And, for therapeutic ‘me time’, a dedicated hair salon provides on-site hair and beauty facilities. Our menus are varied and nutritious and we strive to create a comfortable home-from-home environment with a strong family feel.

Our Building and Facilities

Barty House Nursing Home provides a high standard of accommodation for up to 59 residents. The characterful rooms in the older part of the building come in various sizes with en-suite toilet and washroom facilities. Their traditional windows overlook different aspects of the garden, offering captivating views at any time of year.

The bright, spacious bedrooms in our contemporary extension all have en-suite wetrooms, and many have direct access to the courtyard garden. 

Our welcoming reception area leads into an airy and cheerful conservatory, a popular place for our residents to enjoy the sunshine.

The communal areas, such as the glass-fronted Willow Lounge overlooking the Kent countryside, are all designed to provide comfortable spaces to socialise with guests or other residents or take part in a variety of stimulating or therapeutic activities. The dining room offers an exceptional dining experience. 

There is lift access to all floors, and all are wheelchair accessible.  

Glorious grounds surround the house, from the traditional English gardens at the front to the wheelchair-accessible courtyard area at the centre of the new building. The summer house provides a delightful place to sit and enjoy the outdoors, and also doubles as Santa’s grotto at Christmas!

The gardens are inhabited by rabbits and many types of birds, so there is always something interesting to look at!

Many of our residents love animals, and have enjoyed having pets in the past, so we have regular visits from friendly dogs, and some of our residents’ visitors are able to bring their own dogs with them.

Under certain circumstances we may accept residents with pets but please check with the manager when you visit. We also welcome pets to visit but, again, do check with the manager first.

The home manager is supported 24/7 by a multi-disciplinary team of nurses, carers, domestic, catering and admin staff, who all receive regular in-house training from our training manager.

We have good staff ratios to ensure the highest level of care is given to our residents from a professional team. Many of our carers are also qualified to, or working towards, NVQ or Diploma Levels 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care. If staff wish to pursue more advanced qualifications in care and leadership, we offer them every support.

At our home, quality of care is not just about the practical aspects of meeting your health needs. Your emotional wellbeing is equally important, and you will find a team here with compassion, warmth and a genuine interest in you.

In our home, we care for you as part of our own family. This means that whatever we are doing for you, from nursing care to simply helping you to read the daily paper, our first considerations are for your comfort, reassurance and dignity.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Maintaining an adequate level of nutrition and hydration is vitally important for elderly people. Equally, enjoying healthy, appetising and visually appealing food is a big part of feeling happy and content.

All meals are home-cooked in our kitchens from fresh ingredients by our chefs and their catering team. Menus change daily and there's plenty of variety.

Lunch is usually the main meal of the day and you will be given the menu in advance. If none of the day’s choices appeal you can request something else. Your evening meal is usually something lighter but, again, you will have three choices such as sandwiches, soup, or a hot meal. By special request, you can save your main meal for the evening rather than lunch.

Hot and cold drinks, fruit juices and smoothies are available during the day whenever you feel like them, and you will usually find home-made cakes on offer, too.

We are very happy to cater for special dietary requirements. If you need a puréed diet, for example, or have food allergies or intolerances, these will be noted in your personal care plan and shared with our catering and care teams who will ensure that your diet matches your requirements.

Our catering teams are just as much part of the family as you are, so they will enjoy getting to know you and your food likes and dislikes.

We encourage residents who can to eat in the dining room with others. Sharing a meal is an important part of family life. But if you prefer, you can have any meals brought to you in your room. If you like breakfast in bed or a late night snack, it is totally up to you.

Activities Are So Important

We have an active social life in our home with plenty of opportunities to make new friends and participate in a variety of interesting activities and day trips.

This is important because an active life can help to keep you more alert, mobile and happier, with better health and wellbeing overall.

Our activities co-ordinators create a monthly programme of activities - from entertainments, such as visiting singers and film matinees, to painting and crafts, baking, gardening, quizzes and yoga. If your preferred hobby isn’t on the list, we can support you to continue with it. Even if you find moving about difficult, it is still important to get as much exercise as possible, so we also organise gentle exercise sessions, to help keep you mobile.

Family and friends are welcome to join in with activities, and we also organise special events (like our annual summer fête, for example) to which we invite your family, friends and local community groups. If you like to get out and about, we can arrange for someone to go shopping with you and the activities team also arranges group trips and meals out.

Or it might be that what you want is as simple as to read, watch TV or listen to the radio in the quiet of your own room. Or someone to sit with you and read the paper, talk about things that are important to you, or help you keep in touch with your loved ones via post, email or Skype. Whatever you prefer, the choice is yours.
