At Milkwood Care, we strive to provide unrivalled high standards of care in each of our individually beautiful homes. We strongly believe in the total well-being of each one of our residents and aim to provide a personal, caring environment, where everything is set up and driven to maximise their happiness and quality of life.
Our enthusiastic and dedicated staff are one of our most valued assets. Our fully-qualified team provide 24/7 care and we work hand in hand with local health professionals, who are on call for when we require specialist care. We train all our staff to the very highest standards, ensuring they are abreast of the latest techniques in dementia care.
Our support team are talented in their roles; every employee has a part to play in contributing our outstanding care.
Our rich schedule of regular and ad hoc activities gives our residents the opportunity to participate in their favourite pastimes, learn new skills, venture outdoors and keep their minds and bodies fit and alert. We have a creative and enthusiastic support team who devise a broad programme of activities, including reminiscence therapy, musical movement, flower arranging and other day trips.
First decide on the ideal location of your home. Take advice from doctors and social workers as to the best homes in the area. Look at websites and guides and pick out the ones that look the best. Don’t forget – you’re not just looking for a hotel, but for a way of life.
A move into a care home can cause financial problems and difficulties, and we can steer you through the process. The care fees we quote cover all your living costs for the room, food, heat, light, trips out etc. The local authority may pay all or part of the bill, but this all needs to be carefully considered.
Explore the options available to you. Ask about staff, training, activities and facilities. Look at the home and equipment, and talk to the manager, staff, residents and their relatives. In Milkwood Care Homes you’re welcome, so do just drop in.
