Our two new state-of-the-art dementia care cottages offer a warm and familiar environment, designed to promote a sense of belonging and comfort for residents and their families.
HammondCare’s unique model of care revolves around getting to know each person and their family, ensuring that our residents receive personalised care tailored to their individual needs. Our team works closely with each resident and their loved ones, understanding their interests, preferences, and life story to create a home-like environment that truly reflects who they are.
With a focus on individualised care, HammondCare Strathearn House is dedicated to helping residents maintaining a fulfilling life, surrounded by a beautiful environmental setting and a supportive community.
What does Strathearn House offer?The warmth of home: Strathearn House has a warm and welcoming atmosphere with the comforts of home. The cottages serve those who are frail aged or are living with dementia and have a variety of common spaces including dining rooms, lounge and outdoor areas, with accessible courtyards and beautiful gardens.
Engagement with life: We encourage residents to take part in everyday activities which provides a sense of purpose and feeling involved. We also offer residents a variety of social and recreational opportunities, including gardening, trips to local village shops, and engagement with the community.
A fresh food culture: High quality, varied, and delicious food is essential to everyone’s physical and emotional health. That’s why we ensure all meals are freshly cooked on-site and we spend significantly more on each meal than industry average.
Comprehensive support: At HammondCare, we aim to provide comprehensive support for each resident, their family, and carers, to help embrace physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs. We value understanding your wishes for care in the future and can provide information for you about how to communicate those wishes to your care team.
