Moving to Lowmoor Nursing Home

Dementia and Nursing Care Home

Moving a relative with complex needs into a nursing home can be daunting. We aim to get everything in place that we possibly can to make the transition into nursing care smooth. Here is what you can expect and plan for when moving into a nursing home.

Tailored Nursing Home Care Package

To achieve the best outcomes for each and every individual in our care, we involve loved ones and representatives from multi-disciplinary teams to form a care plan for new residents and ensure their needs are met. We will also get specialist equipment depending on the level of care that our residents require.

We always communicate openly and welcome the views and suggestions of relatives to ensure our residents get the best care. The care plan will be continually reviewed with the resident’s family to ensure each individual’s growing needs are always met.

Bringing Home Comforts to the Nursing Home

New residents who wish to bring any sentimental items or furniture to the nursing home can do so following a discussion with the Home Manager. All rooms can be individually decorated to suit the personal taste of each resident and ensure they are comfortable in their new home.

  • "Whilst visiting a family friend, the reception staff were very welcoming and the activities coordinator was very friendly. I noticed the staff were very attentive and caring and whilst I was sitting, I had a look through some photographs of the residents taking part in activities and I am amazed at how much is on offer. It is very comforting to know that such an effort is being made. Thank you."

  • "My partner came to Lowmoor from hospital suffering from dementia. She has been a resident since December. She is well looked after, clean and the staff interact well with her. When I visit I am made to feel welcome and am given regular updates as to her wellbeing. Couldn't ask for anything else from all the care home team."

  • "I have been visiting Lowmoor Nursing Home on a weekly basis for the last 2 years and find the home clean, homely and the staff very caring and friendly. The manager seems friendly and is always willing to talk through any problems concerning my brother-in-law. There is always some sort of activity going on, birthday party, afternoon tea, pancake day, Halloween etc. Anything to celebrate and they will do it. The residents love to join in the celebrations and those who are able, have a little dance. They even bring a singer in to entertain them. In my opinion, Lowmoor is a nice friendly home and I feel the residents are well cared for."
