Alder House Care Home in Nottingham
Care Services Offered: Residential Care, Dementia Care and Respite Care
Manager: Denise Mclauchlan
Care Quality Commission Rating: Good in all Categories
Alder House is a Nottingham care home based in Nuthall and quite an exceptional place, even if we say so ourselves! It’s noticeable as soon as you cross the threshold and meet the residents and staff. The sense of togetherness is so apparent that you cant help but notice it, it is something we have worked hard to cultivate and are really proud of.
Our retirement home is just off the A610 Nottingham Road in Nuthall, adjoining one of the entrances to Broxtowe County Park and a three-minute walk from the Phoenix tram stop for trams into Nottingham. Our residential, dementia and respite care for residents is of the highest quality and focused on enhancing each and every resident’s well-being. We have fun and you will find that settling in happens quicker than you might expect. Companionship abounds at our Nottingham care home and the support helps everyone get along just fine.
All bedrooms are spacious and fully en-suite with walk-in showers and 3/4 size beds as standard. We also have a handful of companion suites with their own small kitchenette and living room, ideal for couples who like that extra bit of independence. All our interiors are well furnished and comfortable and sociable places.
We pay special attention to our expert dementia care. We have a café full of objects from yesteryear which remind residents of the past and how times have changed. This place is popular with guests and is alive with chatter for large parts of the day. There are no shortage of talking points with the decor used in our therapeutic reminiscences, which in combination with our music is used as a key therapeutic tool.
The volunteering charity Attend works with us to ensure that local volunteers are involved with our nationally acclaimed activity programme. Just take a look at our dedicated Facebook, which is updated regularly with all the goings on!
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our residential home manager Sally Tebbett or our front of house team on 0115 975 8110. Feel free to call by and take a look around our Nottingham retirement home, and perhaps meet some residents and ask them what they think?
And that’s because we make it so. We are very proud of our extensive and secluded gardens and love to be out there. Here is a list of what we do, not the gardener:
Sweep the paths
Fill up the bird feeders
Water the plants
Watch the birds
Decide if the lettuces are ready for a salad lunch
Chat to the chickens – any eggs today?
Stroke a bunny (not one that munches our lettuces)
And of course have a nice cup of tea
So you can see that there is plenty going on. The same is true of what happens inside the building. There’s a lot you can do in a chair besides watching the telly: ‘Oomph’ exercises, playing football, balloon tennis or dominoes with your granddaughter, for instance. Life within our residential care home is always stimulating and varied. We recognise the importance of preventing falls and so have a specially designed programme of regular core strength exercises. Our lead Recreation Activity Coordinator has been recognised nationally for her high-octane activities and sheer personality.
Alder House is alive with chatter, and guests often comment on the companionship that life here offers. Staff, residents and guests all mingle freely, while our popular Film Club enjoys daily viewings in our cinema: old movie classics are hugely popular. For others, it is our Sunday Pub Club for which nothing is better than a pie and a pint.
We get out a lot too in our own minibus. Have a look at our well-stocked Facebook. There’s too much to mention here!
We like to keep up our standards! We get the best china out for special occasions and the chef and team don’t disappoint with what goes with it. The same is true for all mealtimes in fact, as we have food that is freshly prepared each day on the premises and carefully considered for its nutritional content. A choice of menus is available and all dietary requirements are catered for. We’re good at tempting poor appetites too.
Meal times are an important part of life at Alder House and greatly anticipated by the residents. We never forget that and you can often find chef chatting to residents about their likes and dislikes and what can be improved. Mealtimes are when we all come together and socialise, perhaps with the aid of a glass of wine, which is always served with meals. Some of our residents even meet beforehand for an aperitif – in the garden if it’s nice. Why don’t you come and join them? Guests are always welcome!
