Homes and housing Types of Care Residential care Pilgrims' Friends Society provides Christian run residential care. Our homes are designed for people who want to live in a Christian environment where Christian worship, prayer and support is a core part of daily life. and where the senior staff are themselves Christians. If this is you, them we welcome your application. Specific Eligibility Criteria To makes sure that we can deliver a Christian environment we require people living with us to be sympathetic to our Christian ethos and over 60 years old for retirement housing, or over 65 years of age. Some of our homes are held within a trust that requires us to make sure that people are wanting to live with us are in active agreement with our Protestant Christian ethos and have a personal testimony consistent with our doctrinal basis of faith. The descriptions of each home will make it clear whether or not these specific additional eligibility criteria apply. Residential care services Residential care is for people who are unable to live by themselves. Residential care services range from room and board, housekeeping, and supervision to personal care assistance with things like personal hygiene, dressing, eating, and walking. Only one of our homes (Evington in Leicester) provides 24 hour nursing care, but the services we have in place at our residential homes mean that we are able to look after most of the people who want to come and live with us. If we can't look after someone really well then we will say so as part of our initial discussions and we may be able to signpost people to somewhere else that can. All our residential care homes have a caring 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. District Nurses support our Care Staff as and when needed. We have many years' experience of supporting people coming into residential care, and helping people come to terms with this major change in their lives. We make new residents feel welcome in their new home. What we do is centred around each resident, what they want to do and how they want us to help. An initial assessment and discussion is written up in the form of an Individualised Service Plan of care (ISP) that is constantly monitored and updated. This means that – even as things change over time – each resident (and their family) can be sure that they are receiving the most appropriate care and support.
