Welcome to Goatacre Manor Care Centre

Our care home goes above and beyond because it matters

 

Goatacre Manor Care Centre has been a family run and professionally operated nursing and residential home for over 30 years. What began as a small home, with just three residents has grown to a medium sized home with a stellar reputation. John and Margaret O’Dea (RGN) strived to create a care facility that would honour and uphold their values - respect, love and dignity for all residents and their friends and families.

Our holistic approach to residential and nursing care makes Goatacre Manor a truly exceptional home away from home. Expertly balancing health care needs with social stimulation, our staff is second to none. Not only are necessary health needs met (and exceeded) but our additional activities create a strong sense of community and companionship. Family and friends are encouraged to visit and participate in the various activities hosted within our little sanctuary.

To accommodate the needs of our residents, our nursing home offers a variety of facilities to ensure the utmost comfort for every resident. Margaret’s café is the perfect setting to visit loved ones over a cup of tea while over looking our lovely gardens. Many residents enjoy walks around our private gardens with visiting family members as part of their daily routine. The garden paths are wheelchair accessible and have benches placed along the way if a rest is needed. The neighbouring Goatacre cricket club is a source well loved by our small community and our residents can are able to catch from the comfort of their own home. Residents enjoy regular cinema nights in our newest wing or our comfy lounge – popcorn and treats for all attendees! We also have an events room with views over the garden and cricket pitch.

We are open to new residents and respite care for residential and nursing care.

Whatever type of room you prefer we have something that will speak to you and we love it when our residents bring their own personal items and home comforts to make them feel that they are in their own home. Every room has plenty of space to store personal items or display mementos.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

Review: I am very pleased we chose to make Goatacre Manor Care Centre my mum's permanent home for the following reasons: the staff are kind, caring, gentle, well-selected and well trained. Whatever their role in the team they treat my mum with respect and recognise her individuality. Above all, they are prepared to listen to any concerns and work with relatives and service users to achieve best possible outcomes. The team there have remained outwardly cheerful and amenable despite the ever-changing demands of this long covid pandemic.

Ruth Calthrop - Residents daughter

Review: Such kind people throughout, very personable and helpful. Superb level of personal care and attention to detail. The whole place is immaculate and never smells of anything untoward. Lots of stimulation and beautiful gardens, which are carefully thought out to give everybody lovely natural views. Nursing staff are so efficient and on the ball with all levels of care. Administration is so well organised, and their receptionist always makes you feel welcome, and she goes out of her way to facilitate visits and families requests. This is the third home for my grandma, and we won’t be moving her again as we have struck gold! Thank you so much, everyone.

Beth Henly - Grandaughter of resident

Review: This care home has to be one of the best; all staff and carers are second to none. The care that is given cannot be faulted, it is almost, no, it is like a family home. I am so glad that my wife is in this care home; she is treated with the most caring, dignity and love.

Terry Hannay - Husband of resident
