Residential care tends to be for older people who do not need specialist nursing care but may need assistance with day-to-day tasks such as eating, washing, dressing, getting in and out of bed – basics that would compromise quality of life for someone living independently in their own home.
At all Forest Care homes, our aim is to improve the quality of life for our residents by providing peaceful, comfortable, homely surroundings whilst encouraging them to lead a full and enjoyable life by providing care, social activities and other services suited to their specific needs and wishes.
Our residents each have a spacious, beautifully decorated private bedroom with en-suite and all necessary safety features, along with modern design features such as high-speed internet to help keep in touch with friends, family and the outside world. Food is nutritious and menus are based around personal preferences and dietary requirements.
Our residential care is aimed at providing companionship and giving people as much of their independence back as possible, with the added security of our dedicated, trained staff being on hand to provide 24- hour support.
All of our care homes are able to transport small groups of residents for day trips. Whether it’s a visit to the shops, having tea at the local garden centre or a day out at the seaside, this greater independence helps provide a better quality of life for our residents. The mobility vehicles can also be used by relatives if needed, subject to availability.
