We recognise that service users of different ages and abilities will have different interests and so the home is able to provide and support a variety of leisure interests such as gardening, reminisance therapy, crafts, watercolour sessions, ballroom dancing and social groups. Some activities are on the premises whilst others involve going out into the local community.
The Yachtsman prides itself on its ability to provide specialist care for persons with Dementia. Our staff receive regular training both in house and externally to ensure the standards of care we deliver remain high. Our home expects to provide further training where necessary to enable us to deliver appropriate and holistic care to all service users. We only admit service users once we have carried out the necessary assessments to enable all needs to be met. The home will decline to admit a service user if we are unable to meet needs. It is the homes practice to involve outside agencies and with the involvement and support of the multi disciplinary team.
Our staff have significant experience delivering care for service users and all care needs will be discussed on an individual basis prior to admission.
Our Statement of Purpose gives information to prospective service users on how we run our home and what they can expect from us at The Yachtsman.
