supporting your needs
Happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of our passion
With many years of expertise in dementia care, we are able to provide the understanding, expertise, and empathy needed to help our residents live life well, following the person centred relationships that shape the life-enhancing support we provide.
Practitioners providing dementia support receive a training programme that drives a comprehensive understanding of dementia and distress behaviours. The comfort, health, awareness, and wellbeing, of our residents is at the heart of all we offer.
Our approach also takes in an understanding of many non-medical factors, absorbing key details from past experiences and family relationships to precious home memories and more.

A passion for living life well
Coxwell Hall is a vibrant home where we share our positivity and above all our capacity to care. The wellbeing of our residents is at the heart of all we do. From understanding our residents’ individual requirements to building strong supportive relationships with both them and their families. Time here is driven by what our residents want to do, when they want to do it, with lots of activities to choose throughout each day. A salon is also available to ensure residents feel and look their best. Our passion for good food is shared by all, when we join together at mealtimes to enjoy our chef’s latest tempting dish, or get out and about with a trip to the local pub or coffee shop.
Every little detail counts
Learning from the outset about individual details, likes, dislikes, and passions is vital enabling our care team, to build a strong, supportive relationship with every individual.
This background is essential to delivering bespoke, high-quality care. It also gives us insights to plan the type of activities that will make life interesting and pleasurable.
We learn how best to interact, where communication levels have broken down, finding ways to support and understand needs to ensure everything is in place to keep our residents feeling happy, safe and secure, this is one of the primary reasons staff at Coxwell don’t wear uniform, it takes away any authoritative pressures and keeps us integrated and approachable.
There is always something to do at Coxwell Hall, our activities coordinator has a very busy role. As a community we encourage residents to keep active and do as much as they can for themselves, maintaining their interests, something we also encourage through family interactions.
Enrichment through social activities is available for all residents if they wish to participate, and our programs are founded on knowledge of information shared. If people are not busy in the garden or sensory room they may well be baking, a Coxwell favourite, the fragrance of freshly made cake is frequently wafting through the building.
TV facilities are set up for communal enjoyment, and we often enjoy a cinema night at home. Music is also very important to us and something you will always find at Coxwell, sometimes we share musical entertainment with visits from the local school.
Getting out and about
The Coxwell Hall mini bus is available for both residents and relatives to enjoy excursions away from home.
We encourage residents to enjoy outings into the local community accompanied by team members. Regular shopping visits or trips to garden centres are much enjoyed, as are frequent outings to a local pub. Popular trips out to take in the local countryside or go fishing take us a little further afield.
Feeling well, looking better
We know wellbeing is not just about how we feel inside, our hair salon is open to residents every other week with a hairdresser (who is also a qualified nurse practitioner) visiting to make residents feel and look their best.
We also have a Nail and Foot spa in operation to ensure the finer details are looked after too.
Eating well – our passion for food
Our catering team are a welcome part of day to day living here at Coxwell and they communicate with both residents and the nursing team to adapt menus to likes and dislikes, ensuring individual dietary requirements are tailored to each resident.
Seasonal menus reflect availability of produce and our resident’s needs.
Our food is prepared using local quality ingredients to ensure a well-balanced and nutritious diet for all our residents. Our team of professionally trained chefs understand how healthy, appetising food with good nutrition and hydration is essential to the physical and mental well-being of our residents. We often take a trip round the world with an exciting variety of dishes to keep things interesting.
Food matters to us as much as our residents so there are lots of tasting sessions so we know we are always on track with what our residents enjoy.
We also ensure the home from home ethos is maintained, our chefs regularly are found baking with residents and we all enjoy those outcomes! Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day and night as required.
There are no restrictions on visiting times and we do not limit numbers of visitors so families can come together (Unless friends and relatives have been informed of circumstances that may prevent this).
Facilities are not always available for visitors to stay overnight however there are plenty of places to stay locally if families and friends are planning a longer visit.
There are cosy private areas that have been specifically set up for residents to enjoy a cup of tea, and spend time with their visitors, (they can also invite them to their room).
Visitors are also able to visit during meal times and join their relatives or friends for a meal. Relatives are also very welcome to join residents in activities and events. We also welcome well behaved family pets when visiting
