Facilities

All thirty four rooms are furnished to a high standard and we have a rolling programme of refurbishment. Residents are encouraged to personalise their new home, whether it be with favourite furniture or more personal sentimental items. Each room has a nurse call system, a vanity unit, a television set and a telephone point. Some residents like the facility of having their own dedicated telephone line and personal number and this can be arranged via BT.

There are two large, comfortable lounges – one with a 51 inch HD television – and a bright airy dining room, as well as a spacious conservatory overlooking the gardens. Family, friends and well-behaved dogs are always welcome.

All our bathrooms are fitted with the latest equipment and are suitable for even the most severely disabled individuals and the Home has recently installed wet rooms.

The Home is also fortunate in that it owns a mobility car, which allows us to cater outings to individual preferences.

The comfort of good cooking

Our residents enjoy fresh, home-made meals, from a diverse and continually changing menu, all prepared in our own kitchen. Sharon Grindley, our experienced Catering & Domestic Services Manager, makes a point of speaking to all residents every week on an individual basis to discuss their likes, dislikes and the forthcoming plans for the menu. We appreciate that meals are something that residents particularly look forward to. We pride ourselves on a varied and tasty menu and we endeavour to include traditional favourites such as a mid-week roast and fish ‘n’ chips on a Friday. There are two menu choices daily, with a selection of desserts to choose from. Special diets are catered for (e.g. diabetic/vegetarian/soft food/coeliac).

We put particular emphasis on sourcing produce from local suppliers where ever possible and, as mentioned above, all our food is prepared in our own kitchen.

Our afternoon tea trolley with home-made cakes and biscuits is a particular favourite! Even our birthday cakes are individually made and decorated to celebrate the special occasion.

We are renowned for our short-bread biscuits – we may even tempt you with some when you visit…

"Wholesome, freshly cooked and tasty. I always look forward to mealtimes here!"
