Existing residents and service users
The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff are our main priorities. We have therefore put in place robust and comprehensive contingency plans to respond to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK. Our plans are regularly reviewed and updated as advised by the Public health authorities. To continue to support our residents, service users and staff during this period of uncertainty with coronavirus COVID-19, our care homes remain closed to any visitors except health care professionals.
All of our care homes have been set up for video calling to enable you to keep in touch with your loved ones and we are confident that our staff will do all they can to ensure that life in our care services remains as comfortable and sociable as possible as we support them with delivering interactive activities, whilst practicing social distancing. We are very aware how difficult this must be to not visit a loved one and we know you have been unable to do so for several weeks now, thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
New residents and service users
We know that during the current pandemic people are still looking for and requiring residential care or home care services. We are currently still taking admissions into our care homes for those that need care. Please call our care homes or home care service if you are looking for care or need any further help.
We want to assure you that when we are admitting new residents from the community, we are doing so safely. We have clear policies in place to ensure that testing or screening is done. If it is appropriate for a resident to move in to our care homes, the resident will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days within the home upon admission.
During that time we will ensure that the new resident is as fully engaged in the life of the home as possible. We will not accept any admission we feel would be a risk to our current residents in our care homes. Our staff are all trained in infection control and are vigilant to the symptoms of COVID-19.

At Bridge Haven 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 we 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.
Care Home Tour
Bridge Haven provides well equipped, bright en-suite bedrooms to support person centred care, overlooking the gardens that surround the home. The names of the suites follow a floral theme - Primrose and Bluebell.
Facilities at Bridge Haven include the pub known as `The Snug´, for residents to enjoy a drink or two with friends, and a cinema room to catch up on all the latest films or revisit classics. Gregory’s Tea Room offers a great place to relax and have an afternoon tea with family and friends, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Residents can also join in with a 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.
Bridge Haven provides a safe, warm and friendly environment with support for daily tasks such as washing, cleaning and laundry. Bridge Haven 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.
