Enjoy expert care and daily activities in bright, safe and clean surroundings
We are dedicated to ensuring residents continue to enjoy each day and spend it how they wish. Our experienced lifestyle teams take the time to get to know everything about your loved one, so that we can make every aspect of their time with us meaningful.
We understand that maintaining routines and a sense of purpose is vital for an older person’s wellbeing. That's why we support your loved one to live as independently as possible, from making their own drinks, helping with the washing up, or even taking on a role in the home like leading a dance class or helping the maintenance team. If your loved one visits local places of worship, or attends a group in the community, we’ll support them to continue to do this. We use positive risk-taking to promote freedom and choice.
At Care UK , as part of our person-centred approach to care, we put you and your loved one at the heart of everything we do. Our dedicated team take the time to get to know each resident and create tailored care and lifestyle plans to suit them. Your loved one will have a life history book where we record their hobbies, family and friends, jobs, routines, holidays – even their favourite foods – all of which forms the basis of their care.Read more
When it comes to activities the sky is the limit! Our home has a different and ever-changing programme of activities including pub quizzes, afternoon teas, wine and cheese evenings, themed days, fundraising and even intergenerational activities!

Our dedicated lifestyle teams organise activities, entertainment, outings and experiences tailored to your loved one’s interests and hobbies. We also understand that group activities aren’t for everyone so we will spend one to one time with your loved one if that's what they'd prefer.
We’ve brought together many of the questions that families often ask us and our friendly team can answer anything else you might need to know.
We get to know your loved one’s personality and hobbies to support them to enjoy a meaningful lifestyle, with experiences and activities that reflect their interests. Each of our homes run a range of daily group and one-to-one activities, ranging from gentle exercise to music sessions, arts and crafts, gardening and visits from local entertainers. We also take trips out to local shops, garden centres and other places of interest.
All Care UK homes offer different options because their residents are different. We even have homes where residents lead the classes, prepare the vegetables for meals, or run the in-home shop. We promise to support your loved one to be as involved and as busy as they want to be.
Find out more about life in our homes.
The majority of our homes provide en-suite facilities. If you have any questions please call us - we’ll be happy to help.
The majority of our homes have lovely secure gardens that are wheelchair friendly, and residents can access them whenever they wish. They’re welcome to help with gardening, re-stock bird tables and feeders, take a stroll, or simply sit and enjoy the sunshine. To support residents who are living with dementia, we use many plants chosen for their sensory properties of scent, texture and colour.
As we get older our appetites do change, and people who are living with conditions such as dementia or dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) might need enhanced support to ensure they’re eating and drinking enough. Helping residents to dine with dignity, whatever their needs, is one of our key priorities. Many of our homes have chef-led catering teams that produce delicious and nutritious meals made from the freshest ingredients.

The majority of our homes provide en-suite facilities, and residents have their own flatscreen TV, phone and internet connections in their rooms. Many of our homes, particularly our new-build homes, have ground floor bedrooms with doors that open out onto secure, landscaped gardens. Residents in these rooms even have their own small patio areas with seating and pot plants. We believe in helping residents to continue enjoying a superb lifestyle, with a range of daily activities tailored around their interests and preferences.
We understand that having help with bathing and toileting when you’ve been used to looking after yourself can be embarrassing and frustrating. Each resident has a key worker (a main carer) who will support them in this area to minimise embarrassment. Having en-suite facilities also helps to maximise comfort and privacy.
Our staff are discreet, highly trained and dedicated to supporting your loved one with dignity. Our homes have assisted bathing facilities if a resident’s physical needs are such that they need intensive support. However, where a resident is able to do even the basics for themselves, we’ll always support them to maximise their independence.
While we don’t offer specific flats or suites for couples in our homes, we do believe in tailoring our care to suit the needs of residents. If both people require residential or nursing care, we can organise next door, or even adjoining, rooms.
We’re enjoying a return to in-person visits and activities in our homes.
Relatives and friends can now visit without pre-booking, with no requirement to complete a health screening form, take a Lateral Flow Test or to wear a mask. Our experts continue to monitor guidance from English, Scottish, Welsh and regional health protection teams to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep residents and our colleagues as safe as possible.
