Welcome to Ferndene

Ferndene Care Home

Ferndene Care Home is the latest addition to Monarch Healthcare’s portfolio.  The care centre is a purpose built nursing and residential home, offering accommodation, care and nursing for older people and people living with dementia.

The home is spacious, light and welcoming for all residents and their friends and family; benefitting from several comfortable reception rooms, where residents can entertain their guests.

Staff at Ferndene are kind, caring, personable and keen to continue developing their skills; ensuring each resident’s experience is positive.  We value all contributions from residents and their family or friends, with any offers of help gratefully received.

Mealtimes are a relaxed and social occasion for residents who enjoy other people’s company.  If preferred, meals can be served in a person’s own room.  In all cases it is our intention to offer an appetising and varied menu, taking into consideration peoples’ preferences, as well as any medical dietary requirements.  Families are welcome (with a little notice) to share a meal with their loved one and we will always make a special fuss for people’s birthdays, anniversaries and other special events throughout the year.

Everything we do is aimed at supporting people to remain in good health, to feel valued and enjoy a fulfilled lifestyle.  Our activities co-ordinators and enthusiastic care team are chosen for their willingness to work alongside residents; in order to encourage independence and well-being. With support from a network of community professionals, we believe all residents at Ferndene receive excellent care to enhance their quality of life.

June in Bloom

Winner of the June in Bloom competition - Ferndene

Congratulations, the prize of £500 will be given to Ferndene to spend on their gardens.

Ferndene staff really moved mountains  in the last 4 weeks from a garden that was non existent to create lovely areas to sit, a vegetable garden, and planted sensory plants. An area was also created for activities where residents could pot their own plants.

The whole atmosphere has been enhanced by using the entrance of the home  to create a warm and welcoming feeling  for residents and visitors  with the chosen theme of ‘Picnic in the Park’ – it is such an interaction point as soon as you walk into the home  with residents’ engagement with staff and visitors.
