St. Bernards Residential Care provides Individual Care, Residential Care, Respite Care, Dementia Care and Day Care for the elderly.
Understanding & Kindness
St. Bernards has been looking after the elderly since 1982. We pride ourselves with family values such as love, compassion, understanding and kindness. We treat everyone who enters our home with dignity and respect with a proactive approach to individual care. Our Care Plans are all digital, through ‘Nourish Care Plans’ where staff are able to spend more time with residents, and record all important information safely.

At St Bernards we have created a home for our residents, this has been achieved over many years of hard work. through observing and developing successful care practices.
Each resident is treated as an individual, which it is central to our care. Residents each have an assigned ‘Key Worker’, whose aim is to build a loving compassionate relationship. A pivotal part of the Key Worker programme is to create a ‘Life History’, as everyone has a story.
Our superb carers ensure that every day needs are met whether that is to help with washing or dressing or round the clock assistance.
We have a dedicated catering team, Wilson Vale Catering, who provide wonderful home-made food using fresh vegetables and ingredients every day. Individual needs, diets and preferences, such as gluten free or vegan options are provided.
At the heart of our care is ensuring residents have the chance to take part in meaningful activities suited to them, not just one size fits all.
We have a beautiful garden and residents are encouraged to take part in and get as much fresh air as possible. Many of our rooms overlook and have access to the garden.
At St. Bernards we have always treated our residents with dignity, respect, love and compassion that they deserve. Coupled with a progressive, creative and meaningful approach, it is our emphasis on providing training and learning opportunities for our staff.
Living with Dementia doesn’t have to feel challenging or lonely, at the centre of our care is the focus on a “common sense” approach. Our home is designed to cater for each residents needs.

We take a holistic approach to dementia, creating a sensory experience through ‘touch’ and creating the right ‘ambiance’ throughout is at the heart of what we try to achieve.

What People are Saying
I cannot praise the home and staff enough. The care is fantastic. Mom always looked immaculate and the staff interact with the residents all the time. There are activities on every day or the staff take the residents out on trips down to the beautiful gardens.
My mother entered the care home in November 2017. The staff are very caring and quite tactile. This has helped my mother settle quickly and she is more happy and contented than I have seen her for a long time. The care home is like a hotel rather than an institution.
