About The Home
Nestled just a stone’s throw from the centre of the historic city of Canterbury; Connors House specialises in dementia care and provides accommodation for upto 46 older people.
Each bedroom has a washbasin, mirror, chair, bed and a wardrobe and some offer en-suite facilities. Residents are encouraged to bring their identity to the home and decorate their room to their own taste, with their own furnishings.
Resident’s guests are welcome to join them in their room and visiting hours are not restricted, we find that our open door policy helps us to create a community within the home.
Staff at the home manage all cleaning and laundry, however, residents sometimes like to help out and carry on a part of their routine.
Pets are very important to the Society as we feel they benefit our residents greatly. Connors House is home to Porridge the rabbit and two birds, Percy and Lucy.
Connors House is split into 3 wings:
Ash & Cedar Suite - Caters for people who may have mild dementia
Holly & Evergreen Suite - Caters for people who have advanced dementia and higher level care needs.
Maple Suite - Caters for people who are not necessarily reliant on 24-hour care, but may need some personal care assistance.
Connors House can also provide short term care. They aim to provide a home from home, giving both the residents and their carer a chance to relax and recharge their batteries. When residents come and stay with us their carers can relax, they have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is safe and being cared for in a homely environment.
Our respite stays include 24-hour care, home cooked meals and the use of dining areas and several living areas in which to relax. We understand that everyone is different so personal preferences are incorporated into our packages, to ensure the highest standard of care that is right for you.
Respite stays also help to build a connection between you and our home; this can be beneficial should a more permanent stay become necessary in the future.
If you are considering respite care and want to find out any more information, the home manager will be happy to talk through the process in more detail.
SampleStay is our free trial for those looking to move into a care home. Selected homes running the promotion offer accommodation, meals and 24 hour care for up to two days, scheduling permitted – all for free.
We understand that moving into a care home can be daunting and choosing the right one is vital to avoiding disruption further down the line, so we want to help make the transition as smooth as possible for the whole family.
Our SampleStay will help you familiarise yourself with the home, staff, meals as well as other residents, meaning that when the time comes to make the move, it will already feel like home and you can be safe in the knowledge that the chosen home is the best place for you or your loved one to be.
