Our Building and Facilities

Ridgewood Court was opened in April 2018.

We have a beautifully finished home with some great design features that we hope will make our residents feel very at home and also enhance the quality of their time living here.

The residential care home has fantastic features, including an authentic cinema room decked out with luxury seating, soft lighting and movie memorabilia. At the end of each week, our residents enjoy Fizzy Fridays here, watching a film with popcorn a glass of fizz, or anything else which takes their fancy. They also love their monthly cheese and wine afternoons.

There is a hairdressing and beauty salon in our home, and our mobile hairdresser visits for appointments with our residents. This room is also used for pampering sessions, with treatments available for both ladies and gents.

Description

We pride ourselves on caring for our residents as though they were members of our own family. With this in mind our residential care homes are designed with all the usual comforts you would expect from home, creating a relaxing atmosphere with features such as cosy fireplaces and personalised bedrooms.

In partnership with our residents and their loved ones we create a bespoke care plan to build a picture of not only their health and wellbeing needs, but their emotional needs and who they are as an individual.

We tailor care and support to residents’ personal needs, so whether it’s something as simple as knowing they like a little extra sugar in their tea, to helping someone to rekindle a much-loved past time; we are there to help them to live life to the full.


The Importance Of Meal Times

Forget everything you think you might know about care home food (conjuring up images of school-like dinners and over-boiled vegetables!)

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.

Person centred care home dining

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.

Dining with Dignity

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.

Dietary Options

Activities Are So Important

Our home is often complimented for the wide variety of activities we offer and the connections with our local community. Every day, including at weekends, there is a dedicated activities leader on hand to support our residents and enrich their lives.

Ridgewood Court has close links with Pensby Community Association, whom we are holding a joint summer fete with in the home’s grounds. We are also well connected to the local primary school, the children of whom regularly come in to give us a sneak preview of special shows and performances. Our residents also attend a dementia tea dance at Heswell Hall. Every week there are regular armchair exercise sessions with a trainer from the local gym.

The team here offer Dementia Friends training for loved ones and friends, as well as people from the local community. Our own residents have even been known to talk about their own personal experience of dementia at these sessions which is very powerful.

One of our residents used to breed budgies before she moved into residential care, so we have created our very own aviary here so that she could continue her passion. We already have our own flock of Ridgewood Court budgies and have more on the way! Our residents also loved their weekly visits from Brambles the dog, who joins us from Therapy Dogs Nationwide in nearby Birkenhead.

Ridgewood Court has a boutique shop ‘Gifts for Me and You’ (GFMY), selling handcrafted gifts that have been made by artists in the Pensby and wider Wirral area. There is everything from candles and pictures, to jewellery and jams. Our care home receives 10 per cent of the profits of everything we sell, which pays for more treats for our residents!

Care home features coming soon!

We are creating an old fashioned vintage sweet shop and pharmacy in the home. With old jars of sweets and antique scales to weigh them out, this area will be a real step back in time for our residents, many of whom live with dementia.

Ridgewood Court has other exciting new additions on the horizon. We are purchasing a special piece of equipment that simulates a train journey. With screens either side playing out different routes, it will feel as though residents are riding cross country on a steam locomotive! Ridgewood Court is also getting a Magic Table, which have been used in Sanctuary Care’s other homes, including Lake View Residential Care Home in Telford. Staff have been amazed at the joy this table brings to their residents who live with dementia, as they can interact with one another through simple light games projected onto a surface.
