Residential Care Homes & The Holistic Approach

 In Blog

Residential homes offer lower-level care and support with day-to-day life for those who can no longer live independently. We operate a holistic approach to care; find out about the holistic care we provide in our residential home.

Continuing Independence in Residential Care

Residential homes offer support with personal care such as washing, getting dressed, toileting, administering medication, attending appointments and mobility. Living in a residential home takes away day to day chores which older people can struggle with such as cooking, cleaning and washing clothes as this is all done by staff.

Each resident has their own abilities and areas that they need support. Rather than giving everyone the same support and not allowing them the opportunity to do things for themselves, we get to know each person’s abilities and encourage independence where possible so we can support them in preserving their own abilities.

Residential Care Home Activities

Our Activities Co-ordinator plans regular activities with residents which can be adapted to each person’s abilities, so everyone is included. Activities are beneficial to encourage physical and mental exercise, creating a fun and engaging environment.

Bespoke Residential Home Bedrooms

We individually decorate our bedrooms to suit each resident’s personal taste including walls, window coverings, furniture and soft furnishings can be personalised to suit the residents’ personal preferences. Residents are also encouraged to bring furniture and personal items to make their new bedroom feel like a home from home.

Individual Residential Care Plans

At Newgate Lodge we work with residents and their loved ones to tailor a care plan to their specific needs, preferences and personalities and we recognise each resident as an individual. We also regularly review the care plan with the resident’s family to ensure that their growing needs are continually supported.
