Relatives Information and Support Group
Each nursing home has a Relatives Information and Support Group. The group works in partnership with the nursing home to maintain and improve the quality of life for the residents in the home.
The group meets on a quarterly basis at an agreed date and time, depending on the wishes of the members; and facilitates a close working partnership with residents, relatives, management and staff of the nursing home.
The group aims to contribute to, and oversee, effective changes in the nursing home. We also aim to identify opportunities and encourage initiatives to enhance the environment of the home.
We occasionally host information and education seminars at these meetings on topics of interest. All relatives and friends are welcome to attend and we encourage participation as the meetings are a positive and beneficial attribute for both relatives and residents of the nursing home.
