What makes us different
As soon as you walk into an Advinia home, you’ll recognise the feeling. It feels like home ought to be: comfortable, welcoming, relaxed and safe. It’s the little touches that make a big difference, such as music and fresh flowers, community pets and – above all – a local staff team who are dedicated to their role and truly care.
Every resident has a designated carer who really gets to know each resident with whom they work. It’s not unusual for strong bonds of friendship to form between resident and carer, as carers understand ‘their’ resident’s personal preferences; from what time they like to wake up in the morning to their favourite meals. We often see designated carers developing relationships for family members to turn to at any time. This close relationship helps us anticipate needs and make sure that our residents receive the right care, in the right way, at the right time. That’s partly why we do not wear uniforms, to encourage a friendship and remove task driven care seen in so many institutionalised environments.
We’re here - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - because we love what we do. We care. At the same time, we recognise that good intentions are not always enough to ensure that we deliver the best care. So, every team member undergoes thorough and continued training to make sure that we always strive to deliver the highest quality care to all our residents. We are proud that almost every one of our homes has achieved a Fully Compliant status with the Care Quality Commission and aim to keep it this way.
Peace of Mind
From the moment you start talking to us, to the day you move in and for as long as you stay with us, we’re here to make life better. Whatever you need, we do what it takes to make sure you get it – from medical advice and support to an emergency response system in every suite. We also provide regular assessments so that as your needs change, we adapt our care accordingly. In addition, we communicate openly with family members, keeping everybody concerned up to date with any changes to a resident’s care plan.
It’s not just all about care. It’s about making sure that the care we deliver helps our residents to enjoy life to the full. Quite simply, we want to make every day special and create lots of magical moments. For people living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, our dementia care expertise provides a nurturing environment focused on preserving dignity, providing meaningful activities and offering ongoing support to residents and their families.
There’s always something going on at an Advinia home. A range of optional activities takes place every day, 7 days a week, designed around what our residents like doing. Whether it’s a discussion on the daily newspaper, playing WII games, music and dancing, arts and crafts or a talk from a visiting expert…you’ll always have something to look forward to. We are active members of NAPA (National association of Providers of Activities.)
