About Milkwood Care

At Milkwood Care, we strive to provide unrivalled high standards of care in each of our stunningly beautiful homes.

It's our aim to make life in a Milkwood home a life-enhancing experience in a relaxing, yet uplifting sanctuary.

Our fully-qualified team provide 24/7 care and we work hand in hand with local health professionals, who are on call for when we require specialist care. We train all our staff to the very highest standards, ensuring they are abreast of the latest techniques in dementia and specialist care.

 

Our rich schedule of regular and ad hoc activities gives our residents the opportunity to participate in their favourite pastimes, learn new skills, venture outdoors and keep their minds and bodies fit and alert.

We have a creative and enthusiastic support team who devise a broad programme of activities, including reminiscence therapy, musical movement, flower arranging and other day trips.

We strongly believe in the total well-being of each one of our residents and aim to provide a personal, caring environment, where everything is set up and driven to maximise their happiness and quality of life.

 

Research

There's a wealth of information available to enable you to find the perfect home for your loved one.

Speak to professionals, such as doctors and social workers, about the best homes in the area in which you are looking.

Look at websites, such as carehome.co.uk where you can read reviews and explore the best homes available.

Make a shortlist and be sure to visit the homes to see which is the right one for you.

Financial

A move into a care home has financial implications that need to be understood and planned for. We can steer you through the process.

The care fees that we quote cover a resident's living costs including their room, food, heating, lighting, trips out etc. The local authority may pay all or part of the bill, but every individual's circumstances differ so the actual care costs for each resident will need to be discussed and confirmed.
