Caring Hands (Wiltshire) provides a Residential care home without nursing, for individuals of 60 years and above, however, in exceptional cases Caring Hands (Wiltshire) will consider accommodating a client below this age range. This will only be the case if Caring Hands (Wiltshire) is able to meet the needs of the Individual.

We offer a maximum of 6 service users. We have 5 single rooms all with en-suite facilities, and a double respite room with en-suite. We offer a pre-bookable Respite Care Service.

Professional support, with personal care when necessary is included in the service. Our service band accommodates older people, sensory impairment, physical disabilities and dementia. We also offer a carers relief sitting service, to accommodate specific needs.

The regulated activities are registered for accommodation for individuals who require nursing or personal care. These activities have been registered with the Care Quality Commission.

Clients requiring pre-bookable respite care, will be invited to attend an appointment at the Farm, to view the en-suite respite facilities and a holistic assessment to be undertaken. After viewing the facilities, completion of the assessment and when all parties are in agreement with a respite care stay, a booking form will be completed.

An assessment will take place within a client’s home as long as a client lives within a 30 mile radius of Battle Lake Farm. Clients who wish to spend time at Battle Lake Farm who live outside of this area can be sent an assessment form to complete themselves. From the assessment and information that is shared, a client’s individual needs will be identified and their preferences can be understood. Risks for an individual can be highlighted. Risks will be managed accordingly, enabling each client to experience a safe and positive stay at Battle Lake Farm.

If the assessment is completed by another, to access the Respite service, then we will expect that person to bring the individual to the Farm. Caring Hands (Wiltshire) will have the right in any circumstance to decline a visit, if it is felt that a client’s needs could not be met at the time of arrival. The escort will have full responsibility to take the individual away from the premises and the deposit will be with- held.

Battle Lake Farm will offer a home from home environment, promoting good health and emotional well- being.
