A quintessential English country house, Astley Hall has recently been refurbished to highest standards, with independent accreditation and highly trained staff, providing a unique residential care environment.
It was sad to say goodbye to Sandra, who is joining her husband in retirement. A huge thank you...
Recently Jayne, our activities co-ordinator at Astley Hall, took one of our residents on a shopping trip to Superdrug...
Astley Hall provides tranquil and relaxing accommodation in a country manor house set in beautiful grounds.
The home was acquired by Heritage Manor group in 2012, and has since undergone an extensive refurbishment to make this listed country seat of Sir Stanley Baldwin a comfortable and appealing home for its residents and staff.
Astley Hall enjoys full compliance with the Care Quality Commission, and has also been awarded the Worcestershire dementia standard. We provide dementia and nursing care for both respite and longer term, in the unique setting of a country manor house.
Our home offers both single and shared accommodation, with many bedrooms enjoying superb views out over the valley. They are fully furnished, and tastefully decorated to a high standard. We have a number of lounges for residents to use, or one can simply relax outside with views looking out over the valley.
I would like to wish you all a very warm welcome to Astley Hall in Worcestershire.
I qualified as a Learning Disabilities nurse in 2000 at Kingston University, and have worked in a number of different roles within the NHS, social services and the private sector.
I moved from learning disabilities to elderly care and dementia in 2012, and love the variety of the home manager’s role and the opportunities it gives me to be involved in so many individuals’ lives.
As a learning disabilities Nurse, I have cared for people with complex physical needs and cognitive impairment, and am passionate about providing person centred care that promotes the individuals personal preferences and encourages and maintains their involvement in their daily lives.
I believe that when someone moves into a care home, it should not mean that they lose touch with the people, communities and activities, that have meant so much to them throughout their lives. At Astley Hall the team work hard to ensure that this does not happen.
Once Astley Hall becomes home for an individual it becomes home for their family too. We understand how difficult it can be to make the decision to support someone to move into a home, and will support the individual moving in and their family in whichever way they need.
Friends and family are welcome to visit whenever they want, to pop in for coffee, stay for a meal and join in any events or outings that we organise. As manager, I am always available to meet with families and friends on an individual basis, and hold regular informal meetings that give residents and their friends and families the opportunity to meet with me and discuss and plan future activities or events as well as a chance to feedback on how things are going. Individuals change and circumstances change and as a care home it is important that we recognise this and provide care that is flexible and constantly reviewed to ensure that it is meeting individual’s needs and preferences.
I am supported by a great team of nursing, care, activities, housekeeping, catering and maintenance staff, all of whom are committed to making Astley Hall the best it can be, who work together to ensure that we provide the highest standard of care.
We have long-standing and dedicated nursing teams in our homes, with many years of professional experience between them. This has enabled us in a number of our homes to have achieved the highest accreditation for nursing care, the Gold Standard Framework.
"Both my parents live at Astley. Since they are both frail and unable to cope at home, this was transitional, firstly my Mother who has dementia and more recently my Father who is also requiring substantial care. The family visits the hall, and we always find them in good care. The home is well staffed, and the carers friendly. No complaints about the food and the place has the credentials of being clean, and well run. Most importantly, I can trust the nursing staff to make the right decisions, on what they can cope with and when hospitalisation is necessary."Richard P, son of resident December 2017
"Astley Hall is a quality care home. There are so many good memories and comments we could make. We will always be grateful."DC and family of resident, February 2018
"Thank you all very deeply for looking after my parents in their last years. They moved to Astley Hall together in 2013. You all helped to make my parents last years better and our family is very grateful to you all."S & PB, January 2018
"We can't thank you enough. We will never forget the kindness you showed to her and to us as well. We shall miss seeing you all as you became such an important part of our lives for almost 4 years."L & C, January 2018
"The staff were extremely patient with Mum and soon encouraged her to join in with activities. She is now a different person. The hall is set in lovely gardens which are used by the residents. The standard of care is excellent, the staff fabulous and the activity co-ordinators outstanding. We highly recommend Astley Hall. You can keep up to date with Astley Hall via Facebook, where the staff post pictures and videos of the activities."SS, daughter of resident, May 2018
"Absolutely delighted with the nursing and care provided to my husband during March and April 2018. He could not have wished for better care. Very professional staff, yet friendly and approachable. Very impressed with how hard working and caring everybody at Astley Hall Nursing Home was. Thank you."FW, wife of resident, June 2018
CQC are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage us to make sure we are providing the best care possible.
As with all of our homes, we do our up-most to ensure our residents get the most they can from life. We have a full-time activities programme run by our activities organisers, ranging from beauty treatments in our nail spa to live music.
Our food is locally sourced, cooked from fresh ingredients and so tailored to individuals’ wishes and needs.
We encourage residents to get outside to our garden with beautiful, uninterrupted views over the valley to the village church. We have just installed a serenity garden using monies kindly bequeathed to the home, to make the best use of the views.
Our characterful lounges were all refurbished in 2013 to provide a warm, communal area for residents and their visitors to enjoy; we have the space for t.v areas or more quiet, secluded areas. We have separate dining rooms, as we promote meal times as a sociable activity. Family and friends are encouraged to visit at any time, and join in with the activities or mealtimes.
We would love to hear from you and discuss any questions you have and to help you make the right decision for you or your loved one.
