Day Programme

Our Day Programme is currently on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions, and we look forward to being able to offer the programme again when the Covid situation allows.

Care Centre & Continuing Care

There are two care centres in the Cambridge Resthaven family - one is at Cambridge Resthaven in Vogel Street and the other at Resthaven on Burns.

Our Key Worker personalised approach
At the cornerstone of our care is a personalised approach aimed at providing the best support and care for the ladies and gentlemen who have chosen to live at Resthaven. 

Each resident has their own "Key Worker" – a staff member who is the cornerstone of the service provided to that resident. The key worker gets to know the resident and their family well, and is responsible for coordinating care and services in a manner that is most beneficial for the resident. 
Forming these relationships builds a great sense of community among the residents and their families, our staff and the doctors.

Our Philosophy
Our philosophy is to encourage and support residents to remain as independent as they can. We take care of all meals, laundry and cleaning, but 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.

Cambridge Resthaven - in Vogel Street 
Cambridge 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 can be used for either resthome or continuing care level, which means being able to stay in the same room if care requirements change.

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 a peaceful outdoor area. 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.
