We have a team of compassionate and highly-trained professionals who offer our residents around-the-clock Nursing, Residential, Dementia and Respite Care. When a resident moves into Penrose Court, they can expect our team to work closely with them and their loved ones to curate a care plan that meets their individual needs and interests. These plans are then constantly monitored by our professionals and changed if necessary.

Our residential care home is also proud to be regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Nursing Care

For those who need assistance with both medical and personal living needs, Nursing Care is the most appropriate form of support. Our home in Bedfordshire has a dedicated team of nurses who provide 24-hour care to our residents who have higher dependence requirements, physical disabilities, and long-term health conditions.

With our around-the-clock care and bespoke Nursing Care plans, we can ensure that residents are receiving the exact care and support that is needed for them, no matter when they need it.

Residential Care

Residential Care provides support and personal care for older people who can live independently most of the time but may be looking for the companionship that comes with a nursing home, or who may just need that extra level of help with day-to-day living. 

Like with all types of care we offer, through a combination of care, facilities and activities, we can ensure that all the needs of our residents are fully met. Residents of Penrose Court who require Residential Care can receive as little or as much assistance as they need at all times of the day and we can easily adapt to nursing care if their needs change.

Dementia Care 

We are very proud that our care home in Biggleswade has been designed to provide around-the-clock support and care for those living with Dementia. At Penrose Court, we have worked hard to create a safe and supportive environment that enables our residents with dementia to make the most of every day.

In order to do this, our specialised staff receives ongoing training and resources and our Activity Coordinators produce a thoroughly planned programme that includes dementia-friendly activities. Collaborating with our dementia residents and their families means that we can provide the very best person-centred care for them as well as enhance our overall approach to Dementia Care.

Respite Care 

Respite Care has been designed to provide short-term care for residents and this could be for a number of reasons. Many people choose this form of care as they transition out of hospital after an operation or being treated for an illness. They are also an ideal solution for carers who may simply need a break or some time off for themselves and their needs.

The length of stay in Respite Care can vary from a week to several months, or as long as required for the resident or carer to get back on their feet. During this time, residents will benefit from 24/7 care, socialising, and making full use of our facilities and activities programme. It is also a great opportunity for those to experience a care home and helps decide whether going into a care home full-time is the right decision for them.
