Originally built in Georgian times, the building has been sympathetically converted and extended to provide excellent accommodation for 35 residents, the majority of whom have single rooms on the ground and first floors. The building is set away from the road and is fronted by a well-maintained garden. The provision of large picture windows and a sun lounge enable residents to enjoy this pleasant outlook in comfort, even in cooler weather. Administration The day-to-day administration of the Care Home is carried out on the premises, which ensures the maximum degree of control and efficiency in the running of the home.
The General Manager, Mr D Mitchell, is available during working hours Monday to Friday and can be contacted via the office telephone 01302 832032 Staff The Old Rectory is committed to the continuing education of staff at all levels, encouraging the development of new skills and adoption of modern practices. This is achieved both in-house, via our newly completed training centre, and by attendance of external courses and seminars appropriate to professional geriatric care. Training is provided to cover the most recent requirements and techniques for such things as: Lifting and Handling, COSHHE, Basic Food Hygiene, Fire Awareness, Basic Health and Safety.
