Elderly Residential Care on the Fylde Coast

Our three residential care homes are privately owned and personally manged by the owner together with the homes’ experienced managers who oversees the day to day running of the homes to a very high standard. We take great pride in ensuring that the happiness and well being of our residents is at the centre of everything we do. Our care home business is family owned; our first care home was purchased in 2002. The family have extensive experience in the care home market.

We understand that living in a care home can never be the same as living in your own home but we strive to make our homes as close as possible to living in your own home. In each of our homes we specialise in 24-hour care for no more than 21 elderly ladies and gentlemen in a homely, comfortable and safe environment. We take great pride in providing a high standard of friendly, individual and personal care. Each of our homes are very personal and family orientated catering for residential care of the elderly and offers accommodation to a wide range of ages from the young, 55+ to the young at heart 100+, offering short term holidays, short term and respite care and long-term permanent placements.

We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who assess the performance of each home on a regular basis, ensuring that we offer good care to the residents of our home. There is a link on our website to our latest CQC report for each home. When the CQC inspect care homes they provide a rating of our care. The current CQC rating is displayed on our website for each of our homes.

If you feel that any of our homes could be the home you are looking for and you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us on one of the telephone numbers below. Should you wish to view any of the homes, you are welcome to visit at any time. We invite prospective residents to spend a day with us free of charge before making the final decision.

Welcome to Glen Tanar

Glen Tanar is a very personal and family orientated Home in Bispham, Blackpool, catering for residential care of the elderly and offers accommodation to a wide range of ages from the young 55+ to the young at heart 100+, offering short term holidays, short term and respite care and long term permanent placements. Glen Tanar is a large detached property that has been sympathetically converted to create a unique residential home for the elderly. The home is set in its own grounds and has ample parking areas. The home is fully equipped to meet the individual needs of its residents, whilst retaining a homely and inviting environment. Glen Tanar is ideally situated in a quiet residential area of Bispham close to the Queen’s Promenade. The home is convenient for a short stroll to the local shops or to the promenade. Offering rooms for just 21 residents, we believe our home is the perfect size; large enough to provide all the facilities and services our residents require, small enough to retain a personal and homely feel. Families and friends play an important role in life at Glen Tanar, helping to make the home a real “home” for our residents. We have an open door policy, meaning residents can have visitors whenever they choose. Making the decision to move to a residential home is never taken lightly. Choosing a home with the facilities and an environment which suits each individual is extremely important, which is why we encourage you to visit the homes and ask us questions.  Some future residents like to come along for a short stay first to see what life at the home is really like. We find this helps them to make the decision, removes the fear of the unknown for them and gives families peace of mind that their loved one is fully involved in decisions about their future home. We invite prospective residents to spend a day with us free of charge before making the final decision.

Why Us?

We are a family business, placing family values at the heart of everything we do. We believe this is reflected not only in the care we provide but the caring environment at both our homes.

Accommodation

The home has a large spacious lounge on the ground floor. This room has a large bay window from which the residents can enjoy the views of the garden and watch the passers-by. The lounge is tastefully decorated with comfortable high-back chairs, small tables, foot stools and televisions.

The home has a large dining room on the ground floor which opens on to the main lounge. The residents normally have their meals in this room.

Our bedrooms are tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard. All bedrooms have safety features including smoke detectors, 24-hour call systems and covered radiators. Bedrooms are located on both the ground and the upper floors. There are ample toilet facilities on both floors. The home has a shower on both floors, which is fitted with facilities to make them suitable for those residents with mobility difficulties. Some bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. All bedrooms are easily accessible via the four person passenger lift.

At Glen Tanar our activities coordinator engages the residents in a wide range of activities that they really enjoy. We also have a regular singer that performs for the residents at the home.  The daily activities include dominoes, singing, reminiscing, sitting in the lovely garden and accompanied walks and trips out. We also hold themed party nights and fun days that are a great favourite, such as our Scottish and Indian nights. Friends and relatives are also welcome to participate in our activities.

There are also a number of annual events which we celebrate. These include residents’ birthdays, Burns Night, St. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year.

We have a visiting hairdresser and chiropodist who regularly attend the home. Visiting clergy hold services in the home and volunteers from local churches take residents to services.

Glen Tanar has a beautiful garden with a delightful lawned area at the front of the home. The garden has a variety of flowers and shrubs where, during the summer months, the residents can enjoy the sunshine and the breath-taking sea air. There is also a private furnished garden area at the side of the home which is accessed from the lounge. The residents have been involved in helping us develop this garden area, using funds from the residents fund raised at our various fun days. We have added a summer hut, so the residents have somewhere to go outdoors when the weather is a little colder or wetter. Great care has been taken to ensure that the garden is accessible to wheelchairs to allow enjoyment for everyone.

Residents are able to choose where they would like to have their meals; either in the tastefully decorated dining room, or alone in their rooms if they wish.

All meals are carefully planned by our chef to be both nutritious and appetising. A choice of menu is available at each meal and special diets can be catered for. Each meal is freshly prepared using only the finest ingredients. Our menu is both wholesome and varied, providing a well balanced diet.

Tea, coffee and a selection of soft drinks and homemade cakes and biscuits are served at various times throughout the day.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality accommodation and individual care. Great emphasis is placed on the personal independence, dignity and quality of life of each resident. The foremost concern of the owner, manager and staff at all times is the well being of each person within our care.

At Glen Tanar we appreciate that every resident is different so each person has their own person centred plan of care. This plan covers their care needs and also their personal preferences and tastes. The care plan strikes a balance between providing care and support when it’s needed and helping the resident to maintain their independence. Our warm, friendly and homely atmosphere means that our residents can enjoy their daily lives with privacy and dignity in a safe caring environment.

Our highly experienced staff team comprises the home manager, care assistants, cooks and domestic staff. We have a team of highly qualified and experienced care staff most of whom hold an NVQ2 in Health and Social Care and some hold an NVQ3 and NVQ5. The manager holds a NVQ4 in Health and Social Care and a NVQ5 in Leadership and Management. We also have a couple of volunteers at the home that provide further activities for the residents. To enhance staff competence, the staff attend relevant training courses on a regular basis. We have been awarded the Investor in People award, which demonstrates our commitment to the development of our staff.
