Brendoncare knows it can be very difficult when thinking about what is best for a loved one when they need help and support. The decision to think about moving an older relative or friend into a care home is one of the hardest decisions people have to make. To help ease this transition, Brendoncare Alton is offering a free trial for a relative to move in alongside the new resident, so they can help them settle in to their new surroundings.
The resident and relative will each be given a room so they can isolate together for up to two weeks, to ensure safety for them and their fellow residents. This will also provide the opportunity for them to get to know the staff and work together on their individual needs and preferences. The relative will see kindness and compassion in action and will be able to observe the high standard of care their loved one will receive.
Lynne Hewitt, General Manager at Brendoncare Alton, said:
We know how hard it can be to be apart from a loved one at this time and we wanted to be able to help in any way possible. We are delighted to be able to offer free rooms for a relative or friend, so they can isolate together. We look forward to welcoming new residents into our lovely home.
Brendoncare Alton is run by Winchester-based charity, The Brendoncare Foundation, and provides nursing care for 80 people, as well as specialist care for people living with dementia, including respite care. It has recently undergone a major refurbishment and boasts comfortable and modern accommodation across five households, each with its own facilities. A close care complex adjoins the home, providing the independence and security of home ownership, combined with access to the home’s many caring and communal facilities, giving peace of mind.
