In the original Brendon House, there are 15 single rooms, most with en-suite facilities or private bathroom, a dining room and sitting room overlooking the enclosed garden. A further 25 ground-floor rooms are located in the nursing households, some with en-suite facilities and many with a door leading to the garden. These rooms enjoy access to the McAndrew Room, a large communal area with views of the garden which is used as a sitting room, dining room and as a focal point for many of the social activities within the home. Most of the bedrooms have a view of the attractive mature gardens. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and cherished personal possessions and to arrange their room as they choose so that it really feels like home. The entrance hall and welcoming sitting rooms are attractively furnished and provide a comfortable atmosphere where people can spend time with each other. Brendoncare Park Road has close links with the local community. Its many volunteers are invaluable, organising coffee mornings and social events, running the library service and shopping trolley. Residents are encouraged to continue with previous leisure interests. An activities organiser organises various social activities include keep fit, arts and crafts, baking, reminiscence, quizzes, games and outings.

Meals are seen as an important part of the day and the chef provides a wide variety of home-cooked meals which are appetising and well presented, and always meet high nutritional standards. Special diets and personal preferences can be catered for. Residents can be served in their rooms but many enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the spacious dining room which overlooks the enclosed garden and where their family and friends can join them. We are always pleased to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special events. Family parties can also be arranged. The philosophy of the home is that residents should be able to make decisions for themselves and choose how to spend their time. There are plenty of opportunities to be sociable but for those who prefer more peace and solitude, their privacy is respected. Led by an experienced and well-qualified home manager, the staff at Brendoncare Park Road work as a close team and are committed to the Brendoncare philosophy. They make every effort to provide care which promotes privacy and dignity, and to understand each resident's needs and preferences. Registered nurses are always on duty supported by well-trained care assistants, and all the staff receive continuous education and development. Local GPs support the home and visit regularly so that residents can be registered with the doctor of their choice. A chiropodist and physiotherapist attend the home on a regular basis and other services such as hairdressing can always be arranged.
