Welcome to Home Close. We provide person-centred nursing, residential, respite and dementia care. The entire team work hard to treat our residents like family as we work within their home.
We are lucky enough to be situated in a lovely area of the country on the outskirts of Cambridge and we’re proud of our facilities we offer to our residents. We have a specialist nursing team and the whole team always work to provide varied and engaging activities and compassionate care centred by respect, dignity and choice.
Whether you enjoy spending time with your new friends and relatives, rekindling the love of an old hobby or spending time in our many communal rooms, we will be delighted to make you feel welcome at Home Close.We look forward to seeing you soon.
We believe that our dedication to delivering the highest quality care to all our residents is what makes us stand out. Our attentive and thoughtful team of staff are committed to getting to know every resident individually so we can cater to their needs and fully support them to enjoy living their lives to their fullest potential.
We work with residents, their families and friends to create tailored care plans to ensure they receive the best care to suit their needs and preferences. Our ‘Resident of the Day’ initiative shines a regular spotlight on each resident to ensure that every aspect of their care and day-to-day life at the home is reviewed and adjusted as needed.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Home Close. 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:
- Quiz events
- Pamper days
- Musical entertainment and workshops
- Music and movement classes
- Sing-along sessions
- Nature watch
- Coffee pot mornings
- Excursions to garden centres
- Coffee mornings and luncheon trips
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 chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.
We have a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, and sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Located just a 20-minute drive from the centre of Cambridge, within easy reach of the A14 and served by good public transport links, the home is ideally situated for visiting and enjoying family days out, both in the prestigious city and its neighbouring villages.
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 two floors, our bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All our 72 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.
Our in-house hairdressing and beauty salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our vast gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from taking exercise to taking tea.
