Immacolata House
Reminisence room within Immacolata House

Beautiful, spacious interiors and stunning views of the surrounding countryside are the first things that people notice at Immacolata House Dementia Nursing Home. Take time to look a little further and you’ll find there’s even more to our home than first meets the eye.

Wander down the spacious, colour-coded corridors and you’ll hear laughter and music from one of the resident’s lounges, or see someone quietly reading in our drawing room.

Step into the landscaped gardens and you’ll find a patio area, winding pathways, planting boxes and a sensory garden. From there, it won’t be long before you’ll discover our guests’ favourite feature: ‘Benvenuto Fattoria’, our ‘Welcome Farm‘. Farm residents include pigmy goats, pigs, peacocks, lop-eared rabbits, guinea pigs, Indian Runner ducks, turkeys and feather legged bantams.

Seeing life through our residents’ eyes

All staff in our dementia homes – from maintenance and catering to care and nursing – receive specialist training in dementia awareness. This helps them to experience life through the eyes of a person living with dementia.

Registered nurses available day and night

At Immacolata House, as in all of our nursing homes, we have Registered Nurses in constant attendance, day and night. Of course, nursing isn’t just about clinical and medical care. Our nurses are good communicators and listeners too, working well as part of a team alongside residents, families, friends and other specialists.

Activities

At Notaro Homes we understand the importance of meaningful activities. They play a vital role in helping our residents live life to the full, whatever their physical ability. Our activities are not only designed to engage mind, body and spirit but to respect and honour our residents’ individuality. Each of our homes have their very own Activities Coordinator who is responsible for organising and delivering a fun packed, varied programme which often includes trips out and about and visits from animal sanctuaries, community groups and theatrical companies.

Gold Standards Framework

We’re really proud that we’ve been awarded the prestigious Gold Standards Framework Quality Award. The award recognises the standard that we and the medical practitioners we work with, have reached in caring for people in the last years of their lives.

  • D B Friend of Resident/Service User - 21 July 2015

    Immacolata in my opinion is as good as it gets. Your staff are splendid, helpful, considerate and informed. The rooms are clean, light and cheerful. Surroundings are perfect. Well done the management and staff.

  • The Hayes Family Son of Resident/Service User - 19 June 2015

    This is a purpose built care home with well designed facilities. The team of care workers create a happy, friendly, family atmosphere. Having a loved family member in a home is never an easy thing to do, but the team at Immacolata and the care they provide leaves you feeling you have done your very best and gives a great deal of comfort.

  • Andrew Cilia Son of Resident/Service User - 29 May 2015

    I had to find a home for my dad I had a good look around close to where we live and Immacolata House was the most open and friendly place. I knew straight away that I would want my dad in there and he has been there for a while. I have no regrets the staff are fantastic with him. All in all a very nice place for my dad to be.

  • Pauline G Friend of Resident/Service User - 29 April 2015

    On arrival we were welcomed and well directed when visiting my good friend, a resident, at your home. We were impressed by not only the beautiful surroundings but the standard of care given during our visit. The staff on duty were all very cheerful, helpful and professional when tending to our friend. They spoke to him and respected his privacy. Our friend seems calmer and happier. Nothing really seemed to be too much trouble. Not one of us wants to be reliant on care but should it happen to me, I should not mind to be placed in such a home.

  • Neil T Nephew of Resident/Service User - 24 February 2015

    I arranged for my Aunt to be moved to Immacolata House, in December 2014 in order that she could be nearer to her existing relatives. My Aunt has dementia and is not mobile. I was concerned that she would take a long time to adjust to new surroundings and staff she was not used to. I was delighted that she adjusted so quickly. My Aunt now seems generally happy and not anxious, staff appear to be genuinely patient and compassionate, even under difficult circumstances. I have no reservation in recommending Immacolata dementia care home.

  • Jacqueline M Daughter of Resident/Service User - 24 February 2015

    My son and I were invited to a Christmas dinner which gave us a chance to sample the food which is good. Her care I cannot fault, she is seen by the dentist, opticians, I am satisfied with her care, they love my mum as much as I do.

  • Mary W Resident / Service User - 24 February 2015

    My experience at this unit has been a very favourable one. The food is plain wholesome and nutritious. The environment is clean and attractive and comfortable. The staff are patient and very helpful. I found my stay here very pleasant and relaxing.

  • Shirley D Wife of Resident/Service User - 24 February 2015

    This home is a very warm and welcoming place, in a lovely setting. The staff go out of their way to provide a happy environment. My husband has settled in so quickly, he loves the food and has thrived since moving here from hospital, where he could hardly put one foot in front of the other, within a week he was walking with more confidence, and interacting with the staff and other residents. The improvement is remarkable and the family and I are delighted to see Clive happy and comfortable. Far better than we could possibly hope for.

  • Yvonne R Wife of Resident/Service User - 20 February 2015

    My husband is cared for appropriately. He enjoys his daily shower and is always well presented - except when he refuses to shave! The laundry is good. He enjoys most of his meals. The security is excellent. Activities he finds that they do not test his abilities eg quiz's are to easy. The grounds are lovely and kept well. The animal farm is a good focal point.

  • Mandy Richards Daughter of Resident/Service User - 6 March 2014

    I can't thank the staff enough for the way they cared for my mum they were kind and sincere she was kept beautifully clean and well dressed. I was always made welcome when I came to visit and was lovely to see my mum look so happy. I will never forget how much love and care they gave to my mum in her final hours and the support they gave me will stay with me always. Thank You x
