Chaucer House provides residential, nursing and dementia care. We work to create a welcoming atmosphere and put the health and well-being of the residents at the heart of everything we do.

The luxury care home provides residential, nursing and dementia care for 60 residents. At Chaucer House we work to create a welcoming atmosphere and put the health and wellbeing of the residents at the heart of everything we do. 
The modern design provides well equipped, bright lounges and en-suite bedrooms to support person centred care in which residents enjoy activities 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 team of qualified and attentive staff focus on the individual needs of the residents. 
Other facilities include the Beauty Salon where you can treat yourself to a new hair style or beauty treatment, a cinema room for residents and their families to enjoy a movie as well as a playroom with toys for the younger visitors to the home! 
There is a communal computer available for any relatives visiting the home, or for residents wanting to browse the internet or communicate with loved ones through email or video communication.
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.
As well as a flexible day care service Chaucer House offers 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.

Understanding the type of care you need is an important first step in finding a care home that is right for you

With this in mind we have plenty of useful information you can access to help you with making the right choice.

We have an open door policy across all of our homes. You are welcome to visit at any time and see what care is provided. Our staff are there to assist with any questions you may have.
