Foylebank Care Home in Chaddesden, Derby (previously Raynesway View) provides affordable residential care for 35 residents.

We respect all our residents – their dignity, their space, and their right to make personal choices in care. Each resident is different, and we offer a range of activities and menu options so every person feels happy, stimulated and cared-for.

As well as caring for our residents we care about their families too. Friends and family members are welcome to visit, and there’s always tea and coffee on hand!

Are you able to accept care home visits?

Yes, we are delighted to be able to welcome visitors back into our home. Our care home visiting policy is based on a strict protocol and risk assessment that takes into account the individual circumstances of each home.

Call us on 01332 718 300 to arrange a visit. We’d love to introduce you to the home, our staff and our residents.

The grounds & activities

We have a lovely courtyard with vegetable patches. It is a great spot for BBQs and garden parties in the summer! We believe it’s important to be able to access nature, both for mental and physical stimulation, and doing this is easy and safe in our secure grounds.

We like to provide variety for our residents, so the activity schedule reflects that. We welcome all sorts of musical entertainers, and residents can often get involved with instruments and percussion! Other activities include:

  • Exercise classes
  • Arts and crafts
  • Manicures, beauty treatments, and hairdressing
  • Bingo
  • Baking and then eating!

Visits are always enthusiastically welcomed, following our safety protocol.

The bedrooms

Foylebank offers 35 bedrooms for people living there, in which it’s our priority to provide a home from home.

Before a new resident arrives we like to find out about their likes and dislikes, so we can arrange their bedroom in a welcoming way.

In addition to this, once they’re here we encourage residents to personalise their rooms with their own photos and furniture.

Personal possessions help residents feel at home and provide extra stimulation and time for reminiscence.

Staff training

All our staff go on an intensive three-day Agincare induction and training before starting at Foylebank.

In addition to this, our partner Training Now provides access for all our care workers to an accessible mandatory training portal.

Food & nutrition

We’re thrilled to have an ex-navy chef who prepares fantastic, home-cooked meals, with local ingredients and many of our homegrown vegetables!

We always encourage feedback from our residents, and are always able to adapt menus.

Mealtimes are really important to us. We encourage our residents to eat together as there are so many social and nutritional benefits. However, people can choose to eat their meals in private too, if they prefer. If the weather’s warm enough, we might eat outside.

We also encourage families to come and join their loved ones for meals.
