Facilities

Francis Court is a three-storey facility specially designed to cater for elderly residents with a huge variety of needs. Large bay windows throughout the home let in plenty of light and provide a glorious view of the gardens and surrounding area.

The Garden

One of the key features of Francis Court care home is our beautiful garden space which features a fish pond. The garden is a great place for residents and visitors to relax on the patio, enjoy a stroll on our wide lawn or help tend to the flowers. We frequently hold special community activities in the garden, from fetes and fundraisers to visits from the local schools.

Listening to you

Over the past few months, we’ve been chatting to residents’ families to find out if there are ways we can make your visits even more enjoyable. Many of you have said you’d like a space of your own in the home, a place where you can relax and make yourself a drink in your own kitchen area.

So in response to your suggestions we’ve created a Friends and Family room at the home. This special space is solely for the use and comfort of residents’ visitors and you’re free to make it your own and to use it however and whenever you like.

Respite Care

In addition to long-term residence, Francis Court also offers a respite care package. If you’re a full-time carer from home and need a holiday or some time away, we can offer top quality temporary care to allow you total peace of mind while you’re gone. Please contact the home for more details about this service.
