OVERVIEW

Rated 'Good' by CQC in October 2018!

A purpose built 90 bed care facility, which provides residential and dementia care, we also provide respite care which can provide much needed relief for those caring for a family member at home.

Residents enjoy 24-hour care from the friendly and experienced staff who strive to meet the needs and wishes of every individual in a person-centred manner. Everyone benefits from state-of-the-art facilities, which are high quality and based on the latest research into care for elderly people to offer a warm and inviting place to live at an affordable price.

To ensure our home is as welcoming as possible, we allow the large open social area on the ground floor to be used as an opportunity for social gatherings, in house activities, live music and entertainment. The seating is arranged in a manner which encourages interaction, whilst maintaining opportunity for privacy. We have a variety of smaller lounges on each floor giving the building a homely feel, where small functions, quiet time and small group activities can be undertaken. Our wider corridors allow wheelchair and walking frame users to get around easily. The four dining areas focus on nutrition, another prospect for socialisation as residents and visitors can access drinks and light snacks from the kitchenettes that are situated in each dining area.

Ladysmith Care Home aims to provide high-standard accommodation and care for single occupancy and are decorated to the highest standards, with vibrant, plush fabrics and soft carpets or wood look flooring, offering an aesthetically pleasing and above all comfortable environment.

To further encourage socialisation, daily activities, weekly exercise, Thai Chi classes, trips, pet therapy and hairdressing will be available to all residents. Everything is organised and coordinated by two therapists, employed specifically to ensure residents are happy, entertained and as active and stimulated as possible. The company provides a generous budget for the provision of social activities in addition to the home’s own fund raising to ensure the highest quality of life is lived by each service user.

GET IN TOUCH

Tom Hussy found inspiration in sharing the experience of a WWII veteran… Despite having returned from ‘the front’ many years previously, he still lived every day in that earlier age, and in his world, had only just come home… That was the man he saw.

At Knights Care, we empower people to celebrate their memories, to cherish their history, to embrace their experiences. We value the chance to listen, learn, and to share their journey with them, wherever that might lead… We strive to enable them to continue that journey, safely, proudly.  Doctors or dancers, barmen or barbers, vets or veterans – we respect every individual as just that. They follow, we lead.

COMPLIMENTS

We would like to thank everyone for looking after our dad so well. We appreciate all you did for him. The care & kindness shown in all you did for him did not go unnoticed by us. To the day & night carers, office staff, laundry, kitchen, cleaners & everyone that helped provide the excellent service he received – we thank you all. It was nice to see so many of you at the home on the day of his funeral, we were moved to know so many of you cared about him. It was so nice to have you join us and have a chat afterwards. All of you always made us feel welcome on our visits to dad and we were always felt he was comfortable and safe. Dad was so special to us & it is nice to know that a little bit of his magic touched you too! Our thanks and best wishes to you all and we hope Ladysmith continues to achieve such high standards."

"To All the lovely staff at the Ladysmith road care home. I just wanted to thank you all for looking after my mum Madge in room, so very well. She has been with you a couple of times now for respite care both times for a few weeks she has received such good care and attention from everyone there and has been happy with you all. Its such a comfort knowing that when she can’t be at home she is being so well looked after here and is happy, well and content knowing she is safe, and help is always at hand when needed. Your staff are so welcoming and caring it’s a pleasure to visit visit her and talk to her. I know mum will be coming back her again for periods of respite care on a more regular basis. So, I look forward to seeing you all then. Much love and special wishes are being sent your way "

TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES
12 th MARCH 2020
REF: COVID – 19: RESPONSE MEASURES AND MANAGEMENT PLAN


It is with regret that I am writing to you to confirm that we have closed all our homes to non-
essential visitors. This is with immediate effect, 12 March 2020.

Essential health service and emergency personnel will still enter our home, as will appropriate new
admissions as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our county health services, and of
course offering care to those who urgently need it.

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, it follows detailed analysis of all current information
and advice available from the government, health authorities and other relevant sources.

Our priority has to be to protect the health and wellbeing of all our residents. They represent some of
the most vulnerable in our healthcare system, and as such are at the highest risk from this dangerous
virus. We must do all we can to minimise that risk and to protect them, we felt we had no choice but
to take this decision.

I am genuinely sorry for any inconvenience or distress this might cause, but I am sure you understand
that perhaps a relatively small sacrifice now might go a long way to averting a far bigger one in days
and weeks to come.

If there is a situation that requires a non-routine visit, we would ask that you discuss this with the
Registered Manager of the home to ensure that the appropriate precautionary measures are taken to
limit any potential risk.

In addition, we are limiting visits overall, and visits from the local community and external
entertainment are cancelled for the foreseeable future. Our staff will do all they can to ensure that life
in our services remains as comfortable and sociable as possible. We will still ensure that vital medical
visits are made and will be sure that only visitors who are not displaying symptoms come in, and that
they wash their hands on entering.

We are able to offer various options to assist you to stay in touch, including ‘phones to the bedside
and even ‘face time’ and skype calls. Let us know if we can help in any way to facilitate these
facilities for you. We will also post updates regarding both incident management progress, and
resident activity and wellbeing across all our social media platforms, keep a good eye there as well!

We remain dedicated to ensuring and protecting the health and wellbeing of our residents and
team, of friends and families, I know you are too. Thank you for your consistent support it is
hugely appreciated and valued.

Yours Sincerely
Adam Knights,
Managing Director
