“Care needs to be just as important as treatment. Older people should be adequately valued and listened to and treated with compassion, dignity and respect at all times. They need to be cared for by skilled staff who are engaged, understand the particular needs of older people and have time to watch them. ”

Many people remain healthy, engaged and active well into later life. However, increasing age also increases the chance of long-term medical conditions such as frailty, dementia, disability, dependence or social isolation. Whilst the aim is always to prevent these problems or to help people live well with them, to retain their independence and keep them out of the hospital, in the end, we must also be realistic in acknowledging that older people often do need specialised care. Usually, after a spell of illness, they will sometimes move into a private frail care facility.

If you are looking for a private frail care facility for yourself or a loved one, here are some of the things you should take note off:

  • What sort of care is available, and what times of the day? Our luxury frail care facility has a dedicated ward, ensuring loved ones have access to 24/7 nursing with carers professionally trained to aid those in frail care. Residents in these wards enjoy dedicated frail care services whilst maintaining a high standard of living.
  • Will your loved one still have a good quality of life, or will they be confined to a small room with minimal social interaction? At our frail care facility, we offer residents occupational therapy and a stimulating activities program.
  • Are laundry and housekeeping included in the monthly frail care fee? This is often an overlooked factor when seeking a private frail care facility, but linen changes can be frequent when caring for the elderly.
  • What do their surroundings look like? Research has shown that your environment can significantly impact your health. When the elderly are confined to small rooms with minimal access to beautiful surroundings, it could be detrimental to their well-being. At Livewell, our residents have access to the entire estate, including communal sensory gardens, dining and living areas.

Along with our personalised dementia care, Livewell provides a private frail care facility. Our residents may benefit from professional health care, healthy meals, and elegant surroundings as part of an all-inclusive package while being close to a hospital. Our frail care facility is a specialised ward that ensures loved ones have access to nursing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from caregivers who have been adequately trained to assist those in need.
