The Grove is located in the heart of Winterbourne, close to local shops and easily accessible by public transport. The building is a beautifully maintained and extended old coach house; its historical significance has been recognised with a blue plaque as it was the childhood home of famous inventor, Harry Grindall Matthews.
We provide safe environments that are adapted to the unique needs of residents with dementia, so they can enjoy as much independence and mental and physical stimulation as possible.
Memory Lane – 1950s Reminiscence Village
With its traditional local pub, quaint post office and greengrocers, Oxo adverts on the walls and ration books on the tables, a stroll along this street is like stepping back to the 1950s.
The lounges and dining areas are all decorated to a very high standard and provide a homely environment for the people who live at The Grove. The three lounges are bright and airy and are equipped with flat screen televisions and stereo equipment.
The Grove has been adapted to ensure that it is as dementia friendly as possible with :-
- Personal name plates on room doors to aid recognition
- Coloured bathroom doors and toilet seats, making them easier to see
- Sensory gardens, built and adapted to stimulate all the senses through the use of colours, smells, textures and sounds
