We have taken great pride in providing access to a wide range of facilities and services, and with this in mind, the home has been designed with adaptable features.
The 68 bedrooms, all with en-suite wet rooms, far exceed the dimensions specified by the Care Standard Act to ensure that our residents are able to entertain their visitors in private if they so wish. All bedrooms have the ability to be adapted for ceiling hoists, or any other specialist equipment which, to help enhance the lives of our residents.
All rooms have a telephone point, which allows residents to communicate with significant others in confidentiality, alongside a television point, and wireless internet.
We also provide an en-suite room that is dedicated as a sleep over room, for relatives or any significant others that would like to stay over.
Access throughout the home
Each floor has two passenger lifts to ensure easy access throughout the home. We also offer communal bathrooms with specialist equipment, several large lounges, dining rooms, and a quiet room for those who wish to spend time in a calmer environment.
The ground floor offers a superior conservatory area, which has direct wheelchair access to our extensive and beautiful gardens, where residents will have the opportunity to put their green-fingers to use if they so wish.
All communal areas have been designed to ensure maximum access and observation.
Dining and housekeeping
The Home’s kitchen is located on the top floor, and produces a varied menu, which consists of produce that is locally sourced where possible. Residents will have the option to state their preferences for the menu and assistance is on hand if help is needed with dining.
We hope to sustain our residents’ sense of independence as much as possible, so we also have a Skills Kitchen on the ground floor, which allows residents to prepare their own snacks and drinks, and also a private dining facility for visitors who wish to dine with their loved ones.
The laundry is located on the top floor, with provision for each floor to have their laundry completed independently of each other, to minimize the potential for cross-infection.
The Home has the latest moving and handling equipment, with a Moving and Handling instructor available on each floor. A variety of beds cater for every need, including, divans, profiling, HI-Low, and bariatric beds. We also have a variety of mattresses and pressure relieving equipment in stock, in order to allow us to be able to respond immediately to any change of needs.
