Food should be enjoyed however you want to. We have thought long and hard about what our residents like to eat and how they like meals to be served. We found that food and the social aspect surrounding it is something that most people hold dear; it evokes memories of different eras in one’s life, various people, and celebration. We think that in itself is something worth savouring.
We have created lovely welcoming spaces within Leycester House for meals and snacks - variety is the order of the day. There is the main bar and bistro, thoughtfully divided up into areas where people can enjoy a meal together, and places where couples, individuals and small groups can easily congregate to chat and relax over coffee and biscuits.
The jewel in the crown for the foodies among you will be the fine dining room. Our residents are welcome to invite their families into the home for dinner, a special birthday, or just because they feel like it.
That's what sets this care home apart from the others – attention to the real desires of the individual, not just words. When we say that we want our residents to treat it as their home, we mean it. Having space to invite your friends round in turn makes visiting hours longer, more relaxed, more enjoyable. Ask to see our fine dining and bistro menus.
Who doesn't love a great night out? Or a grand night in. At Leycester House you will never be left wondering what to do. Of course if you'd like your peace and quiet then that is your wont and your wishes are always respected, but on the nights you fancy putting on your glad rags, you can rest assured that the variety of fun on offer at Leycester House will never disappoint.
From singers & performers to roulette tables and wine tastings – our events programme is only limited by our combined imagination. There are activities for everyone, all week, whether you love painting, or reminiscing, or just walking around the gardens admiring the planting, there will always be some sort of structured activity for you to join in as frequently as you wish.
The specific nature and timing of activities offered are decided by our residents and we will always do our best to facilitate their choice. Below are some examples of the type of activities favoured by our residents:
One look around Leycester House and you will soon see the care and attention which has been employed in furnishing the home. We have followed a painstaking design process bringing in all sorts of different ideas, to achieve a look that is uniquely Leycester House. The pictures on the walls, the carpets and the curtains and the wallpapers are all chosen to create different moods, to relax and entertain, to blend away and to stand out. The main aim is to make the place feel like home. Something - we think you’ll agree - special.
Non-intrusive therapy that involves working with the feet and lower legs to restore different areas of the body. A wonderfully relaxing treatment for residents who have limited mobility, or those who simply feel their bodies need an energy boost.
An ancient treatment, this gentle massage to the upper back, shoulders, neck, head and face has numerous health benefits including increased circulation and muscle tone, and improved immunity.
A traditional Japanese treatment that reduces stress, aids relaxation, and promotes healing. It’s a gentle treatment that is carried out by our Reiki Master.
Whether you’re after a new style, a quick refresh and tidy, or a wash and blow dry in advance of an outing or social event, our stylists are available at all times.
Perfect nails whenever you feel like a pick-me-up.
Our outdoor areas are all landscaped and will become a vibrant display of colour in the spring and summer. If you fancy adding to the beauty then carry on! It's your own garden so why not join our gardening club and help shape the look for everyone to enjoy? When the weather is right, outdoor dining and entertainment is top of the list of activities.
