Our approach to care

At Sherwood House, we are dedicated to providing individual care with dignity and respect that meets each individual’s needs.

Resident and carer

We employ an informal, relaxed approach to ensure that we maintain our home from home feel, but we always deliver our care with absolute professionalism.

Working with residents, we develop personalised care plans that reflect their needs and review plans on a regular basis to ensure all care requirements are met.

Local volunteers, trained in befriending or delivering activities are a vital part of our community at Sherwood House. They work with our residents to support active and fulfilled lives.

We support and accompany residents on medical appointments, and if needed we’ll arrange for doctors and nurses to visit the home.

We also offer respite care to individuals, for varying lengths of time, dependent on their needs. Whether they are with us for a few days, or a few weeks, a pre-admission assessment is always undertaken, to ensure that the care we offer meets each person’s individual needs and requirements.

We have a number of people who enjoy coming to us for regular respite throughout the year, they see it as a little holiday.
