Life at SCNH

We are proud to offer a first class, spacious environment in all our homes, allowing a luxurious and comfortable stay for our residents. Beautifully appointed and well – designed rooms offer facilities and expertise that provide for a lifestyle that is both happy and peaceful for those living here. Both residential and nursing settings have all the comforts and luxuries that one can expect to find ‘at home’, including stylishly decorated lounges, various dining areas, activity suites, and private, secure beautifully landscaped gardens. Bedrooms are tastefully furnished with excellent quality furniture and with modern but discreet nursing equipment. Personal bedrooms have a plasma screen TV with Sky viewing available, climate control allowing each room to be ambient in temperature according to personal preference. A private telephone, telephone number and internet connection are ready to use on the day of admission enabling both residents and their family and friends to ‘keep in touch ‘ at all times.

At SCNH, we prepare all meals in our kitchens using fresh, varied and locally sourced ingredients. We strive to ensure that all of our residents continue to enjoy highly nutritious and appetising dishes either in the congenial setting of our restaurant style dining rooms or in the comfort of a resident’s bedroom. Please follow our link to our typical SCNH rotating weekly menus.

Family and friends are welcome to participate in all our community activities and events – and free to come and go as they like. We encourage guests to spend time with residents at any time of day or night, so you never have to plan around “visiting hours.” We also recognise the importance of communicating openly and regularly with family members to ensure we are providing the very best service to our residents. We aim to make a real difference to the lives of our residents by providing a lifestyle of choice and activity that is centred on personal interests and thereby celebrating the individuality of our residents. Activities form an important part of the day and will range from a health focus with physiotherapy exercises, to the more fun activities such as trips to the local garden centre, hobbies, crafts, visits from the hairdresser and reminiscence therapy.

SCNH endeavours to provide a happy and fulfilling working environment for our staff with ongoing training and professional development provided by our highly qualified training team and specialist practice development nurse. Staff are carefully recruited by management and alongside the requirement for experience and knowledge of within the care industry, it is essential that they possess key personal attributes essential for providing quality and nurturing care that you and family can always expect. We employ very generous levels of staff and are proud to declare that our teams are dedicated, and passionate about their work. They feel well supported and are highly motivated individuals.
