Our aim at St. Margaret’s is to provide a safe, relaxed, caring environment for residents whilst respecting their rights to self-determination in order to make St. Margaret’s their home.
Our philosophy is one in which the core values of care, dignity, privacy, individuality, independence and the rights of all residents must be considered to form the basis of our home.
At St. Margaret's we can meet a whole range of long-term care needs required by each individual. As part of our assessment process we aim to discover what makes the 'whole person' which includes physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs and lifestyle choices.
Care plans are designed to promote individuality, equality and independence whilst providing the correct level of support required. Prospective residents are encouraged to visit St. Margaret's, as well as have a home visit for assessment. On admission, residents and their families are encouraged to personalise their room with trinkets to furniture, if they wish.
Our staff are carefully selected and have a sympathetic understanding about how to cater to each individual resident’s needs. An ongoing training programme will ensure our staff continue to have the necessary skills to provide quality care. Staff training meets individual needs and all of our staff undertake formal qualifications.
