How we can help
Our homes provide the medical care needed during recovery time, as all our facilities are staffed with fully qualified, well trained and experienced nurses to get you back on your feet. Convalescent care is currently available at Amesbury Abbey in Wiltshire and Sutton Manor in Hampshire.
For many people, illness and injury can limit mobility in the short term. Our convalescent homes are stocked with all the necessary medical and surgical supplies, which means that families won’t have to struggle with acquiring, learning to use, and maintaining the items. We also have an independently run well established sports physiotherapy practice located at Amesbury Abbey, which is ideal for those recovering from an operation and requires some assistance in their recovery.
Our convalescent carers can take the stress out of the routine aspects of care, such as medications, dressing, medical equipment and everyday personal care. Where needed, our team can support your everyday personal care which includes bathing, washing and dressing, until you’re ready to do this by yourself. This can reduce the risk of complications and further hospital admissions, allowing you to concentrate on what's important – getting better.
If you choose to stay with us, you will be given an individual assessment to make sure all requirements can be met. This will also help us create a comprehensive convalescent care plan of care and recovery for you, enabling you to focus on your recovery with peace of mind knowing that you’ll be looked after.
Many of our patients choose to stay with us, not only for the great care we’re able to offer, but for the more homely touches, such as a range of activities, sensitive individualised care, lovely people and spectacular views.
A variety of meals are provided with an ever-changing menu from our highly talented chefs, for example dishes might include breaded pork schnitzel with a cream, brandy and mushroom sauce or breaded scallops with a lemon and parsley crumb with homemade chocolate and raspberry roulade for dessert.
