Moving to a care home
Helpful words of advice
We are aware that the transition into care can be a distressing one for individuals, relatives and friends, and you will wish to consider all aspects before making a decision. Our Company Director acknowledges this when he said:
"I know that deciding to move into a care home is a difficult decision at the best of times. Prospective residents, their family and friends experience a wide range of difficult emotions. We at Tilsley House will do all we can to help you through this difficult transition and help residents settle in quickly and happily.
At Tilsley House we strongly believe that for many older people, moving to a care home can provide considerable benefits: to have full time care; to be in the company of others to take away the loneliness; to enjoy regular, tasty, varied and nutritious mealtimes with friends; to have the opportunity to participate in a full range of activities to keep mind, body and soul active according to the individual’s interests and capabilities.
Our fully trained staff look after every individual in the knowledge that they are unique. We believe we can make a difference to every one of our residents by providing personalised care and attention in an environment filled with love, warmth and security.
Tilsley House is a lovely and homely care home. We only have 31 single bedrooms, and we take great pride in the upkeep of our residents’ home.
We like to think that the staff and residents together, are like an extended family. We would be delighted to show you around" (Rizwan Govindji, 2020).
