Long Stay

Long Stay Residential Care is designed for people who need assistance with the essential activities of daily living. You will make the transition to residential care while still retaining your highest level of ability, autonomy and independence. You will exercise choice in your way of life and make personal decisions in relation to your care.

You will choose the level of support you require and can opt to receive assistance with your health, social and personal care. Meal preparation and domestic duties such as cleaning and laundry will be provided. Your care environment will be comfortable, safe and warm.

You can be as busy as you want to be, choosing from a daily programme of recreational activities. You can choose to spend time in private or visit one of the communal areas to meet with other residents. Your family and friends are always welcome to visit.

Residential care offers you support with the essential activities of daily living, allowing you more time to focus on the things you enjoy doing. Choosing residential care is a life changing decision but it can be a hugely positive one. A little support can go a long way towards improving your wellbeing and quality of life.

Our long stay offering includes:

Respite Care

Respite Care is designed to offer a short stay respite period for you, your family and/or professional carer. A medical referral is not required and you are welcome to arrange respite care directly with us. Most respite stays are agreed in advance and the care period can be as long or short as you wish, subject to accommodation availability.

A care plan will be created, based on your social care and health needs, and your care will be provided in accordance with your wishes and preferences.

When your stay is complete, Silver Stream will maintain your care plan should you wish to return or avail of our continuing care options.

Respite care can also be conducive to assessing whether residential care is a suitable care option for you, allowing you to partake in the daily activities of the home, without fully committing to long stay care.

Our respite care offering includes:

Dementia Care

The term ‘dementia’ is an umbrella term which is used to describe a range of symptoms including loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning.

Our Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Memory Focused Care Program is designed for people who are affected by memory problems, including people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

A diagnosis of dementia can come as a shock. Even if you are expecting it, this will be a worrying and upsetting time. You and your family will need lot of reassurance and support.

The complexities associated with dementia conditions often provide the greatest challenges to independent living. The good news is that research is being carried out every day, and while it may not change your diagnoses, there are lots of positive ways in which you can improve and extend your wellbeing and quality of life.

Our staff are experienced and specifically trained to care for people who have developed dementia. Our professional care teams will be there to support you and your family at this difficult time.

At Silver Stream we promote the principles of person-centred care. The person-centred care approach focuses on the individual, not the illness or conditions. Instead of treating you as a collection of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, person centred care considers you as a whole, taking into account your unique qualities, abilities, interests, preferences and needs.

By adopting a person-centred approach to care delivery, coupled with the latest complementary therapies and focused activity programmes, we can ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved within a safe and caring environment.

Our dementia care offering includes:

Convalescence Care

Convalescence Care is designed to provide an important transitional phase immediately after discharge from hospital.

A short stay in residential care will offer you comprehensive nursing and medical care in a comfortable and homely environment. Receiving convalescence care immediately after discharge from hospital can greatly assist in restoring your confidence towards full recovery and integration back into the community as quickly as possible.

Following a convalescence care period, you will be consulted on whether you wish to return home or avail of our continuing care options.

Our convalescence care offering includes:

End of Life Care

Nearing the end of life, or being diagnosed with a chronic or terminal illness, can be a traumatic time for you and your family. Choosing end of life care with Silver Stream can ensure that you continue to receive care that meets your physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs whilst respecting your care choices, dignity and autonomy.

When you are nearing the end of your life, one of the most empowering things you can do is make plans for your care. Advanced care planning ensures that you are aware of the options and opportunities available to you. It allows you time to discuss your wishes and preferences in relation to your care with your loved ones.

Including residential care as an option offers an additional support tier when coping with your illness. All care options can be adapted and developed depending on your needs. Your care team will work in consultation with the multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals involved to ensure the optimum level of care and assistance.

A step away from the clinical hospital setting, we can continue to provide quality medical and nursing care, but in a private, homely and caring environment. We have care procedures in place so that the resident is only transferred to an acute setting when there are specific or advanced medical requirements that are outside our care practices.

All end of life care is provided by your personal care team, ensuring that your care is provided in a personal way, by people who know you, and understand the decisions and choices you have made in relation to your care.
