Life at The Brambles
The home is decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard and whilst we offer modern features such as hoists and a lift, our aim is always to ensure that our residents feel at home, after all, no-one wants to live in a hotel.
For example, service users may choose to reside either in the cosy lounge, the quiet lounge or perhaps the conservatory. Both lounges are equipped with a television, video, DVD player and music facilities. We have bathing hoist equipment and a 5 person passenger lift to assist with independence.
We provide accommodation for both ladies and gentlemen in single and shared rooms. We have 29 single bedrooms and 3 double bedrooms. All bedrooms are spacious and comfortably furnished, with an attendant call system and the majority have en-suite facilities including showers.
Each bedroom has a personal phone line available as well as a television point. The bedrooms and en-suites are equipped with an emergency call system. The rooms are light and airy and service users are encouraged to personalise their rooms with small items of their own furniture, pictures and ornaments.
The dining room converts into a hobby and activities room for the various functions in which service users participation is encouraged.
Residents can choose to enjoy the social aspect of meal times by taking their meals in our comfortable dining room or in the privacy of their own rooms, if they so choose.
At the rear of the house, there are large landscaped gardens where residents can sit or enjoy a spot of gardening.
The garden is welcoming to both service users and their visitors. The garden has been designed to provide enjoyment for service users all year round. There is a patio and gazebo for personal enjoyment/fulfilment. The garden is well maintained to encourage service users to sit outside in the summer.
As well as large private areas, the home has a large lounge where residents can relax or meet with visitors. There is also a smaller lounge area and a rear conversatory for residents to enjoy more natural light. The accommodation we provide is designed to make our residents feel comfortable in their surroundings.
