About the property
Our nursing home provides high quality professional care for older people who find it difficult to look after themselves and who want the security of having highly skilled staff on site twenty four hours a day to help them with everyday tasks such as washing, dressing, toileting, taking medication or assisting them at mealtimes. Our home has been generously equipped to provide exceptional standards of service and personal care in a homely environment. Our highly qualified and experienced staff devote their full attention to the individual needs of our residents; we cater for residents’ physical, emotional and social needs and ensure their dignity, privacy and beliefs are upheld. Our residents have their own en-suite room with access to a communal lounge, dining room and garden and have the opportunity to take part in a range of daily activities. Residents also have access to health, leisure and community services, which are tailored to their individual needs. All meals are provided and special dietary requirements are catered for.
This purpose built house has been carefully designed to accommodate the varying needs of later life. The home is well maintained and offers a very high standard of accommodation for thirty two residents, each with their own private en-suite room. The home is easily accessible and has been fitted with a passenger lift. Residents can enjoy their time in the home’s communal sitting rooms, dining rooms, conservatory or landscaped garden. The home also provides in-house laundry, cleaning and hairdressing services and Wi-Fi. The home operates on a full board basis and has a well-appointed kitchen, which is run by professional catering staff who cater for the specific dietary requirements of each resident.
Our monthly rental charge is fully inclusive and includes: experienced and qualified nursing and support staff, home-cooked meals every mealtime, telephone line rental, call charges and broadband, building and garden maintenance, gas, electricity and water rates, cleaning and laundry services, council tax and a TV licence.

Our caring staff and volunteers organise a range of activities on a daily basis for our residents, which include weekly exercise classes, piano recitals, trips to the theatre, themed parties and visits from singers and performers. Residents also enjoy listening to music, watching movies and documentaries, playing games, crafting or simply chatting over a cup of coffee with a slice of cake. We also 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 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.
What's on the menu
Our experienced and well trained chefs provide residents with varied, nutritious and enjoyable home-cooked meals every meal time. Residents can choose between a continental or cooked breakfast in the morning and are severed a hot meal for lunch and a two course meal for dinner.
We cook all our meals using fresh ingredients, which are 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; our professional chefs are able to cater for the individual tastes and wishes of our residents and are more than happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements.
