Northampton's Finest Care Home

Our interiors have been luxuriously fitted and furnished with the tastes of our residents in mind. Cliftonville’s generously sized bedrooms are equipped with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in showers, as well as flat screen TVs with DVD players. We encourage residents to personalise their rooms with photographs, ornaments and other keepsakes, and guests are welcome to visit at any time or perhaps join you for a meal.

The home’s vibrant communal areas are the social hub of our community. Residents come together to socialise in our range of comfortable lounges, be it to chat or take part in a range of group activities. Elsewhere, quiet rooms and patio areas mean residents can read or relax without distraction.

For a touch of pampering, we have an excellent therapy room and modern hair salon, and our in-home gym makes it easy to keep fit and active.

We appreciate the importance of technology when it comes to residents keeping in touch with friends and family. With this in mind, Cliftonville is equipped with free Wi-Fi throughout, and we are always on hand to help residents get the most out of our computers. We recently helped one resident enjoy a live link up via Skype to a wedding in Australia and there wasn't a dry eye in the room!

Restaurant Standard Dining

We pride ourselves on the quality of the restaurant standard food our passionate in-house kitchen team prepare from fresh, local produce. Alex, our head chef, has been with Cliftonville since it opened and has brought a wealth of experience to our dining experience. He has created a team who take pride in catering for all tastes and who enjoy our culinary themed events. 

Meals are beautifully presented and served in the home’s bright and modern communal dining area, where family are welcome to join us at any time. We can also arrange for private dining on special occasions too. Residents are actively encouraged to contribute in the planning of weekly menus.

In addition to our set meals, residents are able to enjoy a selection of freshly baked cakes, chocolates and aperitifs throughout the day. We are able to cater for special dietary requirements at Cliftonville Care Home, so just let us know if you have any particular needs and we will see to it.

Activities Seven Days a Week

Our approach to communal activity at Cliftonville aims to develop a sense of community, wellbeing and companionship within our home.

Residents enjoy physically active and mentally engaged lifestyles, which we encourage and foster through the home’s lively leisure schedule. Activities, which include knitting and gardening, take place most days and we also run a monthly carpet bowls tournament to encourage a touch of friendly competition!

We regularly make use of the home’s dedicated projection room by watching films, playing quizzes and getting active using our Nintendo Wii and Xbox. The large screen is also used to help residents connect with family and friends over webcam.  We take great pride in being able to facilitate Skype links and we fondly recall an occasion when a resident was able to participate in her granddaughters wedding in Australia, by watching the whole event, together with a commentary on the big screen TV. A magical moment and something which has become common place in the home. Our links with the local community mean that we can enjoy performances from local schools, entertainment groups and Age UK, who arrange classical recitals and tap dance lessons.

As well as the activities we undertake within the home, residents enjoy excursions to the nearby park, garden centre and other local attractions.

Dementia Care

Avery Healthcare’s dementia care strategy, Connect, has been formulated from the latest evidence-based care. Connect’s dedicated and personal approach to dementia care pays attention to the unique needs of each resident, aiming to ensure they live a happy and engaged life.  The use of life stories has proven popular with residents and families and if our dementia want to be occupied by getting involved in daily tasks, that is fine by us. Many of our Connect residents enjoy helping us fold the napkins, prepare tables for eveing diner and generally helping out. 

Family Involvement

Avery Healthcare’s ARIES programme puts residents and their families at the heart of the home’s decision making; their feedback is of the utmost importance to us. At Cliftonville, residents and their families meet every month to help steer the development of the care home and make valued contributions for which we are grateful.

    Testimonial from Anon

    The home is beautiful and a delight to visit. Having done so now for 2 years I realise the most important aspects are good food and staff attitudes and dealings with their clients. Food is excellent and your staff are tops! I have visited professionally and personally many, many homes and your staff are quite the best. I hope they are valued by Avery and that it reflects in a good and better wage than the average. Cares are usually very low paid.

    To all the staff who looked after my mother during her recent time at Cliftonville

    I would just like to express my sincere gratitude for the kindness and care you gave to Mum during the last couple of months of her long life. The level of care you provided was exceptional and made her last few weeks so comfortable. You dealt with her with obvious kindness and compassion, and I am indebted to all who looked after her.

    In particular I would like to say a special thank you to Silvia and Danielle and your other staff. Your professionalism was exceptional and I applaud and thank you.

    We feel that we must write to you to express our sincere appreciation for the care that your staff at

    Cliftonville Care Home gave our mother, Vera Brown, during the last months of her life.

    From her arrival in October 2011 she was made to feel at home and all her family were always

    made welcome. We feel that there is a really caring atmosphere at Cliftonville and all residents and

    their visitors are looked after.

    During her last 10 days your staff were particularly attentive to the needs of Vera and all her family.

    Vera's care and dignity was paramount in your staff's thoughts and actions. We have never before

    encountered the level and care and consideration shown by your staff.

    By staff we include not only the nursing staff but every level from maintenance, cleaners catering

    and carers to reception, office staff and management. Many knew us on first name terms and were

    always willing to speak with us which made life easier during Vera's last days.

    The support of all the staff at Cliftonville went above and beyond anything we could have expected.

    Thank you is not really sufficient but please pass on our gratitude and appreciation to everyone at

    Cliftonville.

    Yours sincerely

    and exciting hobbies.

    Mum has many friends to share in the fun and laughter, thanks to your encouragement and

    thoughtfulness.

    My thanks to all your staff and those working hard behind scenes in making Mum's time there a

    happy fun one. We are all so grateful we know Cliftonville is a special place, and have peace of

    Testimonial from J. J.

    I was given the opportunity of staying at Cliftonville care home for just over two weeks from Northampton General Hospital.

    I would like to say what a lovely room I had, and a lovely bed. I cannot praise the nurses and staff enough for the care and kindness given to me – nothing was too much trouble and they always had a smile.

    The food was good with lots on the menu. I miss being waited on!

    Your staff are people to be proud of.

  • "To have got her back on her feet (literally and metaphorically) and back with her friends...."

    Testimonial from C. D.

    Good afternoon Marius,

    I came over to visit Mum last Saturday and would like to thank you and all your colleagues for the wonderful love and care that you have obviously been giving Mum. To have got her back on her feet (literally and metaphorically) and back with her friends on the Connect floor is truly remarkable.

    We had lots of our news to give her and over the visit she followed every bit of it. She even had her old chuckle back which I had not heard for a long time.

    Marius - thank you for your insistence when Mum was in hospital that she was going to get better and for your hard work in being her advocate when she was there.

    To all the care staff - thank you for your love, support and patience that you have given my mother. When Susan on the Connect floor asked me how I thought Mum was I think my reply was a bit vague. The great time that we had just spent with Mum had completely washed away from my mind how ill she was in the summer. So Susan and team - Mum is on great form, you have done a fantastic job.

    Once again, thank you everyone.
