Home Setting

      • As a resident you have your own single room, all of which are comfortably furnished and carpeted, and have wash basins with hot and cold water.
      • We have twenty-one rooms.  Each room has a wash-basin with hot and cold water, two rooms also have en-suite facilities. One of the rooms is suitable for a couple.
      • All bedrooms are connected to the 24 hour emergency alarm call system.
      • There is room for additional small items of personal furniture and other keepsakes and mementoes to make your room your personal space.
      • Our residents can have their own TV and phone in their room.
      • All rooms have a 24 hour emergency call system.
      • Our main lounge is spacious to allow residents to sit and chat, read, or watch television according to preference, and we have an attached conservatory which provides a light and airy additional space. On good weather days our spacious garden allows residents to enjoy the open air and sunshine.
      • Our dining room is comfortably appointed to allow residents to share your meals in a friendly atmosphere.
      • We have a varied home-cooked menu, which is prepared in our modern kitchen, with a choice at each meal.
      • We listen to resident's comments on what you like and try to include this where possible.
      • As a resident you can welcome visitors who can share a meal with us if we are warned in advance.

      Care Needs Assessment

      Making sure you get the support you need

      Each elderly person is an individual, and for each resident at Burrell Mead an individual assessment is made of your needs, so that your care is carefully tailored. This can cover:





      Peoples' needs change over time, and our staff ensure that care plans are regularly checked, discussed with you, and updated where necessary.

      We can provide short term respite care as well as long term residential care, and again this is worked out with you and your family.

      We have a modern computerised care management system that ensures staff always have accurate information for each resident.

      And we arrange various activities through the week which you can choose to take part in - more details  below:

      Spiritual Care

      We aim to have a spiritual ethos to our home. Our board is made up of members of local churches and we aim to have a Sunday worship service each week. Our local Catholic priest also comes in regularly.

      Burrell Mead is a Not-for-Profit Organisation. We own our own buildings, so residents' fees are channelled directly into providing the best care possible at an affordable rate
