The 27 bedrooms at Swanholme Court are bright, comfortable and homely with their en-suite shower rooms. Our facilities encourage independence but carers are always on hand to help, respecting preferences for entering people’s rooms. As this is their own space, residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms and make themselves properly at home.
Our lounge is cosy, comfortable and tastefully furnished, encouraging our residents to relax in comfort. They can settle into their favourite chair for a rest, join their friends for a chat or join in with one of our regular activities, whatever makes them feel most at home.
Our light and airy dining area is clean and bright, to give residents a dignified and comfortable dining experience. Our tables are laid ready for the forthcoming meal just as you would at home, giving a homely and relaxed atmosphere in which people can enjoy their meals.
We encourage our residents to continue to enjoy their hobbies and pastimes, and for those who have appreciated spending time in the garden, we continue to offer that opportunity here at Swanholme Court Care Home. It's one of the most popular activities at our home, with resident's efforts winning the Country Court in Bloom gardening competition 2017.
