Aims and Objectives
The Emilie Galloway Home Of Rest (Charity No. 205867) is managed by a board of trustees. The Trustees are all unpaid retired professionals, including retired solicitors.
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, encouraging all residents to feel at home in every practicable sense and, as far as possible, to be free of the day to day cares and worries of life
The Trustees Strive:
- 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 maintain contact with relatives and friends both electronically and personally by frequent visits to the Home.
- To encourage residents to maintain and develop interests outside the Home, 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.
