Sharston House combines the warm, friendly feel of a family home with the elegance of an impressive Victorian residence. The home is set in attractive grounds with lawned areas and many mature shrubs and trees; a pleasant patio and outdoor seating area are popular with residents in the summer.

We place great importance on the lives our residents have led before coming to us. We spend time with them and family members to find out about their tastes, history, hobbies and interests. We see family and friends as our partners in caring for the individual and we welcome feedback and suggestions at all times. The information shared helps us to create individual care plans that are crucial in providing the best care and help us get to know the individual. Residents are helped to achieve their aims by taking part in meetings, surveys and one-to-ones.

The home is continually committed to specialist training, which enables staff to help individuals express their needs and maintain a high level of independence, self-worth and well-being.

Each Kingsley care home is unique but all have a set of highly respected and award-winning features embedded within the culture. Our daily emphasis is on the care that our residents need, whether that is physical, emotional or spiritual.

Our Building and Facilities

Sharston House is situated in one of Knutsford’s most pleasant locations, less than half a mile from the pretty town centre conservation area and with good road and rail links. The 48-bedroom home is an interesting combination of an old Victorian building with many original architectural details coupled with additional more recent bedrooms.

There is a large dining room and many relaxed sitting areas with televisions. Our chef uses fresh, local produce to create tempting daily dishes; kitchen staff are pleased to accommodate individual tastes and any special dietary requirements.

Description

The majority of rooms have ensuite facilities with many on the ground floor having patio door access to the garden. 

We welcome and encourage our residents to make their rooms as homely and personalised as possible. By furnishing the room with their own belongings they create a space in which they can feel safe and happy. Paintings, a favourite ornament and plenty of family photographs can all be of comfort and will help if a resident feels unsettled.

Description

The care team at Sharston are specifically selected to meet the criteria of a person-centred worker, and undergo a continuous programme of training, on both practical and theoretical levels. Most of our training is facilitated by our own training arm, Kingsley Academy.

A diagnosis of dementia brings with it a very difficult and confusing time for the individual and their loved ones, and it is only natural to feel anxious about moving somewhere new. At Sharston we ensure that the transition into our care is carefully assessed and managed in order to minimise upset to all concerned.

Residents who are experiencing memory loss benefit from our enlightened approach to dementia care, which stimulates, supports and comforts in a safe and homely environment. We are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for these residents, and we achieve this through our ‘Wings’ (Welcome, Individuality, Nurturing, Guidance, Sensitivity) philosophy of care. This award-winning approach is nationally recognized and our bespoke learning programme is designed to ensure that the person with a dementia is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s a friendly face, a warm smile or taking time to listen, making a positive difference to someone’s day is what makes our world go round.
