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.

The colder months are well and truly upon us, and as the winter frost sets in, so does our desire for all things warming and delicious.

Our talented team have two delicious recipes that are perfect to prepare when the family is coming over for dinner, or you want to treat visiting friends to a tasty homemade treat.

Studies have shown that the fatty acids found in salmon contribute to healthy brain function, as well as the wellbeing of the heart and joints, making it the perfect fish to enjoy in our older years. Our Salmon en Croute is the perfect autumnal dish, serve with roasted new potatoes and sautéed greens for the perfect family supper.

Serves approx. 5 people

55g unsalted butter
3 large shallots
100g washed spinach leaves 
450g chestnut mushrooms, sliced 
675g salmon fillets, skinned and sliced 
1 lemon, juice only 
1 large bunch fresh dill 
1 tbsp olive oil 
Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
Splash of white wine
1 large free-range egg, beaten 
550g frozen puff pastry 

1. Put half the butter in to a frying pan and heat until foaming 

2. Add finely chopped shallots and fry until golden brown 

3. Add mushrooms and fry until slightly cooked. Add spinach then take off the heat and set aside 

4. Put salmon in a bowl and combine with lemon juice, dill, olive oil, salt and pepper 

5. Roll out the pastry until it’s a few millimetres thick, spoon the shallot, mushroom and spinach mixture on to the pastry and spread evenly 

6. Place the salmon (juices discarded) in a row, just off centre, on top of the shallot, mushroom and spinach mixture 

7. Sprinkle white wine over salmon and dot the remaining butter over 

8. Roll the whole thing up tightly (like a sausage roll), and coat in egg wash 

9. Cook at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown

10. Rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving 

Chocolate brownies are the perfect sweet treat all year round and a definite crowd pleaser! Serve with winter berries and a scoop of ice cream for a delicious dessert that the whole family will love.
