Meet The Manager

Rebecca Archer is Care Home Manager at Furzehatt Residential and Nursing Home.

Furzehatt has made its mark in the local community as being a home of choice for many. We take pride in the fact that we offer such a wide range of care, as well as alternative therapies.

Residents can continue to call Furzehatt their home, even if their needs change. If they arrive for residential care and over time require nursing care or develop dementia, there is an experienced team of carers and nurses here to support them. The home also provides palliative care and rehabilitation following strokes or support before and after operations.

Furzehatt is the only care home to be part of the Plymouth Dementia Action Alliance. The PDAA was set up by dementia champion Ian Sherriff, who was recently awarded a British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. The group drives forward ideas to make Plymouth a dementia friendly city. In the summer Japanese ambassadors joined us at Furzehatt, so they could take ideas for best practice relating to dementia care back to Japan.

While other homes offer respite care, Furzehatt is the only residential and nursing home in Plymstock and indeed the wider Plymouth area where this can be pre-booked up to six months in advance. This gives carers looking after loved ones at home the chance to take a well-deserved holiday or simply have some ‘me time’.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Sanctuary Care we recognise meal times have always been a focus for residents in our homes which is why we invest in fantastic chefs and catering staff who can deliver delicious, nutritious menus and create an enjoyable dining experience for our residents. Some of our residents enjoy getting involved in the preparation and serving of food! You can read more about this in our case studies.

Cooked or continental? Sandwiches or hot food? The choice is yours with residents being involved in creating seasonal nutritional menus from old favourites to trying something new…there’s also always freshly baked cakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Midnight snack? No problem, refreshments are available to residents throughout the day and evening if they get a little peckish.

We encourage meal-times where residents can eat together and socialise in a relaxing environment but understand that residents may wish to enjoy food when they and where choose to have it.

Our trained staff understand the importance of eating well and staying hydrated and supporting residents living with dementia to enjoy food in their environment – making food more visible through coloured crockery and more appealing whether it's pureed, finger foods or moulded.

Activities Are So Important

Activities are at the heart of the home. The Plymouth Tea Dance regularly comes to us here in Plymstock. Whether the Cha Cha Cha or Lindy Hop, these sessions are inclusive for all the residents, regardless of their nursing or dementia care needs.

Youngsters from Plymouth Dance regularly give special performances, teaching the residents moves that they can do in their armchairs. A group run by Livewell South West regularly runs boccia sessions for the home, including carpet boules and skittles.

Animal lovers in this residential and nursing home benefit from monthly visits from guinea pigs, hamsters and even lizards. The home also has its own cat called Mario!

For musical lovers, we have just launched our own choir. We are by no means tone perfect, but there is always a superb atmosphere when the lyrics of On a Bicycle Built for Two and Bring Me Sunshine fill the home.

Residents at Furzehatt are directly involved in how the home is run – they even sit on the interview panel when new staff are recruited.

Friends and family are also embraced here. There is a ‘cake of the day’ where visitors can help themselves to a slice or two of freshly baked sweet treats to enjoy during their visit.


Activities At Home
Music, Singing, Gardening, Crafts, Board Games, Choir, Animal Petting, Dancing, Visiting Entertainment.
