Services offered at Invereck House

  • Specialist dementia care homes

Accommodation
Our house has 28 ensuite rooms, a TV lounge, a large lounge and a quiet room. 

Outside we have extensive gardens and mature trees, which offer daily opportunities to observe the antics of red squirrels, deer and a variety of birdlife. There is also an enclosed sensory garden where residents can enjoy a tranquil setting with friends and family. 

In better weather, the gardens are used for a number of activities, which can include barbecues or an old fashioned leisurely afternoon tea with cucumber sandwiches.

Although we have two communal dining areas, residents can eat in their own rooms, or have the

use of the main dining room when family are visiting or for a family celebration or get-together.

Individual Care Plan
When a new resident joins us at Invereck, we allocate a Key Worker who will consult with all involved parties to compile an Individual Care Plan. This will take into account your needs, likes, dislikes and aspirations, so we can offer you the best possible care. It ensures that you stay in control of your life and your environment.

Involvement
Here at Invereck we firmly believe in involving, engaging and consulting our residents, their families and friends. To facilitate this we have regular Residents Meetings, a Relative/Carer Committee, Staff Focus Group, Residents Committee and a Newsletter. 

Family Involvement
We want to support family members and friends to stay involved in your care when you are living at Invereck. We don’t want to interfere with any arrangements you may already have for going shopping, keeping appointments, or dealing with personal finances. This help is available from us if you need it, but we recognise that continuing support from the people closest to you will contribute most to your sense of wellbeing. 

The advice of your family and friends is invaluable to us in caring for you, and we truly welcome them on your behalf, whenever they wish to visit.

Community Involvement
Sometimes it can be difficult to visit old friends who no longer get out, or to use public transport to get to community interests. It isn’t that you’ve lost interest, but perhaps the effort involved sometimes seem too much. We can usually help, with prior arrangement, by providing an escort and transport in a modern minibus modified for access and ease of use, which makes most things possible again.
