What Are The Benefits of Residential Care?

Residential care is the most common type of social care offered to older people in a care home. Residential care homes are staffed with a team of professionals who are able to provide care at different levels. Some residential homes also offer other types of care services on certain floors, such as nursing care or dementia care.

Residential care is suitable for individuals seeking companionship with those of a similar age who share similar interests or who are no longer able to look after themselves at home. Residential care is designed to heighten one’s quality of life by allowing them to pursue their passions in a luxurious, supportive environment. 

Many care homes offer a range of activities and facilities that allow residents to experience a varied, active lifestyle during their stay. 

The 9 Main Benefits of Residential Care

  1. Security

Residential Care Homes that offer many types of care including nursing, dementia and respite will have staff on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can have peace of mind knowing that a member of the team will always be by your side should you need assistance. For example, if you have a fall or need some help dressing and washing, you can call for assistance at any time of day and night. 

  1. Customised Care

Residents will be in the best possible hands at a residential home or nursing home surrounded by a team of care experts. The care will be tailored to the individual in order to meet their needs and expectations after a thorough care assessment has been carried out. 

Once a care plan has been established, the team will follow this carefully in order to provide accurate and effective care. As care needs change over time, care plans can be altered as and when needed. 

  1. Companionship

It is often that elderly people can feel lonely due to having lost loved ones or living alone. Living in a residential care home provides you with the opportunity to interact with like-minded people on a daily basis. Exchanging conversations with those who are of a similar age or with similar interests allows residents to chat about their interests or even reminisce about their past.

  1. Regular Activities

It’s important that residents have ample opportunity to participate in activities that suit their interests so that they can improve upon a skill or even learn something new. Private care homes may include in-house facilities such as a cinema room, library, garden, salon and activities programme which is usually included within the care home fee. Participating in regular activities that use the brain and body to move can help to improve mental and physical wellbeing.

  1. Homemade Meals

Residents can experience nutritional, regular meals prepared by a care home’s chef and kitchen team. It’s extremely important that elderly people are regularly eating and drinking to keep their energy levels up and stop the risk of falls or fragility. 

Residents can choose from a varied menu that offers homemade, healthy meals to satisfy all taste buds. Meals can be served regularly in the comfort of one’s bedroom, or in a communal dining space. Dietary needs and preferences will also be taken into consideration.

  1. Peace of Mind For Loved Ones

Loved ones of residents can rest assured that their family members are being looked after around-the-clock in a safe and secure environment by a team of qualified professionals who will oversee their health and wellbeing and provide necessary care as and when it’s needed. Residents will also be in good company so loved ones needn’t worry about them being alone. 

  1. Medication Management

It is often that daily medication is required to help with certain health conditions that come with old age. These medications can often be forgotten by an individual so it’s important that they can be regularly monitored to ensure the correct dosage is taken, and that they are being well-cared for at all times.

  1. Exceptional Living Conditions

Private care homes are modern, purpose-built care homes that provide a 5* hotel feel. These rooms are usually designed by an interior designer to ensure a high standard is achieved and that every room is as beautiful as the next. A care home will have its own dedicated housekeeper who keeps every room clean and comfortable, so residents don’t have to worry about partaking in household chores after moving into a care home. 

  1. A Private Bedroom

Residents can enjoy their own private sanctuary, a place to call their own where they can customise with personal belongings and experience a comfortable night’s sleep. Most bedrooms feature an en-suite bathroom, so residents have easy access at all times and needn’t worry about having to share their bathroom with others.
