Our home is a sociable place and there is always something going on. Our dedicated team runs daily activities in the home, such as flower arranging or a musician coming to perform for us, as well as day trips and outings to suit the residents.
This includes shopping trips or exchanging books at the local library, through to going to the theatre or the seaside, and much more besides. We support our residents to live the lives they choose. Visitors are always welcome and we love to get to know our residents’ family and friends, too.
This delightful home is split into five households, each with a 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, so that each has its own personality.
In addition, there are communal balcony areas where residents can sit and enjoy the views of the gardens below.
Individual rooms are tastefully and decorated with luxury fittings and furnishings. All rooms also have ensuite facilities, remote controlled colour television, and a state-of-the-art nurse call system.
Their bedroom is a personal haven for each resident and we encourage them to make it their own; bring cherished paintings and photographs, cushions, other personal belongings – anything that will make it feel familiar and like home.
We can accommodate residents wishing to bring their own furniture, too, just speak to our team when you visit.
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.
We are extremely proud to have our very own Admiral Nurses, specialist nurses who benefit from ongoing development by Dementia UK. They offer life-changing emotional and practical support, expert knowledge and understanding in this condition.
In addition, our Admiral Nurses are able to help families with advice, and run support groups for local communities with suggestions of how to support their loved one in this life stage.
We also offer respite stays at Windsor Street, where we can care for someone during a shorter period. This might be for a holiday, convalescence after a spell in hospital, or for any other reason that means a change in normal routine.
Outside, the gardens are beautiful! Residents love to spend time outdoors surrounded by the gorgeous colours and delicious scents of the flowers and plants. There is a patio area, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine with friends in the summer, and lots of accessible space for activities to take place throughout the year.
Our more green-fingered residents have opportunity to get involved in the gardening and potting of plants. Windsor Street’s grounds were the runner-up in our 2023 Trust in Bloom competition judging the gardens across the sixty homes in our estate.
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.

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
