A warm welcome to our home

  • Long Term Dementia
  • 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.

Edwardstow Bedroom

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.

Edwardstow Residents and Staff

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 lounge

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.
