What We Offer
The Eshcol House team is passionate about personalised nursing and residential care, and we want residents and their families to feel they have a say in every aspect of the service we provide.
We offer respite care, step-up-step-down beds, crisis admissions and early intervention services, and we specialise in giving comfort and support during the later stages of our clients’ lives.
All our clients’ rooms are fully furnished, including remote-controlled LED televisions, and we encourage residents to bring their own furniture if they wish in order to create a real home away from home. Most rooms have en-suite facilities, and we are currently in the process of renovating a fully equipped wet room. A communal telephone is available, as well as the option for residents to have their own phone installed in their rooms. A time-monitored nurse call system is also in every room, to ensure each guest’s wellbeing.
We are two minutes’ walk from our doctors’ surgery, so that supervision by a medical practitioner is available as and when needed. We also maintain good links with nearby hospitals and are happy to arrange visits from chiropodists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dentists and opticians. A hairdresser also regularly attends the home, as well as members of the clergy of various denominations.
Personal laundry is taken care of in our own fully-equipped laundry facilities.
We provide locally sourced food for seasonal menus which are cooked by our head chef Owen and his excellent team. The standard of food is high and we always try to cater, wherever possible, with off-the-menu requests. Breakfast is served from 8am, lunch from noon and supper from 5:30pm in the dining room or residents’ private rooms if preferred. Morning coffee and afternoon tea with homemade cake is served either in residents’ private rooms or in the lounge as required. Further beverages and light snacks are always available and accessible at no extra cost.
Eschol House prides itself on combining the very highest standards of clinical excellence with a warm, approachable, friendly manner.
