Residential care is suitable for those who need support day-to-day and are no longer able to live alone. Our staff are available at all hours of the day and night to provide assistance with daily tasks and activities. Receiving residential care within our luxury residence allows individuals to live their lives the way they want to by making use of the many facilities and social opportunities, without having to worry about the stresses of managing a household.
Our team takes care of everyday mundane duties such as cooking, cleaning and washing and administrative tasks. From helping someone with their personal care, providing aid with daily tasks and mobility, and managing medication residents no longer have to struggle as our compassionate team is here to make life enjoyable.
Nursing care is a suitable option of care for individuals who require around-the-clock medical support in addition to personal care. Residents at our nursing home receive the greatest standards of nursing care during the day and night. Our experienced team of nurses are dedicated to ensuring all well-being needs are met in a safe and supportive environment. In the nursing unit rooms are equipped with specialist nursing equipment such as profiling beds, hoists and nurse call systems for maximum ease and comfort.
Our nursing staff can look after those with physical disabilities, long-term health conditions or illnesses and those with high dependency needs. Our trained team will deliver the best person-centred care to help support residents in reaching their full potential and live a content life, no matter the challenges they face.
Dementia is a progressive condition that affects parts of the brain which often hinders one’s memory, thinking abilities and social skills. Residents living with dementia can continue to live a fulfilled life with the help of our specialist dementia care service. We provide specialist care and support in order to better a person’s life while helping to retain their independence for as long as possible.
We know that every resident with dementia requires a different level of care, as there are different types and stages of the condition. If a resident’s care requirements change over the course of their stay, we will reassess their situation and alter care plans to ensure the right care is always being given.
Respite care is a type of care that is available on a short-term basis, usually a few weeks or months depending on the person’s circumstances. Respite care is a great solution for full-time carers who are in need of a break from their caregiving responsibilities. Our staff can provide the care a person needs until they are ready to return home.
Respite care is also an appropriate care option for those who have recently had an operation or illness, and are not quite ready to continue with their usual routines. Prospective residents can use respite care as a way of trialling a care home for a few weeks before making the decision whether to move in on a permanent basis.
Providing Our Support During a Time of Need
Knowing when is the right time to move a loved one to a care home can be a stressful time. It may be that you have noticed a loved one is finding it difficult to upkeep their household, they are unsteady on their feet or that they are showing symptoms of memory loss. We want to make the process that little bit easier and welcome you into our home to discuss the care requirements of the individual seeking care.
The extensively trained team at The Ashton understand that every resident requires varying levels of care that’s why we always evaluate residents closely following their admission in order to develop a suitable care plan. Residents will continue to be assessed to ensure the correct care is always given. Our goal is for prospective residents and their loved ones to have a better understanding of the professional care available at our care home in Hinckley and feel confident they are making the right decision.
