How Safe Are My Belongings In A Care Home?
Moving into a residential care or nursing home from your own home can leave you concerned over the safety of your personal belongings, whether this is your jewellery, money or other items. Living in accommodation where there are many other people will be an unusual experience for most, and it is understandable that you will have these concerns.
Your Own Room
In our care homes, every resident has their own personal room in which they can keep their belongings. Each room includes a space for clothing and spaces for other belongings. While the room will be the personal space of the resident, it will not be locked due to health and safety concerns. While we do not provide a safe, the resident is welcome to bring a small safe with them should they feel inclined to do so.
In your room, your belongings should feel as safe and secure as you would have done in your own home. The team of carers and other residents should feel like part of a big family that you can trust to not invade your privacy and belongings.
