THE NURSING HOME PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING SERVICES BY BRINGING IN OUTSIDE PROFESSIONALS; THE SERVICE USER HOWEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING FOR THESE SERVICES PRIVATELY;
Hairdresser– A hairdresser visits the home on a weekly basis and all clients may visit our Salon for a treatment.
Dentist– The dentist visits the home on a regular basis and as appropriate when required, prices vary depending on work to be carried out, but you will be informed of the cost prior to any work being done.
Chiropodist– The Chiropodist visits the nursing home on a monthly basis. If extensive work is required then the price will be discussed on an individual basis.
Optician– The Optician visits the nursing home on request – prices vary depending on requirements.
Newspapers– Newspapers can be ordered from the local newsagents and delivered to the home, if you require a paper please speak with the Manager who will place your order for you.
The home has an arrangement with Helston Medical Centre where one of their GP’s will visit the home routinely for a Doctor’s Round, where any concerns can be discussed and appropriate actions taken. All of our clients are welcome to register with this surgery – see the Nurse in Charge when you view the home.
Alternatively, the Patient Charter states that every person has a right to register with a GP of their choice and if your GP is willing to visit the home, then the home is happy for you to remain with your own GP.
