What services do we offer at Taptonholme Care Home?

The Service
We provide 24 hour care for our residents. Every resident has a detailed Care Plan drawn up which is agreed with the resident and his or her relatives. This sets out the individual’s requirements, social, dietary and medical.  The Care Plan is supervised by each resident’s own personal key-worker who has the responsibility for ensuring that the resident’s needs are met.

All meals are provided in addition to regular drinks and snacks when required. We encourage residents to live their lives as if they were in their own home. If they become ill, they are cared for in their rooms on a 24 hour basis.

Doctors and District Nurses visit the home regularly as necessary and dental care is also arranged. A nurse call system is provided in every room and area of the home and this is constantly monitored by staff on duty.

Activities
We arrange excursions, entertainment and social activities for residents. One member of staff is employed exclusively to organise activities daily. These are tailored to suit the needs and interests of individual reasidents and include quizzes, sing-alongs, chairobics, handicrafts, reminiscences and other games.

Staff will always shop for or accompany those who are able to get to the local shops at Broomhill which are two minutes walk away.

Trials, Respite Care and Day Care
Respite care is also available plus trial care periods for those wishing to try the facilities before making a long term commitment.   Many of our residents were first introduced to the Home by taking advantage of the respite care offered. In addition we provide day care either on a regular basis or as a means of trying out the home.

Caring Staff

We have a dedicated team of full time and part time staff supervised day to day by the manager. Our staff are here for the comfort, care and convenience of the residents and receive on going NVQ training to ensure they can handle any eventuality. More than that however, they will become friends and companions. Our philosophy is to employ caring people rather than employing people to care.

What it costs
The weekly rates are variable depending on room size. The rates include all food, accommodation, heat, light and care facilities. There are no extra charges. There is no charge for social activities including excursions. We can discuss available funding arrangements with you.
