Opus Care Homes provide a full range of residential, nursing and dementia care.
Self-contained, but situated within the main Village Centre, the Opus Care Home immediately has a completely different feel from most care homes. The environment rivals a luxury hotel with facilities such as a spa, swimming pool, private dining and a hair and beauty salon, which are all designed to make your life more enjoyable.
Opus Care Homes are all about you and your quality of life. Whether you are looking for short or long-term care, this is certainly no ordinary care home.
We want to change the view most people have of a care home. Excellent care is a given, but we don’t want it to be a place where you go just to receive care and support. We take a holistic approach to care so that you can get the most out of life, continue to enjoy your interests and hobbies and try new things.
We don’t see care as purely physical care and support; we strive to understand you as a person, what makes you ‘tick’ and focus on making your life better.
Quite simply, our staff are the most important part of an Opus Care Home. Our staff are well trained and rewarded, motivated and valued, and feel part of a team. Unlike traditional care home models, our Care Managers focus exclusively on caring for you and managing and motivating our staff.
Operationally, matters such as maintenance and administration are dealt with separately by the Village Managing Director leaving our Care Managers to focus on what’s really important, your care.
Similarly, a dedicated hospitality and housekeeping team ensures nurses and carers spend their time caring for you rather than serving meals or cleaning. You will also have a dedicated carer as a daily point of contact.
All rooms are spacious, bright and fully furnished with an electric profiling bed, TV, WiFi, telephone, and an en-suite wet room. There is no extra charge for the WiFi and telephone; you can even bring your old number with you! Whilst we do our utmost to ensure your room looks amazing, we do encourage you to bring personal furniture, ornaments and pictures to make this space your own.
Events & Activities
Our Events & Activities Team will spend time with you and your family to discover what your hobbies and interests are, how you enjoy spending your time and more importantly, what unfulfilled ambitions you may have. A daily schedule includes everything from fitness and crafts to wine tasting and trips out.
Meals & Dining
Our chefs design a varied menu of delicious and nutritious meals using local suppliers and seasonal produce. They will spend time with you to understand what you like and how you like it prepared and presented. So, whether it’s a light snack or a 3-course dinner we aim to ensure there is always something to whet your appetite. Where you eat is up to you; in the dining room with friends or in the privacy of your own room. And for a special occasion, why not book the private dining room next to the main Village restaurant?
Technology & Innovation
We are constantly looking to use modern technology, to improve the quality of your life. For example, helping you stay in touch with friends and family using tablets and apps such as Zoom so that you can talk to loved ones throughout the country and the world.
We use electronic care planning which means less paperwork as well as immediate access to individual care plans. With your permission family members can access your records and see the things you have been enjoying throughout the day.
If you wish, acoustic and fall monitoring can be installed within your room so that you are not disturbed throughout the night should we need to check on you more regularly.
Visiting & Visitor Accommodation
We actively encourage visitors and families to be part of everyday life by joining in events and activities, plus your family and friends are always welcome to dine with you. There are no visiting times, it is your home, and you are welcome to receive guests at any time. All Opus Retirement Villages offer bookable guest accommodation allowing family and friends to arrange overnight stays.
