Emma Duffy, Care Home Manager

We offer first-class nursing care for the elderly on a permanent or respite basis, delivered by highly trained professionals in lovely comfortable surroundings.

Our philosophy is simple; we want everyone to enjoy life to the full. We never forget that all our residents are individuals and we treat them with dignity, privacy and respect while offering freedom of choice and as much independence as possible.

Friends and family are welcome at any time. Hot drinks and snacks are always available to all. Our cook prepares three nutritious meals a day and the menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce. Special diets are catered for.

Residents have freedom to choose what to do and when. There is plenty going on and our activities coordinator puts together a full programme which is adapted to suit the needs and wishes of our residents. Activities include quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, art and craft, baking and wherever possible, trips out and about.

I’d love to show you around the home. So if you should like a tour, or wish to discuss any aspect of elderly care with me, please telephone the home to make an appointment.


Jacqueline M (Daughter of Resident)

My Dad has been in Avonbridge Care Home for 6 weeks now and I can honestly say it’s the first time in 2 years that he has been happy and safe. From day one the staff have been absolutely fabulous, nothing is any bother.

Lesley M (Daughter of Resident)

Mum has been able to take part in a wide variety of activities, movie days, bingo, keep fit, walking group, and when possible, entertainment, nursery visits etc. We can't thank the staff enough for caring for Mum. Well done everyone.

L A (Daughter of Resident)

Care and support is given at all times and as a family member I am happy with this, we are always made aware of all forthcoming social events. My mum is settled and happy within her surroundings.
