Welcome To Our Home
The Gables Care Home specialises in residential person centred and dementia care. This tranquil home is situated near to shops and the town and is within easy reach of public transport. Qualified carers offer residents and their families the support they need during what many find as trying times. Our home has been adapted to provide a warm and comfortable environment for each of our elderly residents. We are situated in a quiet area of Chesterfield and in private ownership. The property is tastefully decorated to provide that homely feel.
We provide person centred care. Carers want to get to know their residents and their families, thus enabling them to look after the whole person and not just to concentrate on the task in hand. We welcome residents who are privately financed and those funded by Chesterfield Local Authorities. Fees depend on the particular accommodation chosen and the care needs of the resident. Additional services requested by the resident or their nominated representative can be provided
Are an important part of the daily life at our home. The Activities Organiser develops individual activity schedules tailored to the personal lives and interests of our residents. We provide a mix of weekly activities from entertainment to workshops, days out and social events.
List of Activities:
♦ Art and crafts workshops
♦ Music and dance activities
♦ Bingo, concerts and quizzes
♦ Occupational therapy
♦ Manicure and pedicure
♦ Outings to local shops
♦ Visits to local restaurants
♦ Pamper Sessions
♦ Chair Football
With our staff on hand at all times, each activity is designed to mentally & physically stimulate our residents, and to enhance their quality of life and wellbeing. This helps our staff to get to know each and every resident, and take pride in listening, understanding and responding to their needs.
Participation is entirely voluntary and families can take part if they wish. To further improve their feeling of well-being we provide our residents with weekly visits from local hairdressers, chiropodists, and local religious leaders of all denominations.
At The Gables, we firmly believe that people ought to eat the food they enjoy. A dietician might pull their hair our but we continue to adhere to the view that the enjoyment of food takes preference over healthy eating though hopefully the two things are not always in opposition.
We give food a very high priority. The main reason is, that it is one pleasure we can all enjoy, and secondly we have found that older people, especially when alone, just can't be bothered to prepare food for themselves so eating an appetising range of food is a vital aspect of feeling better.
All meals are prepared in the modern kitchen using fresh ingredients. Special diets are catered for and residents suggestions regarding the variety of the menus are encouraged.
Meals may be taken our elegant dining room, or in the residents own room if preferred. We at The Gables are exceedingly flexible and are more than happy to accommodate your routine. You may choose to continue your routine or adapt to life within our home.
