OUR NURSING CARE SETS US APART


We employ our own nurses

It is inevitable that, sooner or later, most elderly care residents will need nursing care, yet over the last decade, we have seen many care home operators move away from offering nursing care, relying instead on visiting community nurses.

At Avon Cliff, we have always believed that nursing is an intrinsic part of elderly care, and that as a care home, we have a moral obligation to provide our residents with whatever care they need, whenever they need it.

 

Reassurance 24 hours a day, seven days a week

You can’t put a price on peace of mind. We employ highly-skilled nurses to be on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that our residents can enjoy their homely surroundings, vibrant atmosphere and beautiful gardens with the reassurance that should they require nursing assistance at any time of the day or night, it’s not only available immediately, it’s provided by nurses they know, and who know them.

Your Care Services

Assisted Care

Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.

Nursing Care

Avon Cliff’s nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.

Residential Care

Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.

Short Stay & Respite

We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.

Dementia Care

Although Avon Cliff is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.

End Of Life

We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.

Wish you were here!

We aim to make every day worth writing about, and our residents enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what they’ve been up to at our residential and nursing home. Here are some of their recent highlights.

The words of our residents and relatives say more than we ever could.

“Thank you for looking after my Mum. I never wanted her to go into a care home, nor did she. But I could not have picked a better one. Especially in her last days, you were all amazing and looked after us as well as mum. Some people stood out and I would like to thank them, especially, Maria, who mum adored. Shaun, always tried to get her to lunch, Theresa with the tea and cake. Karen with her chats with Mum. Jairo who always welcomed us. Honestly so many more and sorry if I haven’t mentioned you. I will never forget your kindness.”

“My mother is a resident in Avon Cliff and I wanted to highlight how impressed my family and I are with the care and attention our mum is receiving. The staff are consistently kind and compassionate including reception staff. Teresa serving food and health care support staff, Karen and the delightful Maria, I am so impressed with their skill and attention. As a registered nurse I am very familiar with the values, knowledge, skills and behaviour required for residents and feel a huge relief when I witness these at Avon Cliff in the care of our very own dear mum. Thank you very much and very well done team.”
