Living at Hopton
Our residents do not live in our workplace, we work in their homes.
We pride ourselves in providing first-class service for your Mum while she makes herself at home in a luxury purpose-built environment.
We have 3 seperate & homely neighbourhoods where our residents get to know each other. Our unique design has been mad on 20 years of experience in looking after older people.
Why are there 3 neighbourhoods at Hopton Cottage?
If your Mum is maybe a bit frail but still mentally alert then she may not wish to be living around people with dementia. That’s a situation that could easily become very confusing & distressing for her.
In 20 years of looking after older people this has been one of the complaints I’ve encountered the most. When care homes house all their residents together, each individual resident just doesn’t get care tailored to their exact needs.
So at Hopton we have 3 distinct areas or neighbourhoods:
In Woodend residents are mentally alert but may be a bit frail or have other health needs.
In Riverside we take care of residents who experience some memory problems or early stage dementia. These folks are generally aware of who they are & where they are but may get a bit mixed up at times.
It doesn’t matter if they ever make ‘mistakes’ nor will they live with people who demonstrate more advanced stages of dementia.
In Greenway every resident has a formal diagnosis of dementia. Our residents range from moderate to more advanced stages of dementia.
We are not a ‘Challenging Behaviour Unit’ but we do look after people who may at times present some challenging or what might be considered ‘unusual’ behaviour.
We have more advanced training for our staff at Greenway. As well as increased staffing levels at key times.
The manager & deputy manager both specialise in dementia.
Our home is very spacious & based entirely on the ground floor. There are large 20m² bedroom suites with beautiful ensuites. Featuring:
- Standing or sit down showers to meet Mum’s needs
- Comfort height toilets & basins with arthritis friendly taps
Quality of Accomadation
Our lounges are spacious yet homely and there are several other sitting areas for Mum to relax in.
There is lots of space throughout the building to wander about freely & stretch her legs throughout the winter months.
WiFi is available in all our lounges & Mum has the option to have her own internet connection & personal phone fitted.
Full digital TVs with DVD Players are provided in each room. With all the sports & any other pay channels she wishes.
She can relax while we take care of all her cooking, medication, cleaning & laundry.
This works very well for people who feel their independence is important but for whom home-based care packages are no longer effective.
