Saint Cecilia’s Care Home provides specialist care for up to 21 people who are living with any stage or form of dementia, as well as day care. Our care is based on the belief that people should be able to enjoy as much individual freedom and independence as possible whilst they are living with dementia. 

We provide relationship-centred care where each member of staff provides care for all the residents but builds stronger bonds with a small number of residents. For those with dementia this helps create comfort and familiarity as they always have someone in particular, they trust and can relate to and go to, which is very important.

When a resident comes to our care home, they and their loved ones become part of our family and it is our pleasure and privilege to look after them all. Each resident has a carefully researched care plan, drawn up with the resident, their family and other care professionals, where relevant. This ensures that our residents get individual care based on their likes and dislikes and any physical and medical needs they have. These care plans not only give us the facts but also paint a picture of the resident so that we can get to know them and their history and enable us to provide personal, one-to-one care. That individual care is followed through on a day-to-day basis by ensuring that each resident gets a choice of food that is based upon their preferences as well as any dietary requirements and also in the way they can personalise their room with their own familiar furniture, ornaments and pictures to make it as homely as possible.

Our care is holistic and involves the whole family, so we pride ourselves on providing excellent on-going support. Help and advice to our residents’ loved ones. Relatives are welcome to visit the care home and to contact us with any requests or concerns they may have. We hold regular relatives’ meetings to keep everyone fully up to date with the latest information from the home and publish a bi-monthly newsletter. Our carers are special people with a passion to go the extra mile. It isn’t unusual to see a carer in the home on their day off if a resident needs them. We never forget that it is more than a place of work it is our residents’ home.

Read the latest report on our home provided by our inspection body the Care Quality Commission.

  • Attractive building with original features

  • Beautiful gardens with summer house and fishpond

  • Two bright, well-equipped and attractive lounges

  • Easily accessible and pleasant dining rooms

  • Comfortable and easily personalised rooms

Our lovely home is set in a large, attractive building which retains its original features and character both outside and in. The residents’ rooms are warm and comfortable, with many ensuite and can be filled with their own furniture, ornaments and pictures to make them more personal and homely. Saint Cecilia’s Care Home is lucky to have two light, spacious and airy lounges so that we can accommodate activities and entertainment in one and quiet time in the other. One room has a large, widescreen TV, DVD player and music centre. We also have two dedicated, pleasant and easily accessible dining rooms.

The building is well maintained throughout and regularly decorated to retain a fresh, pleasant and attractive environment. Our spotless bathrooms and toilets are adapted for ease of use and dignity.

Our most popular feature is our beautiful, enclosed garden which has a summer house, fenced fishpond and ample seating. Our residents love to walk or sit in the garden, potter with the plants, sit in the summer house or enjoy some outdoor activities or music.

At our care home we enjoy a regular programme of entertainment including games, sing-along sessions, gentle exercise and regular reminiscence activities. We also welcome visiting entertainers and enjoy regular outings, including trips out thanks to the minibuses the group owns. Some residents like to get involved, bake a cake, potter in the garden. At the same time, we also enjoy quiet time with our residents, and they particularly enjoy some one-to-one time with our staff. The home is equipped with full, safe security, including Telecare monitoring.

Maintaining dignity and a pride in our appearance is very important to the care we offer and so we have regular visits from a hairdresser, a private chiropodist, and an aromatherapist.

We mark our residents’ birthdays and enjoy parties to mark religious festivals, major sports events, royal occasions and national fundraising days.

Say hello to some of the key members of staff at our home.

kind words about our care

  • ‘A perfect example of how a care home should be, the care and support both my friend and I received were exceptional… Keep up the outstanding work Saint Cecilia's and thank you for everything; I feel so lucky to have chosen you.’


  • ‘… I highly recommend Saint Cecilia's Care Home. The care is so person-centred and the staff truly care and embody all the values that the organisation promotes - safety, care and putting the person at the heart of everything they do. They have taken, and continue to take, such care and concern for our family member, getting to know her as an individual and understanding her dementia needs, what will make her happy and what could agitate her more. They treat all residents with the care and dignity they deserve!’

    Caroline M

  • ‘Staff are always friendly, bubbly and helpful. The staff have brilliant relationships with my friend, who is living at the home, as well as with others, which is evident each time I visit. … I have only good things to say about Saint Cecilia's and the happiness they bring to people's lives.’
