Philosophy of Care
Overleat seeks to provide the highest standards of person centred care to our residents.
Individual care plans are formed with the resident and their family. They are then regularly reviewed and updated.
Residents are actively encouraged to exercise choice and to enjoy life to their full potential: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Stimulating group and one to one activities are encouraged according to individual needs, abilities and aspirations. Resident centred care is at the heart of our philosophy.
Why Choose Overleat
We feel Here at Overleat we are really a cut above the rest and second only to being in one's own home. Our Home is a elegant residence with first-rate facilities and equipment throughout. Our staff members, of whom we are enormously proud, are top quality too. Warm and friendly, they work as a team to ensure residents' needs are met around the clock. Care needs are regularly reviewed with the resident and his or her family, if appropriate. Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time.
Our Home has a Social Events Co-ordinator to organise activities and befriend residents whose relatives, for instance, live overseas and are not able to visit as often as they may wish. We take great care too to ensure that residents have plenty in common, so that dining and socialising is a pleasure.
As one relative puts it:
"Our mother came to your Home after she had been attacked by arthritis and was unable to do ordinary household tasks such as shopping or cooking. At that time she was a shadow of her former self. A few days later I visited her and the transformation was miraculous - she is self-assured and happy with restored energy. The care, surroundings and happy atmosphere have, we believe, transformed her life."
