The Woodlands Philosophy

The Woodlands philosophy of care is to offer the highest standards of holistic care to each resident based on an initial assessment and a regularly updated plan of person centered care; to encourage independence and individuality whilst maintaining privacy and dignity. Individualised care is delivered within a secure, relaxed, homely and conducive environment, where a resident’s physical and psychological care, wellbeing and comfort are of prime importance to both staff and management.
We liaise closely with family and friends, encouraging open two way communication at all times so as to ensure good relationships.
