Bondcare are proud providers of residential care across the UK, owning and operating a number of residential care homes of the highest standard. Please read on to find out more about what residential care is and what we offer.
What is residential care?
Residential care is provided for people who are able to retain a certain level of independence in their day-to-day life. Residential care may include things like assistance with eating, washing, dressing and general mobility, but residents are also encouraged to do things independently where they can. Nursing care, by comparison, caters for people who need specialist care for medical issues.
What can I expect from a Bondcare residential care home?
At Bondcare, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standards of residential care across all our qualifying homes. Our residential care homes are staffed by qualified care assistants who hold NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) and RQF (Regulated Quality Framework) to levels 2 or 3, so you can have complete faith in the quality of the care we provide.
Our carers will assist residents with everyday tasks such as eating, dressing, washing and getting around, but residents are also encouraged to enjoy independence where possible. We keep individual care plans for each of our residents so that we can keep track of their needs on a day-to-day basis. Our activities coordinators organise a wide range of social activities to help keep the residents stimulated and active where possible, including trips to local shops and amenities, knitting and games.
To maintain the welcoming atmosphere of a home, we allow residents to add their own personal touches to their rooms, and furniture can be brought in subject to prior agreement. Everything is geared towards creating a welcoming, warm and supportive environment that ensures residents have access to everything they need.
