Everything about life here is about supporting residents to keep active and independent.
Our lifestyle coordinators plan daily activities around the interests and abilities of residents, and we offer a unique mix of options. This includes anything from quizzes and exercise classes, to gardening, baking, sing-alongs, tea dances and film afternoons.
Animals are always popular visitors to Care UK homes, and it’s the same at Buchanan Court. We welcome therapy animals to our home as well as any visitors who want to bring their dogs.
Music plays a big part in our days too and can have a hugely positive effect on the wellbeing of residents who are living with dementia. As well as inviting performers from the local area to entertain us, we regularly welcome local school children to come and sing and perform for us, or simply chat to residents and learn more about their lives.
Handy for visitors
Buchanan Court is located in a residential part of Harrow, only a few minutes from national rail and underground lines. We’re close to Harrow town centre and lots of bus services run past our door, making it easy for residents who are able, to get to and from the town.
You are welcome to visit your loved one whenever you wish, and stay for as long as you like. We don’t believe in having visiting hours, so you’re welcome to join in with activities, have a meal with your loved one – whatever you want to do. We’d love you to think of this as your home from home.
Time to dine
Each of the home’s four floors is divided into two suites, with a bistro-style dining area and comfortable lounge linking the two wings. We believe in the importance of helping residents to continue enjoying good food: our chef-led catering team serve up delicious and nutritious meals every day, all made from fresh ingredients and all tailored to residents’ unique tastes, diets and cultural needs.
Appetites change as we get older, and residents may find they’re peckish at different times of the day. We’re happy to serve a meal at a time that suits a resident. There are also drinks, snacks and treats available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We love to find ways to make your loved one feel special and bring a smile to their face. We’ll always celebrate their birthday and other anniversaries in style, and take advantage of national days and events to have some fun and enjoy good food. Whether it’s trying some new foods for Chinese New Year, getting patriotic on St George’s Day, or opening our doors to the community for a barbecue on Care Home Open Day, there’s always something to look forward to.
