Life at Halliwell

Alongside excellent care, we believe in providing the very best lifestyle for our residents. Residents, and our staff share in the desire to make this a reality with consultation and discussion on what they enjoy, want to experience or where to visit.

Halliwell is first and foremost home with comfortable environments, where residents feel genuinely at home. The highest standards of comfort and cleanliness are as important as the tasty, daily meals. We understand the importance of eating well and the enjoyment of eating together with friends. The daily menus provide plenty of variety, are freshly prepared and use seasonal ingredients.

We include residents and their feedback in how the home is run and what activities to organise. The social side of living at Halliwell is important to residents and staff alike. We have regular resident and family meetings and an open-door policy so that all our staff are open to conversations and feedback at any time.

Along with our excellent staffing levels, our staff inject energy, companionship and conversation into their daily care routines and there is always someone to ask after you or chat to.

Our Homes are up to date with the very best equipment to assist the team in going about their duties and ensuring the comfort and safety of those they care for.

We work hard to provide a range of interesting and stimulating activities and arrange for visitors from the community to entertain, interact and add to daily life and experiences on a regular basis.

With a variety of lounges, quiet spaces and beautiful gardens, there are plenty of places to relax and chat, play board games, read or to share a cup of tea or an evening drink. There are also quiet spaces for reflection and places to relax with family and friends.

Activities at Halliwell

Our social engagement team takes time to get to know every resident, to understand their hobbies and interests and to ensure that they can continue to enjoy doing the thing they have always loved, as well as taking part in new activities and learn new skills.

There is a wide variety of entertainment and regular local outings in our minibus. With a continuous programme of events, the social calendar is focused on encouraging participation, learning new skills and social interaction.

Our General Manager Eileen is very much involved in home activities, ensuring that the wellbeing of residents remains high on her agenda. This has culminated in the success of the long standing Halliwell “Wells Choir”, which she conducts. The Wells Choir performs publicly with a summer concert and Christmas Carols which are a much-loved annual event. Art is also a feature at Halliwell with the addition of a dedicated art room. Many residents have found a new talent for painting and the artworks throughout the home showcase these new skills and enjoyment.

Alongside the Art Club and musical rehearsals and concerts there are regular Knit & Natter sessions in the library, afternoon tea in the tea room, weekly Keep Fit and reading sessions and even a recent Dog Show.

Visitors also provide a further range of entertainment, including cellists, pianists and singers.

We understand that the dining experience is an integral part of our residents’ lives. We appreciate the importance of a good, nutritious and varied diet, enjoyed in the company of others. It is this commitment to residents’ enjoyment and choice that drives our attention to ensuring exceptional culinary offerings.

We take pride in our award-winning restaurant-style dining, where delicious meals are carefully crafted to cater to diverse palates and dietary preferences. Our chefs source the finest ingredients to prepare delicious and nutritious dishes that ensure both enjoyment and health. Daily menus offer plenty of choice for all and our chefs will cater to individual requirements or favourites.
