Rose House is a warm and welcoming registered assisted living care home, located close to the busy town centre of Gillingham, Kent.
The property provides safe and comfortable 24-hour care and support environment up to 18 adults with learning disabilities and/or physical, high care and/or complex needs, including dementia. The health and wellbeing of our residents are key priorities.
The home’s 18 single bedrooms (mostly ensuite) and several light and airy communal rooms are located over three floors (with lift/wheelchair access to most floors). All rooms are furnished to a high standard and residents are encouraged to personalise their bedroomswith furniture and other items of their choice.
Residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and are supported to develop practical independent living skills, such as preparing meals in the kitchen, to be eaten seated at the large communcal dining room table (this space is also used by service users for house meetings and activities).
Rose House residents also enjoy spending time in the conservatory and in fine weather a large and attractive garden is a popular choice, for gardening or other group activities, or to simply enjoy some peaceful time on their own. Much of the fruit and vegetables grown in the garden’s raised beds are used in meals prepared at the home. Rose House’s team are able to cater for any specialist diets, including vegetarian and diabetic diets.
We also support residents with visits to the doctor, dentist or chiropodist, as and when required.
The home has its own wheelchair-accessible minibus, both to enable residents to access destinations to which public transport is not readily accessible and for day trips and outings. For longer trips and holidays, our support staff can provide a continuity and consistency of care by supporting residents while they are away.
Gillingham is a friendly and diverse place. The High Street has a thriving market on Mondays and Saturdays. There are excellent transport links into London and fabulous leisure facilities, including the riverside, including Strand Leisure Park, with its crazy golf course, mini railway and classic open air swimming pool lido.
