Life at Copelands
Introduction to Life at Copelands
Life at Copelands is all about ensuring each resident feels cared for, comfortable and content in how they spend their time, either by themselves in their room or any of the shared spaces, interacting or socialising with other residents, or in their interactions with the staff team and volunteers.
Copelands is laid out in six wings of ten en suite bedrooms each, inspired by a ‘household’ model of care.
Home Away From Home
In addition, each wing has a lounge, dining area and kitchen, together with a quiet room for relaxing or socialising.
‘The Hub’ is the first floor common room that is adaptable for a wide range of regular activities for the enjoyment of all residents.
Every Day is Spa Day
Sea Breeze Spa on the first floor will provide regular hair styling and pampering services to all residents.
The first floor also boasts The Sunshine Room, a room for Hobbies, Arts & Crafts, providing direct access to the rooftop patio.
This will host short services and acts of reflection on a regular basis & can also be used for personal prayer and reflection.
Pebbles provides a casual socialising area beside reception for residents to meet with each other, visitors or for special events.
Our garden has seating and paths to enjoy, while the landscaped grounds offer light exercise, gardening and socialising.
Residents can avail of a selection of books to borrow and national and regional newspapers are delivered regularly.
What happens when you first arrive?
When you arrive at Copelands you will be met by a Team Leader who will welcome you and your family and/or loved ones. We usually start with a cup of tea or coffee in Pebbles cafe so we can sit and relax to explain the plan for the day.
Once you have been shown your room, a member of the Care Team will come and support you through the rest of the admission process. At this stage, family or loved ones are welcome to come and have a meal with you in your room to help with the settling in process.
All Copelands staff will come and say hello so you can get to know them, and they you, and they will take time to show you around the building so you can get your bearings.
You will also be provided with a copy of the Resident’s Guide which explains the day to day running of Copelands and should answer any further questions you may have.
Dining & Food
A choice of menu is available, and the Chef/Cook
will discuss your likes and dislikes with you. Special
dietary needs will be catered for and residents are
involved in the planning of menus.
All meals will be served in the Dining Room, and tea and coffee are available between meal-times, either on request in your room, in the household lounges or in the communal café space.
Copelands’ dedicated worship and reflection space is on the first floor, and short services and acts of reflection will take place there on a regular basis. Everyone is welcome to attend these. It can also be used for personal prayer and reflection at other times.
Your own minister, pastoral visitor or other spiritual advisor is very welcome to visit you in Copelands and, if you would like, we would encourage you to attend your own place of worship where that is possible. If you wish, staff will liaise with your own, or local places of worship to see how this can be facilitated.
