Whetstone Grange Services

ResidentialResidential care is care that is provided by trained care assistants rather than nurses. Personal care is designed for those who need assistance with what we call daily living activities; for example washing, dressing, eating and mobility. Our care focuses on maintaining people’s dignity and creating a warm homely environment where they feel a strong sense of belonging and enjoy a great quality of life. Privacy and choice are high on our priority list, and personal care is tailored to meet individual needs. Qualified staff,  giving 24-hour care are on hand to help you maintain the life you’d like to lead, adapting as your needs change. The care and assistance we offer is assessed and reassessed on an ongoing basis with both relatives and residents.

 

Respite Everyone needs a break from time-to-time.

Respite care enables home based carer’s the opportunity to take scheduled holidays or breaks throughout the year. This may be for a few days or a few weeks. Carer’s can relax with peace of mind knowing that their relative is in a safe and homely environment with the provision of 24-hour person-centred care.

 
 

Dementia One in five people over the age of 80 experience the symptoms of dementia. The effects of dementia can be very distressing for the person concerned and their family and friends. It can cause changes in both character and behaviour, as well as affecting memory, speech and understanding. Our person-centred care recognises each person as a unique individual and addresses their own spiritual and physical needs, with both reassurance and support. A person with dementia is, first and foremost, a person – unique and with a rich history of experience, abilities, skills, knowledge, preferences, desires and personality. By responding to the individual and supporting what they can do, we look for opportunities to build on their strengths and find ways to compensate for the losses brought about by their illness.Our staff are provided with on-going opportunities for learning and development to ensure that the care we provide is not only the kindest possible, but is also delivered from a sound, professional knowledge base.

 

Physical Disability With increasing age comes increased likelihood of disability. This is because as people live longer and do not encounter fatal diseases, their illnesses are chronic instead. An important part of our work is ensuring that the person we care for has the best quality of life possible through enhanced independence and dignity. Technical aids and appliances, as well as the right modifications to the homes are in place to meet the needs of those who have a physical disability

 
 

Palliative Care Our home offers the crucial support needed by individuals, their family and friends in these difficult times. Knowing, understanding and respecting Residents’ wishes from the outset and when their health starts to deteriorate allows us to provide the highest quality of care and attention that is given to those nearing the end of life with the support from our GP’s and District Nursing Team. This includes pain relief, physical and psychological care, as well as emotional support, empathy and compassion shown to everyone – the individual, their family and loved ones.
