Meet The Manager

Julie Hedley is Home Manager at Argyles Care Home.

In their most recent report, the CQC found Argyles to be “caring” and said “people were treated with dignity and respect.” They also called our staff “kind” and described the “compassionate” way they cared for residents.

There’s such a homely atmosphere here – we’re like one big family. Argyles is in an excellent spot, an easy stroll from town centre shops, parks, the library, and theatre, and we have great links to local schools and community groups.

There are lots of places to relax around our home, both indoors and out. Residents can choose to have their hair done, enjoy the warmth of the conservatory, or have a catch-up over coffee in one of our lounges.

Our Building and Facilities

There’s such a homely atmosphere here – we’re like one big family. Argyles is in an excellent spot, an easy stroll from town centre shops, parks, the library, and theatre, and we have great links to local schools and community groups.

There are lots of places to relax around our home, both indoors and out. Residents can choose to have their hair done, enjoy the warmth of the conservatory, or have a catch-up over coffee in one of our lounges.

Our lounges are the ideal place to relax, where families can host private events like birthday parties and dinners. Families are welcome at meal times too.

The windows of our home provide bright space for both our lounges and conservatory, which leads out to a pretty garden and patio. The patio itself has lots of seating.

We have two ‘quiet zones’ - there are lots of activities on offer but if residents want some peace and quiet, there’s a choice of places to go.

Description

When a new resident arrives they’ll be met by their key carer, who’ll give them a guided tour of their new home. They’ll also tell them about meal times, activities and introduce them to some of the other residents and members of staff.

When a new resident joins us, we make getting to know them and their relatives a top priority. This helps us to build a picture of how they’d like to be supported day-to-day, so we can create a personalised care plan.


The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are an important part of daily life in our homes. Our chefs carefully select a different menu for each day of the week, making sure our residents enjoy a variety of our home cooked dishes.

Activities Are So Important

We get weekly visits from school children, beavers, beauty students from the local college, and the exercise class run by the local golf club.

Residents can go to the Memory Cafe at the Corner Exchange Theatre every week for a reminiscence session, visit Victoria Park for a picnic in summer when bands are performing on the band stand, and have monthly pub lunches.

We hold knit and natter sessions and accommodate visiting singers, magicians, movie afternoons, craft sessions, and baking.
