We also care for post-operative Orthopaedic patients.
Our personnel is dedicated to helping residents proactively, by checking for sudden changes in their health. Changes can be triggered by a fall, stroke changes in medicine, or minor infections – which can all result in frailty.
We assist the frail residents who have trouble walking and climbing stairs, getting up from their chairs, and getting in and out of bed.
We also assist residents with everyday rituals, such as the professional and safe administration of medication as well as encouragement with eating and drinking. Our main aim and priority is to ensure our residents are comfortable and happy, and feel at ‘home’.
We organise daily activities and fun events, both in and out of our facility (external excursions currently not allowed during the Covid pandemic). These help give our residents a better sense of independence and normality.
We make every effort possible to keep everyone warm, safe, secure and welcome – not just our residents, but also their family and friends who visit.
Our facilities are professionally designed to enhance the lives of residents. Located within retirement villages – they’re incorporated within beautiful gardens and patios. Visiting areas are expertly designed for relaxation and comfort.
At Heidelberg, we have two sections caring for our residents:
Our ground floor consists of wards for our very frail residents. In these wards there are care workers stationed to ensure there is 24 hours 7 days a week assistance.
