A RESIDENCE FULL OF CHARACTER
Stoneleigh House was a former Gentleman's Residence forming part of the Hanham Estate dating back to circa 1869. Stoneleigh House occupies a prominent town centre position opposite Waitrose in the heart of Wimborne Minster, a short distance from the square, with its excellent shopping and local amenities.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES
At Stoneleigh we aim to provide comfortable, warm and carefree accommodation to elderly people who no longer feel able or have the desire to fend for themselves in their own home. We aim to assist you to enjoy your own life style as far as possible and to maintain involvement in the local community. We will respect your privacy and your right to make your own decisions. However, responsible help and advice will always be available should you need it.
Each residents room has an en-suite toilet, washbasin, television, telephone and is centrally heated. All rooms have a call bell in case of emergency. There is a communal lounge, a sunny room with a television, and selection of daily newspapers.
The dining room is spacious and comfortable where residents can enjoy sitting with others or at their own table. The mature garden is secluded and private with comfortable seating.
A weekly outing is arranged to local beauty spots and places of interest, with picnic teas through the summer.
CARE AND SECURITY
Experienced carers offer every assistance with kindness and are supported by cleaning and catering staff. All residents' rooms are lockable and keys are available if required. Residents and their guests are free to come and go as they please throughout the day.
Fire precautions and appliances conform to the current regulations.
GENERAL INFORMATION AND FEES
Room fees are from £550 per week and preferably paid monthly by standing order. Fees cover full board and accomodation, weekly outings, and personal laundry. Fees do not include dry cleaning, personal toiletries, nor charges incurred with the visiting hairdresser or chiropodist.
Stoneleigh is registered with The Care Quality Commission to accommodate elderly people.
Residents are welcome to bring with them items of furniture and as many personal possessions as can be accommodated in their room.
We hope you would consider joining us to discuss with us the possibility of becoming a resident for a trial period until we may mutually decide that your residency be regarded as permanent. In order to assist us to get to know you we would be delighted to visit you in your own home.
