouraged to bring treasured possessions to personalise their living space.
Staff aim to build strong relationships, not just with clients but with their families and loved ones too, as appropriate. That helps give everyone involved peace of mind and ensures lines of communication remain open.
External relationships with professionals and local care and medical providers are also carefully fostered.
Staff are key to the warm atmosphere at The Gardens. Many clients are from Boston and Lincolnshire and so share a background and knowledge of the area as well as an endless supply of community stories and news, making this truly a ‘home from home’ care home experience.
As its name suggests, The Gardens enjoys easy access to Park Place’s pretty grounds where established trees provide shade, well-tended flower beds provide colour and the village pond provides the ideal place to sit back and relax.
