Philosophy of Care
It is our intention that the service we give provides a level of care that promotes the residents' quality of life.
We aim to be positive and respectful in caring for our residents and identify their needs and abilities as being individual and unique.
We strive to promote the residents' quality of life so that it is comfortable and meaningful.
Personal experience and well being are important issues to be aware of when seeing the residents as individuals. We subscribe to the principle of "normalisation" to ensure individuality, personal choice, respect for rights and values, and involvement in the care.
