“Castle Grove is a home, not an institution, in which the highest standards of care in first class surroundings are combined with an appreciation of the individual’s needs”.
We are situated in the small, mid-Devon town of Bampton close to picturesque Exmoor. Bampton is a consistent winner in the Britain in Bloom Awards. Situated in four acres of beautiful grounds, the listed Georgian building was once the home of Sir Christopher and Lady Codrington.
The high quality of trained staff has been recognised through Training Awards, and more recently by the re-recognition as Investors in People. This reflects in the day-to-day pro-active approach to the welfare of our clients through Care Plans, Nutritional Assessments, Activities and Entertainments, and Outings. Examples of these are the Christmas Pantomine Concerts, Burns Night, Coach Trips, Birthday Parties and many other “special” occasions. The weekly sherry party on Sunday before the Silver-Service lunch serves to engender the close-knit family atmosphere which the residents enjoy.
Other activities such as Armchair Exercises, Flower Arranging, Art Activities and Quizzes all serve to stimulate and encourage interest and independence at all levels. Hairdressing, chiropody, aromatherapy and “facials” are all available here.
We welcome pets at Castle Grove and currently enjoy Dogs, Cats, and Goldfish. Added to this, the numerous birdbaths and birdfeeders around ensure a plentiful supply of wildlife.
Residents are encouraged to bring as much furniture and memorabilia as possible to personalise their en-suite bed-sitting rooms. The level walk into Bampton encourages independence and a choice of shops, tea-rooms, post office and library. Our regular newsletter helps maintain links with relatives and friends and reminds residents of future events and celebrations.
