Moving Into a Four Seasons Home
We are working with hospitals, healthcare professionals, local authorities and family members to continue to welcome new residents into our homes. We follow latest government guidance to ensure moving into the home is comforting and supportive for all new residents whilst keeping the welfare and safety of residents and colleagues our top priority.
Current government guidelines include an initial period of self-isolation for 14 days to ensure the continued safety of existing residents and team members. During this time, new residents are supported to feel at home in their bedroom but they will not feel alone. With a personalised care plan, every new resident will have proposed activities for them to participate in during this time, supported by various members of the team to cater for their personal needs and ensure they are comfortable.
During this time, new residents have time to settle into their new room so they can begin to feel at home quickly. Members of our team will spend lots of time with new residents; finding out all about them, including preferences, interests and those things that they hold dear. This way we can create a personalised care plan that not only supports care needs but also overall wellbeing. Every new resident will have proposed activities for them to participate in during this time, supported by various members of the team so the person soon feels comfortable and part of the family. Check out our Home to Home Promise that explains in more detail just how we do this.
New residents will also be supported to keep in touch with friends and family members, making full use of technology through video calls, social media updates and telephone calls.
After this initial two week period, the team will then introduce them to the rest of the team in the home and their fellow residents.
Our Home Manager will be happy to discuss moving into the home in detail so that you know what to expect and can feel confident in the move in process.
