Wisteria House, Woolwell
We bought this empty former care home early in 2020 and have spent the last 18 months totally refurbising and equiping it to become the latest addition to our Wisteria group. We opened on February 14th 2022. Our website is a little sparse at the moment, when we open we will be posting lots of pictures and stories about the things that happen at the home. We will be carrying on the same ethos as our other homes in Plymstock and Stoke where we have amazing standards of care, to get a feel for our central focus on quality of life take a look at our face book page Wisteria House Dementia Care Plymstock. Like our sister homes we will be aiming for a CQC 'outstanding' classification on our first inspection.
Wisteria House, Woolwell is designed for 33 elderly people living with a Dementia on a residential basis, offering 24 hour specialist care in a comfortable and familiar environment by a experienced staff team, whose central focus is to offer quality of life. The management team whose main aim is ensuring through regular highly reflective workshops that the staff team feel proud, worthy and happy whilst caring for the people living at Wisteria House.
"My aim for the people living at Wisteria House is to firstly reduce stress and anxiety, by creating a world that is calming, friendly, affectionate and familiar. Promoting choice and control over one's life that adds meaning and purpose. Introducing activities, stimulation and independence to a level where individual's can experience living postively with Dementia". Louise Collins, Owner.
At Wisteria House each person is treated as an equal, free to make their own choices in life, free to get up and go to bed when they like, wear what they like, eat where they like, join in with activities if they want to. We have no set visiting times (depending on current Covid 19 restrictions) and welcome and support families and friends. The staff team are very generous with affection and we like to have lot of fun moments, to include banter and laughter.
