Leighswood House was established to provide specific care for the elderly experiencing several forms of dementia and Mental ill-health. 24-hour care is provided by experienced staff.
There are a number of medical specialists on-site including a GP, dentist, optician and chiropodist. Long-term and respite care are offered to residents. Ministers of all denominations make visits to the home. There are two lounges with karaoke and TV systems.
We have 19 single rooms and 2 double rooms, each of which contains en-suite facilities and nurse call. There are also TV aerial points in all rooms. A recent CQC review gave the Effective and Caring aspects of the home as “Good”.
Our care homes offer a care setting by where people who are elderly and frail can be encouraged and supported to maintain independence, choice and individuality.
We look to promote equal opportunity within residents, relatives/friends and staff irrespective of race, colour, gender, sexuality, ability and cultural or religious beliefs.
Support for relatives/friends and carers is believed to be as important as that for the resident and all staff in our care homes share this belief.
All of our staff believe that a holistic approach to resident care is of the utmost priority.
“My grandmother is very happy at the home. We, her family, are hugely happy with the care given by the home & staff.”
