Care Home Rating & Reviews

While coming to visit my relative, I was very happy to see the way the home was run. Very friendly all staff, domestic and carers was a pleasure to visit and see how much the residents were treated and taken care of. Carry on the good work.

Jean P

(Relative of Resident)

I would thoroughly recommend Brackenbridge House to others. I have found the carers, management to be caring, helpful and cheerful at all times. Any niggly issues have been resolved quickly. The care home has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, particularly the communal lounge. My brother is happy with the care here.

Christina C

(Sister of Resident)

Pleasant staff, always around, day room and kitchen. Communicative, kind, considerate very caring. The food is well prepared, presentable and plenty of it for dietary needs. Security very good well maintained at all hours. Excellent choice of a residential home for any service users in need, they are never left alone.

(Friend of Resident)

The home has significantly improved since the new manager and deputy manager have taken over. The care my mum has received has been excellent and they have been really accommodating during lockdown with calls and Facetime calls.

(Daughter of Resident)

Dad has settled in well. He is very complimentary of the care he receives and says he feels safe and comfortable. I have great peace of mind and am confident he is being cared for. He loves the activities and the company of the other residents.

    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.

  • Dining

    Dining

    Residents are encouraged to eat and enjoy their meals in social dining areas, and every meal we produce incorporates individual dietary needs as laid out in their care plan. It’s a cornerstone of our care policy and key to our person-centred approach.
