Welcome to Polish Retirement Home
Polish Retirement Home is a modern purpose built hostel for the elderly members of the Polish community. The cultural and linguistic needs of our residents are the central core principle of our hostel. Our professionally trained caring personnel provide 24-hour care to maintain dignity, self-respect and independence of residents. We are a flexible and multilingual service, including English, Polish, Ukrainian, German, Russian and other Slavic languages being spoken by our staff. Accommodating 29 permanent residents and one respite resident, the Polish Retirement Home offers bright, spacious, comfortable and relaxed living within a warm and friendly environment. Respite care is offered for short stays (63 days in a financial year) and is often a good way to be introduced to long-term hostel living. For the majority of elderly people the transition from the family home to a new way of living can be daunting. It is difficult to leave their home, which holds many memories. The neighbourhood is familiar and family and friends often live close by. However, in some cases, moving to a hostel is the right and best decision. It means moving into accommodation shared with other elderly people. More importantly, it means receiving the help and support to live comfortably and securely.
Mission is to provide quality and customised residential care facilities
and services to the Polish elderly and disabled in a culturally and
linguistically appropriate setting. The Polish Retirement Home contributes
to the quality of life and independence of those within the Polish
community who are the most vulnerable and in need of assistance. Respect
and understanding are the basis of our service.”
