North Shore 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 25 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. North Shore aims to provide nursing care locally for people with Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease including early-onset and alcohol-induced. We consider the provisions of respite care, dependent on occupancy levels, if approached to do so.
The home has 25 single rooms, most are en-suite, and some rooms have sea views. We have accommodation on three floors with two lounge areas and a dining room on the ground floor. An additional small quiet lounge is located on the first floor. 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. The home has easy access to a number of bus routes, is within a few yards of a tram stop and the promenade. Local shops and hotels are only a short walk away. 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:
