One of Blackbrook's wonderful bedrooms


Blackbrook House - Supporting Independent Living

4th December 2017

One of the main concerns for older people considering moving into a care home is the potential loss of independence. Blackbrook House Residential Care Home enables the elderly to continue living an independent lifestyle in a safe, secure environment with the peace of mind that 24 hour care is available whenever needed. Some of the ways we help our elderly residents remain independent include:


  • Individual, unique bedrooms to give residents special, personal space to use as they please. 
  • Ensuite bathrooms to all rooms with call bells and specialist seating arrangements if needed 
  • Staff encourage making choices about care, for example, whether to self medicate. 
  • Lift, stairlifts and ramps to enable easy movement around the house. 
  • Path around the house making the garden accessible to all. 
  • Plenty of meal options throughout the day and choices about trip and activities. 
  • Regular residents meetings where view about trips, activities, food and more can be put forward. 


Please get in touch with any questions you may have.
