You're in safe hands

With the announcement of a national lockdown on 4th January 2021, we will be unable to support internal visits with the use of rapid tests, in line with government guidance. Visits within our designated visitor suites can continue as normal however, and should be booked in the usual way. End of Life and essential visits will be facilitated as per government guidance. With the commencement of vaccination programmes in our Care Homes we will be reviewing this situation in line with advice from Public Health England and will welcome you back in to our homes with rapid tests as soon as it is safe to do so.

Petals Active Living Centres

In addition to providing our specialist dementia care services in our care homes and to people living in their own homes, we have a number of Centres offering day care. Our Centres enable customers to spend the day with us, and allow family carers some 'me-time', secure in the knowledge that their loved ones are enjoying a day of socialising and joining in with activities. The Centres focus on short to medium care and support for people with dementia and their families and provide a variety of stimulating activities including:

  • Support with cooking, gardening and other daily tasks.
  • Reminiscence, life stories, sing-alongs and music therapy.
  • Light exercise, bowling, walking and outings.
  • Games, quizzes, flower arranging, arts and crafts and other creative activities.

We are involved in award-winning research work, recognised nationally, which we use to inform and develop our services to improve the lives of people living with dementia. We also use a tool known as dementia care mapping to check the quality of the support and care being provided.

Our specialist dementia care support services have been created through our expertise and from listening and responding to our customers and residents' needs, and the needs of their family and friends.
