We know and appreciate that moving home is a difficult experience and particularly for older people who are worried about losing independence, security and generally the unknown. We at Dalemain House try to make this transition as comfortable and reassurance as possible.
We offer a four week trial period where we get to know each other and help the new resident to settle in. After this period we formally meet with the resident and their family to discuss the way forward. Unusually this leads to a permanent placement.
We would like to stress that we always allow residents as much independence as they wish and would encourage them in this regard, always aware of their safety and security within the home and gardens
