Quality Care Home in Kent ~ Folkestone

We aim to provide a homely and caring environment in which the residents can feel happy and comfortable, with a feeling of self-worth.

We also believe in ensuring that each resident is given the choices that each of us have in our daily lives, such as having visitors at any time, privacy when required, a varied and healthy diet and no restrictions placed on their environment.

To achieve this, we staff our Home with well-trained staff round-the-clock and teach them to understand the physical and psychological needs of our residents so that they can care for them in a loving, caring and professional way.

We make sure that our staff receives extensive training and support to enable them to give our residents the best possible care with compassion and empathy whilst still promoting our core principles of independence, respect, trust and the importance of involvement from family and friends.

Regular Activities

At Cumbria House Care Home, we believe in the importance of providing regular activities for our residents, which are designed to not only mentally and physically stimulate the people we care for, but also enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self-worth, whilst encouraging social interaction.

There are a variety of activity programs which are organized to provide our residents with varied, enjoyable and fulfilling activities. We recognize the importance of mental stimulation and the benefits of enjoyable pastimes and the opportunity for individuals to indulge in their interests and hobbies. We will always try to encourage our residents to take part in all events and activities. However, it is entirely up to the resident on how they spend their time and how many activities they choose to join.

We have a library of books and films, which is changed frequently. Drawing and painting sessions, quizzes, board games, cards and crafts are just a few of the activities organized on a regular basis.

Regular Resident Meetings

We also holds resident meetings at the Home. This helps each resident to relay any comments that they may have, and we also use it as a communal get-together where we can let all our clients know what is going on in the Home and within the Company.
