Life at The Old Vicarage is just as individual as the people who live here. Residents are encouraged to indulge existing passions and hobbies, and to explore new interests if the fancy takes them; local clubs and organisations are favourites, along with our own full and diverse activities programme. If there is something you particularly want to try, we will do our best to make it happen – we want you to enjoy yourself, to be happy and fulfilled.
The building’s beautifully landscaped grounds also provide a haven for those who enjoy the peace and relaxation of a rural setting. Our residents enjoy chatting, walking, and painting in the grounds and in the surrounding countryside.
The Old Vicarage is indeed a very beautiful place, but we think the best way to decide if it is the place for you is to come along for a visit. Seeing the building, meeting our happy residents and staff, and getting the feel of the place - the sights, the scents, the sounds - will tell you more about us than any words ever could.
Our guests come from varying backgrounds for a variety of reasons. Some residents seek the company of others because they have been lonely at home; others need assistance with their daily activities because they can no longer manage on their own. Whatever the reasons, we will ensure that we develop a care programme to suit. We welcome both guests who are self-funding and those receiving financial assistance.
Most of our guests are permanent but we also offer short-term care for those needing some respite. The Old Vicarage operates a day care program. Day care is an excellent way of seeing what is on offer before making a decision to come in to the home permanently and often works as a useful way of making friends and familiarising yourself with the different aspects of the home.
