Our Building and Facilities

A firm favourite at the home with many of the residents is the cinema room. With luxury art deco style cinema seating and footstools, walls filled with images of iconic stars such as Audrey Hepburn and mood lighting; there is an authentic old movie theatre feel to this room.

There is an old fashioned library, with wooden effect panelling and shelves filled with titles our residents like to read. And if there is nothing that takes their fancy, Wiltshire Libraries come to the home every fortnight to refresh the titles and bring specific books our residents have ordered. This room has a large balcony, with high glass panelling for safety, where residents can sit and admire the gardens.

Upstairs there is also a vintage style tea room, with fine china, floral wallpaper, bunting and wooden furniture, it’s like an old fashioned café. The tea room opens out onto another balcony with views of the gardens, which have raised plant wooden planters and wheelchair friendly pathways, making them ideal for residents who are less mobile.

There is an impressive hair and beauty salon for residents who like to look their best. The room has a nail bar too.

The Importance Of Meal Times

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.

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.

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.

Activities Are So Important

Having only recently opened, the Briggs Lodge has already welcomed artistic youngsters from St Margaret’s Prepatory School in Calne, Wiltshire along for a visit. The children came to the home with artwork they had created, showing what they imagine life to be like in 60 years’ time, when they may be old enough to move into a residential and nursing home. The artwork will be buried in a time capsule on the site, to be opened in the year 2079. The residents will soon be getting young visitors from Little Bears Pre School nearby in Devizes which they are really looking forward to.
