Our Facilities

Wordsworth House is a residential care home catering for the over 65’s and those with dementia and physical disability. 

Registered for up to 51 people we are a large home spread out across 3 floors with newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms and shower rooms. Each of our rooms are unique in their size, décor and layout which promotes our person-centred approach to care. 

Residents are encouraged to personalise their space with furniture and belongings from home, with some even choosing to redecorate to suit individual taste.


On the ground floor of the home we have a large communal dining room and two lounge’s looking out onto our beautifully maintained gardens and patio’s. 

We pride ourselves on our family friendly, informal atmosphere that allows all our residents and their loved ones to feel truly at home.


We offer a range of services including day care, respite, interim placements to aid smooth transition from hospital to one’s own home and of course permanent residential care. 

We offer a wide range of activities, home cooked meals and the highest quality care delivered by our well-trained and dedicated team of staff.
