Home Comforts

Home Comforts

Residents enjoy their own comfortable and spacious en-suite bedrooms which can be personalised to suite their individual tastes. Our home has wonderful spaces to relax and enjoy company, including an activities room, hairdressing salon, indoor garden and themed reminiscence areas. We also have beautiful sensory gardens, so our residents can relax and enjoy activities outdoors. As a specialist dementia service, our furnishings and lighting are purpose designed to meet the needs of our residents. Music plays an important part in everyday life at Carlingwark. We use Playlist for Life, a specialist music therapy that supports people living with dementia to enjoy songs that are personally memorable to them.

We run an extensive activity programme with lots for everyone to get involved in, from one to one and group activities such as arts and crafts, gardening, quiz and game nights and sing-alongs, as well as hosting regular social events, including performances from local entertainers. We also support people to enjoy days out in the community too!

Food and Nutrition

Food and Nutrition

Mealtimes represent an important social occasion for our residents and we work to ensure they are as enjoyable as possible, unhurried and relaxed with residents being given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their meal, while chatting and socialising with other residents.

Our chefs prepare nutritious and delicious meals, which are freshly made on site. We also support people who have specialist diets.

Person Centred Support

Person Centred Support

We are committed to providing personalised support that encourages everyone who live at Carlingwark House to lead full, happy and independent lives. Our colleagues receive specialist training and mentoring.

We really get to know the people we support. To achieve this, we spend time understanding their life story and the things that are important to them, so that we can focus on the things that really matter to them.

Every person we support has a named key worker who works with them to help develop their own personalised care plan.
