Windsor Street Care Centre
A warm welcome to our home
Located on an attractive residential road in north Cheltenham is Windsor Street Care Centre, a welcoming home that offers individualised residential, dementia, nursing and respite care for up to 81 residents.
- Dementia Care
- Nursing Care
- Residential Care
- Respite Care
- Vaccinated against COVID-19
This delightful home is split into 5 households, each with a different specialist focus, to ensure that residents enjoy more of a home-from-home experience. Within each household there is an individual care team, a sitting room and dining room.
The five households and their specialities:
- Kensington – Residential
- Blenheim – Residential dementia
- Sandringham – Residential dementia
- Hampton – Residential dementia
- Balmoral – Nursing
Alongside 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.
Individual rooms are tastefully and 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. For residents wishing to bring their own furniture and to personalise their room, this is of course possible, just speak to our team when you visit.
The home has extensive outdoor areas including a safe, much loved and nourished landscaped garden where regular activities take place throughout the year. In addition, communal balcony areas where residents can sit and enjoy the views or to help if they are of the green fingered type and have an interest in gardening and potting of plants.
The sunny garden is protected from the wind and has been designed to ensure residents can enjoy maintaining the space as much we do. We hold barbeques and parties throughout the summer months and enjoy firework evenings and winter festivities too.
There are a number of wooden benches, chairs and tables so that residents are able to sit and talk to each other in the warmer months with many enjoying having their lunch outside.

Meet the team
The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.
Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake for residents, friends and family to enjoy.
Each of the households has their own small kitchen dining room where residents can take their meals if they wish. Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.
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 Windsor Street. We have two dedicated Activities Co-ordinators 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 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.
- Visits from Pets as Therapy Dogs
- Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba
- Fun activities with the local toddler and nursery group’s
- Board game competitions and quizzes
- Race days
- Music therapy sessions
- 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.
Our location is within a vibrant community, meaning there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in:
- Coffee mornings
- Care Home Open Day
- Summer and Autumn fetes
- Christmas parties
