The main activity of the Manor House Care Home is to offer residential care to those over 65 who can no longer manage at home. We offer a comfortable, warm and caring environment to those who require a little extra help and support. We are not a nursing home and so cannot meet people’s nursing needs nor are we specialised in terms of dementia care.
It is important to understand that the Home is a charitable trust which means that all of the fees paid for care are invested back in the Home for the benefit of our residents.
There are 25 rooms most of which are en-suite. The residents’ bedrooms are their space, it is entirely up to the individual how they wish to decorate or furnish the room. Staff may only enter bedrooms with permission from the resident. All rooms have television aerial points and many residents have their own telephones and Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. There is a vertical lift to access the first floor of the old part of the house and modern lift to take people to the two bedrooms in the more modern extension.
We have three lounges one of which has a small dining area where people can entertain their guests in private if they wish. Our large dining room is next to the kitchen and is usually where we have all our parties and entertainment. The two larger lounges are used constantly by the residents and visitors and are always a hive of activity.
Outside we have some magnificent gardens which give our residents a great deal of pleasure. We have very recently installed a large summer house which we call the ‘pavilion’ and this offers a lovely sheltered area to sit in the gardens and enjoy the view.
We serve a cooked breakfast every day and there are at least two choices of main course at lunch time. Our meat and vegetables are sourced locally, baking is done daily and we aim to cater for all tastes and needs. Our food is cooked and prepared fresh each day in our 5 star rated kitchens, and the menus are varied and interesting.
