Nestled in Bishop’s Castle, a town situated in beautiful South Shropshire, Stone House offers residential accommodation for 40 older people with or without dementia.

Stone House offers an interesting programme of daily activities for those who wish to take part and restful lounges for those who wish to read or chat.

The safe and accessible gardens are a joy to sit in and enjoy the tranquility.

Our food is freshly cooked in our own kitchen where the Catering Manager has been awarded the Platinum Healthy Eating Award.

We do not offer nursing care at Stone House but we have regular visits from the district nurses, local chiropodist, optician, dentist, physiotherapist and occupational therapist, enabling us to meet the needs of our service users.

Stone House has adopted the butterfly approach for people with dementia which uses everyday tasks to stimulate the mind, this technique can improve mobility, help with sleep patterns and can help with the reduction of medication

  We also have an excellent service from the local Doctors’ Surgeries; ShropDoc will cover all emergency needs.
