Choosing Your Care Home

We understand how difficult it can be to find the right care home for yourself or a loved one. Our specialist team are on hand to support you through the whole process, providing expert advice and ensuring the transition into Heyfields is as smooth as possible.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest standards of person-centred care for older people, within safe, comfortable and homely environments. Our teams will put the residents at the centre of what they do and the care is tailored around the person’s needs – everything from their daily meals to the activities they enjoy.

The transition into a care home can be a daunting and unsettling process. Our aim is to minimise change for residents and care for them just as a loved one would. With an open- door policy, we always welcome relatives and friends to regularly visit the home.

New Residents are only admitted on the basis of a full assessment being carried out by trained staff to which the Resident, his/her representatives have been a party. We are committed to providing the very best quality of care for our residents whether for general nursing care, physical disablement or terminally ill for which we are registered by the CSCI.

Resident Safety

Your safety and that of our residents is imperative to us here at Heyfields. You need to feel safe and reassured that if something happens our trained staff can be notified and respond quickly wherever you are throughout our nursing home.

We have invested in a Medicare Wireless Nurse Call System which is installed throughout all rooms and areas. Should you or your loved one need help they can activate the call system that can be heard by all staff and who will immediately respond. The system also records all activations, who responded and time to respond on a state of the art computerised system.

Of equal importance is the data is logged and can be viewed afterwards by family or staff fi required afterwards. The system provides us with reassurance, reliability and simplicity with the Medicare Nurse Call System.
