Ellenborough Nursing Home
Welcome home to true care for elderly residents and people living with dementia, in North Somerset.
At Ellenborough Nursing Home, we’ve created a stimulating environment conducive to improving quality of life in two lovingly converted, traditional stone houses. A true home away from home, Ellenborough offers all those familiar comforts we grow attached to in old-age.
Ellenborough Nursing Home has 39 bedrooms with stylish décor and quality furnishings. The interiors boast traditional high ceilings decked with chandeliers. Our communal areas are where residents put their feet up in the company of others and/or join in social activities. These include the TV Lounge, the Quiet Room with library, and the Communal Activity Area. Dedicated staff are always on hand to guide activities and assist with individual needs.
Our home has a kitchen with a special viewing window, allowing residents and family to watch our cooks prepare the daily meals. Outside, we have a small garden with a stone patio.
Based in Weston-Super-Mare, North Somerset, Ellenborough is one of two Cedars Care Group care homes based in North Somerset. The other, is Winscombe Hall Care Centre, at Winscombe.
Activities for Body & Mind
At Ellenborough, we have a dedicated activities coordinator, who ensures that varied and interesting daily activities promote wellbeing and purpose among our residents. Each of our residents also have a ‘This is Me’ profile, drawn up when they first arrive. This is Me profiles keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide us when we are introducing residents to something new. Find out More
We believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. At Cedars Care Group homes, 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 helps to 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: Dementia Care; Nursing Care; Respite Care; Re-enablement Care; Convalescent Care; Post-operative Care; and End of Life 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
