Keep warm and well this winter at a Dormy Care Community
Date of news/blog: 26th October 2018
Winter is fast approaching and for elderly people, this is the worst time of year. Keeping a property warm, maintaining a garden, cooking a nutritious meal and even getting out and about in your local community – all things that bring more worry. Subsequently, people can become isolated and lonely – those with family far away might not see anyone for a long period of time and those simple pleasures like a trip to the hairdressers or meeting friends fall by the wayside.
At a Dormy Care Community, we understand the importance of feeling supported and having those things around you that help, not only make you feel good about yourself but not alone. All of our homes are warm and cosy, with a smiling face on hand the minute you come through our doors. Hot drinks and snacks are readily available as well as nutritious and tasty home cooked meals, all using local and seasonal produce. Our all-inclusive service means if you want a trip to our in-house hair salon and nail bar, it’s readily available – you don’t even need to leave our home! For those who still want to get out and about and explore the local area, our wheelchair accessible transport means regular trips out are on offer. With a daily activity programme available, there is all the opportunity to learn new skills, revisit lost hobbies and make new friends!
Most importantly caring, highly trained staff are on hand to help and support with whatever you might need. An assisted jacuzzi bath, a supported session with our personal trainer or maybe just someone to chat to over tea and cake in one of our well-stocked libraries – there really is something to help make winter more bearable for everyone.
Our homes also offer respite breaks for a relaxing holiday or those who need somewhere to recover from an operation or a period of illness.
Whatever you need this winter, visit a Dormy Care Community and speak with a member of our team. We are here to make a difference, after all, it’s our family caring for yours.
