Admission Process

Our care home is open to admission to individuals for day-care and long-term care. Admissions to the care home must be adequately planned.  Following an enquiry, a visit is arranged for the individual and or the family to view the home at first and to ensure the placement and the environment will be suitable in meeting the individuals need, pay the registration fee and then the Care Home Manager carries out a pre-admission assessment.

What is Pre-admission Assessment?

Pre-admission Assessment is a meeting where all relevant information is gathered from the individual, the family or carer and the multidisciplinary team. The assessment contains all necessary information such as medical history, list of current medication, social history and daily living needs. It is very important for us that the family (and carer where applicable) is present during an assessment and active in all stages of care planning for their loved ones.

The pre-admission assessment serves many different purposes. Some of these purposes are outlined below:

  • Detailed analysis about an individual’s needs
  • Understanding of the individual’s care needs before they move in.
  • Familiarity – the potential resident would meet at least one member of the staff team before they move into the home.
Frequently  Asked Questions

No, we are not a hospital and do not have all the specialist available in the hospital. Taking on someone we do not know anything about is a risk we cannot take.

Modern day technology has made communication very easy. Some part of the assessment can be carried out over the phone, but we will arrange for your loved one to see an appointed specialist locally to you who will carry out the assessment and send us a report which will enable us to make a decision.

That does not mean we cannot admit the person; it may mean they would need a lot of specialist input and as long as we can secure the services of such specialist. It is worth nothing this would attract additional charges to be discussed.

If there is a vacant bed available, the individual can move in as soon as reasonably practical usually within 48hours subject to all medical tests, if there is no bed available then the name is added to our waiting list until such time when a bed becomes available.

Our admission and acceptance decision are based on:

  • The persons present and future needs
  • The persons mental capacity
  • The physical accommodation needed
  • Staff implications
  • Present resident population
  • Government registration and regulatory considerations

Our Environment

Our thoughtfully adapted home offers a variety of beautiful spacious living and dining areas. We have “quiet” lounge with no television but the occasional radio sound in the background for anyone who may want to enjoy their own company, attend to visitors in private outside of their bedroom or just read a newspaper or a book.

The property has been designed and laid out to have a positive impact especially on individuals with dementia. We have created a dementia friendly environment with memory aids such as pictorial labels and icons, safer flooring for fall prevention and use of bright colour and contrast for better safety and perception which helps distinguish and navigate different parts of the building and enable residents get around easily to promote maximum independence and confidence.

All our bedrooms are cosy and comfortable with en-suite facilities are easily accessible by wheelchair. We aim to provide a “home from home” atmosphere so, our residents are encouraged to decorate their rooms (within health and safety regulations) with favourite  such as small furniture, pictures or treasured belongings so that it feels just like home with the special touches.

We have an activities room giving space for residents to pursue their hobbies and interests.

Our outdoor is secure and loved by the residents. Everybody has a reason to go out there; some to relax and enjoy the fresh air, some to exercise, others look after the chicken, rabbits and fishes as well as a good area to socialise with friends and relatives.

With activity comes a zest of life.

Our residents are offered choices and we have a rolling two-weekly menu. (Feel free to request to see the sample menus at the care home) From the option of breakfast each morning through to lunch and dinner, our chefs prepare a variety of wholesome, nutritionally balanced meals.

Terms and Conditions of Service

The acceptance of a person to stay at Hope Villa Care Home involves a special relationship being formed around the specialist care being provided by the home. However, in order to do so, we have to maintain an extensive establishment at a financial cost and therefore we have to define the relationship in business terms constituting a contract. These terms are intended to protect you and us from any misunderstandings and are for our mutual benefit.

A contract is an important legally binding document detailing our general terms and conditions of service and you should read it carefully. You may like to seek independent legal advice as it is important that you have read and understood these terms and conditions before entering into this agreement.

We may at times request to see a legal authority to act on behalf of a resident such a Power of Attorney. We request that a legal representative witness the documents and all fees paid in full before admission to the care home.

From time to time we make amendments to our terms and conditions to reflect changing circumstances that affect the home and the way in which it is operated. We will always give residents at least one months’ notice of any changes to our terms and conditions and the amended terms and conditions will then apply.

A brief summary of our contract includes:

  • the cost of care and payment terms
  • the notice period for any increases
  • any deposits or advance payments required
  • the type of accommodation provided
  • the level of care to be provided
  • any additional fees and charges that may be incurred
  • what happens if residents are temporarily absent from the care home (for example, they are in hospital)
  • the terms of cancellation of the contract, both on your part and on that of the care home
