At Acorn Nursing Home residents receive a high standard of care in a friendly, homely atmosphere, where staff respond professionally to the ever-changing needs of each individual.
The dedicated staff is headed by a registered manager, who has many years of experience in caring for the elderly. Managers provide hands-on supervision to maintain our tradition of excellence.
All Staff are DBS checked and trained to an appropriate level, many with NVQ qualifications. Training is sponsored by the company as part of an on-going commitment to training and retaining high quality staff.
As in all our establishments, there is full disabled access, lifts to all floors and specialised equipment is available, e.g. for assisted bathing.

We have full time occupational therapist who is responsible for organising the daily activities. The home is visited by hairdressers and a range of complimentary therapies can be arranged on request at your own cost. A full programme of activities is available to our residents, tailored to their needs and abilities.
Acorn Nursing Home originally established in 1989 was acquired by Regency Healthcare Limited in December 2007. The Home caters for the elderly people who may or may not have nursing needs. Built during the Victorian era it is the former vicarage to All Saints Church and has been extended in keeping with the original stonework. We provide a mixture of single and shared rooms with a small number having en-suite facilities.
Our trained chefs prepare a wide range of home cooked food using fresh local produce. The choice is based on traditional recipes and daily alternatives are provided at every meal time. Special diets are also catered for.
Although there is a non-smoking policy in the home, special smoking zones are designated and both smokers and non-smokers are accommodated in all our care homes. Accommodation is fully inclusive of laundry.
The home welcomes guests funded by Social Services and those who are privately paying clients. This home is inspected and accredited by CQC, in accordance with statutory government regulation.
