We are delighted to provide an innovative lighting system that supports residents to appreciate the natural passing of time, this has received acclaim from recognised universities as supporting residents living with dementia.

Dementia Care

At Eastleigh we consider it a privilege to share memories, experiences and stories we hear from our residents sometimes many years ago; often with amazing clarity like it was yesterday. To support this process our care staff and activities team take time to speak with residents, family and friends to gain an individual life story for each resident. These precious memories, which usually include narration and pictures, are then immortalized to form a personal journal; which can be a supportive and vital reference tool for reminiscence therapy. We also utilise gentle prompts to assist short term memory loss and help with re-making connections.

We seek to involve immediate family, relatives and friends, when deciding on the best care for each individual, as we consider that this assists us to achieve a more detailed understanding of the care we need to provide. Our team also offers support and understanding for everyone trying to understand the effects that dementia can have on someone they are close to.

Eastleigh Care Homes provides a safe and relaxing environment, stimulating the residents' enjoyment and offering a comfortable lifestyle with professional and sensitive carers who are trained to cope with the unpredictable nature of the illness. Our dementia care encourages individuals to retain their identity, and continue to enjoy their same lifestyle as much as possible.

The most important aspect of dementia care comes from our carers and staff working with the residents by maintaining absolute respect for each person and their value as an individual. Personal and sensitive communication and interaction is paramount in ensuring that a person who has dementia retains their self-worth, pride and dignity. Simply by listening and being able to share time with a resident who has dementia supports the development of relationships that allows us to help them to enjoy their lives in the safe environment of our specialist dementia care home.

Residential Care

Our residential homes in South Molton and Minehead support those requiring assistance without the need for the daily guidance of a Registered Nurse. These homes provide a step up for the care that can be provided at home.

Staff are able to provide minimal assistance or more detailed care  for residents as dictated by the resident or their advocate. Depending on the needs of the resident we can provide assistance with daily activities such as personal hygiene, dressing, eating, and walking.

Our residential homes are highly interactive and activities form a major highlight of the day. However if you prefer a quieter life then there are plenty of places to sit, reminisce or pass the time of day.

All of your care, meals and laundry are included in our fees.

There is a wide range of reasons for needing residential care. By accessing this level of care it could help you to continue living safely, whilst giving your family or carer peace of mind knowing you are in a safe and supportive environment. Residential care provides you with; day to day support, a comfortable and safe environment to live in, activities of real interest and enjoyment, privacy and dignity as well as support for your physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social needs.

If you feel that you are unable to continue living at home and are thinking about living in a residential care home you may need to contact your local Adult Social Care office in the first instance. They will then talk to you about the support you may need. They will complete an assessment and it will determine whether you require residential, nursing or dementia care. If you are funding your own care you can be assessed by the Eastleigh Care Homes and we will assist you with appreciating the level of care that you may require.

Nursing Care

Most residents with complex care needs would be managed in our nursing homes due to the level of specialist care that they would require. Our nursing homes boast modern equipment to assist with the needs of our residents; these include profiling beds, mobile and ceiling hoists, specialist bathing facilities and personalised care developed for each individual.

At Eastleigh Care Homes we understand that our provision of care needs to be all encompassing and offer opportunities for those with alternative care requirements somewhere to call home.

We would be more than willing to discuss your care requirements and reassure you that we have a dedicated team that are encouraged to continually develop their professional skills to support residents who may have a specialised care need. Previously we have supported residents who have needed to join us as they have Parkinson's, Huntingdon's, Multiple Sclerosis, Strokes, Long term heart conditions, Diabetes and other complex conditions that have required our professional and focused support.

Palliative

Palliative care provides individual support to residents with an advanced progressive illness, as well as offering help and support to their families. Palliative care aims to offer the best quality of life available for individuals suffering terminal diseases and illnesses and is considered a form of support that works alongside medical care and treatment.

Palliative care celebrates life, and regards death as a normal, natural process. Eastleigh Care Homes provide professional, considerate and positive support and relieve the worry associated with long-term illness; helping residents to live an active and happy lifestyle each day.

The management of pain and the symptoms of progressive illnesses are carefully addressed by our carers.  Particular emphasis is placed on psychological and social assistance in coping with how it affects the resident and their families.  As well as devoting specialist care to the individual we offer a system of support for relatives and friends during the period of illness, and into their bereavement.
