Ladymead is located in a beautiful rural area of Wroughton. The home is only a short drive from Swindon Town Centre and there is easy access to local transport. The home has TV lounges and a quiet sitting room where residents can relax in quiet contemplation, or enjoy the company of others.
The care team is passionate about providing truly person-centred care and we always put the resident’s needs first. A lot of the staff members have been at the home a long time and residents like the reassurance of regular familiar faces. The home prides itself on its excellent meal experience and is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Ladymead. 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:
- Tractors shows
- Trained visiting dogs (PAT DOGS)
- Rabbit visits
- Garden centre trips
- Word games
- Use of Alexa and iPad
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 meets with all residents and all nurses complete a sheet regularly to notify the chef of any changes. The chef also regularly visits the dining room to chat with residents after meals and check everyone is happy. He also attends nutritional meetings with nursing teams monthly to look at any dietary needs and variations.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Located in the village of Wroughton and about two miles from the town, the home has easy access to public transport and motorways. Visitors to the area can enjoy local attractions such as Butterfly World or a visit to the garden centre. Barbury Castle is close by and there are local parks in the Old Town and Town Gardens.
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.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over two floors, our 35 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. The home contains five double rooms which are ideal for couples if required.
All of 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.
Our in-house hairdressing salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our beautiful gardens, bordered by flower beds, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
Every health and social care worker is undoubtedly a hero and the teams who work at every Healthcare Homes home and homecare branch were recognized...
