Glen Heathers is situated in
the coastal town of Lee on the
Solent overlooking the Isle of
Wight, a detached building
located off the sea road in a
quiet cherry tree lined avenue.
Glen Heathers is a Registered Care Home with nursing that
specialises in caring for up to 53 service users. The home
also provides a palliative care service.
Based on our core value of dignity through respect, we
understand how important it is to remember that a person
requiring care is still a unique individual. We therefore
endeavour to ensure that we do everything we can to help
the service users retain their sense of identity and feelings
of self-worth, to be treated with respect and valued for
who they are.
Our approach to care is to recognise that service users
will have their own experiences of life, their own needs
and feelings, likes and dislikes. In our care planning we take
account of service users abilities, interests and preferences
and aim to respond flexibly and sensitively. We focus on
what the service user can do rather than what they cannot
do. Our primary goal is to rebuild the service users
self-esteem, self-confidence and the restoration of
personal dignity leading to an improved quality of life.
