Care Types

Our care is not just about the nursing needs of our residents – it also encompasses the care and time to get to know every resident.
We are proud to provide the following expert care at all our Encore care homes.

Care

We provide high quality residential, nursing, dementia, palliative and respite care across all our care homes. The care we offer is as individual as you or your loved one; every resident receives a bespoke care plan which is reviewed regularly. Our focus is on you or your loved one’s care and wellbeing.

Accommodation

Our homes have been designed with you in mind. Each resident has their own spacious private bedroom and en-suite wet room. We offer various styles of rooms to suit your taste and budget. Each floor is its own community so you, or your loved one will feel part of a smaller family unit and can make friends with other residents easily.

Cuisine

Healthy and appetising meals are such an important part of every day and we ensure that you enjoy freshly cooked nutritional meals prepared by our in-house Chefs. We encourage friends and family to catch up with you over a cup of tea and a slice of cake in our café areas or enjoy a family meal in one of the private dining rooms.

Activities

We have Wellbeing teams in all our care homes to help you continue with hobbies you enjoy, or to try new ones. With entertainers, fitness sessions, local school children popping in or visiting alpacas, there is always something going on. We believe it is important to support your or your loved one’s wellbeing through mental, spiritual and emotional activities.
