Rowanweald Residential and Nursing Home in Harrow1 Weald Lane, Harrow Weald, Harrow, London, HA3 5EG
Tucked behind Harrow's high street, our residential and nursing home is set away from the hustle and bustle of London and surrounds a pretty central courtyard garden.
Rowanweald boasts another outdoor space which holds a special place in all our hearts. 'Helen's Rooftop Garden' is a beautiful spot, with potted sensory plants and comfortable seating. The garden is named after a resident who has sadly passed away and is situated on the secure balcony of the home. The area is a real focal point, especially in the warmer months. It's our very own sun terrace and is a lovely place for residents receiving residential care to socialise.
We have an activities timetable filled with stimulating group and person-centred activities. One day you can find us hosting a dementia café for people from the local Harrow community. The next we could be transporting our residents into the heart of Australia to discover new flavours and cultures in the heart of the home.
More recently you are likely to find us making the most of our care home technology, having invested in a new ‘experience table’. With interactive light games designed especially for people living in the mid-to-late-stages of dementia, it brings people together in a calming but stimulating environment. There are a number of games, which feature projected images of flowers, balls and even goldfish! Residents reach out to touch the images, which respond to their physical movements.
Four-legged friends, including dogs, ponies and rabbits, often visit for animal therapy sessions. As you can imagine these activities are very popular and help to bring back happy memories for residents who once had their own pets. They are also extremely beneficial for our residents receiving nursing care, as they can provide one-to-one interaction, often in the comfort of their own bedroom.
We frequently welcome new faces from across Harrow into the home as we host a string of family-friendly events. From swinging sixties Silver Sunday tea parties to our Great British Sports Day, we are always thinking outside the box to make our celebrations as engaging as possible.
Rowanweald is our residents’ home, so engaging with their loved ones is at the heart of everything we do. We host regular relatives’ and residents’ meetings, empowering our residents and their loved ones to have direct involvement in what happens in their home.
High-quality care home in Harrow rated Good by CQC
We provide a range of high-quality care, including nursing care, residential dementia care and residential care, shaped by our residents’ personal and cultural needs. Our team also pride themselves on the support we give to their loved ones. The reassuring voice at the end of the phone or a hug on harder days, our caring staff give Rowanweald that family feel.
And we are not alone in thinking so. The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the care sector watchdog, rated us ‘Good’ across every area, including "Caring". Inspectors spoke with staff, residents and their families. One of the countless lovely comments in the glowing report read: “It’s a great privilege to be here and we are treated with dignity and respect”.
Stories from the home
Our activities are truly person-centred so when someone said “I wish we could visit Romania”, we did just that but virtually.
Chickens, rabbits and more!
Many of our residents adore animals and our regular animal therapy sessions are a popular highlight and also very relaxing.
Every year we invite the community to join us on our summer cruise. This year was no different and we had a fab day ‘down under’.
As you can tell our lounges are a hub of activity, but they are also a great and welcoming place to enjoy a cuppa with family.
A place to call home
Our bedrooms are spacious, bright and tastefully decorated, the perfect place to start a new chapter.
