The bright, welcoming purpose built accommodation at Home Close is laid out over two floors with a number of attractive wings. Each wing contains lounge and dining areas as well as kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The light, airy bedrooms are decorated to a high standard and exceptionally well furnished, but we encourage our residents to bring items of their own furniture and possessions with them so that their room can become truly their own.
The latest addition to the home is a new garden-based Visiting Pod, which has been constructed to provide a space where residents can stay connected with their loved-ones.
The temporary garden cabin-style structure is equipped with two entrance points, a Perspex screen to separate visitors from residents and an intercom to make communicating easy. The room is also equipped with heating, insulation, fire safety measures and nurse call buttons. To book a visit in the pod, please contact the home manager.
Home Close is in a quiet location on the outskirts of Cambridge yet within easy reach of the A14 and served by good public transport links. It is set within its own large landscaped grounds that are bordered by many mature trees, creating a private peaceful environment. In good weather, many of our residents like to walk in the grounds or sit and take tea under the shade of spreading branches.
As well as the extensive lawns, there are many shrub and flower borders which continually change with the seasons, providing interest to residents and visitors alike.
A wide range of activities are organised at the home, including:
