Windy Ridge Care Home is in Barton-on-sea, in the county of Hampshire, and caters to service users who require nursing care or have mental health problems such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. The home is located within walking distance of the sea front, and therefore is a regular outing, often via the ice-cream parlour, of course. The home also benefits from access to the mini bus at our sister home Birchy Hill and trips out into the local area are enjoyed.
The home is an older style seaside home, which is revealed in the home’s decor. The home can care for 21 service users, in mostly single rooms. We also have some double rooms, allowing this facility, over the years, to enable married couples to stay together. The home has a large lounge/diner, as well as a large conservatory that overlooks our garden. Our lovely garden compliments the home and includes seating areas and flower beds, which enable those who wish to continue their gardening hobby to do so. It is a well-used space, especially at party time, and has many features, including a seaside area.
Being in the village of Barton-on-sea, and close to the town of New Milton, affords good local transport links, ensuring family and friends can visit often. The home also benefits from a car park.
The home is tastefully decorated, and the service users have had an input into the décor. We truly feel the home is their home, and the service users direct the business accordingly.
Our qualified chefs meet regularly with the service users to develop and review the menus. All meals are prepared in-house from fresh produce to ensure a high quality of food is maintained and a good dining experience is achieved. We feel meal times are a very important part of our day and understand that everyone is different, so we go to great lengths to ensure all needs and wishes are met. All special dietary requirements are able to be accommodated.
“The team at Windy Ridge give a personal and individual welcome to our service users, relatives, and friends. We offer a warm, open approach to all concerned, in a safe caring environment. We are a real home away from home with specialised clinical support, where everyone is equal, showing both dignity and respect at all times, including an open visiting philosophy…”
