We have taken care to ensure everything you want is under one roof

Whether it’s the decor of your own bedroom, to the activities on offer, or the salon and dining rooms, we want you to continue to enjoy life the way you like it. With help on hand when you need it.

Being able to retain your choices and have things the way you like them is a key part of life at Magdalen House. We’re not here to tell you how to live, we’re here to help you carry on the way you always have. We have taken care to decorate the bedrooms differently, and you are welcome to personalise them with your own effects and pictures.

Our garden has been designed to be a relaxing outdoor space in which to wander, and there are plenty of areas to sit, both inside and outside the home. Inside, there are lounges on each floor and from everywhere in the home, there is Wi-Fi and the ability to summon help if required. One viewing with one of our senior team and you will see for yourself what a wonderful prospect Magdalen House is.

Accommodation and facilities

The residents’ living accommodation was designed for independent living whilst offering the care the residents require. All of the rooms are fully furnished with flat screen TV and a walk in shower room.

We have six suites, each of which includes a kitchenette and en-suite shower room. The suites allow ‘assisted living’ – for people who value their independence, but need some help with some day-to-day activities, such as having their meals prepared, dressing, bathing or taking medication.

Varied types of care

Magdalen House provides a wide range of care packages and services, including 24 hour care for the elderly, day care, dementia care, respite care and assisted living. Starting in October 2016 we will also offer nursing care with a team of specially trained, registered general nurses.

Exactly how much care is needed will depend on the unique needs of each individual. We believe in treating each and every resident as an individual. By understanding our residents’ needs, preserving dignity and respecting independence, we hope to help create a real sense of home.
