Sometimes referred to as personal care or assisted living, our residential care service is for people aged 65 and above who need extra support with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, taking medication, cooking, cleaning and general mobility which can no longer be managed safely within their own home.
Across each of our care homes we also have several residents who have chosen to live with us due to no longer wanting to live alone.
Whatever your condition or age, our residential care service provides a safe place for individuals who are struggling to carry out daily activities alone with ease. Alongside qualified carers, residents can live independently in an environment that is sympathetic to their needs and staffed by friendly and experienced team members who will provide support around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Personalised Residential Care
Within every Lovett care home, you’ll find a programme of activities to promote thriving community environments and encourage physical activity and mental stimulation. This includes regular outings within the community, gardening, craft activities, baking and so much more.
All our residents (whether they stay with us long term or for a short period of time as a part of respite or day care) also have their very own personalised care plan. This thorough document takes into account individual preferences, dietary requirements, likes, dislikes and more to ensure that each and every resident receives the high-quality, person-centred care they deserve.
For family members, residential care provides peace of mind that a loved one is being cared for in safe and loving surroundings.
Who needs residential care?
Residential care is suitable for individuals who would benefit from 24-hour support from qualified carers. In many cases, family members (or the person themselves) will identify that living independently at home isn’t possible anymore and more help is needed to keep them safe.
Alternatively, a person living alone may struggle with loneliness and isolation. These are very real problems that can have a whole host of adverse effects on a person’s mental and physical health. Making the decision to move into a residential care home often leads to a less lonely, more fulfilled life, as a person is able to interact daily with their carers and other residents.
Put simply, residential care unlocks independence, particularly for elderly individuals who may be struggling with living alone, by giving them a safe place to live, socialise and thrive.
Supporting Local Families
At Lovett Care we believe that care homes are for living in, which is why our homes are equipped with the best modern facilities and provide comfort to create a home from home atmosphere. Each resident is treated as an individual, with regularly updated care plans, customised menus depending on dietary requirements and activities to promote a healthy, happy and enriched lifestyle.
