The in-house care provided by Hawkinge House is planned and monitored by Registered Nurses at all times. This enables most residents to be accommodated within the scheme for life.
The philosophy behind our nursing care is that residents should be able to live in the home with dignity and have the respect of those who support them. They should be entitled to live a full and active life and be given the fundamental right to self-determination and individuality in order to achieve their full potential. We believe that this is best achieved by sensitive recognition and nurturing of that potential in each individual and understanding that this may change with time. In order to ensure that this happens, each resident's care is planned individually.
We seek to ensure that the care in the home is not institutionalised by the requirements of the staff and that these basic rights are accorded to all residents in our care without discrimination between one resident group and another. The programmes of activities have been designed to encourage mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction with other residents.
We have endeavoured to make the terms and conditions in the Nursing Home Handbook as clear and easy to read as we can. The Admission Agreement confirming acceptance of these terms and conditions needs to be signed before any placement commences. All fees need to be paid using the following Direct Debit Mandate.
