Welcome to Stanley Park

Stanley Park is a welcoming, purpose-built care home and our skilled and caring team provides a full range of care services for older people, including short-term and permanent residential care, as well as nursing and dementia care. We also deliver sensitive end of life care.

Our home is light and airy, and has en-suite facilities, stylish furniture, and 24-hour nurse call system. Many rooms overlook the gardens, and those on the ground floor have doors which open onto our landscaped gardens.

Residents tell us the sort of home they want here, and we make it happen. We have a pub which is the hub of the home and used for everything from quizzes to karaoke.

We pride ourselves on the transparency of our care quality and fee information - ensuring you can trust us to care from that very first step.

We are working very hard to ensure that the service we provide is of the highest quality. We are aware that CQC have highlighted we need to make improvements to our service, we have a comprehensive service improvement plan in place to ensure we are acting to make changes that will be sustained and embedded. Much progress has already been made and it was reassuring to read that the inspectors found that the team care for people safely, with a kind and caring approach. Please ask the home manager if you wish to discuss the contents of our service improvement plan.
