A modern, purpose-built home for up to 40 residents, life at Amathea Care Home reflects the importance to MHA of quality and choice for older people.

Staff members take the time and care to get to know residents as individuals, talking to them and their families about their likes and dislikes and personal backgrounds and stories, in order to be able to provide the person-centred care that lies at the heart of MHA’s values.

With links to the local Alzheimer’s club and mobile library, Amathea works hard to enable older people, including those with dementia, to express themselves and enjoy the world around them.

Private single rooms with en suite facilities ensure that all residents have privacy and comfort, while the home’s lounges and landscaped garden offer sociable and safe spaces to enjoy the company of others.

Here, too, we are committed to providing alternative therapies such as reflexology and music therapy as ways of enhancing personal well-being, while a wide range of activities, visits and events are always on offer for you to take part in if you wish.

“When I walked into Amathea without an appointment and saw how well run it was, I looked no further.” This comment, made by a relative to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), suggests not only the professionalism of Amathea’s staff but also the welcome sense of home and community that anyone living here can expect.

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.
