Waters View is a care home providing care and accommodation for up to fifteen older people who may also have dementia.
We offer either full time residential care or care on a respite basis, trial days are also offered when all facilities can be used including assisted bathing.
We follow a three-week menu that is reviewed so the best in local, fresh, seasonal produce can be included.
We offer a full and varied menu with choices available at all meal times and alternatives available to cater to individual likes and dislikes. Fruit and vegetables are delivered twice weekly from a local farm shop and meat is delivered from a local high quality butcher. Special diets are catered for and being a smaller home, it is easier to cater to peoples individual needs and requirements. Fresh cakes are made on a daily basis by the cooks. Meals are generally served at the table and Residents are encouraged to eat their main meal in the company of the others, but Residents can choose to eat in their room should they prefer to. Many Residents choose to have breakfast in their room.
