Zest Care Homes is a company that genuinely wants to provide a service that delivers a high standard of care for people who live in our homes. We know, that for many of our residents, living in a care home is often not a preference. Our own home is where we all want to be, whether in good or bad health and therefore it’s important that we acknowledge moving into a care home is very much a second choice. As a result, we try to create an environment that is as close to being homely as possible, but with the added benefit of companionship.
We want our residents to maintain their independence and freedoms whilst living in our care homes. Encouraging residents to participate in day to day decision making is important to us, whether that be making menu choices, participating in activity programmes, choosing their own room, recruiting staff for the home, attending church services, going on outings, being involved in redecoration plans etc. In all things, we seek to harness residents opinions and views, to ensure all of us at Zest are reminded that we are working in their home.
