  • Life at Kingston Court

    Life at Kingston Court

    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.

  • Lifestyle

    Lifestyle

    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.

  • Meals

    Meals

    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.
