Have a look round Five Gables Care Home in the rural village of West Moors, in Dorset
We have twelve bedrooms of varied sizes, all with en-suite or nearby bathroom access - we encourage you to bring in personal belongings to make you feel at home. We have a dining/lounge area with access to our beautiful garden.
We also have a separate lounge that is always available, for anyone who would like to go somewhere a little quieter or more private, adjoining our small courtyard. All areas of the home are fitted with 24-hour access to the Nurse Call system, which means you or your loved one will always have peace of mind that help is nearby.
All the bedrooms have a television, everyone can access our Wi-Fi for free, and there is the option for a private landline at an additional cost if desired.
All rooms have fitted vanity units and are fully-furnished unless otherwise agreed, a 24-hour NurseCall bell, TV and Wi-Fi access, with 8 rooms offering en-suite facilities and all have an NHS approved profiling bed. Air mattresses can be provided for those individuals who require pressure care relief.
We have a large, comfortable communal TV lounge/diner, furnished with high-back wing chairs, dining table and chairs, a television with freeview digital channels, DVD, and Alexas, for music and radio, throughout the home.
This is where our daily activities take place, including our annual raffle, and where people enjoy socialising, reading and having visits from friends and family in here. Drinks and snacks are always available to residents and visitors.
The south facing aspect gives this room a bright and warm feeling atmosphere. Newly installed shutter blinds in September 2022 have given the lounge a lovely, open and homely vibe.
We also have a smaller quiet lounge where people may read, entertain visitors or simply relax as they wish.
We have an enclosed and secure garden with a grassed area to the front, this is accessible from the main lounge - there is a large sun canopy which offers a shaded area and an outside patio table and plenty of seating to accommodate everyone’s needs. The garden is used for activities in the warmer months and a great place to sit, relax and socialise.
‘The improvement in my Mum since she has moved to Five Gables Care Home is wonderful to see. I am very grateful to Julie the Manager and all the carers.
