Accommodation and facilities

Relatives are encouraged to bring in personal, sentimental items. This can include old photographs (please be mindful of bringing in new photos as these can cause anxiety), a favourite blanket, or a chair. These items can help bring comfort to loved ones. We want to make sure that our residents feel completely comfortable and that their room is their own.

At night, before falling asleep, our staff team likes to sit with our residents about some of the items in their rooms to help bring them comfort. If you bring a favourite blanket, having this brushed against the face can really help people with advanced stages of dementia feel more settled.

Communal spaces

Some people choose a room and stay in that room for most of the day, but most people change and gravitate to different rooms for different reasons. Some people who may be enjoying music in the conservatory may then appreciate a DVD playing the film 'Oliver' and move to the middle lounge. Some of the people in the green lounge may be watching a black-and-white War film, but then suddenly appreciate the 'Some Mothers Do Have Em' film or the live music being played by the various visiting musicians that we arrange several times a week.  People may gravitate towards some arts and crafts, and some, surprisingly, just feel the need to help with something they have been doing all their lives—the washing up!


In the front garden, we have a bench. Some people enjoy engaging with passersby with a hello or 'morning'. ''This helps the people living in the home feel part of the neighbourhood and community.  Some people living in the home enjoy watching young schoolchildren from the local school just down the road. 

We have easy access to our large decking area in the back garden, just off the conservatory, which has picnic tables, plenty of chairs, and several rattan sofas with comfy cushions. This area has also been popular when visitors stay for dinner, drinks, and snacks with their relatives and friends. For people using wheelchairs or specialist chairs, there is easy access to the decking area. There is a large storage box full of garden activity 'stuff, from blowing bubbles to various bats, balls, skipping ropes, hoola hoops, etc., which can also be used by visiting children.

In the lower back garden, we grow runner beans, tomatoes, strawberries, and lots of herbs. Those living in the home are also involved in the picking of vegetables and herbs that we grow. Several people living in the home also enjoy helping the staff team put out the laundry on our many washing lines. 

We also have a side patio area, which is always popular with the people living in the home as it is surrounded on all sides and therefore away from any breeze, which can cause issues with people with dementia. This area is straight off the early-stage lounge with early-level access and is suitable for wheelchairs and specialist chairs.
