Your room - your private space
We recognise that having your own private space is very important and we have made great efforts to make the bedrooms comfortable and homely. As all the homes are adapted from family homes, they retain that cosy family feel. Rooms vary in size and shape and many have ensuite toilet facilities.
We encourage all new residents to bring small items of furniture when they come to stay, as familiar objects are reassuring when you are in a new place. Even if it is just for a weekend, seeing your own photographs on your bedside table when you wake gives you a sense of familiarity.
At Thorncliffe have have 24 single rooms and two double rooms, many of which have en-suite facilities.
At Oldfield House Residential Home there are 18 single rooms and 1 double room.
At Oldfield Manor there are 15 single rooms and 1 double room, some of which have en-suite facilities.
All rooms in all our homes have a wash basin, nurse call system and TV point. Each room has a wardrobe with internal shelving, a bedside cabinet with a lockable facility and a comfortable lounge chair. Any of these can be replaced with your own furniture if you choose.
Your privacy is carefully protected when you are in your bathroom - all staff knock before coming in to your room, and you can lock your room and keep the key if you would prefer this. Visiting times are not restricted, but we do respectfully request visitors try to avoid meal times.
All homes have bathrooms which have bath hoists and are suitable for even the most mobility restricted, and we recently fitted roll-in showers in all homes, to accomodate those who prefer showers to baths. These all have specialist mobile shower chairs to make the experience most safe and comfortable.
On admission, each resident will be given a Guide to our Services, and our Terms and Conditions, which explain how the home is managed and our expectations of the agreement between the Home and each resident, and has the full complaints policy in. An additional copy can be issued on request. Any concerns can be reported to the Staff in charge or Care Manager.
