Moving into residential care can be daunting. It's our job to make the transition as smooth as possible. It certainly doesn't mean that you have to leave your previous life behind. Residential care at Parris Lawn allows you to maintain as much independence as you want, safe in the knowledge that support with everyday activities and companionship is always at hand.
In partnership with residents and their loved ones, we tailor care and support to their personal needs, building a picture of not only their health and wellbeing but their emotional needs and the more simple things like knowing how many sugars they have in their tea. Put simply, staff are there when you need them and just around the corner when you don't.
Whether you live with Alzheimer's, vascular dementia, mixed dementia, Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's, or one of the many other forms of dementia, we work with residents, their loved ones and healthcare professionals to create a bespoke care plan to build a picture of their health, wellbeing and emotional needs.
Our care starts with our belief that a person should not just be identified by their illness. Instead, we take the time to learn about and celebrate the person – who they are, what they've done and where they've been. We also support relatives, helping them to understand dementia and how they can still play an active part in their loved ones life.
Parris Lawn is equipped to provide a comfortable and safe environment for people living with dementia, where they can live in the moment and take part in stimulating and meaningful activities which still remain familiar to them. This could be helping them to rekindle an old interest during reminiscence sessions or encouraging them to try new activities.
Parris Lawn provides a safe and comfortable environment for people in need of nursing care and therapeutic support, while personalised care plans ensure that 24-hour care is delivered with the respect and compassion that allows each resident to live their life to the fullest extent possible.
All of our bedrooms are suitably configured for residents who require nursing care such as those who have complex healthcare needs, mobility issues or need the supervision of a registered nurse. This might involve frequent medication regimes, wound care, constant assessment, monitoring and care planning.
We appreciate, for many of our nursing residents their conditions mean they rely solely on us to support them with things many people take for granted such as personal care, medication and at mealtimes. At the same time, our experience tells us where support might be needed and where independence is desired.

We also provide care for people who are nearing the end of their life but wish to remain in our caring, supportive and familiar environment. Our specialist palliative team provide active physical care, pain management, symptom relief to ease any suffering, and psychological, social, spiritual and practical support for individuals whose condition no longer responds to treatment. We also offer support to families during this difficult time.
Caring for somebody you love is incredibly rewarding but it can also be mentally and physical exhausting. For whatever reason, we all need a break now and then. Whether you need to convalesce after medical treatment or require support while you take a short break to recharge your batteries, as a carer you can relax in the knowledge that at Parris Lawn your loved one will receive specialist support in a warm, safe and friendly environment from experienced and qualified staff.
Our respite care plans are tailored to residents' individual needs and our staff are fully committed to making even the shortest of stays a positive experience. Anyone staying with us will be surrounded by all the comforts of home, provided with delicious home-cooked meals, enjoy the change of scenery and encouraged to take full advantage of the many social activities and the opportunity to meet new people, rekindle old interests and try new things.
