People make the move into residential care for a variety of reasons; for some it is loneliness, having lost a partner or a means of connecting, for others it's through necessity due to ill-health or immobility. For some of our residents the decision has been well considered over time, for others the decision has been forced by circumstance.
Whatever the reason, the move to residential care is an emotional experience, there is excitement and relief at the prospect of feeling safe, secure and amongst friends but this is often accompanied by a sadness and fear at leaving behind the life once known.
At Glenvale Park we understand that the transition can be daunting and we quite literally roll out the red carpet to welcome new residents, we furnish them with all the information required to navigate this new life and we offer person-centred support 24 hours a day to minimise anxiety and offer reassurance.
Moving home is stressful, whether buying your first house, climbing the property ladder or downsizing but when you move into Glenvale Park you will be greeted with flowers, with chocolates, with guidance and support but most of all with smiles, lots of smiles.
