The highly skilled and experienced nurses and carers on The Fairhaven Suite are up to date with the latest in symptom control and pain relief in end of life care (also known as palliative care).
The 24 hour nursing care means they quickly respond to any changes. The team are in close contact with the local GP surgery and rapid response team to gain further expertise when required.
Staff spend time to find out each person’s wishes for their final days and staff work closely with the family at this time to ensure wishes are carried out.
An important part of the nurses and carers role is the support and care they give to family and friends; their understanding and experience can be of great comfort and help. The team also have links with a professional counsellor.
There are nine fully accessible suites with ensuite wet rooms. The rooms are spacious, light and airy and can be reconfigured to suit the needs of each person and their families (as well as having plenty space for appropriate equipment). Each has the benefit of a high-tech bed which offers maximum comfort and flexibility.
The suites are all large enough to accommodate family overnight and St Faith’s can often provide other accommodation for guests if needed.
The Fairhaven Suite also includes two lounges and kitchens for visitors to use. They have been created to give families and friends independence and privacy which can be particularly valued at this time. The kitchen facilities are in addition to complimentary food and refreshments available from the St Faith’s catering team.
All the suites have Wifi and a Smart tv
Our activities team organise one to one support to enable people to continue to enjoy interests or hobbies (and are experienced in adapting them to an appropriate level). Staff also facilitate trips out and pets can also visit!
As a charity we are able to offer very competitive rates. Please get in touch with Teresa who will be able to talk to you further about the fee levels. We have never had to ask anyone to leave due to their personal financial circumstances.
My mother was a resident of St Faith’s Fairhaven suite for 6 weeks. I cannot recommend this place enough. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They looked after Mum beautifully and us too. The Fairhaven suite is designed for end-of-life care and is quiet and calming. All the staff are professional, caring, kind and respectful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I don't think I will find the words to express just how grateful we are to you all for the incredible care you gave to my mum during her final weeks. Every single member of staff delivered her care with respect, professionalism, love and kindness. Teresa, you should be very proud of the staff and culture you have created here. The love and support you all gave to me and my family (and Mum's close friends) was amazing.
