Our stunning new development at Richmond Wood Norton in Worcestershire features a 60 bed state-of-the-art care home. We also provide bespoke care packages delivered to our residents in apartments and suites by our dedicated Domiciliary Care team.
Corridors and communal areas are wide and airy making this an easy space to navigate and walk through. It’s lovely place to reside and spend time as a family member or guest. The home will feature two wings: one to support residents living with dementia, and another for frail and elderly residents where we provide 24/7 nursing care.
We are more than just a care home in that the surrounding facilities of the villages are accessible to our care home residents, including the tranquil, heated pool that features a comfortable hoist. Our fitness professionals from our onsite fitness gym visit the care home regularly to ensure residents can participate in innovative exercise such as seated yoga and mobility building tai chi if they wish.
We are extremely passionate about providing a comfortable home for people who have received a dementia diagnosis. Our dementia residents live well, are mobile and require very little clinical support so we can provide proactive care that focusses on the person as an individual. This area of the home is designed to feel warm and elegant with plenty of visual indicators such a clear signage and memory boxes to help residents navigate communal and personal spaces simply and calmly. Group activity features music and reminiscence therapy, and we will ensure valuable one to one time is also offered to individuals.
Frail and elderly residents benefit from a lovely home environment. Private en-suite bedrooms are stylishly appointed with space to bring plenty of personal possessions and furniture. State of the art profiling beds ensure maximum comfort and staff can administer care around the resident easily. Residents will be able to enjoy a full programme of events and activities run by the dedicated team led by a ‘Head of Happiness’ and time is spent on individual hobbies and interests too.
Wood Norton offers respite breaks and it is possible to book these stays in advance. If you are a carer looking for a break yourself but don’t want to be too far away from your loved one please ask our Village Advisors about Richmond Retreats at this location.
Individual rooms are tastefully decorated with luxury fittings and furnishings. That said, there’s nothing as comforting as being surrounded by your own possessions, so residents are encouraged to personalise their room with photographs, pictures, ornaments and small pieces of furniture to create a familiar environment. All rooms also have en-suite facilities, remote controlled colour television and a state-of-the-art nurse call system.
Our dedicated activities team runs a social programme which includes arts and crafts, various workshops, music, entertainment and gardening. Many of our residents see living at a Richmond Wood Norton as an opportunity to develop a new skill or interest.
Every care home in England needs to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who are an independent regulator of health and social care. They regularly monitor and inspect all of our care homes to ensure the standards of care and service provided to our residents is safe and effective. Richmond Wood Norton will be registered and inspected by the CQC and we will publish the report here:
We are very proud to have an outstanding level of reviews that come from our residents and their families. These are handled and verified by an independent website called carehome.co.uk.
