Personal Care Services
Close liaison with relatives and professional agencies has ensured a very positive approach to care in a field where there can be a lot of negative feelings and attitudes.
We are registered with local GP practices, who have a particular interest in our work. Hospital appointments and Doctors referrals are treated in exactly the same way as when the person is in their own home. It is always preferable if relatives can accompany residents on any specialist or Hospital appointment.
Our goal for the residents who live in Spring Mount is to remain fit, mobile and active, our ultimate aim is for our residents to live the whole of the rest of their life with us. Inevitably some residents will require some nursing input at some point along the way. The district Nursing services provide any specialist nursing care required, as you would expect to receive in your own home.
Homoeopath, Chiropodist, Dentist and Optician
These are available from fully qualified therapists who will visit the home upon request. There are charges made for some of these services.
We regularly review every resident, at least once per month, and set new aims and objectives in conjunction with relatives and outside agencies. Relatives are encouraged to read the care plans whenever they wish and be actively involved in the Care Planning process by attending reviews or through discussions with the staff team.
