Mission description

San Remo’s ethos revolves around the enhancement of quality of life for all of our residents. Our vision of quality of life goes beyond the provision of medical care and physical health. We uphold a balanced approach to care provision that seeks to promote both the physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents through strong clinical practice and a clear social care ethos. Our activity program is an important component of our social care ethos providing excellent opportunity for social engagement for staff and residents. However more central to our social care ethos is social care ethos goes beyond the provision of an engaging social program. It is an overall approach to care provision adapted by each staff member whereby each interaction is viewed as opportunity to add depth to loving relationships with our residents.
