Latest update for Visitors
Here at The Orders of St John Care Trust our priority is the safety and wellbeing of residents, colleagues and visitors in our services. Following Monday’s advice by the government on the vulnerability of the over 70s we have made the difficult but responsible decision to restrict access to our homes to all but the most essential visitors required to either to protect the health of our residents, or to ensure that buildings remain safe and essential supplies are delivered.

Stow on the Wold
A warm welcome to our home
Located in the heart of the Cotswold market town Stow-on-the-Wold, Edwardstow Court is designed with an eye to a traditional manor house, with a blend of Cotswold stone and contemporary construction. Opened in March 2018 Edwardstow Court offers compassionate, individualised residential, dementia, respite and day care for up to 48 residents.

- Dementia Respite
- Long Term Residential
- Residential Respite
- Day Care
In addition to the first-class care we provide, it's our wealth of facilities and activities that really stand out. The purpose-built home environment has been specifically designed to support the needs of older people and those with dementia, from aiding memory in day-to-day living and reminiscence therapy, to reinforcing personal identity and navigating the home. Carefully chosen artwork, soft furnishings and themed corridors have been selected that are of an era likely to be familiar to our residents or are of meaningful subjects such as music or crafts.
This delightful home features small households with eight bedrooms. Every household has its own comfortable beautifully furnished lounge and kitchen dining area, with easy access to assisted bathrooms and cosy sitting rooms.
Individual rooms are tastefully decorated with luxury fittings and furnishings. All rooms also have en-suite facilities, remote controlled colour television and a state-of-the-art nurse call system. A personal haven for each resident.
Edwardstow Court offers an outstanding home environment, with a thoughtfully landscaped garden. The sunny courtyard is protected from the wind on all sides around a beautiful pergola with many of the rooms facing onto this. We pride ourselves in the maintenance of our garden and residents get involved and plant out the tubs and planters producing a splendid array of colour and blooms for everyone to enjoy. There are a number of wooden benches so that residents are able to sit and talk to each other in the warmer months and plenty of flat pathways so the whole garden can be accessed.
