Horse Fair Care Home in Rugeley
Care Services Offered: Residential Care, Dementia Care and Respite Care
Horse Fair Care Home in Rugeley is a well-established community of elderly residents from across Staffordshire. We offer residential care and respite care for those seeking support, as well as a dedicated dementia care suite. Situated in the centre of Rugeley town means that local amenities are close by and our connection with local volunteer groups assures a respected place within the Rugeley community.
We make a point of celebrating the lives of our residents who all have a stake in the direction of life within our care home. Families and friends are encouraged to give us their views too and, more formally, can join one of our committees. It is by concentrating on the residents in a holistic way that we get the best out of them and offer the best elderly care. We are minds as well as bodies, and to that end we have an energetic recreation and leisure team who devise a wide programme of activities and social engagements for residents and families.
Bedrooms are of generous proportions, come with en-suite, walk-in showers and flat-screen TVs. Our housekeepers keep the rooms in beautiful order and will always make sure that any personal ornaments and keepsakes are carefully dusted!
Our Butterfly Café is just one of the spots where residents enjoy the companionship of others over a cup of tea. There’s a good variety of lounges to choose from too, some where clubs and societies meet and some where you can just be quiet and enjoy a daily newspaper or magazine.
To see what we get up to you in our nursing home you might want to view our dedicated Facebook that is kept up to date with all the activities and goings on in the home, or call our friendly care manager Gemma Bertelsen on 01889 571980 if you have any questions or would like to arrange for a visit to our lovely residential care home.
Our full-time Activity Coordinators ensure that residents have the opportunity to enjoy their days to the full. We are lucky in that we have a grand piano, and there is nothing we like better than having a good old singsong.
Other things we might do include:
• Flower arranging with a local shop
• Knitting (Come on gents, you can have a go too!)
• Shopping trips into Rugeley
• Spending time in the sensory garden
• Going down the local pub
• Walking in the local park
• Going out to Staffordshire heritage sites
Residents are free to come and go as they please; Rugeley town centre is only a few minutes’ walk away from our care home. But we are good at organising trips out in the minibus that take residents on excursions further afield across Staffordshire.
In the warmer months residents make great use of the outside patio area, which is completely enclosed for privacy, a perfect place for outdoor exercise or just a nice cup of tea. This area includes a brand new sensory garden, designed to provide a variety of sensory stimuli with its aromatic plants.
Popular among our activities are the reminiscence sessions in which residents look back over the years and discuss major historical events both local and international. They very much enjoy remembering where they were at key times and we often find friendships forming and strengthening during these sessions. This is very popular with our residents who live with dementia.
We know how important it is for our residents to keep in touch with family and friends, so we provide free Wi-Fi throughout the home. Computers are available for Skype, email or just browsing. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook pages!
Family are welcome at any time and this means we often enjoy the company of guests for dinner, so that our dining room feels more like a large family room, where there is lively chatter about the day’s events over a glass of wine or beer. Wine or a drink of choice are available with lunch and the evening meal and all our produce is fresh and, where possible, locally sourced from across Staffordshire and follows the seasons.
Our Horse Fair in-house chef and kitchen team make every effort to cater to the needs of the residents, who are consulted on the weekly menu planning. Special dietary needs, including vegetarian options are never a problem.
The chef tells us that the plates always come back empty and with three meals a day, as well as tasty snacks in between, our residents will certainly never go hungry. Birthdays and other celebrations are always taken seriously and are a good excuse for doing that extra special something to accompany the good wishes.
Staff, residents, and friends of Horse Fair recently took part in a five-day-long challenge to walk a combined 100 miles each day to commemorate Sir Captain Tom Moore’s incredible life. With the warmer days upon us, spirits were high amongst the walkers who shared their mileage to their Facebook page. The first day saw staff…
