It has been extended to comfortably accommodate its residents as a 34-room facility along with ensuite and washroom facilities.

The compassionate team at Saxondale, currently led by the experienced Mr Anthony Mitchell, promotes independence where possible while providing round-the-clock care, seven days a week so residents are fully supported. All staff are trained in their respective roles to ensure each individual receives the best care possible for a home away from home.

Residents have access to enclosed gardens if they fancy a relaxing stroll or would prefer to have a calm moment watching the wildlife at the seating areas and decking space. Pets are welcome to visit, as they provide comfort and companionship for residents. 

Internet access is available, and there is street parking and flexible visiting times so family and friends can visit their loved ones with ease.

To keep residents active and entertained, Saxondale have a dedicated activities coordinator who organises a whole host of games, entertainment evenings and experiences. We run exercise classes to help residents stay fit, as well as arranging regular visits from the local hairdresser and chiropodist to support their health and wellbeing. 

We also tailor activities to help residents dealing with different mental health issues, such as using sensory equipment to help with de-escalation, relaxation or stimulation. Music plays an important role in the care home, as it allows residents to share stories and reminisce while they enjoy sing-a-longs, listening to music and playing musical instruments.
