Quiet Cheltenham location
Royal Court is a purpose built accessible home in a quiet residential location in Cheltenham. Exceptionally well maintained, it offers 43 light and spacious apartments each with their own front door, grouped into small communities to give a calmer and more personal environment. Five of the apartments are doubles, which can accommodate couples or friends if desired.
In addition we have a suite of newly refurbished rooms to offer guests respite care.
Since Royal Court joined the Lilian Faithfull Care family in 2016 we have built a conservatory to double the size of the communal areas and launched a programme of refurbishment. The architect-designed conservatory floods the communal spaces with light and creates a modern uplifting space which, alongside our refurbished lounge and dining room, provides plenty of space to enjoy our activities programme, socialise with family and friends or find a quieter spot to watch the world go by.
Behind their own front door the bright apartments each have a small hall leading to the lounge (with a kitchen area), a shower room and bedroom. As part of our mission to create a true ‘home from home‘ feel residents are welcome to add their own furnishings and personal belongings.
Our courtyard garden is filled with raised beds which offer the opportunity to enjoy a spot of gardening or enjoy the many seating areas whenever the weather allows!
At Royal Court we can offer people a little day to day support amidst their full and independent lives right the way through to full nursing care. We are often referred to as the ‘gentle first step’ when looking for care. We pride ourselves on a home from home atmosphere and the whole team work hard to make the transition into care as seamless as possible.
Our ethos is to provide person-centred care so we tailor our care and support around your needs and preferences. We offer 24 hour care and support and provide an emergency pendant for residents to call for immediate help. We have specialist knowledge of dementia and offer additional free support to family and friends through our Memory Awareness Support Team (MAST).
We work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of external health professionals to ensure every resident’s care needs are met and unnecessary hospital admissions are avoided. We also have close links with the local GP surgeries who hold fortnightly surgeries at Royal Court and have a range of visiting services as required.
We offer flexible day care, welcoming guests to enjoy their day with us with company, home cooked food, activities, trips and events.
At Royal Court we strive to make life fun and fulfilling for our residents. We often find people gain a ‘new lease of life’ after moving in; with all the daily chores taken care of and with help on hand, residents can find new energy to follow their interests and hobbies. We are always delighted to respond to suggestions and ideas from residents and their families to ensure there is something relevant and stimulating for all.

"We wanted to thank everyone involved in Dads care. The kindness, patience, genuine care and understanding, together with the humour you shared with him greatly improved the quality of his life. The dignity you allowed him and the compassion you have him really did make a difference. Each and everyone of you, through your care, helped him more than you could ever imagine. We could never thank you enough."
"Thank you so much for looking after Dad, he loved all your conversations, made his last 18months very happy and mine knowing you were all there."
"Sincere thanks to all at Royal Court for the wonderful care you took of Mum. She was really happy there and you were an extended family to her."
"We’d like to thank you all for the professional and caring way which you looked after mum during her time at Royal Court. It was lovely to see the affection in which she was held by all and to know she had all the support she needed."
