Making the move The decision to move is usually hard to make. Change is ever present and moving to a place that is designed to support fulfilled living is usually only an alternative to making significant lifestyle changes at home. Find out how the homes and housing schemes we run can help you feel confident about making the right decision for you and explore some of the issues that might make a move the best way of navigating changing circumstances. Independent living The diverse lifestyles of all the older people we support are reflected in the range of tailored care we are able to provide. We recognise sometimes people need extra help to live a full life as they get older, but that being independent is important too. We have a range of lndependent Living options available to rent or buy in the form of apartments, flats or bungalows. Optional well-being packages can be purchased to help with daily chores.

Residential care There may come a time when living well independently becomes a worry or when the challenges of caring become unmanageable for a spouse or other family member. If this is the case, moving to somewhere specifically designed to provide support can be a positive step in helping the person who needs care, and also for a carer who can now concentrate on loving and caring in different ways. All our residential care homes have a caring Christian, family atmosphere and are staffed 24 hours a day with suitably qualified and trained care staff. All personal care needs, including administration of medications and dementia care, can be met. The District Nurses support our care staff as and when needed. Talk early Everyone can struggle to find the right moment to discuss future options for living, but doing so before the status quo becomes unsustainable is usually worthwhile, ensuring all parties feel confident their wishes will be properly considered if or when a move does becomes necessary. Be alert to changes Changes in behaviour, relationships and routine can be signs that you or your family may need to start thinking about whether your current home is the most suitable place for you to live.
