Initially, unless on Full Care, residents are only expected to have lunch in the Restaurant every day – needless to say if this isn’t taken up it can be substituted for an evening meal. For other meals, these can either be served in the Restaurant or in their own flat.

Some residents in our care home prefer Full Care which includes all services and culminates in nursing care as required.

Moving in

We understand how difficult it can be to make the decision to move into residential care and that it can take some time to settle in.

Malin Court is unique, in that it enables a new resident to condense their previous home into a flat and therefore they are able to take more furniture, pictures and personal belongings with them than if they were moving only into one room. In fact we always suggest that you bring too much furniture with you and then decide what to keep when you have been in for a few days. All the staff are very welcoming and will do everything in their power to make you feel a home.

A key staff member will prepare a care plan with you and will always be there to support you and to inform others of your needs. They will introduce you to other residents and let you know of all services and activities that are available. At Malin Court Residential Care home you can be assured that your religious and social beliefs will be respected and ministers and priests are welcome at any time.

If you are not certain that you have made the right move, every help will be given to guide you and your relatives to come to the right decision, perhaps including a Care Break to give you a short stay with us before making a final decision. Needless to say should at any time you wish to leave we fully understand and will help in any way we can. We hope you will be happy at Malin Court residential care home and would ask that you inform us of anything that you feel needs discussed or is worrying you.

Depending on the type of pet, we are happy for them to stay at Malin Court too.

No matter how good we think we are, we know that we must always be aware of the need to improve and training for all staff is ongoing all the time.

To move to a care home is a very big decision to make and can be very traumatic. Obviously, it can be perceived as a last move, and although done for the right reasons it can still be very frightening. It is our job to make this move as easy as possible. Our commitment is to care and to provide the best services that Malin Court Care Home can give its family of residents.
