Personalised care focused on maintaining independence and enhancing lifestyle
What is residential care?
Often people move into our Abingdon care home as they have struggled to cope and stay safe living in their own home independently. This may be due to their changing care needs or because their home is not designed to support their aging years.
Before living with us, and often despite regular visits and support from loving family and friends, many of our cherished residents have found themselves becoming more isolated over time – lacking the companionship of people their own age, as well as the mental and physical stimulation of accessible hobbies and interests.
Discreet and kind residential care around the clock
At Bridge House, we pride ourselves on being one of the leading residential care homes in Abingdon. Our dedicated and trained team members deliver loving, high-quality care 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year within the comfort and safety of our beautiful home.
There is an indoor garden area for residents to enjoy on each floor giving wonderful views of the main garden and overlooking Abbey Park. These feature living plants for residents to water and maintain and bedrooms on the ground floor have direct access to a private courtyard/patio and the main gardens. All our residents private rooms have en-suite wetroom complete with shower, toilet and wash basin.
With our kind and caring team on hand throughout the day and night, including our skilled registered nurses, and our sensitive and respectful approach to care, we are able to provide support and reassurance to our cherished residents whenever they need it, as well as provide much-needed peace of mind to loved ones.
Our team members are skilled at delivering kind and discreet care, which is personalised to each resident’s needs, likes, dislikes and aspirations for the future, coupled with gentle encouragement so each person can remain as independent as possible. This is just one of the qualities which sets us apart from other residential care homes in Abingdon.
Our dedicated dementia care environment is designed with bright colours and interactive activity stations including a ‘Snoozelen’ sensory room, cinema room, clear signage throughout and a family room for relatives to stay overnight, if they so wish.
Whilst the level of care is specifically tailored to each resident, it may include personal care, taking medication, relishing a home-cooked meal, enjoying one of the many activities and events on offer, or socialising whilst developing new hobbies.
Within our beautiful home, we have a range of features and areas such as a bistro, cinema room, private dining room and a hair and beauty salon which support our cherished residents to not only spend their days in the comfort of a relaxing, warm and welcoming environment but also surrounded by opportunities to live life to the full. We also have some state-of-the-art technology for our residents to enjoy, including ‘Playlists for life’ headphones which stream personalised music playlists, virtual reality headsets and of course wifi throughout the building.
Where family and friends are always welcome
Family and friends remain a vital part of many of our residents’ lives and we welcome them with open arms at any time at our residential care home in Abingdon. Whilst we’re there to take care of each resident, their loved ones are able to spend quality time with them, enjoying a meal together, chatting over a freshly made coffee in our bistro, taking part in an activity or simply catching up in one of our quiet areas .
We also understand at times, it can be difficult to see your loved one’s needs changing or the effect their health condition has on them. This is why we’re also always there for family and friends to have a chat over a cuppa, bring you up to speed on the exciting things your loved one has been involved with and provide general reassurance and guidance. Our regular carer events are also the perfect time to receive professional advice on things such as funding care and understanding dementia.
A home for life
We are proud of our ability to provide residential care, dementia care, nursing care, respite care, and end of life care within our home. This provides flexibility for people, whether that’s initially for those who prefer a short-term stay or day care whilst they get to know us and settle in before a permanent move or, as someone’s needs increase over time.
Our specialist dementia trained team members and registered nurses are there to provide more intense and acute care and support where needed, meaning our residents should never find themselves in a situation where we are unable to care for them if their needs change.
We understand that navigating the care system can be confusing and it’s sometimes difficult to know where to turn and what to do for the best. With this in mind, the team at our residential care home in Abingdon are on hand to offer guidance, chatting through options and supporting you. Contact us now to speak to a member of our caring team.
