Millcroft – independent senior living with care
When deciding what’s best for an older relative with care needs, it can seem like residential care homes are the only option.
However, Season’s one and two-bedroom apartments, including Millcroft in Oxfordshire, can provide high levels of care 24/7 whilst allowing residents to maintain their independence with their own front door and come and go as they please.
Independent living with care caters for people with low care needs by promoting well-being and an active lifestyle, as well as supportng housekeeping and socialisation, but can also support residents with much more complex needs several times a day through tailored packages of care.
Carers are visitors in residents’ apartments as invited guests, “we always remember we are working in their home, they are not living in our workplace” said Anna, a carer at Millcroft.
These comprehensive, personalised care plans provide the same level of care they would receive in a residential care home setting but with the benefit of residents maintaining their independence for as long as possible. At Millcroft, staff can provide a suitable package and be flexible to suit that person’s needs on a daily basis.
Nancy was the first resident to move into Millcroft in late summer and she’s enjoying the opportunities of this new and vibrant community.
Nancy had been struggling at home, but really did not relish the thought of a care home. She says: “Millcroft is the best of both worlds, I have my independent, spacious flat and my own front door, but I have a package of care to support me – which will change as my needs change, that’s really reassuring.”
Nancy was able to contribute to her care package so feels nothing has been imposed on her, she chooses when to get up or go to bed, when to eat, rest, shop, or go out to visit friends and family. She loves getting dressed up for lunch and having a nice meal and socialising with other residents.
Millcroft is a collection of beautifully designed homes in the glorious historical village of Wallingford, South Oxfordshire. Residents can select a purpose built apartment, which can be furnished and decorated as they like. Each apartment has a modern fitted kitchen, bathroom with walk-in shower.
These spacious apartments are complemented by stunning communal areas, a restaurant, bar, cinema, activities room, lounge, hair salon, spa bath, conservatory and landscaped gardens, with wifi throughout.
There is even a guest apartment with an en-suite bathroom which family and friends can book for a small fee.
Residents can dine with family and friends in the restaurant, meet for a drink in the bar and join in with a selection of events and activities throughout the week, as well as remaining part of the local community.
