Alexandra is centrally located within the town of Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, and provides residential care, nursing care, care for under 65s, and care for people living with dementia. The home prides itself on its excellent eating experience and special dietary requirements can easily be accommodated.
Specialist dietary requirements met
Alexandra is situated in the heart of the town close to Hemel Hempstead Hospital and Gadebridge Park. The home is surrounded by a relaxing garden, featuring flower beds and a patio – a wonderful place to relax with friends and family. There are plenty of communal areas which provide space for group and one-to-one activities.
The home is run by a strong team whose priority is the resident’s happiness and peace of mind. Families feel very at home when visiting and they enjoy the stability of the care team – some of which have worked there a number of years. There is a wonderful, calm atmosphere within the home.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Alexandra. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Musical movement
- Nail therapy
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Our meal experience is excellent, with our chef and catering team working hard to create meals that are both nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients. A varied meal choice is offered, and special dietary requirements are catered for.
Alexandra is located in the large town of Hemel Hempstead. With a bus station located close to the home, the neighbouring towns and villages are easily accessible. London is only a short train ride away and there are a selection of lovely parks close by with plenty of eating out areas available.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Arranged over three floors, our 75 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home. All our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
