Care Quality Commission Report

Life at Northlands House

The care we provide is centred around a full and active life, and we ensure there's something engaging and enjoyable for our residents to do every day.

Our activities

We have a dedicated activities co-ordinator who chats with residents to find out about their hobbies and interests. During their stay residents are encouraged to pursue their own interests, or perhaps try something new with a group activity. These are a great way to meet other residents as well as improving appetites and sleeping patterns.

Gentle gardening, puzzles, games, arts and crafts and sing-alongs are just some of the activities our residents enjoy. Friends and family are welcome to come along at any time and join in the fun. Local entertainers often pop by to perform, we hold a summer fete and arrange regular days out to local farms and garden centres.

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

How soon can I move in?

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
