Our bedrooms are luxurious and tastefully decorated, making them comfortable and relaxing places. Residents are encouraged to bring personal belongings with them, which often become talking points especially for those new to our home. All bedrooms are en-suite with walk-in wet rooms to aid independent living.
Light, bright and spacious, our communal lounge and dining areas take full advantage of the original features of our home, with full height windows giving views overlooking our garden. Residents can find a quiet spot to enjoy reading or a chat with friends, or if they are feeling sociable, they can join in with group activities and entertainment.
Our dining rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and welcoming, ensuring residents look forward to joining their friends from the coming meal. Our front of house team is on hand to support residents at mealtimes, serve drinks and ensure that they have everything they need to make dining a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Our pub is one of our most popular facilities. Whether it’s a half-pint of bitter, fruit juice or a glass of wine, an hour in the pub is a real social occasion for our residents. Just as you would expect in any local, residents can relax, enjoy life and share good times with friends, as they always have done.
For many of our residents, a set and blow dry are part of their weekly calendar! They love a trip to the salon to see the hairdresser, and we find it is a great boost for well-being. For those that like to keep their nails looking smart, our activities team are on hand to offer hand pampering and manicures too.
Serving hot and cold beverages, delicious cakes and bakes and with snacks available around the clock, our cafe is a popular place here at St John’s. Residents often host regular coffee mornings for their friends and visitors, just as they would have arranged to meet up with friends at their favourite coffee shop in their local town or village.
For many of our residents, spending time in the garden is their favourite pastime. We also have our Annual Country Court in Bloom competition which sparks a lot of joy – and rivalry! Our residents have made their outdoor space their own, creating colourful murals and many enjoy divvying up gardening tasks between them - some even have their own personal flowerbeds or veg patches to tend to.
Originally from Cheddar in Somerset, Susan was employed as a civil servant for both the Ministry of Defence and HMRC for 25 years. She joined St John's in October 2014 as their administrator. Her 20 years of Samaritan Voluntary work has also helped her to fit into the role wonderfully. Susan enjoys getting to know residents and is always happy to stop for a chat and get involved with events.
Ida always goes the extra mile to ensure all residents are included in activities at St John’s Care Home. From local singers to Pets As Therapy dogs, visitors never fail to bring a smile to the faces of our residents. In spending time getting to know people, Ida and the Activity team are able to provide a wide range of crafts, games and quizzes enabling people to retain their links to Spalding.
