Every room has help call, with fully trained professional care staff on hand 24 hours a day.


All our accomodation has been decorated and furnished to make it as homely as possible. We are more than happy for residents to bring furniture, pictures, knick knacks and photographs etc - anything to make them as comfortable as possible.

The light and spacious entrance hall is a popular meeting place to read or chat. There is a magnificent lounge with colour TV, and an elegant dining room with piano and open fireplace, overlooking the terrace and gardens. There is a small library, writing facilities and a licensed bar with TV/video. You can be as private or sociable as you wish - there is plenty of room to find a quiet place when you may not be in the mood for company. The choice is always yours.

Some of our Helpful Staff


SERVICES

Pencombe Hall is not a nursing home, and we cannot therefore provide nursing care. However, we do offer a standard of care and attention that is second to none, and all our staff have been carefully chosen for their patience, kindness and understanding and are on call 24 hours a day. There are two waking night staff, so a cup of tea and a chat at 3.00am is not a problem!

We are able to call on the services of the excellent local primary health care team which means s that a G.P, dentist, or optician is always available.

Regular visits are also made by a hairdresser and chiropodist whose charges are most reasonable.

We keep a small supply of toiletries, sweets, stationary and stamps etc. on the premises and are happy to collect other small items for residents on request.

We will also collect other small items for residents on request. Personal clothing washing and ironing is undertaken free of charge, as well as any minor repairs. Dry cleaning can be arranged on request.
