  • Our Knebworth care home is all about enjoying a superb lifestyle and quality care in beautiful surroundings.
     
    Our experienced team provides permanent nursing and residential care, including care for people who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
     
    We work closely with you and your loved one to understand their life history, skills and the people and places that are important to them. And, because we believe that life doesn’t stop when a person moves into a care home, we also find out their wishes and aims for the future. Then we create care and lifestyle plans that reflect your loved ones needs, wishes and preferences, that enable them to live each day in the way they want.
     
    At our Knebworth care home we’re dedicated to enabling residents to enjoy rewarding activities and meaningful experiences every day. Some residents find meaning and purpose from helping out around the home, folding laundry, laying the tables for lunch, or helping out in the garden.
     
    Our lifestyle coordinators also plan fun group and one-to-one activities tailored to residents’ hobbies and interests. We also get out and about whenever we can, to the shops, a local pub for lunch, or a stately home. However, there’s lots to keep us occupied in our beautiful home, including a pub and café, a cinema lounge and a hair and beauty salon
