Herons Park, Royal Bay Care Homes

Herons Park, Royal Bay Care Homes

Award: Gold

Heron’s Park is part of the Royal Bay group of nursing homes. A large house has been extended on three floors; the first floor now being the dementia unit. This unit has 34 bedrooms in three wings with a dementia garden on the ground floor accessed via stairs and a lift. The communal rooms comprise a sitting room with a large dining room beyond. There are two conservatory rooms and a quiet lounge. The resident group are people with dementia who are also very physically impaired. The highlights of this dementia unit are the good use of light both natural and artificial, a comfortable, homely style and the adjacent parkland which is very visible from the conservatory areas. The fact that there is a dining room for more than ten people is not an issue in this unit, since most people are too frail to use the dining room.
