A home for life for those in need of nursing care
A new style of living in privacy and security with specialised care and nursing on hand
Rodwell House is a new purpose-built home for residents with nursing care needs. The home has been designed specifically to offer high levels of specialist nursing care to:
- older people with dementia type illnesses
- older people with physical frailty
- younger adults with physical disabilities
There are separate areas within the home for each of these categories so that each resident can live in a socially compatible group.
Nursing care within a home from home
Our spacious nursing suites provide all residents with a ‘home from home’ with the benefit of 24 hour nursing care and support. Our nursing care suites all have en-suite shower rooms and, in addition, they offer three important features not found in traditional nursing homes:
- Social space so that residents’ families and friends can spend time together in privacy and comfort
- Dining space so that residents can enjoy their meals in their own room, if they wish
- A kitchenette so that residents or their guests can prepare drinks and snacks
With registered nurses on-site 24 hours a day, the suites offer a permanent home where the residents do not need to worry about moving if their care needs increase. Our residents can rest assured they have a room for life at Rodwell House.
Thriving social and recreational activities
The home’s spacious dining rooms and lounges are all on the ground floor where staff offer a varied range of activities suitable for the differing needs of each individual group.
Residents can also benefit from our on-site hairdressing salon, sensory bathrooms and extensive landscaped gardens.
Our Care Ethos
Our ethos of Relationship Centred Care means we believe in really getting to know each of our residents and their life history so we can enhance and enrich their life with meaningful conversation and reminiscences.
We recognise that keeping in touch with family and friends is vital for our residents’ wellbeing so our social co-ordinators can help residents to access telephones, computers or Skype.
We also have several new technologies in place to help relatives themselves feel involved in the day to day lives of their loved ones in our home. Computerised care plans for our residents cover all aspects of daily living and relatives can register to view these plans and daily reports on line through our secure on-line system.
Our family-friendly community
Rodwell House’s family-friendly open door policy means relatives and friends are welcome to visit at any time and our children’s play area will help keep even the youngest members of the family occupied during their visits.
Rodwell House is family owned by Ernie and Dr Karen Graham, whose aims are to provide professional care and support in a homely environment. All the staff that work in Rodwell House are direct employees, thus ensuring continuity of care and facilitating a family atmosphere.
Our manager or senior nurse will visit a prospective resident in their home or in hospital and then produce a written proposal as to how Rodwell House could meet their needs. This is without obligation and provides a full range of information on which to make a decision.
Full details are available from the manager.
