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.

Deciding whether or not to bring young children to visit a loved one in a care home can be a difficult decision. Some parents may not think it’s appropriate for their little ones to be in a care setting. 

However, there have been many studies about the benefits of the older and younger generation socialising. Much like Channel 4’s Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, young children visiting care homes can usually have a positive impact on residents emotional, social and physical wellbeing.  

We welcome visitors with open arms at Fernhill House, and that includes children too! If your loved one has recently moved in to a care home and you want to take your children to visit them, consider the following: 

Explain the situation
It’s always a good idea to sit and explain to your child about why their loved one has moved in to a care home, especially if they have never visited a home before. Try getting them to think of it as a lovely big house, filled with lots of new friends and plenty for your loved one to do, so it doesn’t sound boring or scary! 

Prepare them for what they might see
If they’re old enough to understand, you may need to explain that there are lots of people living at the care home and some of the people living there might be unwell. It’s always best to prepare them so they don’t feel uneasy about what they see or hear. People living with dementia often have bad days, so if your loved one has dementia you may want to explain that their relative may be acting a bit different than usual, but it’s still the same person that they know and love. 

Give them things to do
It’s no secret that children can get bored easily, so making sure your little one has something to do to keep them occupied is a great way of making them feel comfortable. Bring some of their favourite toys along so they can play, or some colouring or a board game so your loved one can join in too.
