Avon Park Care Home provides care and support for both adults and older people with dementia, early onset dementia, acquired brain injuries and neurological disorders.
We offer the highest standard of care and support people to maintain their independence and control over their lives.
We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those enjoyed at home. We encourage regular interaction with the local community, including contact with friends, family and local groups. We encourage friends and family to be involved through regular visits and participation at special activities, events and open days.
The activities offered are very much based on the individual person’s choice and interests. We offer a variety of social and therapeutic activities that people can choose to become involved in, including visiting garden centres, attending football matches and concerts. We often have outside entertainers perform at the home.
Other facilities include a visiting hairdresser, a pampering service and podiatry. Visits can also be arranged from opticians, physiotherapists and dentists. Religious services are available within the home and trips to the local church can be arranged.
Meals are an important part of the day at Avon Park. Our expert catering team prepare a varied menu of fresh home cooked food every day and we cater for individual likes and dislikes from a cultural, religious or choice perspective.
Our friendly and experienced team of nurses, carers and domestic staff provide tailored care 24 hours a day and are supported by an experienced manager.
