A pretty market town setting, beautiful grounds, easy rail access to nearby towns and cities and, above all, a highly trained and committed staff team ... these are just some of the features that make Warde Aldam such a welcoming and safe place for people with dementia and nursing care requirements. With space for up to 60 people, many of the single, private rooms at Warde Aldam have en suite facilities, while this purpose-built home also affords breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and gardens, full of wildlife, for residents to enjoy. Here, our staff members take the time and care to get to know each resident, talking to them and their families about their likes and dislikes and personal backgrounds and stories, in order to be able to provide the person-centred care that lies at the heart of MHA's values.
We work hard to support older people to live meaningful lives, and believe that physical and spiritual needs hold equal importance. Several communal areas, including a well-equipped activities room, offer shared space for people to socialise and enjoy some company if they wish. In addition, this single storey home has car parking for visitors' convenience.
MHA is committed to providing alternative therapies such as reflexology and music therapy to residents, while our Chaplain offers pastoral support to all at Warde Aldam, whatever their beliefs.
In these and countless other small ways, we help nurture the well-being of each individual and help all our residents to lead a fulfilled life in the way that they choose.
