Residential Care in Ruby

We recognise that as people get older, circumstances can change and it becomes more difficult to live a fulfilled and happy life in your own home. The responsibility of day-to-day living can become a worry for the individual or their family.

Apex Care Centre has dedicated rooms to provide residents who do not have nursing requirements with a comfortable and relaxed home environment without the burden of home maintenance, bills, laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc. The Home’s care team will be there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to encourage independent spirit of residents and ensure all needs are met and each day is worry-free.

Nursing Care in Amethyst and Emerald

Those residents who require Nursing Care Services also benefit from the same in-home facilities that are for our Residential residents. They will also have a dedicated team of round-the-clock Registered General Nurses who report to the Head of Care.

To ensure consistency of care, our nursing team will liaise regularly with the resident’s GP and other healthcare professionals.

We will maintain the very best nursing equipment to ensure the comfort and safety of our residents. We have the latest profiling beds, moving and handling equipment and hydrotherapy baths.

Dementia Care in Sapphire and Topaz

Apex Care Centre offers specialist support for those living with dementia; a range of diseases and conditions that affect the brain and brain functions where symptoms may include memory loss/confusion, sudden and sometimes extreme changes of mood and difficulty in communicating. Our purpose-built home provides a safe, comfortable and stimulating environment for the residents along with clinical expertise that gives ‘peace of mind’.

Our Dementia unit is independent and has been specifically adapted to provide this safe environment.

All staff working within this unit will have completed specialist dementia training to ensure that they are well equipped to help and care for those living with dementia and particularly to encourage and retain the residents’ sense of independence as far as possible.

Palliative Care in Emerald

Palliative care provides a resident with advanced and progressive illness the special support to ensure the best quality of life as they deal with the terminal disease. This is done alongside medical care and treatment.

Through care and support, we will strive to relieve some of the worry associated with long-term illness and help those individuals live each day active and happy.

The care staff working within this unit will have completed specialist end-of-life training. Our nursing staff are also qualified in providing the care and support to both the residents and their families.

Respite Care

At Apex Care Centre, we will provide the very same high-quality care services that are enjoyed by our long-term residents to individuals who come to us on a short-term basis.

Respite care is suitable for:

  • Those individuals who would like to take a short break with us, safe in the knowledge that all their needs can be accommodated
  • On discharge from hospital, many people may require additional care to start the recovery process. We can accommodate most of the clinical care requirements
  • Sometimes full-time carers need a short break. We can provide high quality care service so that the relative can relax and have some time-out
  • Some individuals may wish to come to us on a short term as a ‘trial’ basis to ensure that the resident will be comfortable should they require longer-term care

Using the experience of our staff, residents, relatives and healthcare professionals, we aim to provide the highest quality of care services within Apex Care Centre. We will aim to enable our residents to maintain as much independence as they can for as long as they can by balancing risk with quality of day-to-day living to maintain lifestyle choices.
