Key Facts

Our Home

Kingsley Court is a modern, purpose-built nursing home, tastefully decorated and providing a warm, friendly environment for its residents.

The home is designed to provide a secure and safe environment. Lifts provide access to the residents’ rooms which are arranged over three floors.  All bedrooms have en-suite facilities and are equipped with a television point.  Residents are very welcome to bring personal possessions, such as a favourite table, chair and ornaments.  There are a variety of lounge areas, some with TV’s where residents can entertain family and friends or just sit in quiet contemplation.  There is also a secure garden area.

There is a wide range group and one-to-one activities to suit all residents. We firmly believe that activities are at the heart of good care and we aim to enable all staff to provide meaningful activities for our residents.
