LifeCare Residences unveil the Albert Suites – a luxury care facility that sets a new standard in aged nursing care for London
Situated adjacent to Battersea Park, the 30 exclusive suites are designed to offer an enriched quality of life amidst a discreet and dignified provision of care, tailored to the unique and personal needs of each resident.
Drawing on 35 years’ experience as an internationally renowned provider of outstanding care, The Albert Suites is operated by LifeCare Residences, a company registered with the Care Quality Commission.
Residents enjoy professional, personalised care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in the privacy of their own suite. Each member of the kind and caring staff has been hired for their warmth, responsiveness and compassion that reflect LifeCare Residences’ values.
All carers offer a safe pair of hands, and are highly trained to manage a breadth of complex care needs and circumstances, ranging from rehabilitation, short-term convalescence and post-operative support, to long-term nursing or palliative care.
Founded on a commitment to deliver responsive and effective care, each new resident at the Albert Suites receives an in-depth assessment prior to admission, which is reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis. Overseen by a registered nurse, each individualised care plan is administered by the care team, who work to fulfil the personal preferences of residents and their families.
Supervised by a director and the head of care, each bespoke care plan takes into consideration a resident’s culture, religion and interests, as well as their health requirements.
Traditional nursing care can be complemented by a range of healthcare professionals from physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists to dentists, opticians and audiologists. Holistic therapies such as aromatherapy, acupuncture, massage and reflexology can also be arranged.
Suites have a calm and welcoming atmosphere, and residents can choose their preferred size of suite to suit their individual needs. Featuring high quality furnishings and fittings, including a kitchenette and en-suite bathroom, along with top-of-the-range medical equipment, each suite ensures optimum comfort and affords a sense of independence and privacy.
Committed to delivering authentic choice, the Albert Suites offers a host of hotel-inspired facilities, from 24-hour room service to a chef-led menu that provides restaurant-plated meals, rich in nutritional value, to a café that offers barista coffee and refreshments each day.All are equipped with a flat screen television, Sky subscription and Wifi access. Residents can, if they desire, personalise their suite with their own furnishings.
The onsite executive chef works closely with the nursing team to ensure that each resident’s dietary requirements are met. Residents receive ‘silver service’ delivery of medications, banishing the traditional hospital trolley.
A hydro pool and specialist gym are available to rehabilitation residents, while personalised physiotherapy programmes can help residents to rebuild strength, aiding recovery and wellbeing.
A full-time lifestyle coordinator is on hand to devise a calendar of activities that meet the needs and reflect the interests of residents. An accessible minibus offers regular outings across London and also to tranquil countryside retreats. Residents can also enjoy the close proximity of Battersea Park for outings with families and friends.
