Types of Care
The staff at Morningside Care Home acknowledge that the older person who comes to live in the Care Home brings with them more than an illness or a condition when they are admitted. They bring with them their hopes , dreams, aspirations, ambitions, individual needs and a lifetime of memories and personal experiences.
Utilising a person centred approach to care means that each individual will be treated with respect and dignity allowing the development of a personal care plan tailored to each individual’s needs.
Via ongoing training provision and by recognising the skills and wisdom of the care home population, individuals are empowered to make a valuable contribution within their current residence. Despite disability and illness the community has been able to remove barriers and stigmas to redevelop the service, the mind-set, culture and environment to be able to provide the highest standards of care. In addition, multiple opportunities are available for interaction, rehabilitation, meaningful activity and learning to our residents living in this long-term skilled nursing facility. Therefore enhancing their journey through to the end of life and providing a true home from home.
The types of care include:
At Morningside Care Home we provide 24 hour nursing care for residents over the age of 65 who are living with a variety of complex physical and mental health issues and are no longer able to continue living within their own home.
