Welcome to Goatacare Manor Care Home

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.

All single occupancy rooms include a medical grade, adjustable bed where needed and many have ensuite bathroom facilities. Suites and companion rooms are also available because we believe it is important, where possible, for couples to have an opportunity to stay together and have support navigating their changing needs together in a warm, supportive environment.

A variety of rooms styles are available, some are cosy and charming as they are restored to preserve the natural beauty of our original buildings, others are brand new, located in our new extension. 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. We provide rooms for our residents based on their individual needs and preferences, please feel free to book an appointment for viewing.

In addition to our rooms and our facilities, our nursing home is a comprehensively equipped for any urgent or medical needs and is registered under the terms of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 with the Care Quality Commission; we are also a proud member of the Registered Nursing Home Association

We recognise that moving into a care home is a major life event and therefore deem it essent...
