Camilla House Nursing Home provides residential, nursing and dementia care for older people, as well as palliative and respite care. We are committed to maximising the personal choice and independence of everyone who stays with us.
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.
We encourage people to become involved with the running of the home and developing activities and events. Residents can choose to be involved in regular social activities including bingo, live music, singing, reminiscence sessions, exercise classes and alternative therapies. We also have regular visits from local churches.
Our experienced and qualified nursing staff are supported by a team of care assistants selected for their skills and experience in providing nursing, residential and dementia care.
Meals are an important part of the day at Camilla House. Our experienced catering staff 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.
