Elderly Care | Respite
Avon House is a lovely, small 16 room private elderly care home that has held a strong local reputation for many years. Residents, families and visitors alike remark on the warm, caring, homely atmosphere that makes Avon House unique.
Because of our size, staff can really get to know residents, and see how their sensitive, highly personalised care contributes to each resident’s well-being. Personal choice, independence and dignity are always of utmost importance, regardless of the level of individual support needed.
Families play a key part in Avon House; whether it is to visit loved ones, participate in life stories and care plans, come to our family events, or to provide continuous feedback about how we can make life at Avon House even better for their loved one. Our Manager and her Deputy have a combined experience of 34 years as Carers. They are not stuck in an office all day and are able to maintain their meticulous standards by being highly involved in the day to day activities of both residents and staff.
"Our aim is simply to provide residential care to a standard where we ourselves would be very happy for a loved member of our own family to live. We want each resident to feel that Avon House is truly their home."
"The care my mother receives is excellent. Her dignity is always respected and continuity of carers ensures a stable staffing environment" - Son of resident
