An activities Coordinator is employed within the home to provide individual, group and general activities for the residents. These activities are adapted to suit individual needs and include outside entertainers and trips out utilising our mini bus. As we pride ourselves on both belief in socialising and individual needs, there are three communal lounges, two dining rooms and a quiet room for one to one or private meetings within the home. Our Activities Coordinator liaises with local support groups, churches and schools to provide a varied selection of activities.
Windy Knowe is one of our care homes with nursing and residential care which also specialises in dementia care, with 49 beds on three floors all accessible by lift. All have access to the extensive gardens to the rear of the building. Visitors are welcomed. If you would like to book a tour of the home please contact the manager directly, who will be more than pleased to assist you.
