Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Melissa Johnson here at Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Heywood Court Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"my mum was in another care home in heywood. She got out of there and was found on the patio, consequently she was very ill. I decided to move herto, heywood court, what a good choice I made. when she first moved in the doctor came to see her and said it was the end of life. The staff nursed her round the clock and now she is 100% better, unfortunatly she has lost the use of her legs. I couldnt ask for better care and would recommend heywood court 100%. All the staff from the cleaners to the carers are all great with the residents."
