Freelands Croft is dedicated to caring for those with dementia, from early onset to more complex end-of-life needs.

Staff help residents to live well, with respect and understanding. The home provides all types of dementia care – from nursing, residential to short-stay care.

There are 64 lovely rooms, and the home will always do its best to accommodate couples.

Each of the comfortable en-suite bedrooms features their own accessible wet room, flat-screen TV and 24-hour nurse call system and many have views of their large landscaped gardens that wrap around the home. There are lots of places to choose from for some company or tranquillity.

Freelands Croft has four lounges, and a huge wrap-around garden is perfect for a gentle stroll. Seaside and woodland décor help to bring the outdoors in.

Residents can enjoy a bit of pampering in the hair salon, pop into the vintage-style café, or see a movie in the home cinema. The reminiscence room helps to recapture memories from the past.

Good food is so important for many reasons. Tempting meals and snacks can be enjoyed in the bright and airy dining rooms or in the comfort of the resident’s own room. Soon after a resident arrives at Freelands, staff discuss their personal preferences and dietary needs with them.

There’s a real sense of community at the home. The staff work to discover what residents enjoy doing and the home’s social calendar is organised around those interests. Visiting musicians, curry and quiz nights, and musical bingo are examples of some of the activities residents can experience, alongside weekly outings, arts and crafts, cinema club or coffee mornings.
