Step by step process
Depending on the case either we will be contacted by social services, a private individual / family, or someone looking for care. If you are considering placing a loved one into care please read our advice for caregivers.
The next step is for our trained staff to assess whether you would be suitable to be a resident at our home. This usually involves meeting the client for a few hours for an informal chat. There will usually be 2 of us meeting you so we can get 2 opinions on your suitability. The assessment usually includes questions about:
- Your personal details such as name, address, date of birth, next of kin, religion, marital status.
- Your health including physical condition, mobility, dexterity, diet, skin and how many carers you would need throughout the day.
- Your medical history including allergies, medication, illnesses, doctors details.
- Your sleep patterns.
- Your background and how you like to be treated and what you are expecting at the home.
