We seek to meet physical needs and frailty as they advance with ongoing nursing care. Most of all we ensure that each resident is treated with the dignity and respect that we all deserve.

Dedicated dementia care

We are one of the pioneers of person-centred specialist dementia care in the UK. Our first specialist dementia care home opened in 1989 and since then we have continued to develop our approach in our care homes and retirement apartments across the UK.

Our specialist dementia care recognises each person as a unique individual. At Herondale & Kingfisher House, our caring, professional and fully-trained carers, provide the highest quality care to preserve dignity, treat people with respect and promote independence.

Everyone with dementia is different. That's why a person-centred approach is key: at Herondale & Kingfisher House, we take time to get to know each individual’s history, personality and preferences, and find ways to make every day fulfilling.

Our dementia area at Herondale & Kingfisher House is designed and decorated to be safe for you, and also as familiar, reassuring and as easy to navigate as possible. The dementia floor is secured by keypad coding to ensure that you are safe and secure at all times.

We provide ‘show and tell’ at mealtimes where you are visually presented with the two meals on the menu so you can select which one you would like. Other options are also available if you would like an alternative.

We have a dementia secure garden with sensory plants and ornaments. The dementia floor is at ground level and you can visit the garden at any time.

Food and drink

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.
