About Horse Fair
Horse Fair Care Home is one of the leading care homes in the South Staffordshire area and offers residential, dementia and respite care. The home is ideally located at the centre of Rugeley, just a few minutes from the A51 Lichfield Road and A460 Hednesford Road.
We are extremely proud of the reputation Horse Fair care home has quickly established across Staffordshire since its opening in 2010, and we receive a great many compliments about the care and support we that we provide. Everyone at Horse Fair is on first name terms, you feel it the moment you walk in and we are rightly proud of the caring and friendly atmosphere we all enjoy here. We work hard to settle each and every resident into home life as quickly as possible and appreciate that change isn't always easy in your later years. As your companions, we see to it that you are happy and settled. At Horse Fair there are rooms for quiet relaxation as well as socializing; we are respectful of the space and privacy that residents sometimes need.
Horse Fair care home offers real luxury and a quality of living that places it amongst the top performing care homes in the area. Residents are free to live the lives they choose, and often enjoy a new lease of life, free from the anxiety's and isolation that is a fact of life for those living alone. Rooms are each resident's own private space and we encourage everyone to personalise with pictures and other keepsakes from home. All rooms have a flat screen TV/DVD player for catching up with a favourite show or relaxing watching a film.

Our full-time Recreation and Leisure Coordinators ensure that residents always have the opportunity to enjoy a physically active and mentally stimulating day. Activities range from flower arranging and knitting to shopping trips into town and sing along sessions around the piano.
We know how important it is for our residents to keep in touch with family and friends, and as such we provide free Wi-Fi throughout the home. Computers are available for Skype, email or just browsing.
Family are welcome at any time in the care home and this means we often the enjoy the company of guests for dinner. This makes the dining room feel more like a large family room, with lively chatter about the day’s events over a glass of wine and the freshly cooked, restaurant standard food.
In the warmer months residents make great use of the outside patio area, which has tables and chairs and is completely enclosed for privacy. We often see residents chatting over a cup of tea and some tasty snacks provided by our in-house chef. The outdoor area includes a brand new sensory garden, designed to provide a variety of sensory stimuli.
One of our more popular activities is the reminiscence sessions where residents are encouraged to look back over the years and discuss major historical events both local and international. Residents enjoy remembering where they were at those momentous times; we often find friendships forming and strengthening during these sessions.
Residents are free to come and go from the care home and we organise trips out for walks in the local park and other local heritage sites. Rugeley town centre is only a few minutes’ walk away so shopping or visits to the local pub are often the order of the day.
Dine in a Restaurant Every Day
Our restaurant quality food is a delight and the communal dining experience makes everyone feel part of a big family during meal times. Wine or a drink of choice are available with the three course evening meals and all our produce is fresh and, where possible, locally sourced.
Our in-house chef and kitchen team make every effort to cater to the needs of the residents; the menu is planned weekly and residents are consulted along the way. What is on the menu, as well as portion size, are up for discussion with the chef. Special dietary needs, including vegetarian options, can easily be catered for.
The chef is happy to note that the plates always come back empty and with 3 meals a day, as well as tasty snacks in between, our residents are never short of something to nibble whether it is freshly backed cakes or other light snacks. Our chef enjoys nothing more than rolling out the barrel for birthdays and other celebrations with party food for guests and other residents.
Specialist Dementia Care in South Staffordshire
At Horse Fair Care Home we treat all our residents as individuals, tailoring our care to meet specialist and personal needs. Our dementia care strategy, Connect, is built around evidence-based practice. Our personal approach to dementia care pays attention to the unique needs of each individual at Horse Fair Care Home, aiming to ensure they live a happy and fulfilling life. For example, we carry out reminiscence therapy in which carers will pick particular props, such as a family picture or personal keepsake, and encourage residents to talk about their life and memories. The use of life stories is a popular approach with our staff.
Our staff are picked for their caring and empathetic nature and we find that staff with particularly big personalities are hugely appreciated by our Connect residents.
Central Rugeley Location and Easy Access
Horse Fair Care Home is right in the centre of Rugeley, making it is easy for friends and family to visit at any time. The home is only a couple of minutes walk from the station.
