Services offered: Dementia Care Nursing Care Respite Care Residential Care
Opened in 2013, this welcoming home is located on Windsor Street, an attractive residential road in north Cheltenham. The home offers individualised residential, dementia, nursing and respite care for up to 81 residents. Set in modern, friendly and comfortable households with extensive outdoor areas including a secure landscaped garden where regular activities take place throughout the year. In addition, communal balcony areas where residents can sit and enjoy the surroundings or help if of interest with gardening and potting of plants.
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.
About the Home
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:
- Blenheim – Residential dementia
- Sandringham – Residential dementia
- Hampton – Residential dementia
- Balmoral – Nursing
- Kensington - Residential
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. For residents wishing to bring their own furniture this is of course possible, just speak to our team when you visit.
The sunny garden is protected from the wind and has been designed to ensure residents can enjoy maintaining the space as much we do. Our balcony areas face into the garden allowing residents throughout the home to enjoy the views. 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.
The flat garden lends itself beautifully to walks around the garden enjoying the sights and scents it has to offer.

Residents can enjoy social activities every day in the central communal areas including a barbers and hairdressing salon, the visiting sweet cart, and the outdoor balconies.
