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.

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.

Once a year the shelves are stocked with sweets and scary costumes, all in preparation for Halloween. It’s a day that lots of people enjoy, but it’s also a worrying day for some, especially the older community.

Strangers knocking at the door, mostly dressed up or wearing masks, even sometimes showing threatening behaviour – it’s no wonder that Halloween can bring an evening of anxiousness to the older generation. 

There are lots of ways to ensure the safety of your loved one, especially if they are living on their own. Here are just some of the things you can do: 

No decorations, no knocking
Many towns now abide by the ‘no decorations, no knocking’ rule, so make sure that the front door is free of any pumpkins or decorations, that way people know that you do not want to be disturbed. 

Safety first
Put the door chain on or use the door spy hole to see who is there before opening the door. If you don’t feel safe opening the door, then keep it closed, you are not obliged to open the door for anyone. 

Put a note asking people not to knock
Much like the no decorations rule, it’s a good idea to put a sign on the door kindly asking trick or treaters to stay away. You can make your own or look for a template online. 

Be at your loved one’s side
If your elderly loved one wants to get involved in the festivities, then make sure someone is with them to answer the door and avoid any unnecessary stress, especially if the trick-or-treaters are in large groups. 

No more sweets
Put a sign on the door saying ‘no more sweets’ once you have run out, so people know to no longer knock. 

Don’t leave someone living with dementia on their own
If your loved one is living with dementia, don’t leave them on their own, sit with them or invite them out for a welcome distraction. Unwelcome people knocking at the door can be incredibly frightening and confusing for somebody living with dementia. 

They may sound like very simple tips, but they are all ways to help your loved one feel safe, something that is of the upmost importance.

Like all national days, celebrations and events, our team will carefully plan tasteful, fun and engaging activities around Halloween. If you want to know how you can join, just give u a call or send us an email.
