Question 2. What do I need to send with my parent when he/she enters a frail care?

Most frail care facilities has a list of things to send with.  This includes everything from tooth paste to clothes.  We also have a list, but as a general principle we advise people to bring things that their parent will value for example:

  1. Their own bedding and favourite cushion.
  2. Photos that can be placed on a night stand or be hung on a wall.
  3. Their own bed or just the headboard of their bed.

We have our own furniture, but we try to make people feel at home as much as possible.  It is important that they experience this facility as a home and not a hospital.
