We offer 13 ground floor single occupancy bedrooms with wash basin, serviced by WCs and bath or shower rooms within a few steps of the door. There are 4 first floor bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, served by a stairlift.
All rooms are individually decorated prior to arrival, having new replacement double glazing, opening onto the garden or courtyard garden. Rooms are centrally heated and equipped with a staff call system. WiFi is available throughout the home. TV aerial and telephone points are installed in each room, available for personal provision by the resident.
Residents are encouraged to bring some of their own personal effects, to make their room even more of a home from home.
Our cooks prepare a varied menu from fresh produce to suit any individual nutritional needs such as vegetarian, diabetic and low fat diets.
Whilst we encourage residents to come to the dining room for companionship, meals may be taken in the resident's room to suit individual situations.
Our residents offer suggestions for the design of the menu at our monthly residents meetings.
Our philosophy is that our residents live life to the full, so our activity programme means doing what our residents want to do. This includes:
- Coffee mornings
- Music concerts from visiting performers
- Exercise classes
- Garden parties
- Christmas concerts
- Games and participatory TV game shows
- Arts and crafts
- Sensory stimulation
Our shared spaces include the dining room and sitting room where daily activities take place, and a bright sunny conservatory which offers a peaceful setting for relaxation. We also have a modern full service hairdressing salon.
Outside, the central courtyard and circular walk provide for exercise and seating for enjoying the gardens or watching the world go by.
In addition to the care of our dedicated staff, our residents are supported by regular visits from external medical staff, a chiropodist, a hairdresser and local clergy providing services on a regular basis.
