A warm welcome to our home

  • Residential Care
  • Respite Care

St Wilfrid’s Priory Care Home offers a delightful home environment split across two floors, designed with wellbeing and comfort in mind. The individual bedrooms each offer a sitting area, an emergency 24 hour call system and plenty of space to allow residents to personalise rooms.  Some rooms have en-suite facilities, wet rooms and kitchenette areas. They offer a peaceful oasis, and we encourage residents to make them their own with their favourite belongings like pictures and trinkets, or blankets and cushions. 

The home offers large, comfortable, homely living areas with stunning views of the historic castle and gardens, where residents can join in with the wide range of activities taking place on a daily basis. 

St Wilfrid's Priory - Dining Room

Life at St Wilfrid's Priory is about residents living the life they want for themselves. We encourage residents to get involve with the activities we offer onsite, as well as getting out and about. We organise a variety of activities in the home, and arrange trips to the local area and further afield, such as the theatre next door, or trips to beach or the castle itself. 

St Wilfrid's Priory Gardens

We are very proud of our outdoor space at St Wilfrid's Priory. From taking tea on the patio to growing vegetables in our allotment, there is a way for everyone to enjoy the garden and it's a lovely space to entertain families and guests, especially in the warmer months.  

There are a great many flowers and shrubs in the beds around our lawns, which are perfect for games like boules and croquet, and we have a summer house for those who prefer to spectate. The well-established trees provide shade in the hottest weather, and are a haven for wildlife all year round.

OSJCT Menu

The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on, so hot drinks are available throughout the day.

You are free to take your meals in your room if you wish or you can join other residents in the main dining hall to enjoy your food in a more social environment.

Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at St Wilfrid’s Priory Care Home. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving market town. Here is a sample of activities on offer:

  • Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
  • Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba
  • Fun activities with ‘Messy Miniatures’, the local toddler group
  • Board game competitions and quizzes
  • Music therapy sessions
  • Gardening
  • Arts and crafts
  • Communal Church services

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

We also organise regular events to meet potential residents and for all to join in with:

Meet the team

Handyman

Graham is the handyman at St Wilfrid's Priory and his jolly voice can often be heard around the home.

He jokes that his nickname is, "Ah, Graham!" or "Graham, can you just . . ." because his work is so varied and he's happy to help wherever he can.  Graham is passionate about making sure the residents have everything they need, and creating the lovely stripes on the lawn.

In his spare time, you'll find Graham out walking on the South Downs or the Brecon Beacons, or tending to one of his motorbikes.

Kitchen Assistant

Rhys Saunders began working with OSJCT and St Wilfrid’s Priory at the beginning of December 2022.  He started working at a Bank housekeeper and found that he liked working with the team and the residents so took a permanent role in the kitchen. As a kitchen assistant, Rhys plays an important role in creating the delicious, nutritious meals that our residents so enjoy. 

Laundry Assistant

Amanda Scarbrow has been with the Trust and St Wilfrid’s Priory since Oct 2022. She works as a laundry assistant and loves her job because each day is varied. Amanda enjoys chatting to the residents and have a laugh with them. She gets great satisfaction from cleaning and ironing the residents’ clothes and repairing them if needed, and she enjoys being part of a caring team.

Care Leader

Tania Woodburn started her career with St Wilfrid’s Priory four years ago as a night carer.  Since then, she has progressed to become a care lead and has been doing that job since 2021. She enjoys her role thanks to the fantastic team and lovely residents who make St Wilfrid's a very special place to work. Tania also loves having the castle on our doorstep!

Activities Co-ordinator

Cecilia Raggett is our Activities Co-ordinator at St Wilfrid’s Priory. She has been with the Trust for over 15 years. Ces, as we know her, joined us a carer and worked my way up to Activities Coordinator. She enjoys the variety that comes with her role and loves seeing the residents happy and smiling, and having fun.
