The Rumailah Hospital Residential Care Community is a housing compound for people with disabilities, where they can live and benefit from a home-like setting while receiving professional healthcare tailored to their needs.
This specialized facility is for adults who are assisted with the general activities of daily living by a team of professional staff. The community-style residential living environment encourages residents towards lifestyle changes and assists them in achieving their full potential and to lead more fulfilled and dignified lives.
There are 13 single storey villas, each with five to seven single bedrooms with an adjoining bathroom that has been modified for accessibility needs. The villas have a communal living and dining area, a kitchen (for the preparation of tea and snacks) and a laundry.
Each villa has two professional registered nursing staff assigned 24 hours per day to look after the residents and to ensure the level of care is of the same s tandard they received in the hospital.
Meals are delivered by Rumailah Hospital’s catering facility and in the villa’s kitchen, staff and residents can prepare small snacks or other refreshments outside regular mealtimes as they would at home.
The villas have enhanced accessibility features including easy wheelchair access and are cleaned and maintained daily by professional staff managed by Rumailah Hospital.
Cars (other than emergency vehicles) are not permitted within the compound to enable and encourage residents to move around more freely and safely. Designated golf carts are available to take residents around the compound if they need more assistance.
A community clubhouse enables families to organize more private celebrations with their relatives. This clubhouse has an adjacent swimming pool which has been adapted for the needs of the residents able to utilize this facility.
This Residential Care Community is the first facility of its kind in the GCC, where specialist healthcare services, including medical, nursing and allied health service, are provided round the clock to the residents according to their individual needs.
