Prior to arrival
Prior to arrival, a friendly member of the senior team will make an appointment with yourself to carry out an assessment to see if we can realistically meet your care needs. Preferably, this will take place at Catherine Miller House so that you can get a feel for the place & make sure you are happy with the home. But we are more than welcome to meet yourself at your place of choosing.
During the assessment we will go through what a care plan is with you & construct it with you, after all nobody knows you better than yourself.
We will discuss your dependency, capability and in turn, what we are able to do to help you live as independently as possible. You are the focal point of the home - It's essential that we get the assessment process right. We wont rush you, nor will we pressure you into making any decisions on the spot. If something doesn't feel right or if you have any unanswered questions; please let us know!
