Our Building and Facilities

Sanctuary Care’s newest home in Oxfordshire, Iffley has some really wonderful features. Located on the dementia floor, the vintage café is a really popular spot for our residents to meet loved ones when they visit. With shabby chic prints and memorabilia from years gone by, it's the perfect place to enjoy a hot drink and a slice of homemade cake.

Another place residents can pop to with ease is the home’s hairdressing salon. A stylist from Iffley visits every Tuesday for sets, trims and even head massages. Our residents are pampered and made to feel extra special.

For those who love the big screen there is a cinema room in the heart of the residential and nursing home. The residents enjoy modern titles and all the classics, and the team organises regular blockbuster nights.

And for those who enjoy the great outdoors, the home’s tranquil grounds are a fantastic place to relax. There are raised flower beds, which enable our green-fingered residents, including those in wheelchairs, to continue enjoying a much-loved hobby with ease. There is also a courtyard area, with a water feature, trellised area, seating and barbecue.

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.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Activities Are So Important

When you walk into the home, the environment is clearly beautiful, but we think it's our person-centred activities that make us special. The team prides themselves on providing activities that are as wonderfully unique as our residents.

We also consider their care needs to ensure they get the best out of every experience. Whether enjoying a relaxing Namaste hand massage, baking, or singing along to their favourite song with a member of the team, there is something for everyone.

Iffley has its own care home choir. Made up of staff, residents and those closest to them, it has proved to be a wonderfully inclusive activity that everyone can enjoy. The positive impact it’s had, particularly for our residents living with dementia has been phenomenal. Even if a resident cannot remember the title of a particular song, the wonderful feeling they get from singing at the tops of their voices stay with them long after the music has stopped playing.

The home also hosts animal therapy sessions, a knit and natter group, exercise club and so much more. We also invite entertainers from across Iffley and Oxfordshire to perform music for our residents.

Iffley has its own minibus to make sure the team can support residents to remain active members of their local community. They enjoy visiting museums, garden centres and local pubs in and around Oxford. And in the summer, we take a trip to the coast to enjoy ice-cream or fish and chips by the sea.
