The success of a specialist unit was celebrated today as the Mayor of Harrow visited a unique intermediate care centre at Care UK’s Woodland Hall, Stanmore.
Our Greenview unit played host to the Mayor Harrow Councillor Eric Silver and the Madam Mayoress who paid a visit to see our facilities and meet residents and staff.
Greenview which opened in November 2008 to provide intermediate care that can prevent older people having to leave their own homes permanently impressed the Mayor who said: ”The Mayoress and I were very impressed with the standard of care and friendliness at Woodland Hall Care Home and by all the people staying there who were happy and relaxed. The hard work and dedication that staff put in, and who treat everyone with dignity, was very apparent.”
Our Manager Kumaree Juggapah explained: “Often older people are taken into hospital with an infection or fracture which, after treatment, still leaves them with some rehabilitation needs that hospitals are not designed to provide.
“They are then faced with the prospect of going home when they still have those needs or going permanently into a care home when they are not ready to take that step.”
Greenview specialises in behavioural needs and caters for older people who have experienced mental health needs and who also need nursing care.
