Types of care

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. If you’d like to know more about care at an Ultima home near you please click here.

Residential Care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they’re more frail. Residential care may also be suitable for those living with dementia.

Residential Care

Dementia Care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

Dementia Care

Intermediate Care

Also known as “step-up, step-down”, or rehabilitation care, intermediate care offers an alternative to a hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home.

Intermediate Care

Short-Stay Care

Short-stay care is often called “respite care”. It means someone can stay at Ormesby Grange Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Short-stay care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.
