We offer all kinds of care and Abbeycliffe to individually suit our care users needs.
Respite care, this is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
Residential care, where Abbeycliffe has a team of trained dedicated staff to provide an excellent standard of care for the elderly 24 hours a day.
We also offer a day care service, this service is open to any elderly person who would like to come down and spend the day with us.
Give us a call today and see just what we have to offer.
Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Respite provides a break for the family caregiver, which may prove beneficial to the health of the caregiver. 60% of family caregivers age 19-64 surveyed recently by the Commonwealth Fund reported fair or poor health, one or more chronic conditions, or a disability, compared with only 33% of non caregivers.
Our respite programs provide short-term breaks for families and other unpaid care givers of elderly people, allowing you to take a much deserved holiday with out having to be worried about the care of a loved one. Respite also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care, they will have the chance to make new friends, join in on day trips and take part in all our entertainment activities. So while you get a holiday, you can rest assured that so will your loved one.
We understand that some individuals may be apprehensive about being placed in Respite care, so why not take advantage of our day centre services and let your loved one slowly get used to the other staff and residents at Abbeycliffe before their Respite starts. We have found that our guests enjoy meeting new people and making new friends that many come back from time to time, even weekly, after their Respite stay to have a catchup .
We always encourage independence, yet will happily assist with activities of daily living. This includes washing, dressing, bathing, getting in/out of bed, going to the toilet, taking medicine and providing nutritional meals.
Relatives will feel comfort in choosing Abbeycliffe as the care home for their loved one, knowing that the caring and trusted team are always on hand to provide the elderly with the care and attention desired by all and ensure that their individual needs are met and they feel happy and content in their new home-from-home. This, in turn, will give relatives the peace of mind that they need at what is often a very difficult time in their lives — finding the right care home can be confusing and can leave you with mixed emotions.
Stephen, Moira, Fiona and their team are on hand to ensure your loved one will be as well cared for as he or she would be at home with you.
With our day care service we provide hot meals and entertainment throughout the day, this coupled with dedicated care staff to help out when needed, makes us the perfect choice.
Our day centre guests enjoy meeting new friends and joining in with our entertainment activities, while their full time carers back at home have chance to complete other tasks, or simply put their feet up.
Day care is a great way to familiarities an elderly person with the care home environment, prior to joining us on a short Respite stay at a later date, or even in the run up to them joining us full time as one of our residents.
Feel free to give us a call today and come and have a look around, it only takes a moment, but might make the world of difference.
