Stone House

Nursing Care Home

A former residence of Lord Baden-Powell, Stone House nursing care home is a wonderful building on four acres of beautiful grounds. The House was built in 1862 and has since been sympathetically converted into a residential Nursing Home for 35 residents.

At Stone House yourself or your loved one, will receive around the clock nursing care, delivered by an extremely professional team of highly qualified nurses and carers. A tailor made and constantly evolving care plan, involving both family and friends and medical practitioners, allows us to offer very effective and well received assistance.

As a resident you need not be concerned, as every effort is made to preserve your dignity and self-respect and provide you with the choice you have always enjoyed in your life.

Beyond your obvious care needs, we will always strive to accommodate any other wishes or desires residents may have and we like to think we’re very good at it.

Accommodation

Ideal accommodation for your loved one

All bedrooms are newly furnished with residents’ preferences on décor always accommodated where practical. All bedrooms come equipped with electric beds, call bells, televisions, wireless internet, telephone facilities and walk in shower facilities in many.

Whilst all rooms are fully furnished, the Home does encourage residents to bring with them familiar pieces of furniture to make themselves feel at home.

Food & Drink

Dining at Stone House is designed to be a pleasure both socially and gastronomically. Our chef uses fresh produce, sourced locally from local farmers, butchers and fruit and vegetable suppliers. Our menus are designed to be nutritious but of course a product of what our residents tell us they most enjoy with plenty of choice always on offer. We have scored 5 stars with the “Scores on the Doors” scheme, a food hygiene rating of ‘Excellent’.

Activities

We take an interactive and holistic approach to activities, giving as much one to one stimulation as possible. Creative arts, games and reminiscence therapy are always very well received. Organising entertainment from lectures to singalongs and arranging visits to local places of interest keeps our full-time activities co-ordinator very busy.

Medical

A General Practitioner visits the Home weekly, although residents are welcome to retain their own G.P if they so wish. In collaboration with a local pharmacy and GP practice residents will have access to whatever prescriptive requirements they may have.

Personalised

The home provides other services including; Chiropody, Hairdressing, Optician, Audiology, physiotheraphy, concierge, chaffeur and function rooms. A multi denominational church service is held once a month and individual clergy are welcomed at any time.
