We strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all Residents within a warm and caring atmosphere. In doing so, we are sensitive to the Residents ever-changing needs and do all in our power to meet them, towards

Nutrition

Residents are able to choose daily from a selection of meal options that are freshly cooked by the home’s chef.

Much emphasis is placed on choice. We liaise closely with the community dietician to meet each individual’s nutritional needs. We have meals originating from all over the world and influences from many different cultures. We can also provide for special dietary requirements and halal food.

Core Values

Privacy

All care staff within the Prime Care Group are appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standard of care. A continuous staff-training programme is implemented to ensure that these high standards are maintained in line with the latest initiatives and developments in care practices as may be laid down in appropriate Legislation, Regulations and the Quality Care Commission Guidelines.

Choice

We aim to help residents exercise the opportunity to select from a range of options in all aspects of their lives. Providing meal’s which enable residents to decide for themselves where, when and with whom them consume food and drink of their choice. Offering a wide range of leisure activities from which to choose. Enabling residents to manage their own time and not to be dictated to by set communal timetables.

Fulfilment

We want to help our residents to realise personal aspirations and abilities to all aspects of their lives. We provide a range of leisure and recreational activities to meet the needs of all residents and to stimulate participation. We respond appropriately to the individual, intellectual, artistic, and spiritual values and practices. We respect religious ethnic cultural diversity.

Independence

We’re aware that our residents have given up a good deal of their independence in entering a group living situation. We regard it as all the more important to foster remaining opportunities. We provide, as tactfully as possible, human or technical assistance when, it is needed. We maximise the abilities our residents retain for self-care, for independence interaction with others, and for carrying out the task of daily living unaided.

Dignity

Disabilities quickly undermine dignity, so we try to preserve respect for our resident’s intrinsic value. We help residents to present themselves to others, as they would wish through their own clothing, their personal appearance and their behaviour in public. We tackle the stigma from which our residents may suffer through age, disability and status.

Civil Rights

Being old, having disabilities and residing in a home can all act to deprive our residents of their rights as citizens. We, therefore, work to maintain our residents place in the society as fully participating and benefiting citizens. We ensure that residents have the opportunity to vote in elections and to bring themselves fully on the democratic options. We preserve residents full and equal access to all elements of the National Health Service.
