Philosophy of Care
The home is registered for 53 beds, and many with shared and private en-suite bathrooms. All of our rooms are individually styled and tastefully decorated.
All residents are encouraged to make full use, where possible, of the excellent communal spaces at Wellbeing Care, including a large conservatory, garden, lounge and dining area.
These communal areas have been designed to guarantee a superb standard of living, and feature modern facilities and equipment in order to provide a safe and comfortable environment.
The Cottage Nursing Home is also pleased to offer the following additional services to their residents, some of which are chargeable:
The Home can arrange for newspapers of your choice to be delivered daily from the local newsagent. The newsagent will send an account to you for payment.
A hairdresser visits the Home every week. You may of course continue using your regular hairdresser but if you wish to use the services of our visiting hairdresser please advise a member of staff who will then let your request be known to the hairdresser. The hairdresser will advise you of the charges.
Chiropody services are provided to those who are assessed as requiring this service from the NHS. You may employ your own private chiropodist who may visit the Home or arrange an appointment at his premises. If you are assessed not to require a chiropodist the staff will offer the help you require.
The Local Health Centre provides medical care to all the residents. A GP visits the home on an as and when required basis but normally you would be visited by the GP within a week of your admission. If you require seeing a doctor outside the normal visiting time the Staff will arrange a visit. G-Docs provide an out of hour’s service.
