   Advice and information

First steps to take

Now that you have chosen residential care, it is always difficult to know where to start. As with most things in life, it all depends on your circumstance. Many would assume that a residential care home or hotel only cater for the wealthy, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Many of our residents have financial support and backing from their local authority which allows them to continue to enjoy our services without the need for any significant funds of their own.

That aside, if you are a private individual with your own funds, your first and really only step you need make is to contact us directly, either through our website or directly to the Hotel in question. You are more than welcome to visit us at any time of day for a viewing at any of our hotels, but we do ask that you call ahead to ensure the manager of the home is available to give you a guided tour, although there is no problem if you happen to be passing through, we will always endeavour to accomodate you.

Upon your application to stay with us, our staff will need to produce a needs or care assessment. This is to evaluate the specific needs of the potential resident to ensure that our Hotels can provide the care required. Residential care (such as ours) is applicable in most cases, especially if your needs are things such as help with washing, dressing or going to the toilet. Even those with dementia or more specific problems such as incontinence are still welcome at our Hotels, but as with any resident, a care assessment by the manager will always take place first to ensure we can provide the exact care you need.

Always remember that if you can't find what you're looking for here, you can contact us directly and we'd be more than happy to help guide you.
