Forest Care Home is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built care home in Mansfield for adults living with a variety of physical and mental health conditions – including dementia – who require high levels of nursing care. This is delivered by our specialist, dedicated team that works within the care home, 24 hours a day.
Individuals at Forest Care Home have their own bedroom with en-suite bathroom facilities. There are separate bathroom facilities with specially designed baths, hoists and other equipment where more support is required. Individuals are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms and to bring in pictures and other items, including televisions, internet compatible computers and CD players.
Our care home has a number of dining rooms and a range of shared lounges to meet individual needs. There are a number of other facilities within the care home including a sensory room, activity and occupation room and lifestyle kitchen. There are also gardens with walkways.
The care home has its own minibus and there are shops, swimming pool, libraries, cinemas and theatres all close by. There are also local parks and historic buildings.
Our philosophy is to create an environment where people we support are treated with dignity and respect in an open environment with strong community links. Visitors are made welcome and can utilise the on-site facilities, such as the community café and several purpose built quiet areas.
