Philosophy of Care
Amherst Court aims to provide its residents with a secure, relaxed, and homely environment in which their care, well-being and comfort is of prime importance.
Our Carers will strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all residents within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so will be sensitive to the residents ever changing needs.
Such needs may be medical/therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social and residents are encouraged to participate in the development of their individualised Plan of Care, as are family and friends where appropriate.
This will be achieved through programmes of activities designed to encourage mental alertness, self esteem, and social interaction with other residents and with recognition of the core values of care which are fundamental to the philosophy of our home.
