Our care home facilities
Decorated to offer a warm, safe and friendly environment where people can maintain their independence and feel at home in our care, our residential homes provide 24-hour person centred care in comfortable homely surroundings with welcoming facilities.
Each Anchor care home is fully furnished and decorated to a high standard with a range of practical design features presented discreetly. All our homes are fully fitted with a call system ensuring that help is at hand 24-hours a day, while specially equipped bathrooms, wheelchair access and lifts make day-to-day life more accessible.
You can expect comfortable, self-contained bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities and all featuring telephone and television points for digital and satellite TV in our care homes. We also encourage new residents to bring small personal items with them to further enhance their own rooms.
Our large, bright lounges are sociable spaces with TVs, radios and games, while quiet areas are set aside for reading and relaxing. Many Anchor care homes also include a library, hair salon, and pleasant outdoor spaces including in some homes accessible gardening facilities and quiet seating areas to spend with family and friends.
Some of our homes also provide a guest room to enable your visitors to stay overnight if you should so wish.
Supportive environments for those with dementia
Our care homes are designed with the needs of people living with dementia in mind. We continually consult a range of leading dementia specialists to ensure that our care homes offer safe, supportive, specially adapted environments that maximise a person’s independence and enhance their self-esteem. For more information about our approach, visit our dementia care page here.
You can rest assured that all Anchor's care home carers undergo intensive training and are required to complete QCF qualifications. Our dedicated care teams are passionate about what they do and at Anchor we specially select staff for their personal qualities, such as being instinctively warm with a natural desire to help others. Our carers work with our residents and their loved ones to create a detailed personal plan and build up meaningful relationships that ensure our residents’ individual health and care needs are continually met.
