AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF A&L CARE HOMES


With over 50 years of experience, we pride ourselves on offering a highly professional care service for the elderly, with a personal touch. We are pleased to accept Service Users for long term, short term for convalescence, respite and holiday stays. We also specialise in the provision of innovative dementia care.

When people have worked hard throughout their life and have been committed to helping others, we think they deserve extra cherishing. They need a home where individuality is emphasised, with staff who have time to give attention to small detail, and where they have the choice of enjoying the company of like-minded fellow Service Users:

PRIVACY:

This is important to all and should not be less important because one is in a residential care setting. Service Users are entitled to privacy, although the level of privacy will depend on the situation. It is the right of a Service User to be left alone and undisturbed whenever they wish.

DIGNITY:

It is important that we understand of a Service Users needs and treating them with respect. There are eight basic core values of dignity.

  • Choice and control
  • Communication
  • Eating and nutritional care
  • Pain management
  • Personal hygiene
  • Privacy
  • Social inclusion

At Mayflower we understand these values and work and train to ensure they are upheld.

INDEPENDENCE:

We understand we must allow Service User’s to take calculated risks, to make their own decisions and think and act for themselves. This is vitally important to ensure the Service User’s maintain their self-respect and dignity.

CHOICE:

Giving a Service User the opportunity to select for themselves from a range of alternative options. Service Users assessed needs, preferences, and choices are met at all times by staff who have the necessary skills and knowledge.

RIGHTS

Keeping all basic human rights available to the Service Users.

FULFILMENT:

Enabling the Service User to realise their own aims and helping them to achieve these goals in all aspects of daily living. A strength based approach is carried out at Mayflower and we understand this is essential in protecting the Service User’s independence, resilience, and their ability to make choices.
