As a residential retirement home for the active elderly, HRH is for people who are alert, who have a degree of mobility, and who are generally able to look after themselves, but are finding it increasingly difficult to manage in their own home. Perhaps they have reached the stage in their lives where their home is too much to cope with alone. So shopping, cooking, cleaning, and generally getting out and about have become exhausting, overwhelming or potentially dangerous at worst.

With 23 individual bedrooms, with en suites, a large communal lounge, library, dining room and two conservatories. HRH has the comforts of home, in a carefully controlled, safe environment. The corridors linking all areas are kept clear and safe. People can walk independently, or with a walking frame, from the front reception through the main rooms to the garden on one level, encountering no steps. Access to the bedrooms on the first floor is via a 8 man passenger lift. There is also wheelchair access available in the home, from the ramp access at the front from the drive.

Respite Care

Looking after your loved one can take it’s toll. Sometimes you could both do with a break, this is where we are extremely happy to help you out with our respite care facility.

HRH provides an exceptional and incomparable care to our residents. All carers are exceptionally well trained and NVQ qualified. Each of our residents have an individually, person centred care plan. This enables us to ensure that the client’s daily routine is tailored to their own requirement.

Every bedroom has a nurse call system. Resident’s feel safe in the knowledge that there is always someone very close and assured that they are just a button away.
Let us take care of your loved one for you.

Activities

Once here, people simply relax or pursue their own hobbies and interests, as and when they want to. Our conservatories are the place to just relax and enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea. A choice of courses or activities are on offer in the winter: crafts, exercise classes, singing or performances in the home. Or there’s always time to just sit in the lounge or library in peace and quiet.
