24 HOUR DEMENTIA & NURSING CARE

The residents of The Aldbury, and every home in the Colten Care family, benefit from having Colten Care employed nurses on-site at all times, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our residents enjoy their homely surroundings, vibrant atmosphere and beautiful gardens safe in the knowledge that should they require nursing assistance at any time of the day or night, it’s not only available immediately, it’s provided by nurses they know, and who know them.

We believe this comprehensive approach is essential to deliver the best possible care for our residents, to give reassurance to their loved ones, and to ensure continuity of care should their care needs increase over time.

We also provide access to an Admiral Nurse, a specialist dementia care nurse who gives expert practical, clinical and emotional support to families facing the challenges of dementia.

Your Care Services

Dedicated Dementia

We help ease the transition to a dedicated setting where professional dementia care specialists are on hand 24/7. We take a ‘can do’ approach and aim to make every day a fulfilled day.

Assisted Care

Our dementia care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to help and maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.

Nursing Care

Our own nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We provide nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.

Short Stay & Respite

Whether you require a shorter stay, an extended stay over multiple weeks – or even multiple short stays through-out the year, we offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents.

End Of Life

We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want them to die well with us too, as fully supported as possible.

Wish You Were Here!

We aim to make every day worth writing about, and our residents enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what they’ve been up to at The Aldbury. Here are some of their recent highlights.

The words of our residents and relatives say more than we ever could.

“My mum has been at The Aldbury for ten months now and we have been so happy with the care given to her. The home itself is always spotlessly clean, the staff are incredible and show so much respect and kindness to the residents. My mum was very reluctant to move into a home but she is now so content and comfortable. The food is wonderful, especially the cake! She loves it!”

“My family and I send all of you our heartfelt thanks for caring for our relative so wonderfully over the last year. His dementia developed slowly at the start, but eventually he needed a lot more care than I could give him, and he came into your care. Not only that, but he also had more company than he had with just me. I recently asked him if he was happy at The Aldbury, and he smiled and said, “Ooh yes.” It was a great comfort to know he was happy and contented.”
