Physiotherapist / P.T.A.
The physical health and well-being of our residents is a priority, which is why we have a team of physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants on hand to promote mobility and functional ability. Regular examination, evaluation and assessment ensures our residents can partake in exercise programs to improve their circulation and maintain muscle strength, co-ordination and balance, which helps prevent falls.
Occupational Therapist / Lifestyle
SwanCare’s team of Occupational Therapists work closely with the residents, adapting the environment and modifying tasks to make it easier for them to participate in events and activities. They assess the residents regularly to ensure their wheelchairs and any other pieces of mobility equipment are set up correctly. All these measures are aimed at maintaining and in many cases improving their independence. Occupational Therapists are supported by Lifestyle staff that develop a calendar of activities to meet the individual needs of our residents.
Hospitality & Hotel Services
Eating well plays a major role in maintaining good health, which is why SwanCare provides a range of tasty, nutritional meals for our residents, with plenty of variety and choice.
Similarly, cleanliness and hygiene is important when it comes to minimising the risk of disease. Our Hotel Services staff set very high standards and maintain the cleanliness not only of our facilities but also the individual rooms of our residents.
