We’re doing everything we can to stay in touch with residents’ family and loved ones, updating them on the current situation and any changes to visiting through online updates, remotely organised meetings and letters.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

Lower Johnshill offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely. All this combines to offer a welcome sense of community, which complements the professionalism of MHA’s highly trained staff.

Lower Johnshill has the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

All rooms are en suite and comfortably furnished and we have free wifi throughout the home.

A TV can be provided for your room on request and residents have access to a computer.  We have a call system which can be operated by a hand control or a pendant depending on personal preference. We also have a choice of a profile bed or a divan in our rooms, ensuring we can meet individual choices or care needs.

You can bring your own furniture to furnish your room, such as a favourite armchair or their own bed. Walls can be personalised with their own pictures, shelving and ornaments.

Nursing care

Lower Johnshill provides specialist nursing care for those with long-term illness or disability where more complex medical support is required.

Our qualified nursing team are available on site 24 hours a day to provide medical and other forms of specialised support. Respecting older people and recognising each resident as a unique individual, our nurses provide not just high quality nursing skills, but truly person-centred care.

We seek to meet physical needs and frailty as they advance with ongoing nursing care. Most of all we ensure that each resident is treated with the dignity and respect that we all deserve.

Dedicated dementia care

We are one of the pioneers of person-centred specialist dementia care in the UK. Our first specialist dementia care home opened in 1989 and since then we have continued to develop our approach in our care homes and retirement apartments across the UK.

Our specialist dementia care recognises each person as a unique individual. At Lower Johnshill, our caring, professional and fully-trained carers, provide the highest quality care to preserve dignity, treat people with respect and promote independence.

Everyone with dementia is different. That's why a person-centred approach is key: at Lower Johnshill, we take time to get to know each individual’s history, personality and preferences, and find ways to make every day fulfilling.

Our dementia area at Lower Johnshill is designed and decorated to be safe for you, and also as familiar, reassuring and as easy to navigate as possible. The dementia floor is secured by keypad coding to ensure that you are safe and secure at all times.

We provide ‘show and tell’ at mealtimes where you are visually presented with the two meals on the menu so you can select which one you would like. Other options are also available if you would like an alternative.

We have a dementia secure garden with sensory plants and ornaments. The dementia floor is at ground level and you can visit the garden at any time.

Residential care

Finding a place that you can call "home" is a question of getting the right balance.

Lower Johnshill’s residential care provides 24 hour support to help residents maintain independence –giving you peace of mind and a place to make new friends and explore new interests.

In many ways it is like living in a hotel, where you don’t need to worry about laundry, changing the bed or cleaning your room. We will use the district nurse and GPs to provide any medical care. Our caring staff help with everyday activities like bathing and dressing and support at meal times.

At the same time, there is no reason why you can’t maintain links with the local community, or develop new friendships and relationships. Care staff will help you do that, while also working hard to create a home that is full of opportunities.

In the main living areas of the home you will find lounges where you can join in one of the many activities with others or to sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

Food and drink

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.

 

Our commitment to your wellbeing

Our highly-trained, dedicated members of staff will always be on hand to provide your care and support in the way that best suits you, in the comfort of your own room with en suite facilities.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.

Added extras including exercise classes help you to keep fit and active.
