Discover our happy and social home, where there’s plenty to do and new friends to make.
At Asterbury Place, we take the same tailored approach to your loved one’s lifestyle as we do their care. Once we understand what they like to do, or the things they’ve never tried but are keen to have a go at, we plan activities to suit them. Singalongs, dancing, a sculpture class – these are just some of the things we get up to at Asterbury Place.
Residents are encouraged to mix within small and socially distanced groups within the home and garden, where they are free to simply relax, or take part in the varied lifestyle programme. Being such a social home means that new residents quickly make friends. Our CQC report says: ‘We observed that people had formed friendships with each other and were enjoying social opportunities within the home’.
A tailored, flexible approach to living
Asterbury Place has a café and hair and beauty salon, as well as a cinema. On warmer days, our secure landscaped gardens are a lovely place for a stroll or to sit and enjoy the sunshine. Residents run their own clubs such as a gardening club and woodworking club to get involved in.
We are uncompromising on safety and have stringent clinical protocols, including the use of PPE by our highly trained team. We also ensure all high traffic areas in the home are disinfected on a regular basis
Some of our residents are living with dementia and like to explore the home under their own steam. We’ve therefore adapted the home to meet residents’ needs and requests, adding pictures along a corridor that look like open windows on to lovely landscapes with birds and window boxes.
There’s a vintage-style nursery and playroom themed area to remind residents of being young and of when their own children were small. It all helps the people we care for to enjoy meaningful experiences and to live in the moment.
Listening to feedback
Residents are actively involved in the running of Asterbury Place. We have two resident representatives who take part in new colleague interviews and ensure that residents’ wishes are factored into decisions. There are regular surveys and meetings, as well as a bright ideas box, to capture residents’ feedback.
