Care and Facilities
Searching for the right care home is often a decision we don't consider until we need to and at Austen House we understand that for many this can be a difficult and often daunting prospect. From your initial enquiry our staff are on hand to provide support, advice and information and we welcome you to come and see the facilities we have on offer for yourself and meet with our team who are here to help.
At Austen House we have four community areas; three caring for the needs of individuals living with Dementia and one providing care for a wide range of other nursing needs.
In 2016 significant capital investment has been made into our two ground floor communities, with Barchester's interior design team leading on the transformation of creative spaces designed to stimulate and encourage interaction whilst creating fresh and elegant communal rooms and bedrooms.
At Austen House, we boast our own purpose designed Hair Salon and a wealth of large and small communal areas, as well as our welcoming reception area which greets all visitors with fresh coffee and home made cakes. With no restriction to visiting, we encourage the active involvement of family and are happy to accommodate relatives and visitors joining their loved ones for meals and activities within the home.
