By Kevin Burke, Director of Care Homes and Dementia Services

At Guild Care, our number one priority is to ensure that everyone who joins us feels like they’ve found their forever home. 
Our forever home approach is more than just a saying, though - it's our way of providing residents with a real sense of comfort, belonging and love. This is so important for the well-being of the people who live with us, helping to alleviate the mix of emotions that often come with moving into full time care. 

By embracing this approach, our carers gain a deeper understanding of each resident's unique personality, hobbies and needs, which allows us to deliver more personalised care. 

For us, a forever home isn't just about providing a place to live - it's about creating a nurturing and supportive environment where residents can live well and enjoy life. 

Each of our three care homes offer something a little different. Here’s what makes them so special.

Dedicated dementia care at Haviland House

A dementia diagnosis can be life-changing for both the individual and their loved ones. It’s completely natural to feel nervous or uncertain, but we’re here to make the transition as easy as possible, when you need more help.

Haviland House is our dedicated dementia care home. It features five households, each tailored to care for those living with a specific stage of dementia. This flexibility enables our team to really get to know everyone who lives with us, helping us to offer the level of care each person needs - when they need it.

As Kerri Sparrowe, our dedicated care needs co-ordinator and dementia lead, explains: “At Guild Care, we really value the close bonds between residents and staff. There’s a real sense of connection between everyone here”.

A team that goes the extra mile at Linfield House

Nestled next to the charming Victoria Park, Linfield House blends residential living with 24-hour expert nursing and dementia care. 
We offer round-the-clock nursing care across all our homes. This provides peace of mind for everyone, creating a sense of stability for our residents and their loved ones.

As Dan Vadeanu, deputy manager and clinical lead at Linfield House, adds “Our team of carers are always quick to respond to any issues that our residents might be facing – physical or emotional.”

Luxurious living at Caer Gwent

Caer Gwent has been designed with a luxurious yet homely feel, creating a space that residents feel proud to call home. It’s always a hive of activity, thanks to its wide range of wellbeing activities.

For us, quality care also means keeping our resident’s minds and bodies active. Across our homes we offer activities that cater to our residents’ unique needs - from seated exercise classes to fun day trips, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

As Sammy Paynter, health and wellbeing co-ordinator at Caer Gwent, says: “The day trips are always a big hit. We always ask people what they’d like to do – whether it’s going for a group trip to the seafront for fish and chips, or popping out for a one-to-one shopping trip. They’re always a lot of fun, and loved ones are more than welcome to come along!”
