About the Home
The Alexian Brothers Care Centre provides long-term care for 74 people who require residential and nursing care. There is also a 17 place day centre on site. Our day care centre provides everything from hot meals and a few hours entertainment, to trips and assistance with shopping. We can also help to arrange with professionals such as visits to the chiropodists and physiotherapist.
Quality in care
We provide the very best quality in care to each and every one of our residents. We are proud to report that we have a good CQC report and have achieved accreditation for Dignity in Care, Dementia and Gold Standard for Quality in End of Life Care.
And a little more…
We are more than just a care home and day centre, we are a community, we know every resident and their family and we understand their likes and dislikes. We are the home to 74 people. Many a time residents comment that it is like living in ‘a very nice hotel’. Visitors to the centre comment on how calm and friendly our home is – that nothing is too much trouble. We think, like us, they enjoy the fact that there is a lot of laughter wherever you go. The home feels alive.
All are welcome at Alexian House
Of course, we never forget our founders, the Alexian Brothers and pastoral care is an important part of everyday life. We have our own resident priest who delivers mass and communion on a daily basis – residents choose whether they would like to attend.However, although we are a Roman Catholic care home, residents are welcomed from all denominations and we ensure that all religious needs are fulfilled.
