Accommodation

Southfields House is registered to accommodate up to sixteen people. There are seven rooms on the ground floor, and a further nine rooms on the first floor. Twelve of these rooms have en suite toilets and all have hand basin vanity units. Two of the rooms are large enough to be suitable for double occupancy if desired. The Home is centrally heated, with double glazed windows in most areas.

All rooms have an emergency call system, TV aerial points for the use either of the occupant's own TV, or one which we provide. We have a Stannah Stairlift which enables members of staff to transfer those with difficulty in negotiating stairs. In addition, TVs are available in the lounges with DVD, VCR and Freesat reception for public viewing of broadcast or recorded material.

There is a communal lounge, a dining room and a combined room on the the first floor, which has a user friendly computer available for resident's use. Large print books are available, as a service from the Central Library. There is also a room for hairdressing and other treatment on the first floor.

Our bathrooms, two with chair hoists, allow easy healthcare for our residents and personal privacy for those less dependent upon assistance. A pay phone is available for all to make and receive calls and in the event of an emergency, incoming calls can be received anywhere on the premises through the portable internal system. Alternatively, we will arrange for those who prefer to have a telephone installed in their rooms at their own cost. Residents who have friends or family overseas can benefit from the reduced cost of communications by fax, e-mail or links such as Skype through the broadband internet connection.
