About Rosewood Care Home

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 is a selection of shops nearby at Swanscombe and Stone, including a Post Office and newsagents.

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 is decorated to a high standard and offers a "homely feel", providing comfort and security. We have a total of forty-two bedrooms; en-suite facilities are available 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. We encourage families to bring in personal possessions so that their loved one's room resembles "home".

On the ground floor, there is a large dining room area which has an open aspect to the day room. The dining 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.

The home has a lift to assist residents up and down from their bedrooms. Each room is fitted with a call bell system, which can be used to seek assistance and all our bedrooms are fitted with a suite of furniture.

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. Our food is freshly brought in, homemade and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important.

Meals at the Rosewood Care Home Dartford can be tailored to accommodate the specific needs of the resident. Should your loved one have food allergies or sensitivities please be sure to inform our staff so that we may ensure their safety, comfort and health. We also allow for a limited amount of leeway within the food preparation process to accommodate individual tastes. Overall, our seasonally adjusted menu is always a hit with our residents and helps to bolster the homey atmosphere of the facility. Be sure to ask our staff about menu flexibility.

I like the staff at Rosewood as they are welcoming and positive. I personally find it hard having my mother in care but believe that Rosewood provides a positive experience. My Mum's days are purposeful and her care is very good. The activities coordinators try hard to engage as many residents as possible.

Management and staff are efficient, good communications and friendly. Residents are kept clean and tidy. Food provided is nutritious and menus are varied to suit individuals. My mother's room is always clean and well kept. Entertainment is varied and enjoyed by my mother and I believe others. Keeping the dining room floor cleaned after meals could be impressed upon. The residential home meets all of the key activities and I would certainly recommend to others.

I find my father has settled very well and although he has a few times he finds hard the staff are wonderful with him. They are all very kind. The carers are always with the residents. The home is spotless, a peaceful but bustling environment, always something going on. Staff are always happy to be with residents. Relatives are always welcome to talk to management. Father's room is lovely, with his pictures etc. Food is very good and wholesome, very homely and friendly.

I Just wanted to say thank you so much for the care that you have been providing for my mum, you have made the transition from my dad caring for her at home to her being a permanent resident with yourselves as relaxed as possible. I want to also commend your staff, they are a credit to your home. They have all been so friendly to myself and my dad.

Good working relationship with management and carers. Treat mum with the dignity she deserves. She has been a resident for 4 years in January 2017 and her decline with has been well managed by all.

Mum was admitted to Rosewood in January 2016. Severe dementia diagnosed she had not been looking after herself. She is happy well fed and has made lots of friends since being in the home. She is 99 years old and with the care she's getting will make 100 years old next year. She has her own room with her personal stuff, pictures, ornaments, television and CD player, but she prefers to be with everyone else and her newly made friends. She's happy.

Have found Rosewood welcoming and caring. All staff have very caring attitudes and react well when things become difficult. The activities are also organised well and both activities organisers make a great deal of effort. Also very happy with security and safety of residents.

By Graham B (Son of Resident)

Mum has been a resident of Rosewood Care Home for almost 7 years. The staff have always shown affection towards her and go out of their way to sit and talk to her when she seems to be in distress. This is quite a regular requirement as she has vascular dementia. Even staff employed in other areas will take the time to sit with the residents and listen to them. Cleaning is a very difficult and challenging task, but in my experience this is being carried out constantly. Management and staff are very approachable if there is a problem.

Provides peace of mind as much as can be provided during this difficult period of my mother's later years post stroke and heart surgery. Professional responsible and caring always. Would recommend.
