Scottish charity Royal Blind is building a new care home in Paisley, Renfrewshire. Jenny’s Well will offer nursing care to older people with visual impairment, including those with other medical needs such as dementia.
Jenny’s Well will welcome residents who are funded privately as well as through social care. All residents will receive the same high standard of expert care and accommodation.
Residents at Jenny’s Well need to be registered blind, be partially sighted or have a visual impairment that significantly impacts on their independence. This could include sight conditions such as:
- Macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Stroke related visual impairment
Staff will all be fully trained in working with visually impaired people as well as dealing with complex care issues. They will be led Morag Francis, older people’s services manager, who has 24 years of experience working for Royal Blind care homes.
Registrations will open in June for residents that require a place from October. An information day will be held on 3 June at Paisley Town Hall.
