Frequently Asked Questions

How do you choose a good care home?

We highly recommend you take the time to see the care home, discuss your options with the care home manager and the team and then make the decision for either yourself or your elderly loved one.

To choose a good care home you will be on the lookout for a care home that offers exquisite care, has high living standards and would feel like a second home without causing any discomfort.

The types of care offered at a care home as well as driving proximity and location convenience are most of the time the main deciders when it comes to choosing a care home.

What's the minimum stay at a care home for respite care?

The length of respite care in a care home can vary depending on the needs of the resident.

We offer a minimum of 4 weeks of respite care in all our Forest Care homes. Residents who come for respite care usually continue to become permanent residents with us, because they enjoy their stay so much!

Please contact us by email enquiries@forestcare.co.uk to enquire about our respite care and availability.

What types of activities do you have at Holly Lodge?

Our activities team provides a full and varied activities programme for our residents in our Farnborough care home. These activities typically take place between 10 am – 4 pm every day. The activities team use care plans and individual residents’ histories and hobbies to plan respectful activities that enhance lives, encourage socialisation and stimulate memories. This is an important part of our person-centred care.

For those who are less able to participate in group activities, we provide 1:1 activities. Residents are free to choose where and how they spend their time. This includes socialising as much (or as little) as they wish to.

See our Holly Lodge activities here and our Cedar Lodge activities here.

What is the difference between residential and nursing care?

Residential care and nursing care in a care home vary and this is usually based on the level of care that the residents require.

Residential care is ideal for individuals who need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, meals, and general supervision. Residential care homes offer a supportive environment, providing accommodation, meals, and social activities. This type of care is usually sought by elderly who have lost their partner and live on their own or don’t have much of a social circle and would benefit from companionship.

Nursing care in a care home is focused on offering a higher level of medical support. Nursing homes such as our home Holly Lodge provide 24-hour nursing care delivered by qualified nurses. Residents in nursing care homes often have more complex medical needs requiring ongoing monitoring, medical attention, and support with specific health conditions.
