Orchard House is situated close to the High Street in the beautiful village of Sawston, on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Seven miles from the picturesque university city of Cambridge, our care home is a bus ride from all the shops, restaurants, galleries, stunning cathedral and other attractions this stunning city has to offer.

Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care, dementia care and day care.

Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounges and dining rooms and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax.

Orchard House also has a hairdressing salon and Day Care Centre, where people from the local community can meet and socialise.

However it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Orchard House a true home from home.

We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.

To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.

Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.

Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.

Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.

Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, home-made soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.

There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.

Activities Are So Important

We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.

We have a hairdressing salon and our residents also enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.

Regular activities on offer include everything from baking, light exercise and health sessions, animal therapy, bingo, arts and crafts and live music entertainment.

Our residents also take part in day trips to garden centres, heritage houses, pub lunches and shopping trips, as well as helping to host fun themed community events throughout the year.
