Your plan, our action
When you arrive at Ivybank House, we will work with you to develop a personalised care plan that will include everything from your hobbies, exercise, and dietary preferences, to any health issues you might have. It will determine the level and type of care you receive. This can vary from minimal residential care to full support.
We aim not to use any agency staff. Our team members are passionate and caring and the majority have been with us for well over 5 years with some celebrating 10yrs or more service at the home. Team members take on specialist training, for example some specialise in end of life / palliative care.
Ivybank has lots going on. We are rightly proud of our activities programme which takes into account the residents we are currently caring for, their interests and wishes. The programme involves lots of variety from gardening to music, theatre to shopping trips. We even have a cat called Ivy at the home.
We provide a safe and homely place to live. Whether you are frail, at risk of falls or need a little rest and relaxation after an operation such as a hip or knee replacement, Ivybank might be just the place for you. We have a lively, chatty community where you can make friends and continue enjoying life or regain your joie de vivre!
Don’t worry, if your needs or preferences change, we’ll change your care plan too.
