Location and contact details
Bentley House opened in January 2015. The team at Bentley House offers a warm welcome to all and is a care home like no other in the area. The Home is purpose built and offers exceptional accommodation, which is affordable but of a very high standard.
A typical one bedroom suite offers a bedroom and separate lounge and kitchen with a full en-suite wet room and is unique as it offers double the space of most care homes and is ideal for those wanting extra room or couples who want to stay together. They also have smaller studios for those who prefer something more cosy. Their rooms come unfurnished allowing residents to bring those special pieces of their home with them, something they find helps the settling in process significantly.
Life at Bentley House is all about making it feel like home. They have not one but two outstanding restaurants, the menu being dictated by current residents. They have a cinema which is in constant use and quite often by visiting grandchildren. They have a large activities team who provide trips out, visiting speakers, one to ones and activities which are again chosen by the resident committee.
Although Bentley House has outstanding facilities, the Home is all about the care it provides. Residents range from those who are relatively independent and still drive, to those who require respite, full nursing, dementia or end of life care and they pride themselves on providing discreet support in a place which is not institutional but as much like home as they can make it. Professionals believe it is how they care that sets them apart from other homes, Dignity, Encouraging Independence, Involving family and friends, are part of the fabric of the home and they hope that these values are echoed in the recommendations received.
