Residential Care Home in Melton Mowbray

The Amwell is a beautiful, luxury care home located in the market town of Melton Mowbray. Providing outstdanding facilities, en-suite bedrooms decorated to a high standard, and exceptional levels of Residential, Dementia and Respite Care, The Amwell offers superior accommodation for up to 88 residents.

What to Expect from a Residential Care Home 

A residential care home offers accommodation, facilities, and 24-hour personal care to elderly people and those who struggle to live independently. It also offers ‘group living’ and therefore is a great alternative for those who don’t like to live alone or are seeking companionship. 

Care staff are available day and night in a residential care home and provide help with a variety of personal care such as washing, dressing, mobility, and communication. Unlike nursing homes, residential care homes only provide support for this type of care and low-level nursing needs. Community nurses and doctors can be requested to visit residents if more advanced nursing care is identified as needed. 

Residential care enables people to continue living their lives but without the stresses of daily life. All mealtimes are provided as well as social activities, and additional medical services can be arranged, such as visits to a GP and physiotherapy. Some residential care homes may also provide additional care services such as Dementia Care, Respite Care, and in some cases Nursing Care too.

Residential Care at The Amwell Care Home 

At our Melton Mowbray Care Home, we value both quality of care and quality of life. We offer residents a supportive and friendly environment, where they can live their lives the way they want to, with as much or as little assistance as they would like. All of our residents can make use of the facilities we have on offer as much as they wish, such as the Gym, Salon and Cinema Room. We want our residents to know that our home is theirs, and with our daily activities programme, residents can have as much of an active and social lifestyle as they wish. 

We know that the journey of choosing a care home can be a difficult one and it’s important to find the best care for you or your loved one. Prior to joining our family, we offer potential residents and their loved ones the opportunity to have a consultation with our Home Manager to offer guidance and advice and to ensure that we can meet their specific needs.

When a resident lives with us at The Amwell, we provide them with a bespoke care plan that meets their individual requirements. This is also regularly monitored and updated if necessary, so residents and their loved ones can rest assured they are receiving the care that’s right for them. We are always striving for the best for our residents, and our home is rated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who regularly inspects us and other adult health and social care services across England, to ensure we are delivering to a high standard. 

Life in Melton Mowbray 

Thanks to our idyllic location, adjacent to the River Eye, residents benefit from both picturesque views as well as opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Residents are often encouraged to enjoy fresh air, vitamin-D and the peace that nature brings. Whether this is in our landscaped gardens, or out picnicking or strolling in nearby green spaces like Melton Country Park and Play Close, there is plenty of choice for our residents who love to get outside.

No matter what age or interest, Melton Mowbray has an abundance of things to see and do for our residents and their visitors. Melton Carnegie Museum offers an insightful and interesting look into the history of Melton, including the Two-Headed Calf and Red House Door collections. For more leisurely days out, residents can take a stroll into town and grab some Melton delicacies such as pork pies and stilton cheese from Dickinson & Morris Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe

As part of our residential care in Melton Mowbray, we go to great lengths to make the most of our surroundings and build relationships with the local community, such as businesses and schools. We often invite our neighbours to our home for seasonal events and enjoy taking our residents out to them, providing them with plenty of opportunities to socialise. We also welcome residents to utilise our chauffeur-driven Mercedes car for personal errands, excursions, and enjoying the local community.
