WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THIS CARE HOME IN MELKSHAM

Proud to be ‘Good’ by the CQC

Not all care homes are the same. We focus on residents’ wellbeing and that starts with peace of mind and an exceptional care and nursing team.

  • All-inclusive Living: We talk about it a lot and that’s because it matters a great deal to our residents and their families. They know they can plan ahead, knowing there won’t be any surprises. To be able to invite friends and family over for celebrations, or pop out in the Mercedes at no extra cost really is the icing on the cake. Read more about our fantastic all-inclusive service here.
  • Exceptional team of carers: We look after our staff very well, not only because the work they do is incredibly important to our residents and wider society, but because they look after our residents. The more united the family of carers, the lower the turnover of team members and reliance on agency staff. All of this combines to produce a very happy home indeed. Don’t just take our word for it though, read our reviews.

COVID-19 SAFE CARE PODS AND ELECTRONIC CARE PLANS

Embracing technology for better care

We are always looking to evolve the way in which we deliver great quality care, but not just for the sake of it. It has to provide tangible benefits and not take away from the human element of what we do. Here are some of the ways we are embracing the digital world to help our care home.

Connecting residents with their families

COMMUNICATIONS

Connecting residents with their families

From group-wide Zoom quiz, to virtual reality game time, at Blenheim House we’re always looking for new ways to communicate and bring our residents closer together and to their friends and families. Each floor at the home has iPads used for FaceTime and WhatsApp and Skype to keep in touch.

Covid-safe Care Lodge

COVID-SAFE CARE POD

As we all know, 2020 brought about unprecedented social restrictions. We have addressed this with our state-of-the-art care pod – a garden room which enables residents to meet and see their families in person while remaining safe. Find out more here.

Providing better care through technology

IN-ROOM TECHNOLOGY

Providing better care through technology
