All rooms, both private and shared, have individual ensuite facilities. Each bedroom ensuite, bathroom and dayroom is fitted with a nurse call system which enables any resident to summon help from the staff at all times. All bedrooms are fully furnished. Bed linen and towels are provided. Residents are welcome to bring their own items such as photographs and ornaments.
Each room is fitted with a lockup area where residents can keep their personal possessions safe and secure. We also have direct dial telephones in each of our rooms so that residents can keep in touch with friends and family, as well as televisions which can be found in our communal areas.
Residents can also enjoy our extensive gardens and landscaped patio areas which are accessible from every bedroom wing. Our patio areas are private and enclosed peaceful areas complete with tables, seating and a fountain.
Meal times are a relaxed part of the day, with lots of time for a chat and socialising. Fully recognizing the importance of good nutrition, our Chefs lead the team in planning menus and cooking up a wonderful array of fresh and tasty meals daily, in consultation with our dieticians. Our menus are flexible, ensuring there is plenty of variety. Our lunch and dinner menus feature all the favourites, together with some delicious surprises.
Our chefs are trained to present to suit the residence without compromising the taste or appearance of the food. The catering team in Ratkeevan emphasise on the preparation of nutritionally rich food without reliance on nutritional supplements.
The lovely smell of freshly baked scones and breads gets each day off to a good start and while we encourage all residents to come to the dining rooms for meals, we can also arrange to serve meals to bedrooms. Our kitchens are state of the art and meet the full HACCP Quality Assurance Standard.
A fully equipped treatment room is available, where residents can avail of special treatments such as chiropody, reflexology and physiotherapy. A fully equipped hair salon is also available in-house with a qualified hairdresser who visits once a week.
Appointments can be easily arranged by staff members and payment is directly made by the resident to the hairdresser. Centralised Wifi is also available throughout our nursing home.
