Before coming to live with us, we carry out a thorough pre-assessment visit for anyone who wishes to become a resident.

We also warmly welcome loved ones and visitors and are happy to organise food and drink in the lounge or garden area for you to enjoy during your visit. All we need is someone to let us know in advance, and we’ll sort the rest.

" Old Prebendal House has been a great place for my dad. They have great balance between letting him be independent with the things he can still do, while keeping him safe by recognising when he needs support. We have even been able to arrange family gatherings at the house for Christmas and Birthday celebrations with a stroll in the surrounding grounds. "

Stewart C(Son of Resident, Old Prebendal House)

" The Old Prebendal House has been my mother's home for over five years and it felt like a home rather than a care home. Throughout this time, she has been treated with the utmost care, love and compassion. As she became frailer, we were included in the Old Prebendal family and realised just what a special place this is. They were so gentle and patient and knew just what was needed without being asked. "

Sally O (Daughter of Resident, Old Prebendal House)

" My brother has been in Old Prebendal for over a year now and he is being cared for by wonderful caring staff. The facilities are amazing, he often says it’s a wonderful hotel. I visit often and share his days and all the excellent things he does every day from exercise classes to afternoon teas in the beautiful garden, there is something for everyone who resides at Old Prebendal. I am so happy that my brother is in such good hands. "
