Little Heaton Care Home

When a new resident arrives they will be met by their key carer who will give them a guided tour of their new home. they will also discuss meal times and menus, activities and introduce them to some of the other residents and members of staff.

When a new resident joins us, we make getting to know them and their relatives a top priority. This helps us build a picture of how they would like to be supported day to day, so we can create a personalised care plan.

Visitors are welcome at any time, whether that’s for a coffee, a catch-up or to take part in an activity. Family and friends are encouraged to join for meal times too, especially at the start of the resident's stay.

Meeting the Team

Janette Reedy is the Registered Manager and she does hold an open door policy. The team is aware of family and work commitments; therefore they we will meet with potential guests and their families at their convenience.

Activities

Listening to our residents is one of the most important things we do each day, so that we can truly get to know them. We explore people’s different characters, likes and dislikes and we always pay special attention to people’s stories because places filled with stories and warmth are places that everyone is happy to call home. Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated specially trained Activities Coordinators gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we will encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new as we have a number of activities that run across all the services from gardening, to reading clubs, cooking, day trips, film days, drawing, painting, singing and dancing. We have activities throughout the week such as arts and crafts as well as games of bingo each week with amazing prizes. We pride ourselves in keeping our service users as active as possible with them often walking around the local area, or visiting local community centres for activities and games, as well as visiting the seaside for fish and chips!
