MISSION STATEMENT

Providing dignified care for the Elderly.

PHILOSOPHY

Kingswood Rest Homes are comfortable, compassionate and friendly homes for Residents and those who provide their care. We will provide:

A caring, home-like environment where the Older Person can live with the dignity, honour and respect they deserve as senior members of our community;

A safe haven for our Residents, responding to their changing needs and continually measuring and improving the quality of our services to them;

Support at all times by qualified staff that will provide the highest level of ongoing individualised care appropriate to the needs of each and every Resident;

Support and treatment for alleviation of pain and suffering;

Full and understandable explanations of individual treatment, medication and progress;

Access to doctors, counsellors and other health-care professionals whenever needed;

Individual recognition and respect for the privacy of the Residents and their personal possessions;

Encouragement of a feeling of personal security;

The encouragement and opportunity for each Resident to follow their own religious and cultural beliefs;

Individual recognition and respect for the privacy of the Residents and their personal possessions;

Stimulating contact with people of all ages and the opportunity to be involved in therapeutic and challenging activities within the home and / or community;

Through the “Spark of Life” Philosophy we will re-ignite the human spirit, boost self-esteem and bring joy to life in our Residents, ensuring that the Kingswood Rest Homes are a place where the staff love working, the Residents love living and their families and friends love visiting.
