Ottley House Care Home in Shrewsbury
Purpose-built Ottley House is situated on the outskirts of the historic town of Shrewsbury, close to the Welsh border. Ottley House is in a semi-rural location but within easy reach of Chester, Birmingham and the Welsh coast. Here at Ottley House we recognise that every individual is unique, and each person will require different kinds of care. Our services include 24-hour nursing care, as well as specialist dementia care all provided bespoke to each person, depending on their individual care needs.
Ottley House has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.
Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.
Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.
At Ottley House, we provide a varied life enrichment programme full of social events and individual hobbies, so there is always something to do and look forward to. Created to empower our residents by cultivating their personal interests, residents can enjoy activities including exercise, arts and crafts, baking, gardening, music, films and many more. Our home also has its own minibus to take residents on regular outings to various attractions within the area such as local garden centres and parks.
The dining at Ottley House is varied and all prepared fresh on the premises by our excellent team of chefs, ensuring that residents' needs are met with seasonal, nutritious dishes, and that the resident’s favourite foods are always on the menu.
We think you'll find we're ideally suited to meet your needs.
