Aim and Objectives

Much has changed during the years since the Home was founded in 1930, but the Trustees remain committed to what has always been their fundamental aim:-

“To provide a comfortable and pleasant residential Home whilst, at the same time, encouraging all residents to feel at home in every possible sense and, as far as possible, to be free of the day to day cares and worries of life.”

To this end the Trustees’ Objectives are:-

  • To maintain and, whenever possible, improve the facilities of the Home to the highest standard with particular reference to the furnishings, decoration and garden,
  • At all times to provide adequate warmth and a well-balanced diet, offering choice at mealtimes and adapting to the personal preferences of residents,
  • To encourage residents to keep in touch with relatives and friends and to entertain them as visitors to their home,
  • To encourage residents to maintain and develop interests outside the Home whilst enabling them to be as independent as possible and allowing them to make their own choices and decisions about how they live,    
  • To enable residents to enjoy the comfort of their own room, as far as possible with the benefit of their own furniture and possessions,
  • To treat residents with respect and dignity whilst encouraging good relations between residents and the Manager and staff,
  • To provide the opportunity for residents to manage their own care, treatment and medication as far as is appropriate and possible.
  • To comply with the regulations of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (regulated activities) Regulations 2010 and the Care Quality Commission (registration) Regulations 2009.
