The home can excellently accommodate residential care. We provide a range of activities where residents can interact with one another and with staff on duty, we encourage outings and most importantly aim to maintain each individual's independence. Tilsley House is a home and not an institution - where able, we hope residents are able to go on trips or even on a wander down to the shops, beach or just across the road to the local park.
We aim to stimulate our residents and to personalise the care provided to them as much as possible. We also actively encourage family and friend involvement and try to include everyone as much as possible as we map out the best form of care tailored to suit needs, wishes and preferences. We have a number of clients who regularly go home to families for meals, special occasions and outings and think this is an excellent way for residents to interact with others outside of the home. We work closely with health professionals and families to provide quality care for our residents and to ensure that their lives in Tilsley House are relaxing, rewarding and above all caring.
