Day Care

A great introduction to what life in a care home is really like

There's Something For Everyone At Hoar Cross

And a great way to take a short break from caring from your loved one

Considering moving into a care home is a daunting step which most elderly people will resist as long as they can. They fear losing their independence, identity, freedom and dignity. 

The thing is, the comment we get most often once someone has actually moved in is "I wish we'd done it much sooner". That's because life in a good care home is actually great fun. There are things to do, people to talk to, entertainments and a general buzz you just don't get at home on your own.

Using our Day Care Service is a great, low key way for your loved one to experience what life in the home is really like without the commitment of moving in. 

Plus it's a really good way to take the pressure off you for a day if you're caring for them at home. Wouldn't it be great to have just a little time to yourself where you can do exactly what you want without worrying?

Within two weeks of him being at Hoar Cross he felt safe, secure and cared for

Sally M Sister of Resident

From when my brother and I stepped into Hoar Cross Nursing Home we knew it was the right place, being welcomed warmly by a familiar face.

My brother was anxious about his illness but within two weeks of him being at Hoar Cross he felt safe, secure and cared for, even starting to gain weight. The staff at Hoar Cross are exceptional and put much time and effort into supporting and caring for my brother, including the choice and quality of food, nursing and managing medication and helping him be as well dressed and cared for as always.

He was offered choices, felt in control of his life and was gently encouraged to try new things on offer at the Home. He built a relationship of trust with the team and responded well. I visited every day and was made to feel totally welcome and part of his life. Indeed as my brother’s illness progressed the level of support given to both of us was beyond expectation.

Hoar Cross is a wonderful environment, in a lovely location and staffed by an exceptional team.

Spend the day, make new friends and have fun!

Entertainment, Activties, Events & Friendship Await Your loved One at Hoar Cross

With our extensive range of activities and comfotable environment Hoar Cross feels very much like a social club and community for the elderly rather than a care home.

The atmosphere is friendly and active, warm and welcoming, relaxing and caring. So your loved one can come and stay with us for the day, feel free to be themselves and join in activities such as painting, drawing, gardening, or just having a good natter with new found friends. 

If they like pampering (and who doesn't!) they can come for a hairdressing, massage or aromatherapy session, or a good soak in a lovely hot bath! Just tell us what they like and we'll do our best to provide it for you.

Great value and everything included

Here's what's available in your day care package:

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Tea Time Meals
  • Snacks and drinks in between meals
  • All the activities & entertainment that are on for that day
  • Relaxing hot bath or shower
  • Full time care from our expert staff
  • Full use of all our facilities
  • Friendship and companionship

The cost is just £XX per day*

That's great value. Just compare it with a stay at a hotel. You'll be lucky to get a decent room for that price. You certainly won't get all 3 main meals provided, unlimited snacks and drinks, entertainment and activities or full time care.
