Taking Care to know you, so everyone feels at home
A Warm Welcome to Lisnisky Care Home
What makes the resident experience at Lisnisky so special? We believe it’s our real sense of ‘family’ that has kindness, friendliness and respect right at its heart.
Our team welcomes frail elderly residents whose needs range from help with everyday activities such as washing, dressing and eating to nursing support for long-term medical conditions. We also offer intermediate care as an alternative to time in hospital and respite stays to give home carers a well-earned break. In every case we’re here to provide all the care each person’s own family could wish for. Lisnisky is situated within easy reach of shops and other amenities including public transport. All areas of our home are fresh and cheerful with a choice of lively or quiet communal spaces where residents can relax with each other or sit with family and friends.
Every day we work to make our service even better.
Thanks to our pioneering digital technology, everyone is encouraged to record their suggestions for the kind of care they want using our very simple iPad system. Residents, families and visiting professionals such as GPs and social workers are all invited to offer their ideas to help us keep on raising our standards. Each day people are telling us what they like, or what they feel we could do better. All comments are received directly by our Home Manager who will take any necessary actions immediately. Rest assured, no care home provider is working harder to make every individual resident’s experience special.
Professional, practical and personal
Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training. As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day.
Stimulation for body & mind
Our dedicated Activities Leader gently encourages residents to carry on doing the things they enjoy. Another aspect of helping our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. If they had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new. The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
Mealtimes are a highlight of our day
We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dieticians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can eat in our pleasant dining rooms or, if they prefer, we’re pleased to serve them their meal in the privacy of their own rooms.
All the comforts of home
Our home provides interiors and facilities that are modern and welcoming. We encourage all residents to make their bedrooms feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures, mementos and small items of furniture.
Residents at Lisnisky have a choice of bright spacious lounges for conversation or watching TV and a quiet library room with a good selection of books, all perfect places to meet with visitors. In the warmer months people like to get together outdoors in our large gardens which include a secure enclosed garden and the sights, sounds and fragrances of our sensory planting area.
We’d be delighted to show you around to experience our homely, welcoming atmosphere for yourself so please arrange to pop in for a chat.
