Our team takes time getting to know your loved one, finding out all about their experiences and interests.
Everything we learn about your loved one goes into their individual life story book. It helps us to understand their needs and to plan activities and outings that they’ll love. Our lifestyle team organises a weekly activity programme that includes sing-alongs, games, gentle exercise sessions, and visits from professional entertainers as well as therapy animals. In fact, we're very animal-friendly here at Station House, and many relatives, and even colleagues, bring their pets in to see residents.
Part of our community
Station House care home has strong ties with groups, charities and schools in the local area. We hold fundraising events and coffee mornings for charities, and there’s a multi-faith service at the home every Wednesday. We also have good links with many places of worship in the local area – so we can always invite representatives in to spend time with your loved one if that’s what they’d like.
Enjoying good food with friends
Enjoying delicious, chef-cooked meals made from fresh ingredients is a key part of living at Station House. We can cater for all tastes, diets and cultural requirements. Meal times are a chance to get together with friends and catch up with the day’s news. There’s always plenty of choice and if there’s nothing that takes your loved one’s fancy, we’ll be happy to cook something especially for them.
We use specially designed cutlery and crockery so that residents who are living with dementia or impaired mobility or eyesight can eat independently. However, we will always discreetly support anyone who needs our help, so that they get the nutrition they need.
Health and wellbeing
Your loved one’s health and wellbeing are our priority. We have strong links with a range of local healthcare professionals, so that your loved one receives seamless support from the right people. A GP comes to Station House every week, and a chiropodist visits once a fortnight. We can easily arrange any appointments that your loved one needs and accompany them if you’re not able to.
