Statement of Purpose
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Here at Seaton Hall we aim to recognise each person as an individual and to anticipate and fulfill their needs as such.
We will give all possible help and support to each person to adapt to the change in circumstances and new environment, such help extending to families if needed.
In a warm and homely environment, our team of dedicated staff will strive to achieve optimum independence, encouraging the person to play an active part in the planning of their care.
Should a person become terminally ill whilst in out care, we will strive to meet individual needs with a view to preserving independence for as long as possible and to promote a peaceful and dignified death. We will offer compassionate support to the relatives and friends of the bereaved.
All aspects of privacy, choice fulfillment and dignity will be strictly observed and followed.
Individual’s rights will never be compromised.
Seaton Hall strives to meet the needs of each individual. It is recognised that peoples needs will change and we ensure the promotion of rights and choices of each person are not compromised when planning. Each person will be involved (as far as possible) in the planning of their care, with each person being allocated a named key worker who is responsible for ensuring needs are met.
At all times we will promote individuality and preserve dignity.
We offer support to families /relatives should they wish to be involved.
We incorporate research findings and other appropriate changes whenever necessary and continually strive to maintain and improve standards by ensuring that all staff receive appropriate training.
People are encouraged to make decisions on factors affecting the home and to make their own choices on furnishings and décor in their individual rooms.
