Continuing Care

Resthaven has 65 'beds' available for resthome and continuing care. Most are single rooms, with a couple of double rooms for those who like to share or for married couples. The majority of rooms have a courtyard or a view of the Cambridge greenbelt.

56 rooms at Resthaven can be used for either resthome or continuing care, which means being able to stay in the same room if care requirements change.

There is an assortment of lounges, dining rooms and communal spaces throughout Resthaven for all residents and families to use.

We take care of all meals, laundry and cleaning. Our philosophy is to encourage and support residents to remain as independent as they can - if residents would like to do any cooking or baking, wash their own clothes or do their own cleaning, they will be supported by staff to do this.

Dementia Care

Resthaven's Memory Enhancement Unit (Tui) caters for residents living with dementia. There are 15 single rooms available with either ensuite or shared facilities. There are two large internal communal areas; kitchen/dining room and lounge and two lovely garden areas. There are also smaller areas within Resthaven for use by families if they wish to spend quiet time with their family members.

And for those able to... there is the use of the gym, swimming pool and Menzshed in the Village Centre.

Tui provides support and care for able-bodied ladies and gentlemen with 'gentle' dementia. To ensure their safety, the doors are secure with swipe card access. 

The care and support we provide in Tui is based on a variety of philosophies including Eden, V.I.P.S, a restorative model of care and normal life. Together with the latest interventions in dementia-specific care and clinical support, these shape the care and support we provide.
