Our Building and Facilities

Our home provides interiors and facilities that are modern and welcoming. All bedrooms are en-suite and we encourage residents to make their rooms feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures and mementos.

Residents at Shawcross have a choice of spacious lounges to watch TV or listen to music, a dedicated activities area and a reminiscence room. All these are perfect places to welcome visitors. In the warmer months everyone enjoys our gardens with their patio seating and the sights, sounds and fragrances of our sensory garden. We’d be delighted to show you around to experience our homely, welcoming atmosphere for yourself so please arrange to pop in for a chat.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dieticians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients. To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can eat in our pleasant dining rooms or, if they prefer, we’re pleased to serve them their meal in the privacy of their own rooms.

We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
