Personalised care focused on maintaining independence and enhancing lifestyle
What is residential care?
Often people move into our Chingford care home as they have struggled to cope and stay safe living in their own home independently. This may be due to their changing care needs or because their home is not designed to support their ageing years.
Before living with us, and often despite regular visits and support from loving family and friends, many of our cherished residents have found themselves become more isolated over time – lacking the companionship of people their own age, as well as the mental and physical stimulation of accessible hobbies and interests.
Discreet and kind residential care around the clock
At The Spinney, we pride ourselves on being one of the leading residential care homes in Chingford, Essex. Our dedicated and trained deliver loving, high-quality care 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year within the comfort and safety of our beautiful .
With our kind and caring team on hand throughout the day and night, including our skilled registered nurses, and our sensitive and respectful approach to care, we are able to provide support and reassurance to our cherished residents whenever they need it, as well as provide much-needed peace of mind to loved ones.
Our team members are skilled at delivering kind and discreet care, which is personalised to each resident’s needs, likes, dislikes and aspirations for the future, coupled with gentle encouragement so each person can remain as independent as possible. This is just one of the qualities which sets us apart from other residential care homes in Essex.
Whilst the level of care is specifically tailored to each resident, it may include personal care, taking medication, relishing a home-cooked meal, enjoying one of the many activities and events on offer or socialising whilst developing new hobbies.
Within our beautiful home, we have a range of features and areas to relax and socialise in, including a Bistro, a Hair and Beauty Salon and a spacious conservatory leading out to the garden. We have three additional dining rooms and several large communal lounges, one of which boasts calming views of the local golf course and forest. We are proud that The Spinney provides our cherished residents with a warm and welcoming environment in which to spend their days, surrounded by opportunities to live life to the fullest.
Although we are mainly a residential home, we have a wonderful dementia community which is sunny and bright with lots of colourful flowers, plants and music playing. The hand rails are a different colour to the walls so that they stand out and are easily spotted, lessening risk of falls.
Every floor has an assisted bath so that all residents are able to enjoy a soak in the tub if they choose. We have both full sling and stand aid hoists and although we are not a nursing home, we are able to provide nursing beds for those who prefer, as this can help residents be more independent in getting in and out of bed.
Where family and friends are always welcome
Family and friends remain a vital part of many of our residents’ lives and we welcome them with open arms at any time at our residential care home in Chingford. Whilst we’re there to take care of each resident, their loved ones are able to spend quality time with them, enjoying a meal together, chatting over a freshly made coffee in our bistro, taking part in an activity or simply catching up in one of our quiet areas .
We also understand at times, it can be difficult to see your loved one’s needs changing or the effect their health condition has on them. This is why we’re also always there for family and friends to have a chat over a cuppa, bring you up to speed on the exciting things your loved one has been involved with and provide general reassurance and guidance. Our regular carer events are also the perfect time to receive professional advice on things such as funding care and understanding dementia.
A home for life
We are proud of our ability to provide dementia care, day care, respite care and end of life care within our home. This provides flexibility for people, whether that’s for those who prefer a short-term stay whilst they get to know us, to those settling in for a permanent move.
As someone’s care needs change, we’re there to review what they need so they can continue living their lives feeling safe and contented. We work closely with a wealth of community and clinical professionals to ensure our residents’ care needs are met. These include district nurses, GPs, dentists and chiropodists.
We provide low, medium and high-dependency residential support for residents, which includes administering medication. Residents can transition easily as their needs change. In fact, the majority of our residents spend many years living happily in our Chingford care home.
We understand that navigating the care system can be confusing and it’s sometimes difficult to know where to turn and what to do for the best. With this in mind, the team at our residential care home in Chingford are on hand to offer guidance, chatting through options and supporting you.
