We cater for 26 residents, all with various different ailments and illnesses, which may include dementia, stroke, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and physical disabilities, as well as providing palliative care for our residents who are at the end of their lives. A majority of our residents have dementia, although they are all at different stages of the illness.

Accommodation

Chatsworth is a modern, well-maintained home that is registered for 26 residents. We have a large lounge that is light and airy and has a large, wide screen television. In the lounge, we have two sets of doors that lead onto an enclosed patio area that overlooks the gardens and main road. As soon as the sun decides to arrive, we encourage our residents and their families to use the patio as and when they wish. The staff also uses it to do their activities with the residents.

The bedrooms at Chatsworth all vary in size and d├ęcor. This is because we like to ensure that the rooms are personal to each individual resident. We like our residents to personalise their rooms, they can bring in their own furniture, hang pictures on the walls, change rooms around to suit their needs, have their rooms painted a colour that they like, have a telephone installed, have papers delivered to their rooms, etc.

We believe that when a resident walks into a bedroom with items that they remember and are familiar with, they feel settled and feel that they belong there.

We have 22 single rooms and 2 double bedrooms; 9 of our bedrooms are en-suite. Residents have pro-filing beds that are adjustable to meet their needs, and all beds have pressure mattresses on them.

Bathrooms and toilets are adapted to help promote independence among the residents.

Services and activities

At Chatsworth, we firmly believe that the body and the mind are very closely linked and that keeping the body active, even for those who are perhaps less agile than they once were, can also do wonders for their state of mind. As such, we have an Activities Co-Ordinator on the team, whose role it is to run a programme of pastimes to stimulate both body and mind.
