Our home is set across three floors, and there are two communal lounges and dining rooms on each floor, as well as a quiet lounge, conservatory and ample outdoor space, meaning peace and tranquillity is never far away. Our beautiful bedrooms are all furnished with your comfort in mind. Across our three floors we have two communal lounges, dining rooms, a quiet lounge and a conservatory . We also have a wonderful landscaped garden, which can be viewed and accessed from many of the bedrooms as well as a patio which is perfect for fresh air and outdoor activities.
Relax, socialise, get involved
Whether you’re entertaining your family and friends, spending time with other residents or taking part in activities, our living rooms are ideal. It’s always up to you whether you want to get involved with activities – you’re more than welcome to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
There are two large communal lounges – one in each unit – and a quiet lounge and conservatory for residents to enjoy.
Our communal lounge spaces are very popular with the residents and they’re where a lot of the socialising in the home takes place, as well as in the dining rooms. And our activities often get residents talking about their lives and experiences in a fun, relaxed setting.
How can residents spend private time with their relatives?
With so many different communal spaces, it’s not hard to find some peace and quiet at Houndswood House. You’re also free to use any of the home or gardens, or your own room, to meet with your visitors. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you can reserve an area to entertain your guests.
Are residents free to come and go around the home as they please?
Of course. This is your home and all the communal areas are here for you to enjoy. If you’d rather spend the day in your room, that’s your choice too.
Admire the outdoors
Houndswood House is surrounded by a lovely garden, ideal for a relaxing stroll or sitting out in the sunshine. We also have raised beds which some of our residents enjoy tending to.
There is also a patio with outdoor seating where we regularly serve afternoon tea, and meals when the weather is fine. In the summer we hold many activities outdoors, including garden parties and barbeques.
Can residents do their own gardening?
While many of our residents are happy to sit back and enjoy the garden and the wildlife, some of our more green-fingered residents love to get stuck in. We encourage them to plant flowers and vegetables for all the residents and staff to enjoy. And our raised beds mean that wheelchair users are also able to join in with the gardening.
