My client is the UK’s leading independent provider of specialist adult care services.
Their aim is to provide the right support in the right home for all the individuals they accommodate.
With community-based residential care settings, as well as a network of supported living services, they support adults over the age of 18 with autism, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and behaviours that challenge. They also offer a range of residential and nursing care settings for older people with varying levels of need.
This Care Home is a purpose built care home for older people and is designed specifically to meet the needs of older people requiring nursing or specialist dementia care. The home is conveniently situated in a residential area of Bentilee, Stoke on Trent and is easily accessible from the M1 and via national rail services. The home provides residents with extensive communal space within a modern, homely and supportive environment. Each bedroom, which has the added benefit of en-suite facilities, is designed to ensure comfort and safety and the friendly and welcoming decor helps residents feel at home. There is a tranquil, fully enclosed garden, which offers a relaxing atmosphere and a quiet retreat for our residents and our dedicated team ensure we meet the resident’s individual care and social needs. There is an open visiting policy and families and friends are always welcome.
