We involve the resident, family and specialist teams when it comes to creating an appropriate care plan with the resident’s comfort at the very forefront of all decisions made. This is a very emotional time and our team are honoured to be a part of it and to that end, absolutely every measure is taken to ensure the resident remains comfortable and with as few interruptions as possible. The resident will undergo a full care plan review and each area of care reassessed. An End Of Life care plan will then be produced and reviewed on a regular basis.
Our goal is to ensure that residents at end of life are able to experience a peaceful environment with as little medical intervention as possible with ongoing input from their GP and the team at Rowcroft Hospice. We also have an in-house Soul Midwife – a specialist Registered Nurse – who will be able to offer a more holisitic 1-2-1 approach to nursing care. Systems will be implemented to ensure that pain management is in place and all staff have been trained to the highest level to promote comfort and dignity during this time.
Mount Olivet Nursing Home is a large residential property with commanding views across the bay which has been converted into a care home. Each room has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished by the manager and adjustments can be made to suit the desires of any new resident.
Most rooms are en-suite and due to its elevated position above Paignton, many rooms offer either garden or sea views or views across Torbay.
We encourage residents and families to personalise bedrooms as much as they would like to. This could be by making small additions like hanging photos or preferred pictures on the wall, to bringing in pieces of furniture and soft furnishings. Many residents will find it easier to settle if they surrounded by familiar items and smells. Please speak to the manager about any changes or additions you would like to make to the room and we will endeavour to accommodate this.
Upon enquiry, you will be signposted to our Key Information and Important Additional Information on our website. This can also be provided in printed and large print formats.
Our Manager or one of our Trained Nurses will take some preliminary information over the phone and invite you in to see the home and rooms that we may have available. At this meeting, more information will be taken and you will be given the chance to ask any questions you may have.
The decision on which care home to choose should not be taken lightly and so you will be advised to take your time and come back to us with any questions you may have.
If you decide that you or your relative would like to move into Mount Olivet Home, our Manager or one of our Registered Nurses will come out to do a Pre-Admission Assessment.
If all goes well and the move goes ahead, privately funded residents will be issued with two copies of our Terms and Conditions and any billing documents. Full Social Services funded residents will enter into an agreement with the Local Authority. Part funded residents will enter into agreements with the funding authority/ies and a private agreement directly with the home for any top-ups fees or hotel costs.
Upon arrival at Mount Olivet, an Assessment on Admission will be completed and care plans will be finalised. We encourage Family and Next of Kin to be as involved as they wish during this period and throughout the ongoing care.
