Types of Care

What care is available at Forest Care homes?

Nursing Care

Nursing care means that a resident has access to qualified and expert nursing care 24 hours per day. It’s typically for people with disabilities or an ongoing medical condition, or for anyone requiring extensive rehabilitative care e.g. someone recovering after a stroke. Nursing care doesn’t mean being confined to bed and residents can take part in activities and socialise with others as much as they choose or are able to. All of Forest Care’s homes provide nursing care.

Residential Care

Residential care tends to be for residents who do not need specialised nursing care but may need assistance with day-to-day tasks such as washing, dressing, getting in and out of bed – basics that would compromise quality of life for someone living independently in their own home. At Forest Care homes our staff take care of all those tricky tasks whilst encouraging residents to lead a full and enjoyable life within a safe environment and participating in social activities. Rowan Lodge provides residential care.

Dementia Care

This is specialised care for residents living with dementia. Dementia covers a range of symptoms, which can include confusion and problems with memory and communication. It is not a disease in itself, rather a set of symptoms accompanying conditions that affect the brain, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s Disease. Dementia is progressive which means that symptoms will gradually get worse and this will affect each person in a different way. Holly Lodge and Rowan Lodge are both able to accommodate residents with dementia.

Respite Care

Respite care is designed to provide a short break, either to the person requiring care or for the relative or friend providing care on a daily basis. Respite care is also suitable for anyone who needs convalescence, and is available at all of Forest Care’s homes.
