About Rosewood

We care for the elderly who are living with a dementia. We pride ourselves on ensuring that your relative is able to participate in the running of the home, and are promoted to continue to live a "normal" life, where they will go to bed feeling a sense of achievement and self worth.

Our team of staff are dedicated to providing a high quality of care and are trained to a very high standard. We believe strongly that life history is an invaluable tool that we can use to tailor the care to your loved ones needs.

Privacy and dignity are extremely important to our residents and our staff are respectful of this, and realise how important this is to the people entrusted into our care.

The home is conveniently situated close to Bluewater Shopping Centre and is served well by local bus routes. The mainline train station, Greenhithe, is close by and there is also easy access by car via the A2. There are a selection of shops nearby at Swanscombe and Stone, including a Post Office and newsagents.

The home is decorated to a high standard and offers a "homely feel", providing comfort and security. We have a total of forty two bedrooms; most have en-suite facilities and all rooms are equipped with nurse call points and wash hand basins. The majority of the rooms are single but there are three double bedded rooms which are available to offer shared accommodation if this is needed. Your relative prior to admission will be asked to choose what colour they would like their room so that it is decorated prior to admission, and we encourage family's to bring in personal possessions so that their room resembles "home"

On the ground floor there is a large dining room area which has an open aspect to the "L shaped" day room.The day room leads directly onto a patio and flower garden where residents, family and friends can take refreshments and enjoy quality time together in the sunshine.

We offer home cooked food and ensure that there is always a good choice for our residents to choose from. Special dietary needs are catered for and residents who need additional support with eating and drinking are assisted in a dignified and discreet manner. Our menus are constantly monitored by the Manager and a nutritionist is involved in any changes that may be necessary.

We offer all our clients 3 meals a day, which are breakfast, lunch and high tea, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day. We offer a variety of dishes to choose from our menu each day for each meal. Rosewood has a seasonal menu, which works on a 4 weekly cycle. All our food is freshly brought in, homemade and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important. Our menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes. Please feel free to take a look at our Summer Menu.

Regular programmes of outings are arranged and in-house parties and entertainment provide an interesting and varied social life. We also employ an activities co-ordinator who arranges a variety of activities to suit both groups and individuals, which encourages participation. We use reminiscence for a strong basis for our activities.

The home has regular visits by local doctors, district nurses, chiropodists, dentist, optician and a qualified hairdresser.
