'Care' in a Colten home includes many other integral services alongside that provided by the nurses and healthcare assistants. Our chefs, waiting staff, maintenance teams, gardeners and the rest of our workforce are all supported by professional central teams. They provide additional expertise and resource to underpin each home’s community of care. Specialist roles don’t tend to present themselves to residents individually. Instead, they complement each other every day to influence the overall standard of care a person receives.
Recognising the individual in you, we ask what interests and hobbies you enjoy. Our extensive activities programme, run over seven days, is designed to involve all our residents to the level they want. Activities include those that are more active as well as people to provide one-to one companionship in your own room
