The decision to think about moving an older relative or friend into a care home is one of the hardest decisions people have to make. To help ease this transition, Brendoncare Froxfield is offering a free trial for a relative to move in alongside the new resident, so they can help them settle into their new surroundings.
The resident and relative will each be given a room so they can isolate together for up to two weeks, to ensure safety for them and their fellow residents. This will also provide the opportunity for them to get to know the staff and work together on individual needs and preferences.
Maria Wegner, Home Manager at Brendoncare Froxfield, said, “We know how hard it can be to be apart from a loved one at this time and we wanted to be able to help in any way possible. We are delighted to be able to offer free rooms for a relative or friend, so they can isolate together. We look forward to welcoming new residents into our lovely home.”
Brendoncare Froxfield is run by Winchester-based charity, The Brendoncare Foundation. It is situated between Hungerford and Marlborough and is a nursing home which caters for 44 residents and includes a specialist 11 bed dementia care household. Froxfield has been specifically designed to enable older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives.
