Care plans are compiled to identify each individual’s needs. The level of care required for each resident is recorded, risk assessments are carried out, and ongoing daily monitoring and reviews are recorded to ensure a continuity of care for each individual. Formal and informal reviews are held regularly. Our aim is always to work closely with the residents and relatives to provide the best possible care, inform and update of any changes in a resident’s well-being, and listen to any worries or suggestions that they may have.
