Hawkinge House provides accommodation for residents with significant care needs in studio suites.
The development is divided into three social groups for physical frailty and various types of dementia/mental illness.
Full 24 hour nursing care is available in-house so that most residents can have a home for life within the scheme. Residents’ spouses can also be accommodated, to allow couples to stay together even when one develops the need for on-going care.
The in-house care provided by Hawkinge House is planned and monitored by Registered Nurses at all times. This enables most residents to be accommodated within the scheme for life.
The philosophy behind our nursing care is that residents should be able to live in the home with dignity and have the respect of those who support them. They should be entitled to live a full and active life and be given the fundamental right to self-determination and individuality in order to achieve their full potential. We believe that this is best achieved by sensitive recognition and nurturing of that potential in each individual and understanding that this may change with time. In order to ensure that this happens, each resident’s care is planned individually.
We seek to ensure that the care in the home is not institutionalised by the requirements of the staff and that these basic rights are accorded to all residents in our care without discrimination between one resident group and another. The programmes of activities have been designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction with other residents.
