Long term care

Our aim

We strive to deliver high quality personalised care, in a well-appointed residential setting for up to 28 residents.
Our aim is to provide excellent 24-hour care and support. The home works in close collaboration with residents and families, promoting independence wherever possible. Care is focused on the resident as an individual, promoting a sense of wellbeing and fulfilment in a dignified and respectful way. The environment is one of comfort, safety and security enhancing quality of life.

Digital documentation of care

All care is documented digitally with Person Centred Software.
Next-of-kin have access to the daily care story, the plan and activities of their loved ones through the Relatives Gateway.
Residents are encourage to take part in the daily decisions of their care and are consulted on a regular basis.

The rooms

Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with photographs, pictures and ornaments. Each room is appropriately furnished and decorated, but space can always be made for personal items, furniture as well. Each individual and communal room has been fitted with a Call Bell System to enable residents to call for assistance day and night.

Each room also has a TV connection and Wi-Fi is available throughout the home. New residents have the option of Fire Kindle.
There are ample bathing and toilet facilities. Care staff are available to assist with individual needs.

The home has a big lounge, sitting areas in the library and throughout the home and dining room.

Visiting a resident

Stonebow House operates an open visiting policy. You may visit any time and any day without appointment. Just ring the bell.

During the current situation with the Covid-19 we are changing our visiting policy. For further updates on this please refer to our BLOG page which will be updated when any changes are made.

Complimentary refreshments are always available for visitors and you will be welcome to enjoy a meal with your loved one.

Health visitors and medication

Doctors and nurses from Pershore Medical Practise will visit Stonebow House as required or requested. Upon admission every resident will be registered for care. Well trained and qualified care staff will administer medication as per prescription. Medication prescribed is ordered, collected and received by the senior members of the care team.

We also organise regular visits by chiropodists, dentists and opticians although this is a private arrangement at the residents’ own cost.
