Come along to our Dementia Friends Session on Wednesday 15th June, from 12.30 pm, a friendly and informal session aimed at raising awareness of dementia.
Admiral Court Care Home is a modern care home in Leigh-on-Sea. We provide industry leading dementia care as well as nursing and palliative care in quiet and comfortable surroundings that have been recognised nationally for their design innovations. We operate a high team member to resident ratio, which affords every resident the opportunity to have care provided at their pace, while our Lifestyle and Activities team ensure that the needs of each individual resident are met. Activities range from the energetic and popular Zumba sessions, to the more relaxed arts and crafts and gardening clubs.
Our residents are supported to live an active and fulfilled life. Our relationship-centred care enables residents to keep on doing the things they’ve always loved – the things they perhaps thought they could no longer enjoy. So as part of our community, they’ll be able to cook, help out in the garden and carry on with the kind of everyday routines which make their lives theirs.
Life at Admiral Court
This purpose built care home allows residents to carry on enjoying the everyday routine they cherish. Residents can continue to have their weekly hair appointment at the luxurious ‘Hair Salon’ and meet with friends at the ‘Little Ship Pub’, while the state-of-the-art cinema and the relaxing therapy room are luxurious retreats. There is also a warm, vibrant café just inside our reception where residents and their family and friends can enjoy fresh coffee and homemade cakes as well as beautiful landscaped gardens, with raised planters to enjoy a relaxing stroll.
Meanwhile, our award-winning specialist dementia environment is designed specifically to enhance the quality of life of our residents, offering stability, reassurance and familiarity. This community includes a ‘rummage room’, a purpose built room designed for those living with dementia and an interactive kitchen and dining facilities, where residents are encouraged to take part in familiar activities, such as baking and the preparation of meals.
Why choose us?
Our dedicated team work closely with residents living with dementia to enable them to continue to live life to the full and perhaps do things they could no longer do in their own home. We empower residents to take part in engaging activities that are tailored to their needs and based on lifestyle preferences. These take place both within the home and in Leigh-on-Sea and the surrounding areas and include excursions to the theatre, the beach and community events.
Our philosophy of relationship-centred care means we train our team with additional communication and observational skills to support the people we care for. As a result, Admiral Court is one of the leading care homes in Essex for those who are living with dementia. Admiral Court is featured as one of the top 20 recommended care homes in the East of England and was highly commended for customer service at the 2015 Essex Business Awards.
