Meaningful lifestyles

Living at Deewater Grange in Chester is all about choice, freedom and flexibility. Our lifestyle team plan a range of activities every day, from quizzes and baking to arts and crafts to film afternoons and music sessions.

Group activities aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so we always make time for your loved one one-to-one, whether they fancy a pamper session in the hair salon, a stroll in the garden, or a shopping trip. Your loved one will be free to choose what they’d like to do. Of course, if they’re happy having some time to themselves in their room, or reading the paper in one of the lounges, that’s fine too.

Our lifestyle team

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.

Wishing trees

Residents still have goals and wishes they want to achieve. That's why our home has a wishing tree where residents can hang their written wishes of the things they’d like to do, and we do our best to make these happen. Earlier in the year Sally at 85 taking on the longest and fastest zipline in Europe! Recently June's dream of feeding a Giraffe came true at Chester Zoo.

FAQs

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.

FAQs

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.

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.

Find out more about our dining promise.

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.

There are no restrictions on visiting your loved one, but please be considerate of other residents if you are feeling unwell or if you are visiting during mealtimes or late night/early morning. 

We recognise the importance of inviting visitors into our care homes to help maintain relationships with family and friends and develop and sustain a positive quality of life. 

We are committed to the same visiting rights being applied within all of our care homes in England, Scotland and Wales, and will restrict visiting only when given a direct instruction to do so by the Government, Regulatory body, a National NHS body or the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).
