Moving Into Our Home

Upon admission to 1 Sewardstone Close, new residents are assigned a key worker for their first 6 weeks.

This is to ensure that there is consistency and continuity for residents during a time when things may seem uncertain to them. During this period we encourage new residents to get to know existing residents, as well as giving families and friends the opportunity to meet our team.

Our team spends time with new residents and their loved ones getting to know them and their life story so that we can tailor our care approach and make it specific to each individual. We work together with residents and their families to write a detailed care plan and to set goals that are close to the residents’ heart.

Our therapy team will discuss what rehabilitation goals each new resident would like to achieve and structures a rehabilitation timetable.  Each goal is recorded and reviewed on a regular basis.

Our Lifestyle Coach and Fitness Coach also meet with new residents to find out what activities they like to do both in and outside of the home setting. Our activities are structured to be meaningful and therapy based so that residents can learn, maintain and regain lost skills whilst doing something that they enjoy.
