Welcome to our website and thank you for visiting
For nearly 30 years, we have provided a home for up to 48 people, but we have recently increased this to 56.
Our aim is to achieve excellence in our nursing care and to extend that excellence to all we do. From the style and maintenance of the building and the standard of our housekeeping, to our activities and occupational therapy sessions; from the respectful manner shown by our staff, to the ability of every resident to choose what to do every day.
Importantly, we aim for excellence in the openness of communication between everyone involved in the care of people at Prospect House – residents, relatives, friends, doctors, nurses, social workers, carers and external agencies such as the Care Quality Commission, who regulate our work.
But the more difficult task – that of finding the best care home – is usually in the hands of the relatives of the potential resident. And we know that it’s frequently a stressful process.
Reading lots of information on a web site is unlikely to relieve the stress, or to guarantee that the right home gets chosen.
So we’ve included on our website the key points that most people tell us they want to know initially –
• Who can Prospect House care for?
• What do people who have had experience of Prospect House say about it?
• What are the fees?
• How can I find out more?
As we’re rather proud of the happy times we have, we’ve added a gallery of pictures of some recent activities too.
You might also like to read the latest report about us from our regulator – The Care Quality Commission – www.cqc.org.uk They rate us as “Good”
For more detailed information, please ask for our Guide which can be posted or emailed to you.
Best of all though, we’d like to invite you to visit us. You will be very welcome.
