Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic

Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.


Regent is a beautiful care home set in the residential area of St John’s, within walking distance of the cathedral city of Worcester. Our care home is easily accessible by bus, rail and road, and benefits from having a library, shops, cafes, pubs and GP surgeries within easy walking distance.

When people visit Regent, they often compliment us on how welcome they are made to feel by a devoted team. Our care and support services include residential care, dementia care and respite care.

The staff are what makes our care home a true home for its residents. Many have been here for several years, including Jill Pearce, who has been our deputy manager for 10 years.

Jill has seen many changes over the years, but the most exciting and rewarding for the team has been the introduction of kradle. Sanctuary Care’s bespoke care planning app was trialled at Regent and because of its success, it is now being rolled out to all of our care homes across the country. The app, downloadable on handheld devices, replaces traditional paper care plans. It means our staff have even more time to spend with residents because they can update their electronic plans at the touch of a button at the point of care.

Our dedicated team going that extra mile

Our wonderful team go above and beyond for their residents. One of the home’s care assistants regularly pops in on her day off to take one of our residential care ladies swimming. She does this regularly simply because she knows how much happiness it brings her. Another visited with her gorgeous pet lambs, which the residents immediately fell in love with. On the subject of animals, we must not forget Regent’s pet cat Sparky! Staff and loved ones are often joined by pets from home when they visit.

Our residents love trips away from the care home to places like the Cob House Country Park near Martley, where they can feed the animals and enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of scrumptious cake. Recently our gents had a fantastic time when they were taken to a sports bar in Worcester, where they played darts and pool while enjoying a pint.

Community

Regent’s residents also welcome people from the community in St John’s and the wider Worcestershire area in to their home. They include students from local schools such as Our Lady Queen of Peace, who also take part in a pen pal scheme with the home. Students who are training to be paramedics and physicians from the University of Worcester often carry out work placements in our home. The residents also love visits from local nursery children, who like to join us for a sing-along. This is a wonderful activity, especially for our residents who live with dementia as it reminds them of a time when they sang nursery rhymes with their own children.

The gardens at Regent are glorious. They are the entire length of the home and many of the bedrooms and lounge areas have patio doors leading out onto them. We are also building raised wooden planters for the residents to enjoy growing their own, plus there is a summer house and water feature.
