About Rosewood Care Home

Rosewood care home cares for the elderly who are living with a dementia. We pride ourselves on ensuring that your relative is able to participate in the running of the home, and are promoted to continue to live a "normal" life, where they will go to bed feeling a sense of achievement and self worth.

The home is conveniently situated close to Bluewater Shopping Centre and is served well by local bus routes. The mainline train station, Greenhithe, is close by and there is also easy access by car via the A2. There are a selection of shops nearby at Swanscombe and Stone, including a Post Office and newsagents.

Regular programmes of outings are arranged and in-house parties and entertainment provide an interesting and varied social life. We also employ an activities co-ordinator who arranges a variety of activities to suit both groups and individuals, which encourages participation. We use reminiscence for a strong basis for our activities.

Care

Privacy and dignity are extremely important to our residents. Our staff are respectful of this, and realise how important this is to the people entrusted into our care. Our team of staff are dedicated to providing a high quality of care and are trained to a very high standard. We believe strongly that life history is an invaluable tool that we can use to tailor the care to your loved ones needs. Here at Rosewood care home we work closely and regularly with local doctors, district nurses, chiropodists, dentist, optician and many other professional agencies to ensure the right care is given to the resident and adopts a person centred approach to care.  

Facilities

The home is decorated to a high standard and offers a "homely feel", providing comfort and security. We have a total of forty two bedrooms; most have en-suite facilities and all rooms are equipped with nurse call points and wash hand basins. The majority of the rooms are single but there are three double bedded rooms which are available to offer shared accommodation if this is needed. We encourage family's to bring in personal possessions so that their loved ones room resembles "home".

On the ground floor there is a large dining room area which has an open aspect to the day room.The dining room leads directly onto a patio and flower garden where residents, family and friends can take refreshments and enjoy quality time together in the sunshine.

The home has a lift to assist residents up and down from their bedrooms. Each room is fitted with a call bell system, which can be used to seek assistance and all our bedrooms are fitted with a suite of furniture. Ther home also has a hairdressing room where our residence can have their hair cut by our visiting hairdresser.

Food & Drink

We offer home cooked food and ensure that there is always a good choice for our residents to choose from. Special dietary needs are catered for and residents who need additional support with eating and drinking are assisted in a dignified and discreet manner. Our menus are constantly monitored by the Manager and a nutritionist is involved in any changes that may be necessary.

We offer all our clients 3 meals a day, which are breakfast, lunch and high tea, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day. We offer a variety of dishes to choose from our menu each day for each meal. Rosewood has a seasonal menu, which works on a 4 weekly cycle. All our food is freshly brought in, homemade and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important. Our menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes.

My mother has been a resident at Rosewood Residential Care Home since February 2015. I live in the USA and have no siblings. Rosewood gives me peace of mind that my mother is treated with kindness and dignity. She tells me the meals are always good and staff are kind and good to her. Rosewood have an active social calendar with singers, entertainers and animal events that the residents love. From time to time they take trips to the seaside or local venues and games at the home that stimulate the mind and brain. I call frequently and can always speak with my mother, staff are always courteous. Managers keep me abreast of situations that arise via email. My cousin visits when she can and always gives me a good report, such as always finding staff interacting with residents. My cousin reports that my mother is dressed nicely with hair fixed nice and clean. My cousin always tells me not to worry about my mum as she is being well cared for.

I like the staff at Rosewood as they are welcoming and positive. I personally find it hard having my mother in care but believe that Rosewood provides a positive experience. My Mum's days are purposeful and her care is very good. The activities coordinators try hard to engage as many residents as possible.

Management and staff are efficient, good communications and friendly. Residents are kept clean and tidy. Food provided is nutritious and menus are varied to suit individuals. My mother's room is always clean and well kept. Entertainment is varied and enjoyed by my mother and I believe others. Keeping the dining room floor cleaned after meals could be impressed upon. The residential home meets all of the key activities and I would certainly recommend to others.
