Who are we?
Here at Wychdene care home, we provide a range of services and facilities for the elderly. We understand the need for individual care and dignity in old age. The importance of privacy cannot be overstated; and we respect the needs and desires of all those that we care for. Let you people you love live a normal lifestyle; all in one place. At Wychdene.
Wychdene Residential Home is a long-term residential care home for the placement of eople aged 65 onwards. We specialise in providing support to males and females who can no longer live on their own and require help with washing, dressing, mobility and all aspects of personal care. The home is set in large gardens edged by trees a short walk from Broadstairs town centre; which is located on the Kent coast - close to Broadstairs beach. There are many events taking place throughout the year in Broadstairs: Dickens Festival in June, Sea Sunday in July, Broadstairs Folk Week in August and the November 5th Family Fireworks Event to name but a few.
Residents are cared for 24 hours a day by dedicated and friendly staff. All of the staff aim to provide a high standard of care and support without encroaching on the individual's right to privacy or choice. All of our residents have individual person-centred care plans. Visitors are welcomed at any time and light refreshments are provided. Wychdene is designed over three floors; all the corridors are wide and we have an eight person lift enabling us to provide accommodation to residents with wheelchairs or walking aids. There is a separate dining room and the kitchen provides good home cooking for nutritional and preferred diets.
