Care

 

There are different ways for us to help you. Each person is unique, and we will work with you and your family to see exactly what it is you require in the way of specific help.  We have nurses and carers on duty twenty four hours a day and, whilst they are always there to help and advise, we will agree with you as to how much support you need. Your independence where possible is an important part of the ethos here at Denville.


You will have your own room with en suite shower and WC and a call system to summon help. We can furnish your room for you, including a TV, or you can bring your own favourite things.  Most people choose to have their own BT telephone line installed, but we have two portable phones for incoming calls that can be brought to you, should you choose not to.


Our GP holds regular surgeries but you are free to choose any local doctor.  The presence of trained staff means that going to hospital is seldom necessary but if it’s unavoidable then we’ll keep your room ready and waiting, until you come home again.


There are five kinds of care at Denville Hall.  After finding the one that is right for you, we will reassess your needs regularly, so that you know you will always get the support you require.

 

Residential Care

This is for you if you want minimal assistance but to know that you are safe and looked after;  this is your home, but it’s a home where you know you’ll always have someone to turn to if you are worried or need help.  Quite a few of our residents go out to work still, but like to feel that when they come home there are friends to share their time with, meals prepared for them, activities to join in with if they are wanted, companionship is on hand if you’re in the mood for company, privacy and peace if you want to be alone without being lonely.

 

Enhanced Residential Care

This is for when you need a bit more help if you can’t manage things as easily on your own but you don’t need full nursing.  You might need carers to spend more time with you and this level of care gives you that option.

 

Nursing Care

You might have on-going nursing needs, or need help with medicine that you take. You may need a lot of support or a little. Our experienced nurses will look after you, our physiotherapist will help you regain your strength and our carers will assist you in every way that they can to live well and improve your life and your happiness.

 

Dementia Care

Denville Hall works in partnership with Dementia Care Matters. The Butterfly Household Model of Care was founded by Dr David Sheard in 1995 where the model was extensively piloted over a 5-year period at a care home called Merevale House in the UK. Denville Hall's very own Jeanne's Wing is built on this model, thanks to a generous gift from Baroness Jeanne de Rothschild, once an actress known as Jeanne Stuart.

Our carers and nurses take inspirational training courses to learn how best to understand and help you. You can join in with entertainments and all sorts of activities, and you’ll know that when you are in the Wing itself you are in a safe environment, with the best care from people who really understand how to look after you.

 

Palliative Care

It is very important at this time that you are treated with respect and dignity, in safe and peaceful surroundings with carers and nurses who are wise and kind. At Denville Hall, we discuss your needs and decisions with you and your family, to ensure all of these things happen.

 

Short Stay

You can come to us for a short stay, too. Perhaps you want to come in for a few weeks while your family is away, get back on your feet after an operation or illness, or because you want a break with like-minded company.  We even have people who come to us for Christmas because they have so much fun at Denville Hall.  Convalescent care and short stay breaks can give you and your family the temporary support that you all need.
