What is the staffing level?

We have a very broad mix of skills at Leonard Pulham, ranging from Registered Nurses, some specialising in specific areas of Nursing care, as well as End-of Life/Palliative care to NVQ trained Health Care Assistants. We also have a large number of Domestic and Catering staff, who help to ensure all the needs of our Residents are met. 

Can my mother stay there for the rest of her life?

Because we have the facilities and trained staff to deal with all disabilities and end of life/palliative care, our Residents can end their days with us peacefully, in comfortable, familiar surroundings, secure in the knowledge that they are receiving the best possible specialised care.

Do you provide respite care?

If there is an available room, we are very happy to facilitate respite care. Understandably, families occasionally need a break from caring for an older relative. We ensure your loved ones receive first class respite care in a happy ‘home from home’ atmosphere.

What activities do you provide?

We have a full-time Activities’ Coordinator who arranges group activities most afternoons, catering to all tastes. Activities include movies to knitting, general knowledge quizzes to keep-fit and art classes to discussions. Numerous musical groups and individuals regularly entertain our Residents and on special occasions, functions are held at weekends so that family and friends can attend. One highlight in our activities calendar is our annual Summer Garden Party. Outings are organised throughout the year to various places of interest. Specially adapted vehicles are hired to ensure that Residents with mobility needs are included in all activities. The Hairdresser visits the home weekly and there are regular visits from a Chiropodist. Manicures can also be arranged. There is a strong relationship with the local churches and regular services are arranged within the Home.

Do you have gardens that are accessible to everyone?

We have beautiful gardens, which include a large patio area with benches and comfortable garden furniture, with ramps enabling easy access for all. The numerous bird baths and bird tables ensure there is a constant array of wildlife for Residents to observe and enjoy, both outside and from their rooms. Strawberry teas and garden parties are a regular occurrence during the summer.

How do I Donate?

The Home is a Registered Charity and as such, is a not-for-profit organisation. We rely entirely on our fee income, as well as gifts and donations for our running costs and major projects.

If you would like further information in connection with fees or you would like to make a donation, please call our Home Manager on 01296 625188 for a confidential discussion.
