Overton House, Cottingham
Overton House is a specialist dementia care home for 40 people and was recently remodelled following an internal review, feedback from residents and families and our own research on current best practice. The remodel resulted in the award for “Best External Design for Dementia” in the National Dementia Care Awards. We have many amenities including a kitchen for the use of residents and family, a hairdressers and a dedicated Activities Coordinator. We also have three gardens where residents can grow vegetables and flowers.
The Manager writes...........
The support team at Overton House, an enhanced Dementia care Home, are committed to ensuring residents and family inclusion for a truly person-centred value base.
With a skilled and empathetic support team, care needs are met in a variety of supportive and bespoke ways with active lives being at the heart of the home.
Activities have included a Strictly Ballroom afternoon with local dancers, Mad Hatters afternoon tea parties, trips out to shops and with friends and in house baking competitions and tastings!
We recognise that supporting people is a privilege and that families or friends also play a strong part in peoples lives and our support extends out of the home to you also with involvement in our events and time out with a coffee when you visit.
With beautiful garden rooms and safe supportive gardens the home extends beyond its walls to welcome and support you and your family.
