Treated in a dignified way: The dignity in care which is needed to meet individual needs is recognised within Sherwood's Nursing Home. The key to make sure these needs are met it 'The Governments ten dignity challenges'. This ensures that our staff and residents understand what service needs to be provided to meet the requirements of dignity in care.

All clients have the choice of their: clothing, meals, whether they practise their religion, activities, furniture and pictures in their room. Staffs understand whether they feel you are making the right choice or not that they should not get involved and that their job is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and to achieve this goal we feel we need to work together. We believe that each client within the care home is unique and should be treated as an individual. We want not only to achieve the comfort of you in the home but also we want you to feel like this is you're home. I take a lot of pride in running the nursing home and if none of the above is being followed action will be taken. Finally, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this leaflet and I hope to see you or you're relatives as prospectors soon so you can see the caring home first hand and become part of the loving environment we provide. ?? ?? ?? ??
