Overview

Our sheltered home offers safe and independent living for older people who want to be as self-sufficient as possible but without the worry of maintaining their own home. We provide residents with the privacy and independence of having their own affordable, high quality accommodation combined with the support of professional, dedicated staff and the companionship of others. We personalise our service to meet the needs of residents so that they can enjoy freedom, security and peace of mind with support when they need it. Residents are provided with two home-cooked meals a day and have the opportunity to take part in a range of organised social activities and outings throughout the year.

This beautiful house has been carefully adapted to accommodate the varying needs of later life. The home is well maintained and offers a very high standard of accommodation for ten residents, each with their own private en-suite room. The home is easily accessible and has been fitted with a stairlift system. Residents can enjoy their time in the home’s communal lounge, dining room or spacious garden. The home also offers laundry facilities, Wi-Fi and operates with a community alarm system that is monitored twenty four hours a day. All residents are provided with two delicious home-cooked meals each day, which are served in the communal dining room. Our rooms come unfurnished so that residents can bring their own furniture and belongings with them to really make their space their own.

Our monthly rental charge is fully inclusive and includes: an experienced House Manager and support staff, home-cooked meals every lunchtime and teatime, telephone line rental, call charges and broadband, building and garden maintenance, gas, electricity and water rates, community alarm monitoring, cleaning of communal areas, laundry facilities, council tax and a TV licence.

Life at the house

Coffee morning

Our caring staff organise a variety of social activities and outings throughout the year for our residents, which range from daily coffee mornings to day trips. We often enjoy fetes and garden parties in the summer and festive activities at Christmas.

Every year we take part in Abbeyfield Week – a week when we open our doors to the local community to show off what's on offer at Abbeyfield. We celebrate this by hosting events such as fetes, tea parties and garden parties, to which residents, their families and the public are invited. We also take part in Abbeyfield’s annual Coping at Christmas Campaign when older people, who would otherwise spend Christmas alone, are invited to join us for the festive period.

Our residents often enjoy days out and visits to other Abbeyfield homes but when they prefer to stay home we still like to find entertaining things for them to do, such as listening to music, watching movies, documentaries and live performances, playing games or simply chatting over a cup of coffee with a slice of cake.

We like to make a big fuss for residents’ birthdays; we decorate the house with balloons and banners and always host a tea party so that the residents and their families can get together to celebrate with cake, cards and presents.

We celebrate all of the public holidays and commemorations throughout the year with a themed activity, party or tradition - our favourites are Easter and Christmas. At Easter we host an Easter bonnet competition when residents create extraordinary and extravagant Easter bonnets and, at Christmas, we enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, a glass of wine and some mince pies, whilst listening to carols.



Kitchen

Our experienced and well trained staff provide residents with varied, nutritious and enjoyable home-cooked meals every lunchtime and teatime, which are served in the communal dining room between 12am-1pm and 4.30pm-5.30pm respectively.

Residents are responsible for preparing their own breakfast but are offered the opportunity to meet every morning for coffee at around 10am. We believe this approach allows residents to start the day the right way – with independence and companionship.

We cook all our meals using fresh ingredients, which we either purchase locally in the morning or have delivered directly to our front door – our residents really appreciate having home-cooked meals made using fresh ingredients. Our most popular dishes are our hearty home-made meals like casseroles and roast dinners. We regularly have a roast dinner on Sunday but residents can have whatever meal they like; in fact, residents help plan the menu for the week ahead.

We are more than happy to accommodate special dietary requirements and we tailor our menu to the tastes and wishes of our residents.
