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 Newstone House, 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.

The home is split into six distinct house groups, with a dedicated facility on the first floor for people living with dementia. We also provide access to an Admiral Nurse, a specialist in dementia care giving expert practical, clinical and emotional support to families facing the challenges of dementia.

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

Newstone House 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.

Dementia Care

Our home has a dedicated dementia community that promotes a stimulating and engaging environment where residents who are living with dementia can live life at their own pace, maintaining a sense of purpose, independence and belonging.

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.

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.

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 Newstone House. Here are some of their recent highlights.
