Organisational Arrangements

The day to day running of Vine House is the responsibility of our Registered Manager who ensures that the home is run to a high standard and meets all of our resident’s needs whilst also ensuring that we keep up to date with current legislation and regulations.

Health Care

Vine House does not provide nursing care. However those whose needs can be managed by the community District Nursing Service will be welcome and staff will support all self-care as well as providing full care.

  • A doctor is called out at any time needed.
  • The District Nurse comes into the Home twice a week to check on any on-going treatment and give any advice required.
  • Dentists can be arranged based on Service User's choice and transport can be arranged within the Hyndburn area.
  • Chiropodist calls every 10 – 12 weeks.
