Meet The Manager

Sheela Nirmal is General Manager at Newton House.

Newton House care home provides high quality 24-hour nursing and residential care, alongside expert care for people living with dementia in our Memory Lane Community. We also offer respite care or short breaks, which can now pre-booked up to a year in advance.

Newton House has four communities in total, two of which cater for the needs of elderly frail people, and two for people living with dementia. We also support both nursing and residential residents. We tailor all care towards the individual needs of each person, putting residents at the centre of our care. Our aim is to maintain and encourage skills and we work with the philosophy of what the resident can do and support them in the areas of their life where they are experiencing difficulty.

In our Memory Lane communities, we hold the mentality that it is us who cannot understand what the resident is trying to communicate, and we believe that we have to find a way to change that. Our staff on Memory Lane have had specialised training to ensure that they can reduce the distress and frustration that a person living with dementia may experience on a regular basis. We also realise the stress that this can put on the family, so we aim to support loved ones through the dementia journey as well.

Activities Are So Important

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!
