Let’s face it. After a certain age, people lose their ability to even take care of themselves. If you have recently noticed your dad losing weight at an alarming rate or your mom missing important appointments regularly, it could be a natural consequence of ageing. Many old people even fall prey to age-related diseases, such as, Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. It such cases, it is better to move your elderly parents to a nursing home.
We understand how difficult it is to stay away from your dear ones. One way to make sure that you keep in regular touch with them is by moving them to a strategically located care home in West Sussex like Ashtonleigh Residential Care Home. We are located close to the town centre of Horsham and Horsham Park. You can easily reach our west sussex care home by bus, train, and car. It is just a 10 minute walk away from the train station. Parking facility is also available.
We follow a holistic care approach in nursing. We believe that every resident has some individual needs that should be addressed. In order to find out the exact requirements of our residents, we regularly discuss with their family members. We encourage the residents to meet new people and take part in group activities. There are two common places where our residents can sit back and relax or engage in group activities. A number of activities are organised in the recently renovated conservatory lounge. We celebrate birthdays of our residents. Friends and family members of the residents are also invited in special occasions. Alongside, we make sure that our guests get the best medical care. We have a full-time chiropodist, a hairdresser, and a physiotherapist to ensure holistic wellbeing for our residents.
Our team comprises of many trained and experienced professionals, including managers, team leaders, senior carers, and a head chef. Our matron Nicola Ambler is a qualified Registered Mental Nurse who has more than 15 years of experience in nursing. Our team members work in shifts to make sure that round-the-clock help is available. Every guest room is equipped with a nurse-call-bell. Residents can use that bell to get assistance even in odd hours. Staying at our care home in West Sussex is also a chance to experience gastronomic delights of our head chef Dot Sheppard. She caters to individual culinary requirements of every resident. We are undoubtedly the top choice among West Sussex care homes.
