Residental Care

Room Information

We have a variety of rooms;
a) Single with private ensuite
b) Single with shared ensuite between two rooms
c) Single with no ensuite

Allocation of rooms is generally on a suitability basis. Prospective residents will always be given a short time to decide whether the room being offered is suitable for their use. Residents accepting placement in a room which does not meet all their personal requirements may request transfer to a room of their choice as one becomes available, and will have the support required from staff to maintain their lifestyle while awaiting the room change. Room changes are never made, except in the following circumstances: The resident may request a change. The resident may experience a physical alteration in health status, which renders the present room unsafe and/or unsuitable for continued use. Planned alterations to the fabric of the building may necessitate the resident being relocated to an alternative room. Relocation would only occur following consultation with all concerned. Any resident requiring an alteration to any part of their room may make application to the Care Manager for consideration.
