Many of our residents lead full and active lives, yet welcome the 24 hour a day security of a professional, personalised care environment and the opportunity to live amongst like-minded individuals from a spectrum of similar professional backgrounds. We believe that residents should retain as much of their independence and mobility as possible and are able to enjoy trips in our specially adapted minibus to places of interest and entertainment, or simply to the local shops.
As well as maintaining the highest possible standards of personal care, we offer expert nursing care at Rashwood. Working closely with local health care professionals, our fully-qualified nursing staff are able to offer dedicated medical care to our residents, 24 hours a day. Nursing care goes beyond the everyday welfare of our residents to include such things as provision of post-operative care and specific nursing support for chronic and terminal illness.
Many of our long term residents have previously stayed with us on a short stay basis. There are many reasons for residents choosing a short stay – it maybe that a carer will be away or requires a break for a period of time, or that a resident needs specialised care during a period of post operative recovery. Whatever the reason for your stay, you will be afforded the same high standards of care and assessment as our longer-term residents.
end of life
Quality of life is as much a right for the terminally ill as for everyone else; at Elizabeth Finn Homes we believe that compassionate care for both the chronically and terminally ill can improve the quality of their lives. At Rashwood we provide for those who are terminally ill, with care that focuses on the control of pain and symptoms (sometimes referred to as palliative care).
We are delighted that Rashwood holds the prestigious Gold Standard Framework in recognition of its excellent end of life care.
