Caring for you

In order to provide you with the highest standard of care we regularly assess your caring needs, and tailor a Care Plan to your own individual requirements.

We consult with you at every stage of the Care Plan, and we will adapt our Care Plan to suit your changing needs.

Pricing Strategy
Cost of Care is carefully measured by Core - Care Time and is assest monthly to individual needs.

Privacy & Dignity
The person-centred care will support your rights to dignity and respect and will recognise your right to privacy in your own room; and as is customary Staff will knock and seek permission before entering.

Any information of a personal nature passed on to Staff will be confidential and treated as such.

The gifting of money to Staff is forbidden.

Our Aims and Objectives
It is our aim to provide you with the very highest standard of care, understanding of your needs and security to enable you to live life with dignity, respect and, wherever possible, the greatest degree of independence in the warm atmosphere of our Home.

We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and are registered for 27 residents of either sex, aged 65 and over (unless there are exceptional circumstances), including dementia sufferers.

"My recall to Poltair came as a total bolt out of the blue. I did not give me a chance to say good bye and more importantly thank you to all at Chypons for making my stay so pleasant. I wish to say thank you to all the care staff, support and the catering staff for the very good, well presented food."

April 2014

"I wanted to write to express my thanks to you all for looking after my Dad Bill. The care he received was exemplary and I know that all the staff at Chypons looked after him very well and made his stay very happy.

"Dear Geoffrey,
I would be very grateful if you could extend my sincere gratitude to all staff for the care and attention that always gave my mother. She always felt safe, warm and secure at Chypons and spoke often of the kindness extended to her by everyone.
