Extra Care

Two of our residential homes include ‘extra care suites’ which help bridge the gap between residential and nursing care.

The Bluebell Suite at Faithfull House and The Butterfly Wing at Royal Court offer specialist care for those who have a higher level of needs. It suits residents living with a wide range of conditions (such as dementia) who might otherwise feel lost in a larger home or find a busy environment overwhelming. Residents needing extra support flourish in this family-sized environment.

At each location the Extra Care Suites are self-contained with their own lounge, dining rooms and accommodation. They both have their own dedicated team of experienced staff and offer higher than usual staff to resident ratios.

The calm and tranquil settings offer familiarity and continuity which gives extra reassurance and comfort to its residents. Activities are on a one to one basis and include music therapy, cookery, massage and gentle exercise.

In addition at Royal Court has a suite which has been fully adapted for specialist bariatric care. This apartment has the space and equipment to ensure those living with obesity have the same dignity in care.
