Person-Centred Care Services
Nursing care is for people who require nursing care 24 hours a day. This will include people with long-term conditions, those who require rehabilitative or nursing respite care and people with physical disabilities. Our Nursing care is based on the Residents Care Plan. The Care Plan focuses on the individual and takes a holistic approach to make sure all needs are met. Care plans are an important aspect of care and family involvement in them is welcomed.
At Tanglewood we provide two types of dementia care:
Residential Dementia - 24-hour personalised care and assistance provided for those living with dementia
Nursing Dementia - 24-hour personalised nursing care to support residents who require qualified nursing care when living with dementia
Our staff are trained to support people living with dementia conditions. They understand there are different types of dementia and people living with dementia experience it in different ways. Through daily interactions, activities and compassion, our team learn about the person and help them feel settled and safe. We make sure people with dementia receive the quality of care that supports their well-being and gives their friends and family peace of mind.
Residential care is generally for people who require a low level of support and who do not have nursing or specialist care needs. Residential care may include assistance with washing and bathing and other activities of daily living. This type of care is primarily for those who are finding it difficult to cope at home or who need more help than their home carers are able to provide.
Respite care is generally 'short term' for people who are usually looked after by a relative or professional carer at home. It is also for people who were in hospital but require a period of convalescence care. Respite care allows individuals who may live alone to take a break that can be beneficial to them. Equally, respite stays give home-based carers the opportunity to take scheduled breaks and holidays throughout the year. Respite stays build a relationship between the individual, Home and staff that can be comforting should a more permanent stay become necessary. Many people arrange a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice.
