The Salvation Army believes that older members of the society deserve to be treated with dignity, and to receive care when it is needed, in an environment which will enhance quality of life. Youell Court provides residential care in a safe, secure, Christian environment for both men and women who can no longer manage in their own homes.
Youell Court was opened in October 2000. The building is owned by The Salvation Army and although admission is open to anyone irrespective of personal belief, its ethos is Christian. Not all the staff are practising Christians but Youell Court is run on Christian principles, and practical care is enhanced by an awareness that people may also need spiritual support. There is an ordained minister on the management team who is available for all residents.
This purpose-built centre for the elderly accommodates residents, living in 5 self-contained suites of eight single bedrooms, each suite having its own lounge and dining area.
At Youell Court, each resident is encouraged to remain as independent as possible and to continue to make choices which enhance and enrich life, as far as is practicable. Residents are encouraged to continue with former interests if at all feasible, and also to make suggestions for social activities.
Residents are encouraged to enjoy the gardens at Youell Court which are currently being developed to provide pleasure even for those whose sight may be failing. Residents also have access to the inner courtyards where they can sit and walk in safety.
Youell Court never forgets that each resident is an individual with individual needs.
