The home provides accommodation and nursing care for residents in studio and one bedroom suites.
The home is divided into two social groups, one for physical frailty and the other for people with dementia/mental illness.
Full 24 hour nursing care is available for all residents, which enables most people to be accommodated within the scheme for life. Residents’ spouses can also be accommodated, so that couples can stay together even when one develops the need for on-going care.
One of the philosophies at the heart of Graham Care is to provide relationship-centred care. Fostering and nurturing relationships between residents, their family and friends and the healthcare professionals who work in and visit the home is an integral part of residents care.
The in-house care provided by Woodchurch 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.
