About

We pride ourselves on providing a happy, friendly and warm environment that lets residents be as independent or involved as their needs and wants allow.

What relatives say about Arthur Jenkins:

Our staff

We strive to provide high quality residential, dementia and respite care. Our round-the-clock care package is provided by our highly motivated, fully qualified and friendly staff. They do what’s necessary to meet the care needs of our residents, taking into account each individual’s situation and personalising the care to suit them.

On joining us at Arthur Jenkins, we assess each new resident so that we can ensure their current needs are identified and met. Throughout their stay, we monitor them closely so that we can increase the levels of care they receive over time, if necessary. We genuinely care about and value all of our residents, so we make sure that they are as happy and healthy as possible.

Living here

We have 29 bedrooms in total, divided into two self-contained areas. 13 bedrooms are for those with dementia and the other 16 bedrooms have general residential beds.

All of our bedrooms are bright, airy, comfortable and roomy, and include a wardrobe, a lockable chest of drawers, a bed, a bedside cabinet and a sink basin. We are very happy for residents to bring some personal possessions with them so that they can make their rooms their own.

Each of our units has a generously-sized lounge area for relaxing in while enjoying TV, radio or films, a dining and kitchen area and assisted bathing facilities with hoists. There are room call systems in every room, with the option for wearable pendant alarms if desired.

We have an on-site professional kitchen where trained chefs prepare three home-made meals each day for our residents. The menu operates on a fortnightly programme, with multiple options at every mealtime. Our experienced culinary staff can cater for specialist diets and individual needs as required. Meals are usually eaten in the dining rooms.

Activities

Arthur Jenkins has lots of break-out space where residents participate in hobbies, catch up over cups of tea and spend quality time with their new and old friends and family. Our activities organiser makes sure that there are plenty of activities to keep our residents occupied and help them make friends, regardless of their abilities.

We hold special reminiscence sessions where residents can experience nostalgia and memories of the past, which is particularly helpful to those with dementia. From stories about things from the residents’ childhood eras to actual objects from the past, the hope is that residents will remember or recognise things from their past and gain cognitive stimulation from them.
