A dedicated staff team
Led by an experienced and qualified Manager, the staff at Knappe Cross work as a team committed to the Halcyon Care philosophy. Every effort is made to provide individual care which promotes privacy and dignity and to understand each resident's needs and preferences. Registered nurses are on duty throughout the day and night, supported by well trained care assistants. All staff participate in the home's training programme and personal development scheme.
We are committed to residents' personal health and wellbeing
Knappe Cross provides a home where residents are helped to retain their independence and be involved in their care. The emphasis is on quality and enjoyment of life. We are not just caring for you, we care about you.
All meals are created by our own catering team. Fresh produce is used and residents are involved in developing menu choices. Beverages and snacks are available at any time night and day. Meals are served in the dining room and can be taken in your own room should you choose. Individual diets and personal preferences are catered for.
We believe it is important to keep active and to make the most of every day. Events at Knappe Cross include visiting singers and entertainers, a weekly programme of varied activities: carpet bowls, bingo, baking, craft sessions and outings are arranged to places of interest.
Our fees are based on choice of accommodation, individual care needs and any other special requirements. For information on Knappe Cross' fee structure please contact the Manager who will be happy to assist.
Four of the rooms are also registered as companion rooms. Dining and lounge facilities are situated at ground floor level all with views of the gardens. One of the lounges is used more for family teas or special occasions. The large garden is well maintained with flowering plants, trees and lawned area. There is also an extensive patio which is accessible to the residents. On the first floor there is a "chapel" which provides the opportunity for quiet times.
You need not be alone at Knappe Cross. You will meet new friends and have the opportunity of joining in with the regular activities and entertainment. Visitors are welcome at any time and the home is very much involved in village activity.
We aim to treat everyone as an individual with dignity, respect and encourage them to make the most of their stay with us.
