Residential Care

Whether you’re looking to come to The Fleet Care Home because you no longer want the stress of running your own home or you require care and additional support throughout the day, our team is trained to ensure each resident is given as much, or as little support as they need.

Our individualised care plans are designed to match each resident’s unique needs and we strive to provide not only around-the-clock medical care but also well-being support, allowing residents to live a full and happy life every day.

Defining Residential Care

Residential Care provides residents with support with everyday tasks such as washing, dressing, toileting, administering medication and mobility. As the name suggests, Residential Care means that residents can treat our home as their own and live there with access to the number of services and facilities available on site. Residential Care usually refers to long-term care given to adults who live in a residential setting rather than in their own home or family home, supporting those struggling with daily life activities and providing the help and caring environment that they need.

A Holistic Approach to Residential Care

Our approach is more than meeting care needs, it’s about caring for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole; an entirely holistic approach to Residential Care. We’re here to support our residents to continue living life in the way that they want to, with as much or as little support as they need. Our entire home has been designed to offer residents the highest level of comfort and a true home-from-home feeling where residents to feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible.

Residential Care at The Fleet Care Home

Our Home Manager and Deputy Manager are supported by a dedicated team of Registered General Nurses, Senior Carers and Health Care Assistants, each of whom have a particular interest in care of the elderly. Residential Care is delivered to residents on the ground floor of our purpose built care home, where residents receive the finest possible care at all times, day and night. Our person-centered approach to care means we look after our residents as a whole, offering an opportunity to give residents their independence back, in a safe and supportive environment.

When is Residential Care Suitable?

Residential Care may be the ideal option if you or a loved one is finding it difficult to live alone and carry out daily tasks, or if living alone is beginning to have a negative influence on emotional or physical health. This form of care is appropriate for people who need a little help to keep doing the things they enjoy, but who can live independently in other areas of their lives. We’re here to support our residents to continue living life in the way that they want to, with as much or as little support as they need. It’s important to us that The Fleet Care Home feels like home right from the very beginning and that daily life is relaxed and free from any unnecessary stress or anxiety.

Combining Quality Care, Friendship and Independence

Our approach goes beyond meeting care needs; we aim to care for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole. Our team is made up of highly-skilled professionals who understand the support residents require to enhance their lives and strive to create a thriving and stimulating environment for them each and every day. The Fleet Care Home proudly presents all who live with us with an enriching and nurturing environment, with an abundance of opportunities for residents to strike up new friendships and make special memories to treasure. We truly believe that making the decision to move to our home should mark the beginning of a new chapter, one that allows residents to feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible.
