Life at Wentworth Court is tailored to the likes and needs of every resident – from individualised bedrooms, meal plans and activities, to the delivery of high-quality daily care and nursing support.
We place great emphasis is on person-centred care – ensuring that we meet the individual needs of each resident.
Our supportive team, who have all undertaken specialist dementia training, are committed to developing a stimulating environment for residents where they can do as much or as little as they like – with daily opportunities for socialising and engaging with others, should they wish.
Research shows how beneficial activities can be to individuals’ when needs are met, and we see first-hand the evidence of happier and healthier residents following from meaningful activity.
Our activities programme is designed to be positive and person-centred – offering a wide range including music and movement, reminiscence, pamper sessions, arts and crafts, trips out, gardening, and films in the cinema room.
We have been trained to lead gentle Oomph exercises, that help residents’ physical and mental well-being by strengthening muscles and helping to lift mood, either in group sessions or one-to-one using props that are colourful and sensory.
Linking with our community has resulted in a regular church service in the home, monthly coffee mornings, sing-alongs with Mindsong charity volunteers, weekly exercise sessions with GFitness, seated dance exercise with Golden Toes and great entertainers coming into our home.
We are committed to engagement with our local community and in particular intergenerational work with local schools. Watch our video about the English Garden Party project that we recently developed in partnership with the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham and Hester’s Way primary school.

“Dad spent the last five months of his life at Wentworth following a hip fracture. We discovered a very dedicated and friendly team who always make time to talk with family, Wentworth Court really did become like an extended family to us… Dad enjoyed the freedom he was given here and relaxing in the wonderful garden with the chickens…
