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..
also visit regularly. Our hairdresser visits 3 days during the week.
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!”
Testimonial from family 11th August 2017.............. Set in delightful countryside, staffed by brilliant people, where every one of my mum's needs are catered for. The food is of a high standard, and all in all, a superb facility for elderly people.
Testimonial from the Daughter of one of our residents, 10th June 2017......... 'I can't tell you how much I was ALWAYS so relieved to know that Mum was being so well cared for - we knew from the minute we walked into Abbots Leigh in March 2015 to have a look around that the friendly positive atmosphere was just what we were after and we didn't ever regret our decision'!!
You can now find Abbots Leigh on Facebook, we will be posting our weekly activities, photographs and various other information about Manor House, send us a friend request and keep up to date with what's happening at the Manor.

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. More often than not 'self-funders' are entitled to receive the Registered Nursing
Care Contribution - currently £156.25
per week - which is paid by the NHS.
Other benefits and
payments may be available including Continuing
Healthcare (CHC) funding which is available for individuals with complex healthcare needs. Local authorities
also offer financial assistance
to people with capital and savings below £23,500. Our financial manager, Christine Bowers, is happy to offer informal advice to prospective residents and families in connection with all funding issues - please feel free to call her on 01275 374669.
