Our spacious new Greenwich Gardens care home has been designed to be just that – a real home, where the choices and preferences of our residents are paramount.
It starts with our layout, which is very different from the care facilities of old. Our care home residents live in smaller family-like groups of no more than twelve. Each group’s area is decorated in different colours, and most of our bright and friendly individual rooms are well positioned for views and sunshine.
Every room has easy access to the group’s shared kitchen, dining and lounge area. This cosy and comfortable living space feels just like stepping into a family home, where residents, their family and friends can relax together.
When it comes to dining, residents have real options – whether to have their main meal during the day or evening, and the time they’d like to have it, as well as a choice of menu options. They can decide how and where they dine – together in their group’s dining room, or with residents in other groups; in their own rooms, if they feel tired or unwell; or with friends and family at the village’s Atrium Café.
And we’re throwing away the rulebook for things like showering (how often and when); times to rise in the morning and go to bed at night; and activities to take part in. These and other choices are firmly in residents’ hands.
And, as you’d expect, there is 24-hour support and assistance on hand from familiar, caring and professional staff in a safe and secure environment.
