Ellenborough Nursing and Residential Home
Welcome home to true care for elderly residents and people tackling dementia, in North Somerset.
What makes Ellenborough Nursing and Residential Home a true home away from home are the little things. Here we’ve combined a stimulating environment conducive to dementia care, with tasteful interiors in two lovingly converted stone-built houses.
Our communal areas are where residents put their feet up in the company of others and/or join in social activities. These include cosy family rooms with high-ceilings inside, as well as a verdant garden and stone patio outdoors. Dedicated staff are always on hand to guide activities and assist with individual needs.
Based in Weston-Super-Mare, North Somerset, Ellenborough has 27 bedrooms boasting stylish décor and high standard furnishings. Some of these are en-suite.
Activities & Stimulation
Varied and interesting daily activities promote wellbeing and purpose among our residents. Furthermore, each resident has a life book, drawn up when they first arrive. Life Books keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide carers when introducing residents to something new. Find out More
At Ellenborough, we believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. We make it our business to get to know the people we care for by spending time with them. Remembering past achievements, and the good old days, often help maintain a sense of self and fulfilment.
Family visits and family involvement are vital to the wellbeing of our residents. That’s why we aim to provide an environment that’s comfortable and invigorating for both residents and their visitors. Our planned activities and events are key opportunities for family participation and support. While the option of privacy is always available.
Personal Space & Personalised Care
Familiarity and reminiscence is invaluable. It keeps us connected with life; can ease the transition into care; and is helpful in improving memory skills for people with Alzheimer’s. At Ellenborough, all our residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with small belongings and photographs. This makes a world of difference and encourages a sense of belonging.
We offer several types of stay depending on the level of support required: long term daily Nursing Care; Respite Care; Residential Care; Convalescent Care; Post-operative Care; and Terminally-ill Care. Each resident receives personalised support in accordance with his/her individual care plan, under the supervision of a dedicated home manager.
At Ellenborough we actively seek feedback. It helps us ensure our care home continues to offer the highest quality support and care, tailored to the needs of our individual residents. Leave Feedback
