St Stephens has been operating as a Care Home since 1985 and has offered Nursing Care since 1996. The home prides itself on providing the highest standard of care for 31 individual service users within our home-like, family and friendly environment. During the pre-admission assessment, the compatibility and appropriateness of placement will be considered at all times. We will discuss with your social worker and health care workers what your needs are and how we can meet them.
St Stephens aims to provide nursing care locally for people with Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease including early onset. We consider the provision of respite care, dependent on occupancy levels, if approached to do so.
Home has 27 single rooms, some of which are en-suite, and two double rooms. We have accommodation on three floors with a lounge area on the ground floor. Some bedrooms have sea views and each room has a nurse call system, fire detectors, radiator heating. All of our rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished. Residents are welcome to personalise their rooms with their own belongings and pictures. Personal furniture can be brought into your room by arrangement. We have a number of electric profiling beds and pressure relieving mattresses which are provided for individuals where there is a clinical need.
The home has easy access to a number of bus routes, is within a few yards of a tram stop and the promenade. There are local shops and hotels within a short walking distance. Residents are able to keep their own GP if the home is in their catchment area, or we can arrange registration with the local practice, who visit the home frequently. We will assist in accessing other NHS services that are required for residents.
We have a dedicated team of Registered Nurses who provided nursing care 24 hours a day. The nurses are supported by our team of carers, who are NVQ qualified in Health and Social Care. Our care team is supported by our laundry, Cleaning and Catering Staff. Other services and facilities include:
