About Woodside

The house is arranged over three floors and all rooms have call bells and meet the current standards required. Accommodation comprises of four double rooms for couples or for those wishing to share and twenty two single rooms. There are washing facilities in most rooms with toilets and bathrooms close by. The extension to the care home has provided five single rooms that are able to offer en-suite facilities. The communal rooms are large and enjoy panoramic views of the Kent countryside. There is a television lounge for those who favour company, a quiet lounge and a music room where clients can enjoy listening to their favourite music.

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. Woodside 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 Winter Menu.

The staff are all trained to a very high level and regularly attend training courses, ensuring that they continue to achieve the very best standards of care for our clients.

Woodside has a homely atmosphere, where clients are treated as individuals, with an individualised care plan. Clients are encouraged to take part in group activities and are supported in pursuing their own individual hobbies. Outings and entertainment is also regularly provided.

Woodside seeks to provide a settled, homely environment within which to provide personalised good quality care to people over sixty five years of age living with dementia.
