Signature at Chorleywood is a Care Home that caters for Assisted Living, Dementia residents. The home is overseen by our General Manager and a team of Heads of Department who are all subject matter experts in their chosen field.

The home has 70 apartments that are dedicated to Assisted Living over 3 floors and a Dementia community that has 30 suites on the same floor. The number of Carers on duty will be determined by the residents’ individual needs, however we allocate a minimum ratio of 1 Carer to 5 residents in our Assisted Living environments and a ratio of 1 Carer to 3 residents in our Dementia communities.

Our typical residents will be above 65 yrs of age of both genders.  We will however, accept younger adults, under 65 years of age, if after assessment and working with the individual and their families we feel we can safely meet their needs.

Our objective is to enhance the quality of life and relieve the stresses experienced by seniors, some of whom may have care needs as a result of age, illness or disability. We aim to offer individualised services by involving the resident and their families.  Our service is flexible with an emphasis on mental, social and spiritual health.

Our Reminiscence Neighbourhood is designed specifically for people living with Dementia, or other forms of memory loss. Within this neighbourhood, our residents live in an environment centred on comfort and security to promote health and wellbeing, helping our residents feel safe and respected.

Our Reminiscence neighbourhood is designed so that resident suites are located next to living and dining areas, promoting easy navigation and social interaction with carefully chosen furniture, lighting, and colour scheme(s) to enhance residents’ independence and dignity.

The care that each resident requires and receives is recorded using person centred mobile care technology which assists us in allocating the appropriate level of staffing to each area of the building at the right time of day or night. Residents have reassurance that our call bell system is linked to our mobile care system to support prompt access to support from staff.

Resident care is overseen by Care Managers who also provide guidance to the care teams, ensuring that the service is fully compliant with the regulations.

In addition, we have a dedicated catering team who serve main meals in our restaurants and a housekeeping team who are responsible for the cleanliness of the home including resident apartments. A dedicated activities team are responsible for arranging in-house events and organising excursions using our own minibuses. Each home has a reception area which is operated twelve hours a day, ensuring that all visitors receive a warm welcome and are logged in and out of the home.

All Signature staff are trained to meet best practice standards for their respective roles including but not limited to; the Skills for Care recommended Care Certificate standards, and all new to social care employees are automatically offered the opportunity to complete their Level 2 Health & Social Care Qualification.
