Our unique care

We are always looking to be innovative in our service. We offer many features which will help you to maintain a high level of fulfilment in your life at each of our homes.


We are unique in our approach to maintaining your independence and quality of life for as long as possible when you live with us.

We have our own dedicated physiotherapist, Sophie, who works across the four homes and can make assessments of ways to best promote independence and participation, by collaborating with nursing and care staff as well as the wellbeing team.

Sophie has a background as a specialist in neuro-physio and is passionate about helping to maintain and improve the quality of life of our residents.

Sophie’s role is all about completing assessments and setting strategies for care staff and the well-being team to follow, to support our residents’ particular needs. This is a step away from the traditional delivery of regular physiotherapy sessions. Should you wish to arrange this with an external therapist, Sophie is always very happy to support referrals and collaborate with your therapist to ensure that all the strategies are understood and followed.

Internal decoration projects

We have worked with our local partners Pace Agency to specify and install an innovative solution to decoration of key areas of our homes which creates a dementia friendly environment for our residents. Through consultation with our residents, our staff and other local partners we developed a stimulating solution to the issues of orientation for people living with dementia in our homes, whilst ensuring that the solution still fits with those with different needs. The result is an attractive arrangement of themed art on the walls which delivers excellence in visual appeal, but also wayfinding at the same time.

Bristol Care Homes Care Plan System

Fully automated care plan and medication systems

As you can see from the rest of our information, we are very proud to be early implementers of electronic care planning and electronic medication management systems. These are both state of the art and support improved quality of life and positive outcomes for you.

Adapted wheelchair cars available for all

We believe that living with us should not just be limited to staying in our homes. In addition to our minibus team who offer a wide variety of interesting trips out, we also have cars which have been adapted for wheelchairs which are fully insured and available for your relatives and friends to drive you out when you like.

We provide the car (booked on a first come first serve basis) the insurance and a base amount of fuel for trips you might require, for example your family might wish to take you away for the weekend and this can easily be achieved through the use of this car.
