Making Abbots Leigh Manor Your Home
Our rooms are fully
furnished but we can normally make space for any items
of furniture a resident wishes
to bring with them and, within our locality, we are happy to collect these items. Residents are welcome to move
within the home if a preferred room becomes available and we have a number of very spacious rooms which are suitable for married couples. We don't have any visiting restrictions
and visitors are welcome to dine with residents at any time
(for which there is no charge).
Our residents can have their meals in their room if they
wish but we encourage everyone to come to the dining
room for lunch, if they can, as this is the main meal of the day. Choice is available at all meals and snacks or
drinks are available at any time of the day or night. Our bar, the ‘Manor bar’,
opens twice a week for pre-dinner drinks and for special occasions and light alcoholic refreshments are available at all mealtimes. We have a mobile shop
which sells toiletries, confectionery, cards
and so on.
Our activities team organise daily entertainment
and activities and our gardener
runs a weekly gardening club. We also have a large greenhouse and a sunny patio overlooking ornamental ponds, a beautiful rockery and expansive lawns. Residents who
want a change of scenery can enjoy a car ride
to local places of interest or attend our local church. Our activities team also helps with personal
shopping, outings, appointments and contact
with family and friends and we have a laptop computer which residents can use to Skype friends and relatives anywhere in the world. Our GPs visit at least twice a week and other healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapy, chiropodists, opticians etc. visit regularly. Our hairdresser visits 3 days during the week.
Testimonial from family 20th December 2017............We are really grateful to everyone at the Manor for the excellent level of care and support mum received from staff at all levels. It was a pleasure for us to visit mum knowing she was so well looked after and I will miss sharing Sunday lunch with mum and sitting in the sun in your wonderful grounds watching the birds.
Testimonial from family 7th December 2017......What you have at Abbots Leigh in your lovely building, is a very special blend of nursing excellence, a graceful and enriching atmosphere and above all abundant care in the true sense of the word - Sensitively applied.
Testimonial from family 19th October 2017...........“Dear Abbots Leigh Manor, Mum has now been at Abbots Leigh for exactly a week. I would like to say that, having visited a number of times over the last 7 days including Saturday and Sunday, how very impressed I have been by the whole experience. Every member of staff has been attentive and sympathetic to her situation, and taken note of the little things that might help her eat more, make life more comfortable and so promote recovery. Today she seemed in better health than I have seen her in for several weeks.”
Testimonial from family, 29th September 2017.............“Massively impressed with Abbots Leigh Nursing Home….. It’s a great place!”

Stays (Respite Care)
We offer respite care. This is may be to help someone recuperate
after a spell in hospital or to give family
carers a break. New friendships are made and
we often see respite residents more than once!
Our fees cover all the normal day-to-day needs
of our residents including care and attention,
food, laundry, entertainment, activities, and
local excursions etc.
Most of our residents fund their own care. Most 'self-funders' are eligible to receive the Registered Nursing
Care Contribution (FNC) - currently £156.25
per week - which is paid by the NHS.
Other benefits and
payments may be available including Continuing
Healthcare (CHC) funding for individuals with complex healthcare needs. Local authorities
also offer financial assistance
to people with assets and savings below £23,500. We are happy to offer informal advice in connection with all funding issues - please feel free to call us on 01275 374669.
