Residential nursing care
We offer full residential nursing care for those with advanced dementia. Our services are delivered in specialist nursing homes, some of which have been purpose-built for people with dementia.
We receive excellent feedback from relatives and clients, and we aim to be at the cutting edge of dementia care.
We have been working with Dementia Care Matters over the last two years on the 'Butterfly Project', designed to make the interior of our homes a more stimulating and interactive environment.
The Butterfly Project has involved getting rid of uniforms for staff to avoid an institutional feel and building installations such as an old-fashioned sweetshop and nostagic pub inside Humphry Repton House.
Our residential nursing is delivered primarily at Humphry Repton House, the Bristol Dementia Care Centre, a 45-bed purpose-built home in Brentry.
In 2011, HRH The Earl of Wessex formally opened our brand-new nursing home, Mortimer House, which is designed specifically for people who have both dementia and a learning disability.
This is a purpose built nursing home which is light and airy with plenty of space to enable people to move about freely and access the beautiful gardens.
Care is tailor-made to your needs with lots of opportunities for people to retain their previous skills and hobbies. Two activity coordinators work across the nursing home.
Humphry Repton House is particularly skilled in supporting people at the end of their life and is well-known for its hospice-like approach to the care required.
Mortimer House is a modern purpose-built home for older people with a learning disability and or dementia.
The assistive technology built within the home allows people to remain independent, as does the spacious areas within the homes.
Each bedroom has an ensuite shower and wet room with tracking overhead hoisting, which means that if people become physically disabled they will not have to move bedrooms.
