All homes have iPads that can be used to support a regular video call and we also use RelsApp so you can keep up to date with everything happening in the home.
Hallmark Care Homes operate the purpose-built Kew House Care Home, in Wimbledon, just 8.9 miles from central London, known as one of the most prestigious care homes in London. Recently refurbished, the care home offers high-quality residential, nursing, dementia and short stays to residents in south west London.
Our London care home features an award-winning design as well as a wide range of activities and facilities, including a therapy room, café, terrace, cinema and courtyard gardens. Residents are encouraged to continue with their everyday routines, whether that means collecting their own morning paper, visiting the shops or taking a walk in the park, ensuring their lives are still their own during their stay with us in our care home in London. Meanwhile, our focus on Relationship Centred Care at our care homes in London ensures residents are involved in planning their care, while receiving the attention and respect they deserve.
Our residential care homes have a strong reputation for providing high quality care and for building meaningful relationships with residents. When new residents arrive, they are given the opportunity to fill out an “About Me” book, which will help our team of carers to better understand their likes and dislikes. This allows us to treat each resident as an individual and recommend activities that they might enjoy.
When living in residential care, residents will have access to high quality facilities in their rooms, with an easily accessible en-suite in every room, as well as the chance to bring their own furniture should they want to feel more connected to home.
Furthermore, our Lifestyles Team arranges numerous activities for residents to enjoy, with arts and crafts, quizzes, baking sessions and more being held on a regular basis.
Hallmark Care Homes is a member of the Dementia Action Alliance, is signed up to the national Dementia Pledge and is actively involved in research projects to improve standards of dementia care. This helps us to truly understand the types of care that people living with dementia benefit from, meaning that we can help all residents to feel comfortable and safe.
Our care homes offer older people living with dementia a comfortable environment to live in, where they can retain a sense of independence and receive a range of care options that are based around their needs. Our philosophy of relationship-centred care means we train our team with additional communication and observational skills to support the people we care for.
Finally, we are proud to be part of the Housing and Dementia Research Consortium to support research on what practices best support people living with dementia in an effort to positively influence policy and practice for dementia care in the UK.
