Our philosophy is to provide a stimulating, safe and caring environment that will meet the individual, physical and emotional and social needs of our residents. We encourage the developments of self-help and any potential for independent life style. Ultimately we enable our residents to receive long term care affording them an independent and satisfying lifestyle within the home. Our approach to care is based on respect for the resident as an individual and their need to be acknowledging as such.
At Abbeywood we realise that providing Quality Care is much more than simply providing high standards in accommodation, food and delivering individual attention i.e. physical needs, but to ensure that we provide an environment that enables Service Users to safeguard their individual rights, privacy, dignity, independence, choice and fulfillment. Quality Care at Abbeywood means caring for all the needs whether physical, social, emotional or psychological of all Service Users. Service Users are encouraged to participate in the development of their Personal Care Plans in which the involvement of family and friends may be appropriate and is greatly valued.
This will be achieved through a program of activities designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem, social interaction with other Service Users and with recognition of the following core values of care which are fundamental to the philosophy of our Home.
