What are the rooms like?

Every room at Tabley is different and has its own character, enhanced by people’s personal possessions and decorations. We believe in a home away from home feeling, and all rooms are beautifully and comfortably furnished. We have flexible spaces available for those who would like to share with a friend or loved one as well as a range of single rooms. All bedrooms have private en-suite facilities.

When can people visit?

There is a real family feel at Tabley and we encourage and welcome visitors at any time whether that be sharing time at Tabley or going out for the day. We love families and friends to take part in all aspects of life here at Tabley.

What is there to do?

Redidents are key to choosing the activities and events and we support them to do as much or as little as they like. We speak to residents, their families and friends to develop a plan for care. This looks at a person’s health and care needs alongside those really important aspects of life such as hobbies, preferences and how they like to spend their time and structure their day. This helps us make sure we’re offering the best possible care and support.

We have expert recreational therapists who organise things people enjoy such as crafts, art, games, shopping and pampering sessions such as manicures and pedicures. We also have visiting professionals who offer demonstrations, musical entertainment and many others.

Are residents’ religious denominations and cultural needs catered for?

We provide a monthly interdenominational Church service and can arrange trips to other local church services on request.

Are special dietary requirements catered for?

We are able to offer residents a choice at every meal from a varied, nutritious menu cooked by a professional chef. We will cater for any special dietary requirements.

Is there a safe garden to walk in?

Yes, Tabley House has acres of beautiful parkland with expansive gardens and patio seating.

Are dental treatments and chiropody available?

Chiropody and dental treatments are available on request.

Can a person bring their own furniture and other possessions?

Of course, all rooms can be personalised with a person’s own furniture, pictures and ornaments.

Would someone have to move if their health needs increased?

We support people right through their journey and ensure their needs are met with dignity, respect and empathy. Our care in this area is accredited as Gold Standard.

How is care funded at Tabley House Nursing Home?

People can fund their own care at Tabley House. Please speak to our Matron Karen Lynskey if you have specific questions about funding. If a person is funding their own care, the cost of this may vary depending on a number of factors including the room you choose and the length of stay which Karen will be pleased to chat through.

Some people may qualify for financial assistance – if you need financial assistance, your local authority will decide what level of care you require and look at your income and savings to work out whether you will need to make a contribution towards the cost.

Individuals may be eligible for Attendance Allowance/Disabled Living Allowance (AA/DLA). These are both tax-free, non means-tested weekly benefits. If you’re paying for your own care, you’re likely to be eligible. If you’re receiving funding from the local authority towards your care home costs, this might not be paid as it is effectively included in that funding.
A person might also qualify for Pension Credit. It’s mean-tested, and designed to ensure a minimum guaranteed income for those with limited savings or additional private income.
Contact your local social services department for further information on how to claim.

What happens if my savings run out?

When your savings fall below the upper limits set out by the government, you are likely to be able to qualify for financial assistance. You should contact your local social service department when your savings are approaching this limit, so they’ll know when they need to help.
