Taking Care to know you, so everyone feels at home
A Warm Welcome to Meadowbank Care Home
You’ll find Meadowbank Care Home surrounded by beautiful countryside in the suburb of Waterside. We are on the edge of Derry/Londonderry city, and within easy reach of our region’s seaside resorts. We are also close to public transport, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.
Our Care team offers specialist care for residents with learning disabilities, some of whom also have sensory deficits or physical disabilities. We also provide neurological care and rehabilitation where we support residents with complex physical disabilities or health needs caused by a range of neurological conditions. We’re very proud of the welcoming family atmosphere at Meadowbank and the way we always tailor our approach carefully to the needs of each individual.
We have a busy activities programme so our residents are never without something to do, including painting, outings, and therapy visits.
Every day we work to make our service even better.
Thanks to our pioneering digital technology, everyone is encouraged to record their suggestions for the kind of care they want using our very simple iPad system. Residents, families and visiting professionals such as GPs and social workers are all invited to offer their ideas to help us keep on raising our standards. Each day people are telling us what they like, or what they feel we could do better. All comments are received directly by our Home Manager who will take any necessary actions immediately. Rest assured, no care home provider is working harder to make every individual resident’s experience special.
Professional, practical and personal
Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training. As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day.
Stimulation for body & mind
Our dedicated Activities Leader gently encourages residents to carry on doing the things they enjoy. Another aspect of helping our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. If they had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new. The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
Mealtimes are a highlight of our day
We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dieticians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can eat in our pleasant dining rooms or, if they prefer, we’re pleased to serve them their meal in the privacy of their own rooms.
All the comforts of home
Our home provides interiors and facilities that are modern and welcoming. We encourage all residents to make their bedrooms feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures, mementoes and small items of furniture.
