Cann House Nursing Home
Cann House is a family owned care home with nursing set within a magnificent country house and is situated approximately 1.5 miles from either Derriford Hospital or the Nuffield Hospital.
Cann House is situated in the beautiful village of Tamerton Foliot and is close to the village church, post office, shops and school; it also has the benefit of a regular bus service with a bus stop at the main entrance.
Cann House was originally built in 1863 and is set in 9 acres of established grounds with sweeping lawns and woodland containing some rare types of trees. Within the grounds is one of Plymouth's oldest walled gardens and a large Victorian greenhouse. The House and grounds are surrounded by wide paths and therefore provided easy access for wheelchairs.
The house itself has been lovingly restored by the owners to provide space for the resident's needs, whether this is a quiet area or a place to join in with a variety of participation activities, but at the same time maintaining a feeling of warmth and cosiness.
Our most treasured and elegant features of the Care Home is the beautiful Oak panelled entrance hall, with a sweeping staircase, delicately carved ceiling and the large marble period fireplace.
We have two large dining areas, television, reading and sun lounges and a chapel that offers regular services for the residents.
We provide a choice of single rooms and we have a few double rooms. All rooms have en-suite toilets and washbasins, are tastefully decorated, furnished, and fitted with a nurse call system. There are bathrooms on each floor. The baths are fitted with special hoists to help those residents that may have mobility difficulties. We also have a very large wet room located on the Ground Floor, and a further wet room located on the first floor. We have a large passenger lift that accommodates ambulance trolleys and larger wheelchairs.
Cann House has spacious corridors allowing residents easy access to all parts of the home.
We strive to provide care in the best possible environment. The majority of rooms have pleasant views of the garden and countryside. A choice of room will be given on admission based on availability at the time. If a resident wishes to change rooms after admission for any reason they will be given the first available room of their choice. Great thought is given to ensure that residents are happy with their choice of room and to ensure that they spend their final days surrounded by their personal belongings and loved ones.
Relatives and people who visit are offered a choice of meals to have with the resident for a small charge. Relatives and loved ones can stay overnight (if they so wish) when their relative is nearing the end of their life.
Advocates/relatives are actively encouraged to create a warm welcoming atmosphere and place personal items such as pictures, ornaments, radios or televisions in their chosen room. Larger items, (furniture etc) can be accommodated in most rooms at the discretion of the Registered Manager, ensuring that Health & Safety is not compromised, for the benefit of the Resident.
Residents are made to feel welcome by all of our staff on admission and family or friends are encouraged to visit as often as possible to ensure continuity of relationships.
On admission, a nurse is assigned to each resident to ensure that all aspects of person-centred care planning are implemented in collaboration with the new resident, family and significant others, and members of the multi-disciplinary team. The nurse will monitor and review all aspects of care and will liaise with the care professionals, residents, family and friends throughout the resident stay.
Our dedicated staff are committed to giving the highest standards of care, with continuous assessment and updating of residents care plan, this being done in conjunction and agreement with resident and/or advocate.
It is very important that a resident's transition from hospital or from home be made as stress-free as possible, ensuring that all moves are in their best interest.
