While all of our care homes are very different – we also recognise they have something very important in common – they are people’s homes, and we take this responsibility very seriously. 

Therefore, across our homes, we focus on creating welcoming spaces where people choose to spend their time because they enjoy being there, surrounded by kind-hearted team members who support them to live a happy life, despite their illnesses, conditions and challenges they may face. 

From the new homes we design and build and the ones we carefully select to buy from other companies, to the décor and furnishings and our ongoing investment, we have more than 30 years’ experience in nurturing environments to support our wonderful teams to be the best they can be. 

Excelcare-Wellbeing-Environment-Inside-Image.jpgAll of our homes are designed to provide a relaxing and safe environment for those who live there, whilst many of them have a variety of areas in which to choose to spend time. 

Lifts can be located in all of our homes with more than one floor, enabling people with mobility needs to utilise the whole home and beautiful gardens – many of which are designed to be secure to enable people to take a stroll independently even if they require a more secure place to live. 

Within our care suites, which specifically support people living with dementia, to complement the different areas on offer, we reinforce the room’s function with clear, carefully selected pictorial signage and interactive decorations. This can encourage independence and comfort as people are able to better orientate around the suite without the need for direction from a team member.

Within many of our homes, there are lovely seating areas throughout the corridors for people to take a rest, as well as reminiscence areas which can be freely enjoyed by individuals alone and as part of a 1-2-1 activity. These spaces help support memory recollection from life histories as well as providing engagement opportunities.

And whether it’s open plan living rooms and dining rooms, or more intimate communal spaces – there is an area for everyone to enjoy, irrespective of what they enjoy doing or how they want to spend their time.

We appreciate that critically, it is the atmosphere and feeling created by our dedicated teams and amazing individuals who live with us, that really makes a care home a home. 

However, we remain committed to continuing to provide buildings and environments which are welcoming, inviting and safe – supporting individuals’ quality of life and their on-going comfort and happiness.
