Making every moment matter is just as important to us as the standard of care we deliver. Our main focus is ensuring that our residents needs are at the heart of everything we do. When a new resident joins us, we invest time in understanding the resident’s life story, their hobbies and the important people in their lives. We use this information to encourage our residents to live life the way they choose, with laughter and love.
Residents are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms by bringing furniture from home and our dedicated maintenance team are on hand to hang pictures and photographs to create a ‘home from home’.
Regular feedback forums enable residents and family members the opportunity to suggest new experiences, outings and events, ensuring that our activities programme is varied, engaging and reflects the choices and interests of our residents.
Our accessible activities programmes promote inclusivity and are continuously adapted and reviewed for the changing needs of our residents.
We strive for new and creative ways to meet the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual needs of our residents, including some of them starring in this brochure! Our regular clubs include gardening, exercise classes, quizzes and church services and we use our links with local schools and nurseries, churches and businesses to enhance our resident experience. We also know how to throw a good party and can often find the residents and team dancing and singing along to live entertainment.

Our freshly home cooked meals play a central role in the resident experience here at Avocet Court. Seasonal menus are designed with the help of our residents at regular food forums, and our menus can be easily adapted to ensure we cater for all dietary needs. If the residents fancy something a little different, we’re pleased to be able to further enhance our menus by offering light bites and alternative choices.
We work closely with local suppliers to make sure we have the very best quality produce to offer, and our creative kitchen team enjoy using food to offer new experiences and world cuisines to the residents
