What Type of Care Home is Right for Your Loved One?

It can be difficult to adapt your home for the care your family member needs or find in-house support that suits an individual’s requirements. Care homes are the right option for you and your loved one if you want to focus on their well-being, without letting them do everything for themselves. After you’ve considered location and cost, it’s time to find out what kind of home is right for your family member, depending on what type of care they need.

Nursing Care Home

Care homes that specialise in nursing are best for those that have special requirements. Nurses will be expertly trained to look after individuals with different medical needs. This kind of care is for residents with illnesses that need attention beyond the usual day to day routine.

Residential Care Home

Residential care homes try their best to make the environment a home from home. Nurses a retrained to support residents with daily tasks like washing and cleaning, so individuals feel they can get on with their everyday life. People want normality and the best way to provide this is by creating a warm atmosphere.Workers at residential care homes usually organise activities for residents too, to entertain and get individuals out and about whenever they can.

The Boutique Care Home

Boutique care homes, like Silver Oaks, offer a warm and comfortable environment. They are often in unique and beautiful buildings that resemble the cosy atmosphere that resides inside. Silver Oaks is situated in a lovely Grade II listed thatched home, next to a stunning forest. It also provides access to local shops and facilities, so our care home feels more like a home from home, rather than a building cut off from the rest of the world.

Boutique care homes are perfect for those who want to live their normal lives, without the restraints a traditional care home puts in place. This means residents at Silver Oaks can get up when they want and go about daily life as they usually would at home, with support available if they require it. Our care home is small, so every resident gets the attention and personalised care they need.

Boutique care homes are aware of mental health as well as physical care, so it’s about treating the residents beyond just the usual day-to-day looking after. Silver Oaks helps maintain some independence for the residents as we encourage individuals to do things for themselves for as long as possible. We make sure residents feel the warmth and care that they would usually feel at home in their familiar environment. Our care home has a dining room, a quiet room, a TV lounge and a beautiful garden, which gives Silver Oaks all the elements of a family home.Boutique care homes combine the best aspects of both nursing and residential care homes and provide individual and personal attention to each and every resident.
