MEDICAL NEEDS

ACTIVITIES OTHER SERVICES

Residents who come to live at Highcliffe are elderly people over the age of sixty five with a wide range of needs and conditions.

We do not cater for persons whose main care problem is dementia but can meet the needs of those with memory loss and/or slight confusion.

The home will endeavour to access all medical services required by residents through the NHS provision. Where a resident is assessed as requiring medical attention, the home will ensure that they are seen by a General Practitioner and where necessary admitted to hospital.


Doctors

If you are a local resident of Chorley, it is our policy to retain the local doctor you have always seen, if you wish to do so. If you have lived outside the area, or wish to change doctor, the home will endeavour to register you with a doctor through the General Practitioner Committee, Preston. Highcliffe has well established links with the GP's surgery in Whittle-le-woods.


District Nursing Service

It has long been the practice at Highcliffe to enlist the help and support of the district nurses to deal with any nursing problems that may arise. The district nurses usually work in conjunction with the doctors.


Optician

If your optician is local to Chorley you may choose to remain with them. For any resident wanting to change, Visioncall visits the home on a regular basis to provide a free examination, fitting and repair service.


Occupational Therapist

Visits by the occupational therapist can be provided if the GP requests and arranges it.

Dentist

When coming to Highcliffe you will be asked which dentist you are presently registered with and whether you wish to continue using the same, or if you wish to change.. The home will endeavour to register you with another dentist should you so wish.


Podiatrist (Chiropodist)

If you prefer you will be escorted to the local health centre for treatment by the NHS podiatrist approximately every three months. Alternatively if you choose to use a private podiatrist there will be an additional charge per visit. (Please note these charges are subject to change)


Physiotherapist

Visits by the physiotherapist can be arranged  through the GP. Should you wish to have a private physiotherapist each individual will be responsible for the charges incurred.
