Being the main carer for a loved one, though rewarding, can be mentally and physically exhausting. We always want to do our best for the ones we care for and in doing so we sometimes forget that from time to time we need our own space to recharge our batteries. Being a main carer requires a selfless nature as well as being available day and night. At Kepplegate we believe in looking after everybody, which includes you, the carer.
Our day care is also invaluable to those who live at home but struggle to maintain social connections meaning they become isolated and lonely. With frequent day care guests and our lovely residents, there is always a hive of activity and conversation to join in with. We even have a visiting hair dresser each week!
The team is always there, willing to help with all aspects of personal care as well as medication needs. We have an adapted wet room so if being able to enjoy a shower at home is a challenge for you we can help you have one on your day care visit. It may be that you just don’t have a suitable shower at home and you may not need assistance, you are still more than welcome to use our facilities on your visit.
We have a wheelchair accessible vehicle meaning we can offer transport in some instances however our vehicle, day care and respite availability varies so it is always best to call or pop in for a chat to enquire about using any of these services.

Keeping in Touch
It is important to us that everyone who lives with us is able to maintain their social connections. Our home is equipped with wi-fi throughout allowing us to change the future of communication.
We have an advanced telephone system in place which makes it possible for multiple people to be on the phone at any one time and our portable handsets ensure everyone has the ability to maintain their right to private phone calls.
Sometimes a familiar voice just isn't enough but distance makes it hard to visit. With our iPad and Skype, face to face communication is now achievable no matter where you are in the world. Technology is new and still quite daunting to some however we really believe in adapting to improve the lives of everyone.
Thanks to our super-fast broadband, skype and emails is made possible on your own devices! Just ask us for the wi-fi password when you move in or visit, it's completely free to use!
