Reviews & Ratings
Don't just take our word for it
Brentwood Care Centre has a very warm and welcoming feel as soon as you arrive. My mother has settled in very quickly despite a stressful move when her old home closed down. I am extremely happy to see her so settled. Brentwood Care Centre is wonderful!
Daughter of Resident
Our team takes a considered approach to dementia-friendly activities and meaningful engagement – supporting our residents who live with dementia to still experience happiness, comfort and contentment.
With a deep knowledge of people’s life histories, we are able to encourage positive reminiscence and create a safe and supportive environment where people feel comfortable taking part in both familiar and new activities, trips and events.
Activities & events
Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Brentwood Care Centre is a key focus for our dedicated team.
By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.
No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.
In addition to art therapy, keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, baking, and quizzes. We also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.
Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, taking in a movie at the cinema and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year – complete with themed menus and decorations!
Food & nutrition
We are proud of the high quality of our meals here at Brentwood Care Centre which are carefully designed to be enjoyable whilst providing balanced nutrition to our residents.
They are lovingly cooked and prepared by our in-house catering team and follow the seasons.
Regularly rotating menus ensure we always have meals which cater to our residents’ likes and dislikes, including those who require modified or specialist diets.
To create a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere for our residents to enjoy their mealtimes, our tables are lovingly laid with crisp table linen, menus clearly showing what’s on offer and cutlery and dinnerware which supports their independence.
