On the ground floor residents may read, watch television or pursue the other recreational activities in the three Reception rooms. The spacious dining room is pleasantly situated off the main foyer and retains all of its original charm.
All bedrooms are centrally heated and have a television, wash hand basin and emergency facilities installed for the comfort of residents. The rooms are furnished to a very high standard, and residents may, if they wish, bring their own furniture. Both single and double rooms are available. A chair lift serves the first floor accommodation.
We actively encourage short stays and holidays and offer a complete day care service from 8:00am to 6:00pm (or by arrangement) daily. All the facilities of Victoria House are open to short stay and day care residents without exception.
Finally, we appreciate that decision to place a loved one into a Retirement Home came be a difficult and, sometimes, worrying prospect for a relative. We believe that our experience over many years enables us to minimise these concerns, although, we are only too aware from that experience that they do exist as a reality in the minds of many people. You may like to consider, therefore, before making a final decision to visit the home, in the first instance and arrange a trial stay of up to fourteen days.
Rates are charged from the current Social Services rates with additional top up fees if necessary. Should any assistance be required in claiming the necessary benefits, or completing the necessary forms, then we shall be only too pleased to offer guidance on the matter and advise of the current limits in regard to, not only residents capital levels, but current maximum levels of support.
Please, in the case of any queries, or any request, either write to the Home, or telephone 01253 892400. Viewing arrangements may be made with the Head of Care, Mrs Pauline Brown – R.M.A Level 4.
We look forward to your enquiry and invite you to view the excellent facilities we have to offer.
