At Sandown Nursing Home we believe that everyone who lives here deserves the best. We want to help you to enjoy life to the full while we take care of the rest.
Palliative care is the active holistic approach to care for residents with advanced progressive illness. Management of pain and other symptoms and the provision of psychological, social and spiritual support is paramount.
Our qualified staff provide caring assistance with a range daily activities such as dressing and grooming. We believe that our care team are enablers to each and every resident to allow each resident to maintain as much independence for as long as possible to help to achieve the best outcome to meet their individual needs.
Meals and mealtimes are an important part of the Home’s day not only as a part of a balanced diet to maintain good health but as a time to gather socially for our residents and our care team who are there to assist. We offer a variety of diets and supplements to meet the individual needs and preferences of the residents.
We respect each resident’s right to make informed choices about their care and treatment. We understand that this can become increasingly difficult to manage on their own as their health deteriorates. Our nurses are here to support and assist with all their nursing and medication needs and be a voice for them when they are unable to speak for themselves.
Being occupied and having your time fulfilled is an important part of everyone’s life. A social event is always something to look forward to, to enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on. We have a dedicated activities co-ordinator whose mission is to help residents maintain existing interests and develop new interests as needs change.
We understand that each elderly person who has nursing and care needs would like to remain in their own home for as long as possible. By offering respite care we can provide a service that allows the resident and their carers to have regular breaks, so that they can then return to their own home refreshed to help maintain their independence for longer.
