Residential Care and Nursing Home
Morris House Nursing Home is a former school which was opened as a residential home over 20 years ago and has since benefited from a number of renovations and refurbishments incorporating one shared room and 23 single rooms, eleven of which are en-suite. Morris House is a large post-Victorian house set in pleasant gardens in the Uplands, a short distance from Swansea city centre. The Home is within walking distance of nearby shops, churches, pubs, takeaways and cafes, and has good bus links into Swansea and the surrounding areas.
Morris House is owned by Mr K and Mr S Mann and the manager is Mr Matthew Searle. Morris House has recently amended its registration with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales, to be able to accommodate a small number of residents with diagnosed dementia.
This is in addition to our main status as a Nursing Home, providing accommodation and nursing care for older people. Qualified Nursing Staff, who work under the direction of our Registered Manager, are on duty both day and night. In addition, we employ the appropriate number of Care Assistants twenty-four hours a day. There are three people employed on wakeful duty at night.
Care is available for people with complex nursing needs or dementia, male or female, over the age of sixty five who have either been assessed as needing nursing care and who will receive financial assistance through the care management system, or to people whose family accepts responsibility for the cost.
Morris House is not a dementia nursing home and as such would be in breach of its registration to admit a resident in need of dementia nursing care. Care covers emotional, social, cultural, spiritual and physical needs.
They may have other secondary needs for example:
- Sensory impairment
- Hospital aftercare
- Respite care
