The importance of a Personalised Environment

At Atkinsons Care Home, Sandhurst, we pride ourselves on being a ‘home from home’. One of the way’s we do these is by personalising the residents surrounding.

A personalised environment is very important in a Care home. Part of making sure residents have the dignity and respect they deserve is freedom of choice. The freedom to decorate their space the same way they would if they were completely independent.

This can be represented through people’s own choices on how they may like their own surroundings to be. These personal choices are offered in many ways throughout the home, from the preferred door colour and a collage of memories to a vast array of meal choices.

Other areas we ensure are personalised :

  1. Care Plans:
    • By tailoring care plans to individuals needs, we are respecting their right to care choices and upholding their human rights.
  2. Activities & Crafts:
    • These are essential for keeping an active mind. We are committed to aiding the continuation of hobbies as well as taking up new ones.
  3. Celebrations:
    • Birthday’s & other celebrations are important occasions to make a person feel special. Our chefs will design and prepare a personalised cake, and all care staff will make our resident’s day extra special.
