We will only admit to Glencoe Nursing Home those residents that we are sure we can provide a high standard of appropriate care and cater for their social needs.

To enable a decision to be made for a planned admission all prospective residents and / or their representatives will be invited to view the home and meet with the manager or her deputy and discuss the care and needs that are required. Following this a member of the management team will visit the prospective resident where they are currently living and carry out a full pre admission assessment with them and any other relevant people who have an input into their care for a final informed decision to be made as to whether the home is able to meet all needs. It should be pointed out that is the policy of the home only to carry out pre admission assessments if Glencoe is the home of choice for a prospective resident.

Should a person be admitted as an emergency admission then a pre admission assessment will be carried out with a relevant care professional usually over the telephone and the home will ask for all nursing needs assessments to be faxed to the home prior to admission. The home will then endeavour to complete all relevant paperwork within the first 48 hours of admission and will ensure the resident and their representatives are made aware of all necessary information regarding the home.

On admission to the home there is a four week trial period for both the resident and the home and during this time either party has the right to terminate the residents' stay with no notice needing to be given. A full copy of the contract is included in this brochure.
