Residential Care and Assisted Living

What is Residential Care?

Also known as personal care or assisted living, residential care is recommended for residents who need some assistance with daily activities but don’t require intensive nursing or rehabilitory care. Adults stay in a residential care home where they receive all meals, daily activities, housekeeping services, and 24-hour access to professional care.

Residential Care at Gracewell

At Gracewell Healthcare, we offer help and support with activities that range from personal hygiene to support at meal times, taking medications, getting dressed, taking a bath or going to the bathroom. Residential carers are available 24-hours a day and nurses are on call should an emergency arise. 

In addition to care, Gracewell handles the daily chores such as laundry, maintenance, housekeeping and cooking. At our residential care homes, residents can follow a maintenance-free lifestyle, and have more time to enjoy our activities and home-cooked meals.

Individualised Care

Gracewell tailors each resident’s care to their specific needs and preferences. When a new resident chooses a Gracewell residential care home, our team conducts an assessment to determine the level of care needed. We also talk to the resident and their family members about likes and dislikes, hobbies, their former career, and other personal preferences. All of this data is put into the resident’s Individualised Service Plan (ISP) to ensure a personalised experience. The ISP is reviewed regularly and updated as needed so the care always reflects the resident’s needs, even as it changes. Find a Gracewell Residential Care Home near you.

Visiting arrangements

As our residents are all particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all visits from relatives and friends, unless in exceptional circumstances. We do not take this decision lightly; reducing visitors into our homes will help protect the health and safety of residents which is our priority. Visits from healthcare professionals and for matters relating to health and safety continue with appropriate precautions.

Our intention is to follow public health advice to determine when visits will return to normal. We will continue to do our best to support residents to keep in touch with loved ones via other methods, such as phone and video calls, letters or emails in the short term.
