Edgehill Care Home in Liden, Swindon

Edgehill Care Home in Swindon provides affordable residential, respite and palliative care for people aged 65+ with dementia or serious mental health care needs.

We have a wealth of specialist experience of caring for people with mixed dementia, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.

We’ll get to know you through a comprehensive needs assessment. But more than that, we’ll take time to gradually build a detailed picture of you as a person – your background, what’s important to you and your interests. With as much information as possible we can precisely tailor our care and support to you.

As our residents’ needs change, so do the level and type of care they receive from us. We care for you as an individual, surrounded by all the benefits of living in a supportive community.

As well as caring for our residents we care about their families too. We don’t have set visiting times, and our door is always open for a chat. We also have a quarterly residents’ and families’ forum.

Call us on 01793 641 189 to find out more. We’d love to introduce you to the home, our staff and our residents.

About our home

At Edgehill we’ve created a relaxed and homely environment for all our residents. We have three comfortable, spacious lounges, a conservatory and a dining room. There’s plenty of space for group activities, or somewhere to find a quieter spot.

Residents and visitors are welcome to use the free Edgehill Wi-Fi. All our care homes have an iPad for residents to use – Skype calls work really well – and for families to use when they visit.

We have a lovely enclosed, secure and well-established garden with a large lawn and flowerbeds. On sunny days there’s plenty of room to sit out on patios or the deck.

There’s plenty of parking for visitors.

The bedrooms at Edgehill

There are 60 single bedrooms at Edgehill across the ground floor.

One room can be used as a double room to accommodate a couple who wish to remain together, with their other room used as a lounge.

All our rooms have en-suites or washbasins in the room. Rooms without en-suites have accessible wetrooms and bathrooms nearby.

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 Agincare induction and training before starting at Edgehill.

We have staff champions for dementia, dignity, nutrition and hydration and activities.

We also have staff leads for whistleblowing and safeguarding.

Social activities

A professional who recently visited the home said she often refers to Edgehill as more of a social club, as there’s always something going on in the home. People can get involved in a range of activities to meet their social needs and feel included.

The home has a whole range of activities and events taking place each month. No two days are alike. We tailor our activities to meet most people’s preferences. Some examples of activities are:

  • Visiting the local café for coffee and cake
  • Arts and crafts
  • A range of musical entertainers
  • Gardening
  • Visits from llamas and birds of prey
  • Prize bingo
  • Trips out to the coast, garden centres, pub lunches, museums and local beauty spots

Being part of the local community in Swindon is important to us, so our care home residents are connected, not isolated. Representatives from our local church visit each week.

We can also provide:

  • Hairdressing
  • Chiropodist services

Food and nutrition

Good, wholesome home-cooked food is essential at a care home. Mealtimes at Edgehill are more than simply times to eat, they are opportunities to enjoy the company of fellow residents, friends and family.

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, if they prefer.

We have four experienced cooks who prepare traditional home-cooked meals. Our cooks always ask for feedback from our residents, and are more than willing to adapt menus. Our kitchen staff have received a 4* ‘Good’ rating from the Food Standards Agency.

We have picture and written menus, but we always re-offer before serving, to check our residents haven’t changed their minds about what they’d like to eat.

What residents & their families say about Edgehill Care Home in Swindon

We live away in Sweden so it is good to know that my mother is well looked after. Unfortunately, we are unable to visit too often but communication with the home is good.

CA- Daughter of Resident

My father came into the home skeletal. Very poorly. 18 months later, with the excellent care and support from the staff and management, he is a different person. He has put on weight and is happy. He has a very good rapport with all staff. He is safe and secure and is treated with dignity.

Colin V – Son of Resident

We visit every week or two. The food always looks delicious. The staff are welcoming, friendly and fantastic with the residents, always kind and caring. We are also impressed by the amount of activities that are arranged.

JE – Friend of Resident

My mother has been a resident for a few years now, so Edgehill feels like a real home. For Mum; its a safe, friendly environment. For me; they give me reassurance and confidence my precious package (Mum) is being cared for and protected.
