Glencoe is a home which provides general nursing care for up to 20 adults. Within this we have 5 registered beds for people who need specialist palliative care and 10 places for those with physical disabilities. All bedrooms and communal areas have wheelchair access including the enclosed patio and gardens to the rear of the home. Wheelchair access into the home is via the side entrance. Some of the bedrooms have en suite facilities and there are also communal bathrooms with specialized bathing facilities. The home has two communal lounges with plasma screen televisions and comfortable seating arrangements and there is a large dining room where residents can join each other for their meals if they desire. The home is a non-smoking home, but should residents wish to continue smoking then this needs to be discussed with the manager prior to admission.

We recognize that all residents are individuals and as such will have differing interests and activities; the home is very pro-active in trying to ensure that residents can remain as active as they wish and can continue with their activities if it is possible and they are able. We have a dedicated Activities Coordinator who is supported by all the other staff in the home to ensure that we can provide and support those residents who wish to participate in activities or to pursue their own interests wherever it is reasonable practicable and safe. We organize outings on a monthly basis as a group and visit many of the local attractions; we are also able to organize a wheelchair taxi service (payable locally) for those who wish to go out from the home. For other services provided by the home, please see our leaflet enclosed within this brochure.

The home is proud of its ability to provide specialist care for a variety of conditions and delivers a high standard of palliative care for which we achieved the nationally recognized Gold Standard Framework in June 2009. Staff training is very important to the management of the home and regular training and updates are provided for all staff both internally and externally to ensure that our standards remain high and our knowledge up to date. We have built a good rapport over the years with many of the outside agencies to ensure that the best care possible is being delivered to our residents.

The home will decline to admit a person to the home if we are unable to meet all of their nursing and social needs following a detailed pre-admission assessment and discussion which is always carried out by the Registered Manager or her deputy.

Our Statement of Purpose is written to give information to prospective residents and their family / friends on how we run Glencoe and the service that you can expect from us. (see Staff section)
