There is a home-from-home feeling within all our care homes. Most of our rooms are accessible by wheelchairs. We can offer hospital beds, air mattresses, pressure cushions along with other aids to make the stay more comfortable. Burlington Care believes that staff selection and training is the solution to offering exceptional person-centred care.
All staff undergo thorough training to ensure that we can offer a high level of care and support. We encourage further development within our care teams by supporting with additional training and professional qualifications where required.
We strongly support the provision of a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet for all residents. We take pride in providing tasty, tempting meals for our residents. Mealtimes should be an enjoyable occasion for most residents. Residents are asked about their food preferences, as well as their cultural, religious or health needs.
There is never a dull moment at Burlington Care. We offer a wide range of activities, which include trips out, indoor activities and a wide range of entertainment. There are many opportunities to sit quietly, watch television or listen to music.
Our approach is to focus on ensuring that a wide range of activities and social events are regularly organised.
For those who enjoy pampering, we have our hairdressing salons in some of our homes and regular visits from the chiropodist and massage therapist.
