The Hawthorns is a purpose-built residential care home, enjoying an excellent reputation and location in the heart of Wilmslow. The home is spacious and well maintained, with a number of pleasant indoor and outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy.
We have 39 single rooms available, five of which have en-suite facilities. All our rooms are comfortable and spacious. A number have telephone points; all have television points.
There are a number of spacious lounges and dining rooms and an activity room within The Hawthorns. One of the lounges is fitted with a hearing loop, a discreet device to improve sound reception and aid those with hearing difficulties. There is also a pleasant, private garden and patio area to relax in with easy wheelchair access.
A number of services are available to residents. For example, a hairdresser visits on a weekly basis; newspaper and magazine deliveries are arranged with a local newsagent and a shop / trolley service is available for items such as greeting cards and personal toiletries.
There is an activities co-ordinator who arranges a wide choice of activities, according to residents’ interests. These include arts and crafts sessions, bingo evenings, tea dances, birthday parties, musical entertainment, trips to shopping centres, sing-a-longs, reminiscence sessions, film shows, pub lunches and excursions such as canal boat trips, visits to garden centres or other attractions such as zoos or museums.
A daily menu choice is displayed in large print. Menus are varied over five weeks and seasonal menus offered. We aim to make mealtimes a central part of the day and an enjoyable social occasion. Varied snacks and treats are also provided.
The Hawthorns is regularly visited by ministers from a number of denominations and there is the opportunity to visit local churches. Communion services and communal worship take place within the home, and there is a room available for private worship or meeting with church representatives.
