Safe Visiting Space

Brentwood Care Centre has available for resident and family visiting an Edison DayLodge.

The lodges give residents and their families the peace-of-mind that it’s a clean and safe environment thanks to the Automatic Sanitisation System that’s guaranteed to kill 99.9% off all germs, including the Coronavirus (as stated by Edison & Day®). Other important safety features include separate entrances for residents and visitors, and a plexiglass room divider. It also has the added benefit of heating and air-conditioning so, whatever the weather, everyone can enjoy their visit in comfort.

The Day Lodge is comfortable and bright with spacious facilities that have been beautifully furnished and decorated for maximum comfort, creating a peaceful and homely atmosphere for safe visitation; enabling residents to spend time with their loved ones whilst adhering to Government and Public Health Guidelines.

They are the perfect place to allow families to spend quality time together, worry free.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Our care home has WiFi in some of our residents’ rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Our care home provides a telephone in some of our residents’ rooms.

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

Activities Are So Important

Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Brentwood Care Centre is a key focus for our dedicated team.

By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their personal tastes as well as activities they may like to try.

No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, baking, quizzes, movie afternoons and our knit and natter club, we also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools, nurseries, Pets As Therapy dogs and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.

Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, visiting local attractions, such as country parks and Southend seafront, and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year — complete with themed menus and decorations!

Every month our residents also get the chance to take part in their very own special request show on a local radio station. They love choosing their favourite songs and then gather together to hear them played on the radio – where they chat about what they were up to when the songs were first released.
