Amherst Court

At Amherst Court we work to create a welcoming atmosphere in which residents enjoy activities, go on outings and make friends with other residents and staff.

At the heart of our home is our Philosophy of Care, the Eden Alternative, where staff encourage social interaction, engagement and work towards the eradication of loneliness and boredom.

Our home provides 24-hour care and support for people living with dementia, where our team of qualified and attentive staff focus on the individual needs of the residents.

The modern design provides well equipped, bright en-suite bedrooms to support person centred care. The names of the suites follow a nautical theme – Charlotte, Trafalgar, Valiant and Apollo.

Other facilities include the cafe on the ground floor, providing a meeting place to enjoy a drink or a light lunch with family and friends.

There is a public computer available for any relatives visiting the home, or residents using it to browse or communicate with loved ones.

The beauty salon `Ship Shape´ is situated on the ground floor where you can treat yourself to a new hair style or beauty treatment.

Residents can visit the pretty courtyard garden to while away a peaceful afternoon, or join in with the daily programme of activities throughout the home. The minibus also gives residents the opportunity for day trips out to one of the many local places of interest.

Amherst Court provides a safe, warm and friendly environment with support for daily tasks such as washing, cleaning and laundry.

Amherst Court delivers a respite care service allowing a crucial break for carers, for just a few hours or for several weeks. This offers family carers the chance to go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off.
