Your next chapter awaits...

We are delighted to welcome you to Fernhill House in Worcester.

Fernhill House is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art care home with outstanding facilities and equally outstanding care. Our ambition is to provide a vibrant, stimulating place to spend your autumn years. We also aim to do things a little differently to other homes in the area.

We have two communities in which to make your home. The ground floor provides a stunning place in which to live. From the moment you arrive in our chauffeur-driven car, you will be warmly welcomed into our thriving café area which is the hub of our home. Here, you and your family can indulge in freshly baked goods, great coffee or something a little stronger if it takes your fancy, we think that a glass of wine, a sherry or a gin and tonic when you’re with family and friends (old and new) makes conversation flow that little bit more!

We have spacious areas to sit and chat or to find a cosy nook to read your favourite book or morning paper. Our community rooms also include a library, a friendship room where you can entertain in private if you would like. There is no charge for this, you just need to book it – speaking of charges – we only have one charge – an all-inclusive price that will include meals and drinks for you and your family, trips out, our chauffeur-driven vehicle, salon treatments and any hobbies that you wish to maintain – or maybe try out for the first time! We think this gives you peace of mind. We will introduce you to our hand-picked team of dedicated staff and help you to settle in to one of our spacious and beautiful suites. We have built our home in a Georgian style with fabulous sash windows that really let in the light and most look out on to our leafy grounds with dedicated garden spaces.

On our first floor, we have a specialist community for those living with a dementia. Here, maintaining an active life, full of purpose is at the heart of what we do. We have designed hobby rooms, a tea shop and pub to socialise in, lift access to a secure, sensory garden and a stimulating beautiful environment. Our team are dedicated to ensuring you have companionship and a bit of fun. Every day will be different but we will also help with making spaces and routines feel familiar and comforting.

Companionship and real family values are at the heart of what we do. It really is our intention to provide a home away from home with all the standards of daily living you will be used to. Our team are trained and dedicated to ensuring all our residents with a wide range of needs have a gracious and fulfilled quality of life.

We are rightly proud of what we have achieved for our residents and we invite everyone who is interested in the home to visit us in person. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time – I very much look forward to meeting you soon.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Fernhill House for the dedication and exceptional level of care given to my father. We are delighted that he is safe, happy and are also greatly impressed by the attention to detail and the facilities provided.”

A different approach

We believe that all of our staff are not only a talented bunch of people, but that they all have hobbies, skills, talents and interests that can be shared with the people who live at Fernhill House. So we have moved away from having dedicated activities staff to involve our entire team in ensuring there is plenty of stimulating activity and leisure pursuits going on every day. As well as scheduled events, we will have lots of ad hoc moments as well. To see what is going on at any time see the activity links below.

For older people living in care, a break from the norm can be a rejuvenating and refreshing experience. In research conducted in the North of England, the Hair and Care Project uncovered some of the many ways in which a visit to a salon can be beneficial to older people, and particularly those who are living with dementia. 

Therapists and hairdressers who work with older people are not just your average professional. Many are trained in interacting with older people, with some ex-care workers or dementia trained specialists, to help them put the client resident ease. 

We’ve seen first hand just how amazing the effect of hair and beauty treatments can be on an older person and would like to share with you our reasons for operating an in-house salon at Majesticare. 

The benefits of beauty for older people 

We have observed and discovered many far-reaching benefits to indulging in some beauty treatments. Among the many happy consequences were things like:

· Reminiscing: Salons are the ideal place to reminisce about the good old days, and hairdressers are often the ‘keeper of secrets’, encouraging residents to open up about themselves and reconnect with their past. 
· Refreshing: Having a hair or nail treatment, or another type of beauty therapy, can help make residents feel renewed and refreshed. New found energy is discovered, and a happier outlook on life adopted. 
· Fights depression: By encouraging residents to take care of how they look, they often end up feeling better about their situation too. They are the centre of attention, relaxed and love to enjoy a transformation in their appearance. 
· Family engagement: Lots of grandchildren (or even great grandchildren) love to come and watch residents getting their nails done. It adds a new and interesting layer to their visit, encouraging visits to happen more often and be happier occasions. 
· Multi-sensory experience: The experience of being touched, massaged, talked to and all the smells that go with a salon experience offer full sensory indulgence that just can’t be matched. This is particularly important for those living with dementia and enables continuity in their interactions and activities.

Our hair and beauty treatments are not just popular with the ladies either. Male residents too love to look smart and presentable and find grooming a highly therapeutic experience. Hand and foot massages can relive pain, and a manicure is a great way to avoid them accidentally cutting themselves with their own nails. 

Hair and beauty for all at Majesticare

At Majesticare luxury care homes, we are pleased to be able to offer a full suite of hair and beauty treatments to our residents. Our in-house salon is staffed by hairdressers, nail technicians and beauty therapists, helping every one of our residents look and feel fabulous. 

We can also arrange visits from specialist professionals to offer a range of other treatments, from hand and foot massages to facials and more. Best of all, everything is included in the cost of staying with us, so there’s never a good reason not to indulge in a spot of pampering.
