At the Glade, we celebrate life and make sure the people we support do too. We do this by treating everyone as individuals, and always tailoring our services and support to meet their needs. These needs vary. We provide high dependency care services for older people in need of lots of support or for those living with dementia, as well as providing accommodation and support for people looking for residential care.
We believe every one of the individuals we support deserves dignity, choice and independence. For us, recognising individuality means listening to what people tell us and ensuring every day is thoroughly enjoyable. Our approach includes jointly written care plans designed to help us learn about personal likes and dislikes as well as helping to set care and rehabilitative goals encouraging independence. We help the people we support keep up community links and welcome those visits from family and friends that can be so important.
We offer a wide variety of care options from short- and long-term residential care to high dependency , dementia care as well as services for adults with severe disabilities or mental health needs.
We constantly strive to provide a consistent and high-quality service. We do this through our staff. We recruit motivated and compassionate people, then develop, manage and invest heavily in their training so that they not only do an excellent job but love their jobs, too.
Our Residential Care
Our staff can provide day to day help like washing, dressing, having meals, continence care, assisted eating and drinking and moving around the home. Special activities are also offered to help residents to stay mobile, active and independent. We also provide a more specialised care service on request to suit residents who have a severe disability, a serious long-term condition, dementia or very restricted mobility.
The activity programmes provided by our care teams are tailored to meet peoples residential care needs and capabilities – and are thoroughly enjoyed! These include gardening, baking, outings, gentle exercise, pet care and life-skills work. Other specialist activities such as reminiscence therapy, music therapy and complimentary therapies are also a part of our activities programmes.
Respite Care & Short Breaks
Everyone deserves time out. Whether you care for a relative or are in need of care yourself, taking a break from your usual routine can do the world of good.
As a carer you can relax, knowing that your relative, friend or patient is in a safe, welcoming environment with expert care tailored to their needs. A respite stay at the glade care home gives many people the opportunity to enjoy time with friendly and welcoming staff and residents.
Respite care is ideal for those looking for convalescence, either following a hospital stay or an illness. Many people also arrange a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice for them as their new home.
At the Glade Care Home we also provide End of Life as well as a Palliative care tailored to suit each resident’s requirements and requests. As the end is inevitable at some point for all of us, it is hoped that we can provide a dignified and peaceful environment that is facilitated with the highest standards of service. Our staff are all trained using nationally recognised guidelines to provide residents at this stage with 24 hour care, offering sensit.
Requests can be made by residents at any time during a residency to introduce End of Life care so that we can work together with other medical professionals and therapies to treat residents’ medical condition until such time as it can be changed to End of Life care where we try to help manage a resident’s pain levels but we also try to ease other distressing conditions, while providing psychological, spiritual and social support for them and their family members.
There are now nearly 850,000 people living within the United Kingdom with a diagnosis of dementia.
Some people who receive a diagnosis of dementia are able to live independently at home with support from a relative, friend or paid carer and may never need to go into a care home but for those that do, we want to make sure that the experience is as close as possible to the care that the person would have received at home.
Staff within our walls receive training to help them to support people living with dementia in our care home. They spend time learning about the different types of dementia that the person may have and how they might best support the resident through person centered approaches as well as learning about a range of interventions that may help to reduce any distress and promote well-being.
Finding the ideal care home is a daunting task but seeking help and advice can make the process easier and help you to make the best decision possible for yourself or a loved one.
We strive to make life at the Glade as stimulating and fulfilling as possible and are committed to ensuring independence, dignity and choice in every aspect of daily life.
From carers to activities coordinators and cooks, our compassionate staff are all trained to use a person centred approach and spend time getting to know every individual in order to learn what they like and what is important to them.
Everyone has different interests and abilities, so what can be considered a ‘meaningful activity’ will be different for each individual.
For some, gardening or playing croquet outdoors could be the perfect way to spend a day while others may find equal enjoyment in making a cup of tea and reminiscing about days gone by.
The Glade is an individual independent Care Home where the care really matters, we can respond quickly and don’t have share holders to keep happy. Chris and Claire the owners work daily in the home.

Our activities staff get to know what stimulates, engages and gives purpose to each individual and plan group and one-to-one activities based on feedback from residents and knowledge of their personal interests.
We strive to ensure that all food served at our homes is nutritious, varied and tastes fantastic. Menus are created using feedback from residents and we aim to cater for everyone’s personal tastes.
The environment we live in has a significant impact on our happiness and well-being. The home has a unique look and feel but all are designed to be warm, comfortable and stylish places to live in, with outdoor spaces, that are kept beautifully maintained and set up for both relaxation and summer activities.
We know that family and friends are very important to the people we support. That’s why we always warmly welcome visitors and encourage them to take part in activities and home events. We encourage family and friends to dine with our residents and sample the great food.
