Allison House is a residential nursing service provided in a homely environment. As with Kirkdale, it has high staffing levels to ensure that people’s needs are met quickly and appropriately. People are treated as individuals and are supported by a team of skilled and dedicated nurses and care support staff.
This too is a purpose-built service, designed to positively support those affected by Alzheimers and associated dementias with a lay-out which supports an individual’s ability to move about safely and independently, with many rest and relaxation areas.
People have their own individual bedrooms which can be personalised, as well as a range of comfortable lounges to relax in, meet with visitors, chat or enjoy activities. Allison House also has a large enclosed garden, which can be accessed from inside the building and which is used extensively by residents. This is a safe space to enjoy some peace and quiet, gardening or a walk in the fresh air. Over the past three years a number of residents have taken to growing their own vegetables with support from volunteers, some of which have been used in home's kitchen.
A pathway is provided within Allison House, which means a person’s needs can continue to be met even if their condition deteriorates over time. Aspen provides an environment best suited to those who are less dependent whilst Willow offers a greater level of support for people who require additional care.
