Our Proud Care Home in Hatfield
Care Services Offered: Residential Care, Dementia Care and Respite Care
Manager: Julie Ricci
Care Quality Commission Rating: Good in all Categories
Situated on St Albans Road East on the outskirts of Hatfield, Acacia Mews Care Home is a high-quality residential and dementia care home and easily reached from the M25. It is well respected throughout Hertfordshire and has recently gained an overall Care Quality Commission rating of Good. There are three floors of good size bedrooms, all with flat screen TVs and walk-in, en-suite showers. The top floor has suites which are equipped with kitchenettes, suitable for couples who like a little more independence.
Our residential nursing home is welcoming, comfortable and companionable and we work hard to settle in all our residents as quickly as possible. Family members are encouraged to visit as much as they like and join in with all the activities. We have regular consultation meetings with residents and families about the direction that home life should take.
Our lounges are sociable places where our residential care home really comes to life. Residents can take part in organised activities, play a board game, enjoy an aperitif, or simply chat over a cup of coffee and a slice of the chef’s freshly baked cake. At the same time there are quiet rooms where residents can enjoy the calmer atmosphere with a book or newspaper.
To see what we get up to you might want to view our dedicated Facebook that is kept updated with all the activities and goings on at Acacia Mews, or call our friendly manager, Julie Ricci on 01707 278160. Take a look and see why we are considered the finest care homes in Hatfield.
At Acacia Mews Care Home we know how important an active lifestyle is for the well-being of our residents, both physically and mentally. We have a dedicated team of Activity Coordinators devoted to planning a lively activities schedule, which could be something they’ve never done before, such as:
Making origami swans
Getting messy with clay
Playing roulette – don’t worry, it’s only plastic money!
Planting out beetroot
Hatching out chicks — we’re not hens, we have an incubator!
We really love our enclosed courtyard. It’s a charming spot to take a break in the fresh air with a cup of tea and a book, or to get those green fingers dirty by working in the raised beds.
We are well connected to the local Hatfield and St Albans communities; groups, schools and societies are often invited to visit and there are regular trips out to local sites of heritage interest, as well as shopping trips to nearby Hatfield town centre and visits to cafés, churches in St Albans, garden centres and pubs for lunch.
Family and friends can keep in touch with what is going on in the home through our new Facebook page, which shows the day’s events and tells you what is coming up at our retirement home.
Our catering team takes pride in the choice of delicious, well considered and finely executed meals. Our food is nutritious, fun and seasonal. We use fresh and locally Hertfordshire sourced ingredients and even grow our own garden herbs, something that gives everyone a connection with the food they eat. Our policy of “following the food” means our kitchen team get instant feedback from the residents.
We serve a good choice of wines with the evening meal. After all, it is the main social occasion of the day and we like to make it special by enjoying an aperitif as well. In between mealtimes, there is a plentiful supply of freshly baked cakes, something which goes down rather well with residents and their guests. Afternoon tea in the garden is always popular and if you would like to join us we will bake a cake!
