Care Home Rating & Reviews

My late wife stayed in the Acton Care Home from the end of April 2018 until 21 September 2018 on which day she died there. In that time my wife was looked after in an excellent manner. All the nurses who cared for my wife were excellent, very professional and also very warm and friendly. My wife’s dignity was totally respected. I cannot thank enough all the staff at Acton Care Home. They deserve a 5-star recommendation.

My friend is staying in Acton Care Centre and every Wednesday we go to church. The patient coordinator is fantastic, there isn’t a better person for the job. She is so kind, loving and generous with her time with the patients. She is a true asset to your business.

(Friend of resident)

Everyone is very welcoming and professional, providing care and attention throughout the day. There is plenty of space outdoors which is very nicely maintained. My grandmother has enjoyed all of the one-to-one care and attention she’s receiving.

(Grandson of Resident)

My mother was a resident at Acton Care Centre for five years. The staff were very kind and caring, always listening to any concerns I had about my mother, they always treated her with dignity and kindness. They were also very supportive of me and extremely kind. Even as my mother’s Alzheimer’s became worse, they still included her in all the activities, which she had enjoyed before. I cannot praise all the staff highly enough, they were all friendly and kind and knew all the residents so well. They became like my extended family and my mother was very happy.

Acton Care Centre does exactly what it says, it cares. My mother could not have been looked after better. The staff were always kind, attentive, and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the reception is always welcoming.

    Meaningful and fulfilling activities

    At every stage in life, maintaining your physical and mental health is important. We believe the key to this is to keep your mind, body, and soul stimulated and engaged every day, and this is a fundamental element of how we operate our homes.
    In every home in our group, we have a dedicated activities coordinator who, in conjunction with the wishes of the residents, creates a varied program of activities and celebrations. We encourage everyone to participate and join in the fun and comradery that these events can bring. We like to welcome new residents to our activity programme by incorporating their favourite activities, expanding our selection for all the community to enjoy. Designed to engage our residents both physically and mentally, our activity programmes are also a source of great fun and help residents to live life to the fullest.
    Most activities take place indoors. However, when the weather permits, we take maximum advantage of our lovely outdoor patio areas and adjoining gardens and also arrange local and national trips.

     

    No barriers to activity

    For every resident, in every setting, be it residential, nursing, or those living with dementia, everyone receives support to be mentally and physically active to enhance their experience while they are staying us. We recognise that independent activity, hobbies, and day-to-day tasks boost an individuals’ self-confidence. We appreciate individual needs and understand their capabilities as part of our person-centred care, as a result; we can be the support they need at the time that they need it.

    Dedicated Activity Coordinators

    Our Activity Coordinators establish activities that our residents enjoy at a frequency that maintains engagement. Some are scheduled so that a routine can be established, and others are organised and promoted so that our residents can look forward to a special occasion together. The coordinators will also discover what additional events and activities each resident would like to see and, where feasible, incorporate those ideas into something that all residents can participate in. Residents’ birthdays and special milestones are also celebrated together.
    We support our residents to maintain an active, healthy life within the home and the local community by having strong links with local groups. These relationships are designed to promote socialisation, mobility, interaction, independence, and self-confidence and to positively influence their health and well-being.

     

    Activities for Residents living with dementia

    For residents who live with dementia or require support with their mental health, speech therapies are just one way in which we can provide assistance. Other mediums such as touch, sense, colours, music, animal interaction, and activities that encourage reminiscence memory can stimulate mental agility and provide positive outcomes for our residents.
