Testing & Vaccination

Residents are tested regularly and have been offered their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with many also having received their second dose. Any new residents will be tested on admission and be supported during a 14-day period of self-isolation to protect themselves and others.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We have good stock levels of approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which is worn by all our staff and any necessary visitors to the care home.

Keeping in touch

We’re doing everything we can to stay in touch with residents’ family and loved ones, updating them on the current situation and any changes to visiting through online updates, remotely organised meetings and letters.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

We offer care and comfort, compassion and friendship at our care home in Chippenham. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

We have the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

We encourage our residents to furnish their own rooms as they wish. This could be as simple as hanging a couple of their favourite pictures on the wall, but you are also welcome to bring your own comfy chair, or anything that makes you feel at home. The most important thing is for everyone to feel comfortable, happy and settled.

All bedrooms have an en suite wet room with toilet and sink. Some rooms also enjoy lovely garden views, and there’s WiFi throughout the home.

Residential care

Our residential care is all about providing a special kind of home from home. It’s our way of making sure your loved one continues to live life to its fullest and remains as independent as possible. It means they can get out and about when they want to, catch up with friends or pop to the shops, but with the added security and peace of mind that comes from knowing 24-hour support is available if they need it.

Our team are on hand to offer just the right amount of care, giving those who need it support with activities such as bathing, dressing and mealtimes. Without having to worry about cooking meals, washing clothes or getting the hoover out, you’ll see your loved one truly enjoying life and exploring their full potential.

Residential dementia care

We’re proud to be recognised for our pioneering approach to dementia care, which is carefully built around each individual. Our dementia care facilities here are second to none, and specially designed to provide a reassuringly familiar, engaging and warm environment for those living with us. We have dementia friendly decor and bedroom doors have memory boxes to assist your loved one to find their room.

Residents enjoy music therapy and reminiscence activities designed to stimulate social interaction and alleviate the feeling of isolation associated with dementia. We’ve recently introduced an interactive magic table. This motion-activated sensory projection offers a different kind of fun, helping to stimulate, engage and relax the mind.

Food and drink

Mealtimes are an important part of the day here, giving our residents the opportunity to get together and enjoy freshly prepared food in a relaxed restaurant-style environment. We always offer two meal options and our chefs will happily prepare something special if nothing on the menu appeals.

  • Freshly prepared meals, cooked by our in-house chef
  • All dietary and religious needs catered for
  • Locally sourced meats, fruit and vegetables where possible
  • Seasonal ingredients – menus change three times a year with input from residents
  • Specialist equipment and assistance as needed
  • Snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day
  • Home baking every day
  • Relatives welcome to join residents for meals
