Broadoaks is proud to have a wide range of facilities to meet your daily and special requirements.  General facilities include a passenger lift serving all floors, in-house laundering (apart from specialist or dry-cleaning), lockable facilities in all bedrooms, with of course a lock for your own room.  Should you prefer, you can ask for your possessions to be stored in the main house safe.  As well as a comprehensive fire detection system, Broadoaks also has a nurse call system installed throughout the home, ensuring you always have the help on hand when required.

We have a weekly hairdresser pop-in; although you are free to invite your own if you wish or have your key-worker attend to your hair.  We also have a chiropodist who regularly comes to Broadoaks for appointments.  You can retain your own GP, but if this is not possible for whatever reason, Broadoaks can offer you a choice of doctors who attend to residents of the home already.  We ensure the continuity of daily care through a hand-over system during shift changes, when residents’ current needs are discussed and arranged.

At Broadoaks you will find accessibility throughout, including the public, private rooms and the gardens.  We are proud to be completely wheelchair accessible.

The Manager Sonya Crosby is supported by a whole range of devoted staff including team leaders, senior care staff, care assistants, chefs, domestics and a gardener/maintenance man.

Qualified care staff are always there for you.  They are on-duty day and night and all of them have been selected to deliver sensitive and skilful care.  Many of the staff have worked at Broadoaks for a number of years, live locally and are familiar with the area, which we understand residents often find reassuring.

The housekeeping team works especially hard to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness throughout the home.  The night staff check and secure the building each night and will make hourly checks to ensure you are comfortable, if you wish.  Residents have nurse buttons in their room so they can always call for immediate assistance if required.
