Our aim is to provide the highest standard of care for elderly people in a comfortable and secure environment.
- Our residents' independence and dignity is of paramount importance to us. Residents are encouraged to retain a level of independence according to their abilities and wishes.
- All residents are treated as individuals. We wish to establish a flexible approach to their needs, so that each individual can be given the care that is most suited to them, taking into account personal choices and abilities.
- Residents are encouraged to make choices and decisions for themselves, within their capabilities. To this end a Key Worker is essential to be responsible for the ascertaining and recording of each individual residents' case history.
- It is important that residents are encouraged to participate in social events and continue with hobbies or develop new ones. Staff spend time stimulating leisure and other interests to maximise the quality of life for each individual.
- Although the comfort within the home is of primary importance, we also believe that the provision of a garden area is important. Comfortable seating areas are provided and flowers and hanging baskets planted. For those who are unable or unwilling to leave the Home, bird tables and feeders provide interest from within the public rooms.
- Although no-one need be alone unless they choose to be, the residents' right to privacy is respected at all times.
- Residents are treated with respect at all times enabling each individual to maintain a sense of dignity.
- We are committed to providing the highest standard of care for our residents. The care which we offer covers all aspects of a residents' life. We are dedicated to working together with each individual to empower them to live the life they choose.
We have endeavoured and will continue to endeavour to make North Argyll Home a home from home. An excellent quality of life is available here, as many residents have already experienced.
