Location and contact details
Fosse House in St. Albans - part of the Quantum Care group - is a modern building in an attractive landscaped garden, featuring a fish pond, aviary and fruit trees. Close to a small parade of shops and a supermarket, we have the facilities to cater for 81 older people with a variety of health needs including dementia.
The home is accredited by Hertfordshire County Council to provide specialist dementia care, and has to undergo a rigorous annual evaluation process in order to achieve that status.
Each independent living area (run by a Care Team Manager and dedicated care staff) has a spacious lounge, as well as a dining room and assisted bath and shower room. All the rooms have en-suite facilities and a TV and phone socket.
Our catering staff provide nutritious meals and cater for special diets. There is always a choice of dishes, and residents are involved in designing menus where possible.
Our on-site day service offers a full programme of activities to people from the local community and we also have an comprehensive programme for our residents.
One of the core values of Quantum Care is that each and every employee is important and that is why we are committed to ensuring that all our staff have the professional skills and confidence to make the most of their role and to provide the best possible service to our clients. That’s why we’ve enjoyed Investor in People status since 2001 and place such a strong focus on training and development.
In additional to the residential services, we also offer short breaks and enablement services which are designed to provide the help and support people need to stay in their own homes for longer.
If you are interested in any of the services please feel free to ring the home directly. For further information, please see the Quantum Care website www.quantumcare.co.uk
