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 25th February 2020......The facilities are excellent and throughout her time at Abbots Leigh, my mother experienced the highest quality of care.
We were impressed by the effective way that the nursing staff worked with local GPs and provided a caring, supportive environment that she appreciated and valued.
Abbots Leigh also benefits from an active community life providing a stimulating environment. In her last days, we were impressed by the compassion she received with
individual carers remaining at her bedside. Abbots Leigh helped us greatly with the practical and emotional difficulties of the period leading to her death. We would have no
hesitation in recommending Abbots Leigh to anyone seeking a nursing home for an elderly relative.
Testimonial from family 21st December 2019......Just a quick note to say how much we appreciate the effort your staff put into Abbots Leigh Manor to ensure there is
plenty of interaction and stimulation for the residents. We have noticed a significant improvement in our mother's mental wellbeing since arriving in Abbots Leigh - Thank you.
Testimonial from family 16th December 2019......We looked at three nursing homes that day and were in no doubt that we wanted our mother to go to Abbots Leigh
Manor. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. Our greatest wish is that everyone at the end of their life may be so fortunate to find a place which
offers so much knowledge, experience, care and compassion.

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.
