Meet the Home Manager and team at the home for a cup of tea in one of our safe visiting rooms or garden area, or call us and we’ll be happy to talk you through the different facilities in the home and discuss your specific care needs.
Acer Court Care Home is situated in Nuthall, off the A610 Nottingham Road, just a five-minute drive from junction 26 of the M1. Our home is adjacent to one of the entrances to Broxtowe Country Park and has been offering residential and dementia care to the city of Nottingham since its launch in 2012. It also offers shorter term respite care, when those looking after a loved one are in need a break.
We have earned a reputation as an excellent residential care home, benefiting from a good relationship with the local community and with Nottingham’s healthcare professionals. Our most recent Care Quality Commission report rated Acer Court as being Outstanding in the category for Responsiveness. Faith groups and the national volunteering charity, Attend are regular contributors through their Friends of Care Homes programme.
Acer Court has three floors, each containing generously sized rooms with their own flat-screen TVs and en-suite showers. Our lounges are well equipped with everything you need for a happy home life, but the most important ‘equipment’ is our ethos of compassionate care which focusses on the well-being of all our residents. We know that moving into a home is all about change and that can be difficult when you get older, but we do our best to make sure that everyone settles in well and quickly, and that we set families’ minds at rest.
We have a lovely garden which is well stocked with raised beds, potting sheds and benches. Our south facing courtyard is nicely warmed by the sun and parasols are at the ready to shade those taking a tea or coffee.
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 in the home, or call our friendly manager Linda Simpson on 0115 977 7370 if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a visit to our home.
We use the Daily Sparkle, a reminiscence magazine, to brighten up the day. It has big, bold print and acts to jog memories with its tales of bygone days and sets people talking about their lives. It’s just one of the ways we get our residents stimulated and involved with one another. Our ‘ladies in pink’, our Activity Coordinators, who have a pink uniform, concentrate on activities that help create the greatest sense of well-being in our residents, whether through mental, physical or social stimulus.
If you look at our Facebook page, you’ll see what we do. You might think we do a lot of dancing! But dancing is now one of the best exercises – it’s official! And those little Irish dancers were an inspiration to get those knees up! We also have weekly yoga sessions and chair exercises for those who cannot get up onto the dance floor. And was that a football in the corridor on one of the Facebook pages? Is that allowed?
We like to get out of the home too and you will often see us out and about visiting garden centres, shops, pubs, theatres, parks and even a local festival, or just going for a stroll in the countryside. And if you’re coming to visit, which we very much encourage, make sure you’re turned out well or all those ladies with their lovely painted and manicured nails will put you to shame.
Yes we do have tea outside when it’s warm enough. We share the garden with our neighbour Alder House, so residents from each home often meet up there. Our three meals a day are served in our spacious dining room. All meals are made fresh every day from locally sourced ingredients, and our diverse menus are shaped around the preferences of our residents. The chef will always act on the feedback that comes back from the diners and if there is something they really fancy, then we’ll do our best to see that it’s put on the menu.
Mealtimes are often highlights of the day. Residents share a good, restaurant standard of dining and like to chat about what they have been up to. We like to make sure special occasions are always marked and residents get to pick their favourite birthday cake when it’s their turn for the Happy Birthday song. Guests can feel free to come to birthday parties and at any other time they like, for that matter. Come and see and taste our healthy food for yourself!
