Situated on the outskirts of Carlisle is Kingston Court, a three-story light and modern home offering nursing care, residential care and dementia support.
The focus is on person-centred care and our friendly and approachable nursing and support teams work hard to create a lively and engaging atmosphere within the home. Eighty ensuite rooms can be furnished and personalised by each resident to ensure they feel at home, with ample space in which to meet with family and friends.
Our experienced cooks pride themselves on providing home cooked nutritious dishes, with a four week rolling menu. Alternative choices are available with each meal and we are able to cater for specialist diets. We offer: Nursing Care, Residential Care, Dementia Care and Respite Care
Our three-story light and modern home is a base for encouraging our residents to maintain their activities and hobbies and have a broad range of interests and skills to support where needed. We have a full programme of engaging events and activities, and we enjoy regular visits from local singers and entertainers.
We strive to provide an environment that feels personal to each resident, encouraging a healthy, safe and enriching lifestyle where individuals maintain their independence.
Our residents will be able to keep active and continue their individual interests as they would at home. Specialist Lifestyle Support workers are located within each home, planning in advance a full programme of engaging events and projects to promote social interaction while also targeting mental and physical stimulation for people living with us.
Our homes benefit from health and beauty treatments, baking, our dedicated male orientated “Men’s Sheds”, trips and many more. We try to engage with our local community as much as possible and have an open door policy for family and friends.
We recognise that mealtimes are a focal part of any day. Nutritional well-being is vital to maintaining a healthy mind and body. Our regularly reviewed menus with resident input, provide a well-balanced nutritious choice of food which also caters for people who require special diets. There is an alternative menu available just in case people would like a change. Drinks, snacks and nibbles including fruit are available through the day and the night.
We also welcome residents who like to bake, cook or help themselves when they would like. We can also cater for parties and celebrations for the people who live in our homes and their families and friends.
Our residents have a very busy month this October with lots of interesting events taking place, such as a DVD morning, ‘mad hatter’ hat making session, flower arranging, crosswords and bingo, cake decorating, dominoes and even the gentlemen will be having their very own pamper afternoon.
Kingston Court has a history of welcoming volunteers to the home to support the people who are cared for and live in the home. We are hugely grateful to all of our volunteers and we are proud to bring the community closer to the people living in the home through our volunteers.
