Melbourn Springs Care Home in Melbourn, near Royston

Melbourn Springs Care Home in Melbourn near Royston offers residential care, dementia care and pre-bookable respite stays for older individuals. Our committed and dedicated staff members provide high-quality residential care for frail older people who benefit from additional care and support in a warm and friendly environment.

Dementia Care

We provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.

Residents live in smaller communities with a family feel so that they can feel safe and comfortable. Care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person-centred approach. Staffing levels reflect the needs of residents, and people living with dementia are offered a range of activities to help preserve life skills, support interactions and retain a sense of purpose and selfhood.

The village of Melbourn is steeped in history and has some of the most beautiful thatched cottages in the country, and the springs at Melbourn Bury, along with the peaceful River Mel, have also made it very popular with locals and visitors alike.

A great addition to the village has been the Melbourn Community Hub which comprises of the Bookmark Café, the library, parish council offices and it is also a venue for many community activities and events. There are many clubs and societies that meet regularly, in addition to the village’s Mobile Warden Scheme, ensuring that no one is left isolated. The village is renowned for a strong rural, community spirit that continues to thrive, and which Melbourn Springs Care Home is very much a part of.

We have created a video to showcase our stunning care home, which you can view below:

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Paula Colman

General Manager

Hi, my name is Paula, and I am proud to be the General Manager here at Melbourn Springs. Welcome to our website!

I joined the home in 2015. My background is in nursing and I have vast knowledge and experience working with the elderly. After applying for a senior position, I was promoted to Head of Community in April 2016, then to Deputy Manager in July 2018. I became the Acting General Manager in November 2019, and General Manager in September 2020.

One thing I feel is really important is offering residents a lot of personal choice; I feel that, as Melbourn Springs is their home, they have the right to choose what goes on here.

I am hands-on in my role and I like to spend as much time as possible with the people I care for. I also really enjoy getting to know the residents' families and provide them with support when they need it.

I look forward to meeting anyone who visits our home.
