Care

Who can Prospect House care for?

Under our registration with the Care Quality Commission, we can care for people over the age of 40. The overwhelming majority of our residents, though, are elderly people with physical or mental frailty.

Two areas of the home called the “Garden Rooms” and the “Bowling Green Rooms” offer intimate settings, where we care for older people whose primary reason for admission is their dementia.

For residents who have physical healthcare needs, the entire spectrum of general nursing care for all residents is provided by our own qualified nursing staff.

We also accommodate people who require only low levels of care or assistance and have no health or medical needs.

Every three months or so, we write to relatives of every resident, inviting them to meet with our Matron, Caroline Rowland, or one of her Deputies.  The purpose of these regular meetings is for our care staff, as well as relatives, to discuss and understand more about all aspects of the needs of each resident.  This is a really helpful way to guide us, to make sure we are doing all we can to meet individual needs.
