The Chase is a modern purpose built home situated in the town of Watford in Hertfordshire. The home provides a warm and friendly environment for residents and the staff are committed to meeting the residents’ expectations at every level. The home is tastefully decorated and has a lovely courtyard garden which is easily accessible to everyone.
The home offers a wide range of facilities, to give residents a full, varied and enjoyable lifestyle. Trained staff are always on hand to provide assistance where required, allowing residents to enjoy everything the home has to offer whilst promoting respect, privacy and independence.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at The Chase. 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:
- Regular trips out
- Cinema club
- Silent disco
- Memory café
- Musical bingo
- Dominos evening
- Arts and crafts
- Afternoon teas
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.
The home is situated in the town of Watford in Hertfordshire and is centrally located within walking distance from the Cassiobury Park, one of Watford’s most popular attractions. There are local shops, a pharmacy and the doctor’s surgery is a stone’s throw away from the home. The town centre is also about a 5 minute drive so all amenities are on hand with good links to public transport including major road routes such as the M25 and M1 motorways.
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 three floors, our 110 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 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 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 exercising to taking tea.
