Merafield View Nursing Home
Merafield View is a nursing home for up to 40 residents in Plympton. We provide services for people of old age and/or physical disability.
All of our 40 purpose built bedrooms are decorated to the highest standard, with modern furniture and all of the rooms are fully accessible via the lift.
Many rooms have far-reaching views across the valley of Plympton and Dartmoor. Every room has a TV and a modern emergency nurse call system.
We encourage residents to bring their own possessions and treasures - to turn their room into their very own home from home. We very much want our residents to feel relaxed, comfortable and familiar in their surroundings.
Our Housekeeping team ensure that rooms are cleaned daily, bins emptied and all rooms are supplied with fresh linen.
We also have a Hydrotherapy room, which has a mobile hoist and is situated near the main lift. The room is wheelchair accessible and provides an invaluable facility for those requiring regular hydrotherapy sessions or simply a nice soak in the bath. Two wet rooms also provide the option for any guests that wish to have a shower.
Our highly experienced and dedicated team of nurses and support staff, provide 24 hour care, 365 days a year. Our quality of care standards, as set by CQC (Care Quality Commission) are continually delivered and we aim to surpass expectations year upon year.
Medical staff ensure care plans are regularly monitored and frequent meetings with residents and relatives ensure that everyone is involved when it comes to the running of the care home.
The nursing team liaise with outside agencies and this provides us with close working relationships with local GPs, social services, pharmacy's and local health centres. This cohesive arrangement ensures that all medical services and facilities required by residents are clearly accessible.
We are very proud of our Six Steps + Accreditation with St. Luke's Hospice, which we have consistently maintained for many years. This accreditation focuses on quality end of life care and evidences our ongoing commitment and passion for palliative care.
Our Activities Co-ordinator encourages residents to take up new hobbies, join in with games afternoons and is on hand to organise functions and day trips.
For those residents who like a social life, we can provide outings including shopping trips, visits to local areas and group events.
We love to celebrate a birthday and we don't need an excuse for a good party or cake.
Equally if reading or playing cards is more for you, then our peaceful conservatory may suit you better. There are plenty of quiet areas within the building, each with adequate lighting and space for quieter moments.
Merafield View have undertaken the St Luke's Six Steps programme and is an accredited end of life care provider.
