Regency Hall is a registered care home for up to 68 residents at any time. After an extensive refurbishment project, taking many months, you will find the Home lovingly restored and designed to reflect Pendlebury Care Homes’s belief and experience that individuals respond to quality and spacious surroundings whilst creating a homely atmosphere. Built circa 1856, the ground floor of the original building offers 9 spacious bedrooms and living and dining areas, conservatory and access to the large outdoor space with a dementia sensory garden, patio areas and raised flower vegetable beds can be found.
The first floor of the building has 13 bedrooms, lounge and dining room. The rooms and corridors are bright and spacious. The Restoration is quite something to behold.
The 4 storey extension onto the original building has 3 floors of living accommodation and bedrooms, whilst the top floor has been transformed into a spacious area including a kitchen/ diner, hairdressing salon and nail bar, IT and media suite, toilets and comfortable sitting area. All areas of the building are accessible via a lift.
Reminiscence areas prompt conversation and memories, generous communal areas encourage activity, community and friendship.
At Regency Hall we focus on each person’s therapeutic and social needs by understanding peoples’ interests, skills, life history, personality and medical condition. That’s why we offer a range of activities designed to encourage participation and interest.
Staff will assist residents to pursue their chosen hobby wherever possible.
