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.

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.


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.

Independent Reviews

The following 'Independent Reviews' are taken from carehome.co.uk. All reviews have been kindly submitted to carehome.co.uk by residents and relatives to our homes and have been independently reviewed by a third party.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Review relates to December 2014.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Review relates to February 2015.

  • 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.

    Review relates to February 2015.

  • 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.

  • Trevor L Husband of Resident/Service User - 19 February 2015

    All the care staff and other staff are wonderful people who all make such a happy care home. Immacolate is so blessed with such great staff. Although I've often heard staff saying "were so short of staff today"

  • 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

  • Anthony L Son-in-law of Resident/Service User - 5 April 2013

    This private care home is dedicated to the memory of the owner's mother (Immacolata Notaro) and it feels this care home attempts, within the bounds of human frailty and financial constraints to give the very best care that the owner would have wished for his own mother to all. My own mother in law was unable to cope at her flat and was distressed. Now she is calm and is experiencing more care and social interaction than for many years. Others much more ill than her, we see receiving great care time and love.

  • Celina Parkin Daughter-in-law of Resident/Service User - 21 February 2013

    I really wanted to write this review as I felt it may help other families who find themselves on a similar journey to ours and who may have the same pre-conceived ideas about nursing homes only being for the elderly or for dementia patients. We were distraught at having to place my father-in-law in a nursing home at the young age of 68, when he had been such a fit and healthy man before developing his grade IV GBM (brain tumour). As his brain tumour was making him deteriorate rapidly, it became too unsafe for us to continue looking after him at home and he needed nursing care which for his dignity and safety, would be better provided by qualified carers and nursing staff. We visited a few nursing homes before deciding on Immacolata House. We were still not at ease with the thought of placing my father-in-law into their care and we found it a very traumatic time; not only having to come to terms with his illness and knowledge that we were going to lose him, but also the fact we felt very guilty that we could no longer look after him ourselves. We felt like we were letting him down/writing him off. The outcome was very different to how we imagined. My father-in-law settled in very quickly and made a very special friendship with another resident. The staff were all so friendly and caring and he was very happy there...so much so that he lived longer than had originally been predicted; we definitely feel that this was largely due to the warmth and care that was provided by everyone at Immacolata House, not only to him but also to us as a family. We will always be very grateful for their immense dedication and would not hesitate recommending this nursing home.
