We introduce the nursing team and fellow residents and a registered nurse is assigned to you.

Health Care Assistants support the nurses in providing the care prescribed for you.

We have a GP service with identified doctors who visit on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Our nursing staff are able to access urgent and emergency medical services 24 hours a day.

It's important to us that we understand your likes, dislikes and preferences. We may ask you and your family some questions to help us get to know you better. We use the ‘This is me’ document, which provides an easy and practical way of recording details of:

  • your cultural and family background
  • events that are or have been important to you
  • people and places from your life
  • your preferences
  • how you like to spend your time

Find out more about “This is me” on the Alzheimers website.
