Finding the right care home in Northampton

Choosing a care home for a loved one can be difficult, however with 58 care homes in Northampton, and 41 rated Good or Outstanding by the Care Quality Commision (CQC), there’s plenty to choose from. Here are a few of our top tips to help you narrow your options and find the right care home.

Location, location, location

When researching care homes, think about where visitors will be travelling from and what transportation they have access to. In Northampton, the public transport is excellent and you will find most care homes are on well serviced bus routes, or have small car parks. It is always best when you speak to a home to ask about transport options, as you may find it is just as easy for someone to visit something centrally located as it is to go slightly out of town, to a care home like the Brampton View Care Home which is in the picturesque Northamptonshire countryside and yet only 10-minutes drive from Northampton town center.

How to get the 'at home' feeling

As well as thinking about how friends and family will visit, or which part of Northampton your loved one currently lives in, it is vital to think about their lifestyle and what would help make them feel happy doing in the care home. Below are a few things to consider that will help make this change as smooth as possible for your loved one:

Care homes with gardens

Having outdoor space can mean a lot to people, but think specifically about what your loved one likes to do. If they are a keen gardener or have been growing vegetables for years and want to continue when at the care home, then we would recommend checking with the individual homes to understand what is possible. However, if they just want somewhere that they can sit and enjoy the sun, then perhaps somewhere with a slightly smaller garden but with a lovely seating area like Collingtree Park would suit better.

Pet friendly care homes

Many care homes in Northampton are pet friendly, with most having regularly organised ‘therapet’ visits, where calm and friendly dogs and cats visit to provide companionship to animal-loving residents. There are a number of care homes, like Burlington Court, which would allow your loved one’s pet to visit them frequently when in the home and some may even allow the pet to move in with the resident. It is recommended to speak to the care home to find out more about their pet policy, if this is something that is important to your loved one.

Care home activities and days out

All care homes in Northampton offer residents a wide range of activities, including exercise classes, movie nights, cooking or arts and crafts. However, they all also have quiet rooms and spaces if people would like to read or spend some time reminiscing. Many, like the Ashurst Mews Care Home, also try to organise days out to the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Althorp House or simply to go get some fish and chips. They also plan a variety of entertainment in the home, for example monthly visits of exotic animals and birds from the team at Zoo Lab. Care homes are always looking for new ideas and to help people feel more at home, so be sure to ask what activities homes offer residents when you call.
