The aim of our Clients Charter is to describe the standards and quality of care and service each resident should expect to receive and to ensure that the services provided are responsive to the needs and wishes of the Resident
It is intended that services provided by Balmoral Care centre upon the rights, wishes and aspirations of its Clients. Implicit in the charter is the commitment to enable Clients to maintain access to the full range of entitlements enjoyed by all members of society.
We are committed to providing services on an individual basis, ensuring that wherever possible Clients receive a service that meets their particular needs, choices and aspirations.
The Clients Charter is part of the continuing process of informing Clients of their rights and privileges so as to allow them to make informed choices with regard to their care.
