Residential care in Romsey, Hampshire

Prior to moving into residential care, many elderly people live at home with the support of their family or social home care services. In an ideal world, the decision to switch to residential care is made before it is forced upon the individual by circumstance, such as a fall, illness or hospitalisation. However, life doesn’t always work that way, and the unexpected can occur. When it does, short stay or longer-term residential care is on hand to support the individual and provide all the specialist care they need.

The biggest benefit is peace of mind. For the individual themselves, it’s the reassurance of knowing that highly trained and qualified nursing care is on hand whenever they need it – night and day. For their loved ones and family, it often means the temporary or longer-term alleviation of caring responsibilities, which can be emotionally, mentally and physically draining.

What is residential care? 

At its best, a residential care home is “home away from home”. In the words of Bianca Gurca, Registered Manager at Romsey’s Cedar Lawn Nursing Home, it’s “…an opportunity to let go of some of the stresses of getting older and let caring, compassionate nursing staff take the strain – giving you the care and attention you deserve, 24/7.

With 28 bedrooms, most with en-suites and four with access to enhanced accessibility bathrooms, Hampshire's Cedar Lawn has long enjoyed an excellent local reputation for outstanding nursing, respite and palliative care.
