Our Home Environment

Royal Court is a unique home as it offers spacious self-contained apartments for residents with round the clock residential care.

The 43 light and spacious apartments are grouped into small communities to give a calmer and more personal environment.  In addition to the apartments there are also three ensuite rooms.

The Butterfly Wing & Dragonfly Suite offer specialist dementia care. In addition to the apartments each has its own kitchen, dining room, lounge and safe access to the garden. The Bluebell Wing offers extra care for those who are more frail and need extra support. There are double apartments to accommodate couples, a respite care suite and an apartment adapted for Bariatric Care.

Royal Court is in a quiet residential area of Cheltenham with good bus links to the centre. The purpose built home has spacious lounges, dining rooms and the modern conservatory floods the communal spaces with light. Each apartment has its own front door, lounge (with kitchen area), shower room and bedroom. Resident’s and families often find that having their own apartment makes the decision to move into care that much easier.

The accessible gardens include raised beds, an allotment, greenhouse as well as large lawns and courtyard area.

Our Care

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 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. Our care team includes dementia specialists and a qualified nurse. 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.

Extra Care Suites

We offer specialist care in our ‘extra care’ suites for those who have a higher level of needs.  This helps bridges the gap between residential and nursing care.  It suits residents living with a wide range of conditions who might otherwise feel lost in a larger home or find a busy environment overwhelming.  The Butterfly Wing and the Dragonfly Suite focus on those living with dementia and the Bluebell Wing focuses those who are physically frail and have limited mobility.

They all consist of six or seven apartments as well as their own lounges and dining room (in addition, as it is located on the ground floor, the Butterfly Suite and Dragonfly Suite have their own gardens).  They have their own dedicated team of experienced staff which offers familiarity and continuity giving extra reassurance and comfort to its residents.  Residents can help with familiar tasks such as watering flowers, feeding birds, making a bed or preparing a table for a meal which helps them to feel part of this small family community.  Activities are always one to one and include music therapy, cookery, massage and gentle exercise (and there is always the opportunity to join in with the activities in the main home).

Respite care

We offer respite care from as little as one night.

Care for couples

We offer care for couples, with a number of double rooms available. We have also found some couples may wish to have their own separate rooms to accommodate varying needs, but who still happily share their days together.

Bariatric care

One apartment has been fully adapted for specialist bariatric care. This suite has the space and equipment to ensure those living with obesity have the same dignity in care.

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.
